(I-BusinessNews.Com, October 06, 2020 ) The global drip irrigation market is projected to grow from USD 5.5 billion in 2020 to USD 9.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.8%. The rise in the popularity of drip irrigation solutions can be attributed to government initiatives, water conservation activities, enhancement of production, and decrease in production cost. Markets such as China and India are among the key markets targeted by drip irrigation manufacturers and distributors due to the large agriculture sector driven by regional demand and exports that are adopting drip irrigation services in the region.

Constraint: High initial cost of large-scale drip irrigation systems
The cost of the initial investment is high, which makes the use of drip irrigations systems uneconomical for low-value crops. The cost of drip irrigation equipment varies with crop type, region, soil, water conditions, fertigation equipment, and filtration equipment. This type of irrigation is considered to be feasible for horticultural crops and cash crops such as grapes, sugarcane, tomatoes, and onions, based on their high economic value. Drip irrigation is expensive due to the requirement of large quantities of piping & filtration equipment.
Based on crop type, the field crops segment is projected to be the most significant contributor in the drip irrigation market during the forecast period
The demand for field crops is likely to record a higher market share between 2020 and 2025. Drip irrigation has been gaining significance among field crop growers for its precise application to the crops, and thus, is offering increased benefits such as reduced costs, higher profit margins, and lesser water and fertilizer requirements. Drip irrigation proved to be profitable for growing vegetables, orchard crops, and turf & lawns; however, in the last decade, its use in field crops such as corn, sugarcane, and cotton has also been profitable. The increasing prices of field crops have also fueled the market growth.
Ease of installation and higher levels of efficiency drive prospects for inline emitters in the drip irrigation market.
The market is segmented on the basis mode of emitter type into inline and online emitters. Inline emitters are usually present within the laterals with equal spacing. Inline emitters may be flat boat-shaped, cylindrical, or may be attached to the inner wall of the lateral. Inline emitters are usually used for row crops or field crops such as onion, chili, potato, turmeric, vegetables, sugarcane, and cotton. They are prepared from superior-quality linear low-density polyethylene material. They help provide maximum resistance against clogging. Inline emitters are suitable for surface irrigation and subsurface irrigation.
Opportunity: Increasing adoption of precision agriculture and sustainable practices
Commercial horticulturalists have been consistently trying to use resources to maximize profits, of which precision farming and sustainable agriculture plays a key role. Considering the rising production cost, farmers are trying to implement drip irrigation to increase irrigation efficiency and crop productivity. There is an emerging trend for an increase in greenhouse vegetable production. An increase in acreage under protected farming systems is expected to drive the drip irrigation systems market. The use of drip irrigation reduces environmental degradation and minimizes groundwater table depletion. It is considered sustainable, as the water usage rate is at gallons per hour instead of gallons per minute, which also reduces evaporation and runoff. Growing awareness, regulatory reforms, and agricultural policy for sustainably produced foods would contribute to the growth of the drip irrigation market.

Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the drip irrigation market by 2025
The Asia Pacific drip irrigation market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to the high agricultural production, government initiatives incentivizing the adoption of drip irrigation systems, and increase in irrigable areas in the region which has resulted in water scarcity across multiple countries in the region. Asia Pacific was the largest consumer of drip irrigation and is a key exporter of agricultural products. The region is mainly dominated by large-scale operations, primarily exports, with an organized distribution chain.
