Global Smart Irrigation Market Trends:

Increasing Awareness of Water Conservation

In the smart irrigation market overview, the rising awareness regarding the need for water conservation is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. With water becoming an increasingly scarce resource, especially in arid regions, smart irrigation system is emerging as a solution to minimize wastage. Moreover, government authorities of various nations are taking initiatives to develop efficient irrigation systems to improve agricultural productivity. For instance, the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) in India allocated US$ 100 Billion to develop micro-sprinkler irrigation. The government has set a target of covering 100 lakh hectares for micro-irrigation within the next five years. Additionally, the government of Colorado declared a serious water crisis in the south basin of the Colorado River in 2022. Ms. Kyrsten Sinema, Colorado's agricultural minister, announced a US$ 4 Billion compensation to help alleviate the adverse effects of the drought on the Colorado River. These funds were granted for renovating the dams of the river, its infrastructural development, and adequate water usage using drip irrigation. Apart from this, various private entities operating in the global smart irrigation market are increasingly investing in advanced irrigation technologies to effectively utilize water and facilitate sustainable development. For instance, in October 2021, Hunter Industries, a prominent player in the smart irrigation market, collaborated with the environmental technology company, Phyn. Together, they introduced "Phyn Plus," a smart water monitoring and leak detection system that can be integrated with irrigation systems. Innovations and collaborations like these are anticipated to create a positive outlook for the future of the smart irrigation market.

Growing Global Population and Food Demand

The increasing global population is exerting pressure on the agriculture sector to produce more food. Smart irrigation systems are playing a crucial role in improving crop yields while optimizing water usage. According to a study by the World Bank in 2017, the demand for food will rise due to the increasing population. Hence, to meet the food requirement agricultural production will need to expand 70% by 2050. Consequently, to achieve this target smart irrigation methods are needed to increase crop production by enhancing its productivity, as many areas don't have enough irrigation facilities. In addition to this, various concerned authorities and private entities across the world are forming partnerships and collaborations to increase crop yield by applying an accurate amount of water during the irrigation process. For instance, WaterSense is a partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to encourage water-efficient products and resources helpful for saving water. Similarly, the European Union announced a program "Water and Energy Advanced Management for Irrigation (WEAM4i)" to improve water usage efficiency and reduce the energy costs in irrigation systems and also help in ensuring food security on a global basis. Additionally, AGCO, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, collaborated with Robert Bosch GmbH, BASF Digital Farming and Raven Industries Inc., with the objective of evaluating targeted spraying technology to make the application of crop protection products more effective and efficient by reducing crop input costs while driving farm and environmental sustainability.

Advancements in Sensor Technologies and Data Analytics

Advancements in sensor technologies and data analytics are revolutionizing the irrigation industry. Various key market players are launching smart irrigation systems equipped with sophisticated sensors that can measure soil moisture levels, detect weather conditions, and assess plant requirements with precision. According to the smart irrigation market statistics, IBM and Texas A&M AgriLife are working together to help farmers receive insights for water usage, which can further crop yield increases while decreasing economic and environmental costs. Texas A&M AgriLife and IBM will deploy and scale Liquid Prep, a tech solution that provides “when to water” decision support to farmers, in arid regions of the United States. Similarly, in July 2020, Lindsay Corporation, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, acquired Net Irrigate, LLC, an agriculture Internet of Things (IoT) technology company that provides remote monitoring solutions for irrigation customers. The acquisition furthers the two companies' shared goals of delivering innovative real-world solutions to help growers increase water and energy efficiency and exercise more sustainable farming practices while operating and maintaining irrigation systems. In addition to this, in July 2023, Deere & Company acquired Smart Apply, Inc., a precision spraying equipment company based in Indianapolis, Indiana. This move will help Deere & Company to expand a portfolio of solutions to help farmers address their biggest challenges around labor, input costs, and regulatory requirements, and achieve environmental goals. Technological advancements like these are anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities to the overall market in the coming years.

Government Initiatives Promoting Sustainable Agriculture

Governments across the globe are increasingly focusing on sustainable agricultural practices to ensure food security and conserve natural resources, which is further catalyzing the market for smart irrigation across the globe. The concerned regulatory authorities, banks, and private entities are collaborating to provide smart irrigation solutions to farmers at subsidized rates. For instance, in 2021-2022, the Indian government decided to double the money in a special fund for small-scale irrigation to US$ 1.32 Billion. This fund, set up with the help of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), is part of a bigger plan called the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) to help farmers water their crops more effectively. Moreover, in August 2021, the Consulate General of Israel to South India, in collaboration with the United Planters' Association of Southern India (UPASI), Jain Irrigation Systems, and NaanDanJain Irrigation, launched the Smart IoT Irrigation Project in Tea Plantation in Ooty, Tamil Nadu. Smart IoT Irrigation is an innovative Israeli technique that uses water judiciously and helps farmers achieve higher levels of crop yield with minimal water wastage.  The convergence of government policies with sustainable agriculture practices is a significant driver in the adoption of smart irrigation solutions.
