Growing Acceptance of Agriculture Automation, and Precision Farming Penetration Colletively Uphold Sprinkler Irrigation Market Growth

The sprinkler irrigation market is expected to grow due to the government's and industry players' increasing efforts to promote sprinkler irrigation systems, and increase the area covered by them. Achievement of high application efficiency, easy mechanization of the system, low labor cost involved, and high potential of these systems to provide soluble chemicals, and fertilizers in the crops are predicted to support growth further. The world is rapidly approaching a crisis-like situation due to the expanding global population and rapidly depleting water supplies. Given how much water is utilized in agriculture, this industry is focused on implementing sustainable farming techniques and tools, such as spray irrigation.

Sprinkler systems are being installed by farmers worldwide, particularly in developed and developing nations like China, and India, to grow a variety of grain, oilseed, fruit, vegetable, and other crops. It is projected that growing farmer acceptance of agriculture automation technologies and systems, and increased farmer knowledge of precision agriculture will support the expansion of the sprinkler irrigation market. Increased attempts to satisfy end-user requirements in chicken farms and strong demand for systems with good water-use efficiency during extreme climatic conditions are further market-influencing factors. Strong returns on investments also benefit the market over time, a rise in the popularity of organic farming, and adoption of irrigation automation technology in public parks, community botanical gardens, and schoolyards.

Sprinkler Irrigation Market: COVID-19 Impact

It is anticipated that the global COVID-19 epidemic, followed by lockdowns in various economies, will significantly affect the agriculture sector, particularly from the standpoint of labor. However, the pandemic's effect on the sprinkler irrigation market is predicted to be manageable. The availability of automated sprinkler systems, particularly in the developed markets of North America, and Europe, and the lower workforce required to operate this particular irrigation strategy are anticipated to continue to be the key drivers of the market stability. However, COVID-19's economic slowdown can impact the amount of expensive sprinkler irrigation system installations each year in developing nations like India, China, South Africa, Pakistan, and others.

Creation of New Irrigation Products to Drive Sprinkler Irrigation Market

The increasing demand for sprinkler irrigation has prompted improvements in the current irrigation systems for improved water resource monitoring and management, and greater efficiency. Key players in sprinkler irrigation market frequently incorporate new features or improve the ones already in their goods due to technological improvements. Farmers can effectively manage center pivots and irrigation stream flow because of the development of remotely controllable systems and user-friendly control panels. Valmont Industries, and Reinke Manufacturing Company have developed agriculture sensor-based irrigation systems to monitor soil moisture for irrigation. These businesses have also created innovative systems that assist irrigation, fertigation, and chemigation. In addition to creating new systems, irrigation system components have benefited from technical developments. Leading companies like Lindsay Corporation, and Valmont Industries, for instance, concentrate on creating airless wheels for greater flexibility and mobility, user-friendly remote control panels, wireless pumps, anti-theft mechanisms, GPS-enabled irrigation systems, and parts made of various robust materials.

High Government Support to Boost Sprinkler Irrigation Market

The governments of several nations whose water supplies are rapidly depleting or may do so in the coming years are implementing sustainable agricultural development plans. Agri-dominant nations like China, and India offer substantial subsidies for adopting sprinkler systems, helping the business expand. Additionally, it is anticipated that the introduction of numerous programs by the government and non-governmental organizations to increase the area covered by this type of irrigation, along with assistance and technical support provided by the government to unskilled and small farmers for the installation of sprinkler systems in their farms, will favorably result in lucrative growth opportunities for sprinkler irrigation market in the long run.

Inventories, and High Installation Costs Restrict Sprinkler Irrigation Market Expansion

Any advanced irrigation system needs much more money to implement than conventional flood irrigation, and rain-fed crops. The capital investment includes all pipes, sprinklers, pumps, electrical connections, well connectors, power units, and installation fees. The equipment cost makes up half of the capital investment, while the installation cost makes up the other half. Sprinkler irrigation systems are frequently employed for expensive agricultural uses, such as orchards and agricultural fields, which drives the sprinkler irrigation market expansion. A low return on investment would result from this significant investment in low-value crops.

Center Pivot Category Dominates Sprinkler Irrigation Market due to Widespread Use by Growers

The center pivot category held the largest market share, and it is anticipated that it will continue to rule the market during the forecast period. The mechanical irrigation technique known as the center pivot is anticipated to bring in the most money. Growers widely use these systems worldwide because they are recognized to provide great water application uniformity. Some of the key driving forces for the expansion of sprinkler irrigation market include the high compatibility of center pivot systems with crops ranging from cereals, vegetables, and orchard crops, as well as their cheap annual running costs. Due to its self-moving, adaptability, and capacity to function with electric motors, lateral motion irrigation systems are predicted to expand quickly in the next years.

Agricultural Field Crop Category Leads Sprinkler Irrigation Market as Consumption of Staple Foods, and Field Crops

The agricultural field crop (wheat, gram, and pulse) category captures the largest market share, and it is anticipated that it will continue to rule the sprinkler irrigation market during the forecast period. As a result of their widespread consumption as staple foods, field crops like wheat, maize, barley, soybeans, and rice are in high demand. Most of the above varieties require a lot of water for healthy growth, making them water-intensive crops. These crops can be grown successfully using spray irrigation systems without much water. Sprinkler systems' excellent compatibility with various field conditions and simplicity of use are two other important factors to consider when installing them for producing field crops. Additionally, producers are developing novel technologies like small and medium-sized sprinklers that may be put to grow an orchard, vegetable, and other crop varieties inside a constrained space.

North America’s Sprinkler Irrigation Market Spearheads Banking on Well-established Participants

Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that the North America sprinkler irrigation market will account for the largest revenue share. The US, and Canada make up a considerable portion of the market's income in this area. High revenue contribution is ascribed to well-established market participants, cutting-edge agricultural technology advancements, and the accessibility of sizable cultivating lands in numerous North American nations. Additionally, the market here is growing in revenue due to the increasing use of sprinkler irrigation techniques, the lack of farm workers, and the depletion of natural water resources. In the approaching years, it is projected that the development of sprinkler irrigation techniques and their growing uptake by nations like Canada, where water scarcity is becoming a significant problem for crop production, will encourage the spread of these irrigation approaches.

Due to various factors, the Asia Pacific’s sprinkler irrigation market is anticipated to experience stable revenue growth throughout the forecast period. One of the main factors is that agriculture is one of the most important revenue-generating industries in major economies like China, and India. The region's rapidly expanding population is pressuring farmers to use sophisticated irrigation methods, such as sprinkler systems, to grow many crops without wasting water.
