The Global Micro-Irrigation System Market Size is expected to reach USD 29.74 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 11.03% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The Micro-irrigation System market is expected to grow significantly in the forecasting period, by driving the market's Growth are higher productivity requirements from a limited area, increase greenhouse vegetable production, and increased adoption of artificial intelligence in micro irrigation systems. 


Market Overview

Micro irrigation is a modern method of irrigation in which water is irrigated on the land's surface or subsurface using drippers, sprinklers, foggers, and other emitters.Major components of a micro irrigation system are water source, pumping devices (motor and pump), ball valves, fertigation equipments, filters, control valves, PVC joining accessories, and emitters.


The Micro Irrigation Market is estimated to witness continuous growth in the coming years due to the micro irrigation systems helping in reducing water wastage and eliminating soil erosion, as a result of which the market is expected to witness phenomenal demand among emerging nations. Traditional irrigation methods used to irrigate crop fields were difficult to set up and wasted a large amount of water. Hence, micro-irrigation systems are being rapidly implemented by farmers in regions of high-water scarcity. Micro-irrigation systems for example drip and sprinklers are used to reduce the water consumption of crops and help to increase production of yield. Most countries are focused on advanced micro irrigation systems because of water scarcity and the demand for water to improve agricultural productivity. Some of the factors like an increase in water scarcity and rapid growth in greenhouse vegetable production are anticipated to be the main drivers of micro irrigation. The demand for micro irrigation has been witnessing constant growth in developing countries, such as India, China, South Africa, Russia, and Brazil. These countries have the largest population, and an increase in demand for food grains are major key factors that would drive the micro irrigation market.

Driving Factors

In some countries, due to water scarcity issues governments and farmers pushing toward the adoption of micro irrigation system. The rising awareness of farmers about the advantages of micro-sprinkler irrigation has led to a shift from flood irrigation to micro-sprinkler systems. Micro-irrigation systems such as sprinklers and drippers are witnessing high demand, which is expected to increase the market’s growth. Some factors such as increasing production of greenhouse vegetables, use of artificial intelligence in micro irrigation, and high production requirement from limited farm areas are primarily driving the market of micro irrigation systems. Increased application of different irrigation systems such as micro-sprinklers for the garden, garden micro drip systems, drip irrigation adjustable sprayers, rain bird micro-irrigation systems, and micro-irrigation spray sets. Due to these accessories and products the global market is expected to rise ascendingly in the upcoming period.


Restraining Factors

Micro irrigation systems require continuous maintenance and service and also the expensive initial cost can be more than commercial systems, this is the major factor restraining the market. The cost of tubing, emitters, and acquiring pumps, especially for large-scale operations, is a major disadvantage of micro-irrigation. If the water is not properly filtered and the equipment is not properly maintained, it can result in clogging. Clogging directly impacts on uniformity of water application, increased maintenance costs, and results in crop damage and yield. Lack of knowledge about the advantages of micro irrigation systems for small-scale farmers in backward economies such as reduced evaporation losses, conveyance losses, and seepage is a major factor to hamper the market growth.


Market Segmentation

The Global Micro-Irrigation System Market share is classified into the type, crop, and end user.

  • Drip irrigation segment is expected to hold largest market over the forecast period.

Based on the type, the global micro-irrigation system market is segmented into drip irrigation systems, sprinkler irrigation systems, and other micro-irrigation systems. Drip irrigation held the largest share of the market. The reason behind the growth is the high efficiency in saving water, along with reducing the rate of salinization and improving the crop yield. Drip irrigation is expected to exhibit enormous growth during the predictable years owing to the rising adoption of drip irrigation across several developing economies for the production of a range of crops. Due to its high efficiency and diversified application, it supports the growth of this market.


  • In 2021, the orchard crops segment held the largest share of the market.

 Based on the crop, the Global Micro-irrigation System Market Size is segmented into Orchard Crops, Vineyards, Plantation Crops, and Field Crops. The orchard crops segment held the largest share of the market. The increase in the growth of greenhouse vegetable production is driving the application of micro irrigation systems for orchard crops. Different types of vegetables, fruits, and other horticultural crops need a specific environment to grow properly; hence irrigation is a good fit for these crops. Increasing demand for high-value and cash crops across the globe is boosting the growth of this market.


  • In 2021, farmers segment dominated the market of micro irrigation.

On the basis of end-user, the global micro-irrigation system market is differentiated into farmers, industrial users, and others. Among the end-user segment, farmers dominated the market of micro irrigation systems and this trend is expected to continue throughout the forecasted period. The reason behind the growth is the use of micro irrigation techniques protects these farmers from unforeseen, unpredicted, and unfavourable weather conditions.
