Product Overview

irrigation Automation Market is anticipated to surpass USD 3.5 Billion by 2030 from USD 10 Billion in 2020 at a  CAGR of 20% throughout the forecast period, i.e. 2020-2030

Irrigation is referred to as artificial land or surface use of water. Despite inadequate rainfall, irrigation processes can be utilized for the production of crops. An integrated irrigation facility implies the system operation without or only with limited human activity in addition to the control. With timers, sensors, computers, or mechanical equipment, almost any machine can be controlled. It enhances the irrigation cycle and allows producers to focus on other essential agricultural tasks. On the other hand, such a program may be costly, very complicated, and can require specialists to formulate and execute.

Market highlights

irrigation Automation Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 20% in 2030.

Rapid computerization and the use of smart technology for agriculture, government water management measures, and farming recognition of the advantages of irrigation automation are some of the contributing factors to market development. 

Global Irrigation Automation Market Expected Market Growth

Irrigation Automation Market

Irrigation Automation Market: Segments            

Drip irrigation is anticipated to witness the fastest growth in the market during the projected period 

Automatic drip irrigation has an over-10 year service life and a greater capacity rate, making them the most common type of irrigation solution available to vegetable and line crops in countries like the USA, Canada, Brazil, and Spain.

During the forecast period, the automated systems category is expected to grow at a rapid rate  

The automated system market is expected to expand at an increased pace due to the high rates of automatic irrigation solutions used in agricultural sector applications in countries such as the US, Canada, Spain, Italy, and China.

Irrigation Automation Market

In the form of automation, the market of irrigation automation is anticipated to be dominated by a time-based system

Time- and volume-oriented systems are semi-automatic and give the consumer the opportunity of volume or time regulation of the irrigation cycle. This versatility is more popular among farmers owing to the time-based systems.

The non-agricultural sector in irrigation automation is expected to be the fastest-growing business segment in the forecast period 2020-2030

The growth of golf courses and other sports facilities around the world has contributed to the introduction of a watering system. Such automated systems guarantee on-time spraying and lower water charges for owners and farmers with the necessary amount of water. The water shortage and a decline in the annual rainfall in the area of Asia-Pacific are set to propel irrigation market development.

Market Dynamics


Motivation from government bodies

With assistance from many national governments, the irrigation automation market is expanding and the increasing demand for food with an ever-growing population is promoting water and energy preservation. In combination with erratic precipitation trends, the growing water crisis is negatively affecting the use of traditional agricultural irrigation methods and is thus spurring the widespread use of advanced irrigation methods. Also, the introduction of modern technologies such as water management technology focused on soil humidity and the environment enhances the implementation of irrigation automation systems. The Australian government, for example, has launched many research and development programs aimed at enhancing water quality. Also, the government has introduced an Irrigation Improvement Program on-farm to help upgrade irrigation facilities of particular irrigators or to adjust irrigation practices to save water.


Water shortage and the lack of awareness in underdeveloped regions

Demand for worldwide irrigation automation is increasingly growing and rapid expansion is anticipated to affect the water supplies for the future generations making it big trouble according to the environmentalists. Golf courses, urban landscaping, and residential plantation need water in large amounts which are anticipated to falter water supply. Some of the underdeveloped nations in MENA and APAC regions have seen tremendous challenges in adopting technologically advanced irrigation techniques due to the lack of IT infrastructure and lack of awareness to make use of better technologies this hinders the growth of the irrigation automation market.

Irrigation Automation Market: Regions

Irrigation Automation Market is segmented based on regional analysis into five major regions. These include North America, Latin America, Europe, APAC, and MENA. In 2019 the area of Asia-Pacific showed the largest market share. The factors that drive the market growth are decreased water levels in Asia Pacific river basins along with greater growers' understanding of the importance of semi-automated and automated irrigation solutions. Due to the existence of largely agricultural land, and the increasing knowledge amongst farmers and producers of modern irrigation solutions, APAC has the largest market share in irrigation technology. Technological advances are expected to extend the field of automatic irrigation in Asia by applying to emerging economies. Thus in the APAC region, the market growth is anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the forecast period of 2020-2030. India and China have large intensively farmed areas in this region; this gives the suppliers of automated irrigation systems substantial development prospects. In the region, the total irrigation automation industry accounts for over 30% of revenue in 2019. Concerning market share, in the global irrigation automation market, Europe and North America took second and third place in 2019.
