The Africa agricultural irrigation machinery market was valued at USD XX in 2015 and is estimated to reach USD XX by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 7.45% during the forecast period. Irrigation mechanization involves methods through which the crucial and scarce water resource can be optimally distributed. The most prominent mechanisms are the drip and sprinkler irrigation systems. Drip irrigation involves the release of water at the ground level in a dripping manner, whereas, sprinkler systems deliver water in a more voluminous fashion. Water is the basic agricultural input required in any geographical condition. Before the advent of mechanization, farmers depended on natural sources for irrigation. However, mechanization in agriculture has moved well past tractors, to encompass every aspect of the crop production cycle. Such mechanization not only increases productivity and yield per hectare, but also reduces the water consumption per farm. In the current agricultural scenario, water scarcity is a major challenge and a key driver for the use of micro irrigation machinery systems. In most of the countries, water scarcity leads to deterioration of the quality of food produced and reduction in quantity. Fragmented land needs controlled amount of water where the irrigation system proved fruitful. Irrigated land is twice productive than the rain-fed land. Market Dynamics

Main factors that drive the growth of this market are the increasing adoption of technology-driven agricultural machinery and growing demand for food due to the increasing population. However, most of the farmers are small holding farmers and, thus, cannot afford the sophisticated irrigated machinery. Some of the tropical countries, where most of the agricultural lands are rain-fed, irrigations systems are useful only for a short period and customization of the crop, based on the geography, is quite challenging. People belonging to rural areas, with lower than average income, are sceptical to using the advanced machinery where marketing promotions failed without local networks.
