Global Statistics Representing Mechanized Irrigation Systems Market Scenario
Mechanized irrigation is a system of applying water to crops and filed where mechanical aids are primarily used such as pumps, sprinkler, spray nozzles, pressure regulators or other mechanical means. Decreasing surface and ground water level, fertility of the soil is expected to accelerate the use of mechanized irrigation system. It is progressively being used by the farmers and others owing to its benefits offered such as it reduces the wastage of water and appreciate the convenience along with reduction in the cost of labour force required for watering purposes.
Increasing adoption of the modern agriculture practices to produce food grains in larger scale by utilizing minimum water with respect to conserve water and focusing to meet future food grain demand are projected to witness considerable growth in mechanized irrigation system. For instance, according to The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the global food production will double by 2050, and 70% of the world's additional food needs can be produced only by adapting modern agriculture which includes, use of hybrid seeds, technologically advanced equipment, mechanised irrigation system and others.
Global mechanized irrigation systems market was valued at USD 8,521.4 million in 2018 and is expected to reach a value of USD 31660.02 million at a CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period, 2019–2026.
Global mechanized irrigation systems market is segmented by type, application and field size.
By type, mechanized irrigation systems market is segmented into centre pivot, lateral pivot, permanent set, solid set, side roll, mobile and others. Centre pivot irrigation system is likely to gain major popularity in the farmers attributed to their cost effectiveness and other benefits such as a high degree of uniformity of applied water, it can be operated at lower pressure which conserve energy and in addition to that, it is applicable to almost all crops such as arable crops, fruit trees etc.
By application, mechanized irrigation systems market is segmented into agricultural crops, wasteland, lawns & gardens, nursery crops and others. Lawns & gardens are expected to boost demand for mechanized irrigation systems during forecast period 2019- 2026. Lawns & Garden are majorly using mechanized irrigation system which allows them to save time and water. Additionally, they don't need to maintain separate labour force for watering purposes. For instance, according to information given by Foodtank- a non-profit organization, In United States, 15 organizations planning to create edible landscapes on lawns, schoolyards and parks and it is assumed to demand 34 billion litters of water per day which intensifies the tremendous demand for mechanized irrigation systems.
By field size, mechanized irrigation systems market is segmented into small, medium, and large. Large sized fields are projected to adopt mechanized irrigation systems and gained notable market growth during assessment period 2019 - 2026. This growth is attributed to the benefits offered such as equal watering to crops which reduce loss of water, save time and even it can eliminate harmful chemical runoff during application of fertilizer. According to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 1,421 and 2,086 is the average size of the large and very large family farms respectively which compulsory expected to use mechanized irrigation systems.
Geographically, the global mechanized irrigation systems market is segmented into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America and the Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).
North America is likely to boost the demand for mechanised irrigation system during forecast period, in account of, climatic changes, drought condition and water shortages. Furthermore, according to the Federation of American Scientists in between 2008 to 2013, in United States, around 470,000 acres of farmland was unirrigated due to surface and groundwater shortages.
Asia Pacific is expected to hold considerable market share in global mechanized irrigation systems market owing to government initiatives and increasing adoption of drip and sprinkler irrigation by small and large farmers. For instance, on the report of Global Water Forum, Due to recurring droughts in years 2012, 2015 and 2016 which impel Indian government to promote irrigation method and launched Prime Minister’s Agriculture Irrigation Programme. Furthermore, the think tank of India i.e. NITI Aayog has drafted a concept of seeking private participation in managing and boosting the reach of micro irrigation across the country which augment mechanized irrigation framework in the region.
Europe is projected to gain significant traction in global mechanized irrigation systems market in further years, owing to the growing maintenance cost of sports pitches and increasing trend of maintaining lawn areas for school and colleges playgrounds. For instance, European Seed Association said, the artificial turf in pitches heated to 47°C to 69°C, where irrigation is extensively used to maintain temperature. Furthermore, Europe has around 1,234 number of stadiums, for these attributions mechanized irrigation technique which has gained major demand in region.
LAMEA is likely to witness balanced growth in mechanized irrigation systems market. According to a study conducted in the tropical Xingu Basin of Mato Grosso, Brazil, agricultural water usage is expected to climb because the government of Brazil announced and aimed to double crop yields by 2030. Therefore, irrigation systems will likely to be installed in coming years.
Some of the key players in the global mechanized irrigation systems market are Driptech India Pvt. Ltd. (India), Rain Bird Corporation (United States), Rivulis Irrigation (India), Lindsay Corporation (United States), Jain Irrigation Systems Limited (India), Reinke Manufacturing Company, Inc. (United States), Netafim Limited (Israel), Premier Irrigation Adritec (India), Valmont Industries (United States), The Toro Company (United States), Hunter Industries (United States) and Others.
