The North American agricultural irrigation machinery market is growing at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Irrigation mechanization involves the methods through which the crucial and scarce resource of water can be optimally distributed. The most prominent of the mechanisms are the drip and sprinkler irrigation systems. Drip irrigation involves the release of water at the ground level in a drop-wise manner, whereas sprinkler systems deliver water in a more voluminous fashion. Increasing water scarcity, government initiatives in the form of subsidies and the growing sophistication of equipment is driving the market growth.
Key Market Trends
Increasing Water Scarcity Driving the Adoption of Micro-irrigation
In the present agricultural scenario, water scarcity is a major challenge and a key driver for the use of micro-irrigation machinery systems. In the majority of the countries, water scarcity leads to deterioration of the food production quality and quantity. Fragmented land needs a controlled amount of water and the irrigation system has proved fruitful in this area. Irrigated land is twice as productive as the rain-fed land. The cultivation of agricultural crops on arable land with limited resources has become the need of the hour, which can be dealt with efficiently, with the help of drip irrigation.
Increase in Awareness of Drip Irrigation System
An increase in awareness about the benefit of adopting the micro-irrigation system, the irrigation machinery market is seeing growth. his results in enormous financial savings and has lead to higher revenues, globally, in the micro-irrigation systems market. These factors are driving the global market for irrigation machinery. The growing sophistication of equipment and government initiatives in the form of subsidies is driving market growth. In the United State, the increasing water conservation subsidies for drip irrigation are expected to enhance water consumption and crop yield. This is expected to augment the demand for drip irrigation systems.
With the governments’ thrust on augmenting the penetration of water conservation and efficiency driven by the micro-irrigation system, the market is estimated to witness substantial growth in the near future. Some of the key players in the studied market are Nelson Irrigation Corporation, Netafim Limited, Rain Bird Corporation, The Toro Company and Valmont Industries. In February 2018, Valmont Industries acquired a majority stake of Torrent Engineering & Equipment (US). The acquisition would help Valmont to gain access on the high-pressure water pumping and compressed air process systems.
