Press release   •   Jul 27, 2016 09:28 EDT

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research entitled, “Micro Irrigation Systems Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023,” the global micro irrigation systems market was worth US$ 2,594.7 Mn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$ 9,140.2 Mn by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 15.1% from 2015 to 2023. Europe was the largest market for micro irrigation systems in 2014. Growth in this region is expected to be driven by increasing need for micro irrigation systems for efficient water distribution and the development of sports grounds, stadiums, and public parks in countries such as the U.K, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.

Micro irrigation systems offer high agricultural productivity with minimum water wastage. These systems require less water than traditional flood and furrow irrigation methods. This is expected to be the most important factor for the high adoption of micro irrigation systems in coming years. Micro irrigation systems apply water directly to plants and limited to a specific area rather than watering the whole field as in flood irrigation. This has encouraged people worldwide to use micro irrigation systems in different applications, thereby saving water. Furthermore, government encouragement for the use of micro irrigation systems is expected to substantially drive the market. The governments of U.S., India, China, and other countries offer subsidies on the purchase of micro irrigation systems.

On the basis of product type, the global micro irrigation systems market is segmented into sprinkler and drip irrigation systems. In 2014, among these, sprinkler irrigation systems was the most preferred, and accounted for around 83% of the revenue of the overall micro irrigation systems market. Moreover, this segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 14.5% from 2015 to 2023. The most significant driver of the market for sprinkler irrigation systems is their high adoption in landscaping, turf grass, and fields.
