Mechanized irrigation system is application of water to agriculture and fields through mechanical aids such as motor, spray, nozzles, etc. It is adopted in small and large fields owing to the benefits offered such as it reduces the wastage of water and human efforts. Government is actively promoting for the use of irrigation system due to scarcity of water, decreasing soil fertility by excessive use of water and continuous use of land for cultivation.
Growing adoption of automated irrigation system, scarcity of water and increasing farmer's awareness about the benefits of mechanized farming and irrigation. Furthermore, farmers and others are increasingly using wastewater treatments for recycling,
North America is expected to dominate global mechanized irrigation system market during forecast period 2019-2026. This attributed to growing nursery and gardening business where mechanized irrigation is predominantly used it. For instance, according to the National Association of Landscape Professionals, Nursery & Garden stores in the US industry was valued at USD $48 billion in 2018 with 4.2% growth, attributed to increases in spending on home improvements.
Asia Pacific is projected to gain considerable momentum for global mechanized irrigation system market during forecast period 2019-2026. It is attributed to increased attention of youth towards agriculture and choosing agriculture as carrier option and expected to adopt mechanization and automation system in agriculture. Additionally, government initiatives and subsides propel the demand for the irrigation system. For instance, by the report of International Commission on irrigation and drainage, government organizations, NGOs and private organizations partnering to strengthen sustainable farming and mechanized irrigation system. Furthermore, Korean National Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (KCID) organized training program on the theme “Performance Assessment of Irrigation Systems” in 2018, which intensifies the growing importance of mechanized irrigation system in small and large scale farmers.
Developing economies of Middle East & Africa are expected to show significant growth in mechanized irrigation systems market during the assessment period 2019–2026. Government supportive initiatives and growing investment agriculture production. For instance, UAE is significantly investing in landscaping and horticulture projects where vast amount of irrigation water required to ensure that landscapes are built and maintained to perfection.
Mobile irrigation system is significantly gaining popularity owing to it unique benefits and convenience offered to small agricultural farms such as it is cost-efficient and easy to implement. For instance, on the report of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in 2015, the average size of the Indian farm holding was 1.15 hectare and 67% of India’s farmland was held by the marginal farmers.
Nursery and floriculture sector is expected to dominate mechanized irrigation system market during forecast period, on account of, growing floriculture market and advantages of automation irrigation in flower growing, for instance, according to International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences (IJCMAS) on 2018, a rose plant is grow at height 14.60 cm in 8 days without automation irrigation and without it grow at height 14.75 cm. Furthermore, global exports was valued at 3.04 billion in 2010 which is almost reached at USD 4 billion in 2012 with 24% annual growth rate.
