By components, controllers segment is estimated to account for a larger market share, in terms of value

The irrigation automation market, based on components, is segmented into controllers, valves, sensors, sprinklers, and other components, which include pressure gauges, monitoring devices, and flow meters. Controllers hold the largest share as they are the central unit of the entire irrigation automation system and are also the costliest component. The increased demand for semi-automatic systems, such as time-based and volume-based systems, in developing countries, has led to an increase in demand for simple controllers across the globe.

By automation type, time-based irrigation automation system is projected to account for a larger market share

The market for irrigation automation, based on automation type, has been segmented into time-based, volume-based, real-time feedback, and computer-based irrigation control systems. Since developing countries majorly use irrigation automation systems for agricultural lands, the need for semi-automated irrigation systems, which would allow timely intervention at different irrigation stages, and is cost-effective remains high. Due to these factors, the time-based segment is projected to account for the largest share in the irrigation automation market.

Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The increased awareness among farmers about the benefits related to the adoption of semi-automated and automated irrigation systems, along with reducing water levels in river basins of the Asia Pacific region, are some of the factors driving the growth of the market. The change in precipitation pattern is compelling farmers to use sensor-based irrigation systems to take better-informed decisions.
