The irrigation machinery market in Germany is estimated to register a CAGR of 15.5% for the forecast period 2020-2025. 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. More than 47% of the German territory is covered by agricultural land, which is the highest within Europe. This shows a lot of scope for agricultural irrigation machinery in the country. Sprinkler irrigation and drip irrigation are the two popular forms of irrigation prevalent in Germany. 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 it 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 countries, water scarcity leads to deterioration of the food production quality and quantity. Fragmented land needs a controlled amount of water where the irrigation system proved fruitful. Irrigated land is twice productive than the rain-fed land.

Key Market Trends

Drip Irrigation System is Leading the Market

The drip irrigation segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Surveys of the German Irrigation Association undertaken in the 2017 and 2018 indicate that about 500 000 ha are equipped for drip irrigation in Germany. An area of about 5,000 ha is under micro-irrigation, mainly drip irrigation in vineyards. In the north-eastern part of the country, there is about 600,000 ha of equipped lowlands. Combined drainage/subsurface irrigation facilities were installed there to manage peat soils and groundwater near sandy sites. Mostly, sub­sur­face drip irrigation systems are used in the countries to augment fodder maize production. This allows the farmers to focus on the cattle, while still ensuring that there is sufficient food for the animals with the right nutritional quality. This 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 only factor which may restrict the drip irrigation systems market is its high cost, which farmers have to incur, especially when they are far from the water source.

Increasing Farm Mechanization is Driving the Market

Germany, the country is known for its engineering expertise is also at the same time incorporating its technical ingenuity to develop its agricultural sector. With the massive technological progress in the country, Germany has also developed a very well trained and skilled workforce to use its state-of-the-art agricultural machinery and enable the utilization of top technology in the crop fields. This can be backed by the fact that the area harvested under the primary crops in the country has seen an increasing trend in the past few years from 8.86 million hectares in 2015 to 8.91 hectares in 2018 and is further estimated to rise in our forecast period by a CAGR of about 2%. According to a report by the United Nations Statistics Division, Germany was one of the top five importers of agricultural machinery from the United States in 2018. German farmers also receive a subsidy from the European Union annually for the investment in their farms. This enables them to invest in modern machinery that is otherwise expensive. The above factors are substantially driving the market for agricultural irrigation machinery in the country.

Competitive Landscape

The market share analysis indicates that the Germany Agricultural Irrigation Machinery market studied is consolidated, with major companies accounting for about majority of the market share. 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. This is expected to benefit companies, such as Jain Irrigation Systems Limited, EPC Industries Ltd, and Netafim Ltd, among others.
