India Micro Irrigation Systems Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period (2022- 2027).

The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was felt on various businesses, including the India microirrigation systems market. The impact of COVID-19 can be largely characterized by an unprecedented disruption in the supply side. Various measures were taken by the government to stem the virus, including the shutdown of plants, and social distancing, among others. Despite qualifying as essential services during lockdowns in many countries, irrigation equipment manufacturers had a difficult time securing inputs and maintenance services for their plants. They also faced significant fiscal stress due to additional costs and lower revenues from state transfers and tariffs.

The Indian farmers have been increasingly encouraged to adopt micro-irrigation systems on open fields for efficient water usage and an increase in agricultural yield. The area under open filed micro-irrigation is higher than in greenhouses in the country. Most of the greenhouses equipped with micro-irrigation in the country are used for horticultural production with more farmers inclining towards greenhouse cultivation owing to benefits such as year-round production. The drip irrigation system dominated the market in 2021, owing to higher subsidies offered by the central and state government in various states. Jain Irrigation Systems Limited, Netafim, Avanijal Agri Automation Pvt. Ltd., Agsmartic Technologies Pvt. Ltd. and Flybird Farm Innovations Pvt. Ltd., among others, have been the most active players in the India micro-irrigation systems market. These players are adopting product innovation as their most adopted strategy to have a competitive edge over other players in the market.

Key Market Trends

Increase in Greenhouse Cultivation is Driving the Market

In recent years, the cultivation of flowers and vegetables has emerged as a major alternative to overcome yield issues, and as greenhouses ensure year-round production, farmers are showing greater interest in it. The greenhouses in the country are, mostly, equipped with micro-irrigation systems., and under the greenhouse segment, drip irrigation is the most dominant micro-irrigation system. Major crops cultivated under greenhouses are leafy vegetables, capsicum, flowers, and tomatoes. Many state governments in the country are granting subsidies for the construction of greenhouses. Thus, increasing intervention of several state governments by providing subsidies, coupled with rising product innovation of major players is anticipated to drive the market further.

Maharashtra is Dominating the Market

The Maharasthra government urged the Centre to allocate more funds under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) to bring at least 50% of agricultural land under microirrigation over the next five years. It also urged the Centre to promote microirrigation to crops beyond high, water-intensive sugarcane and bananas under the ‘More Crop Per Drop’ scheme. The financial burden under microirrigation is shared by the Centre and state in a ratio of 60:40 for 2019-20. for instance, the proposed expenditure for microirrigation in Maharashtra is INR 653.33 crore, of which the Centre’s share is Rs 400 crore and the state’s INR 253.33 crore. Farmers are provided subsidies for the installation of drip irrigation sets and sprinklers in their fields. In terms of acreage, the physical achievement of the state was more under a drip irrigation system. For instance, the acreage covered under the drip irrigation system in 2018 was 110,363 ha, whereas the area covered under sprinkler was 49,595.54 ha.

The sprinkler irrigation system is the most commonly adopted irrigation technology for cultivating maize, pulses, and groundnut. Nearly half of the state's sprinkler irrigation systems sales in 2018 were from the aforementioned crops. The growing awareness of drip irrigation systems is boosting the growth of the market during the forecast period.
