Ground-based monitoring systems to hold the largest market share during the forecast period

Ground-based monitoring systems are expected to hold the largest market share in the soil monitoring market during the forecast period owing to the surge in the application of several soil monitoring sensors among progressive farmers worldwide. Ground-based monitoring does not require strong technical know-how, which is a prominent factor contributing to the large market share. Technological advancements in smart sensors as well as the integration of such sensors with IoT modules have led to the demand for connected farming.

Software offering to grow at the highest CAGR in the soil monitoring market from 2022 to 2027

The software segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period as solutions are deployed in data management and in-field mobility solutions for the delivery of valuable information to farmers. These software solutions provide a detailed analysis of the soil health and farm operations that need to be carried out to ensure improved yields, soil testing information, and application-specific data. These software products enable farmers to monitor and control their field operations using smartphones, PCs, or laptops, reducing their field trips. It helps save time and boosts productivity. The hardware segment held the largest share of the soil monitoring market in 2021, and a similar trend is expected to be observed from 2022 to 2027. Hardware components, sensors, devices, and equipment are increasingly adopted in agricultural and non-agricultural applications. The integration of various sensors into remote monitoring solutions owing to the reduced cost of these sensors has resulted in the largest market share of the hardware segment.

Non-agricultural application to grow at the highest rate between 2022 and 2027

The non-agriculture application is on an upward growth trajectory owing to the adoption of various portable devices and soil scanners for soil monitoring purposes, especially for weather forecasting and flood and drought management. Sports turf management, landscaping, and ground care are some of the prominent applications in the soil monitoring market, which could see high growth in the coming years.
