Global Microirrigation Systems Market Report: Size, Share, Growth and Opportunities

Microirrigation systems, also known as drip irrigation or trickle irrigation systems, are irrigation methods that deliver water directly to the root zone of plants in small, controlled amounts. Unlike traditional irrigation methods such as flood or sprinkler irrigation, which apply water over the entire soil surface, microirrigation systems apply water precisely where it is needed, minimizing water wastage and optimizing water use efficiency. The microirrigation systems market size is estimated at USD 10.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 17.8 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2023 to 2028.

Microirrigation systems offer an effective solution to optimize water usage in agriculture, especially in regions facing water scarcity or limited water resources like parts of France. By delivering water directly to the root zone of plants in controlled amounts, microirrigation systems minimize water wastage and improve water use efficiency. This is particularly important in areas where water availability is limited or where traditional irrigation methods may result in excessive water loss through evaporation or runoff.

Plantation crops is the fastest-growing segment during the forecasted period. Tea, coffee, and cocoa are some of the majorly cultivated plantation crops. Plantation crops are well-known for producing a high yield per unit area. They are carefully selected and bred for maximum production, resulting in a large output of raw materials or finished goods. Plantation crops are generally cultivated continuously over a period of many years. These crops’ management practices, such as mulching, terracing, and contour plowing, assist to prevent soil erosion and preserve soil fertility.

In France, the rise in population coupled with the increased demand for food production is expected to drive the global microirrigation systems market growth. As the population grows, there is a corresponding increase in the demand for food to meet the needs of the growing population. This heightened demand for food necessitates efficient agricultural practices to enhance productivity and ensure food security.

Climate issues in the Asia Pacific area include irregular rainfall patterns, droughts, and heat waves. Microirrigation systems provide regulated and efficient water distribution, increasing resilience to severe climatic circumstances. Farmers may tune irrigation schedules and water applications to individual crop demands, allowing crops to endure and adapt to changing climatic circumstances. In some areas, irrigation water may include excessive quantities of salts, heavy metals, or other impurities. To eliminate these pollutants, microirrigation systems may be outfitted with filtration and purification devices, ensuring that plants receive clean water. Microirrigation improves crop health and yield by mitigating the negative impacts of inadequate water quality.
