The government initiatives for promoting water conservation has led to surge in the adoption of smart irrigation systems. In addition to this, factors such as growth of smart cities and need for efficient irrigation systems, decreasing cost of sensors and controllers used in smart irrigation systems are expected to fuel the smart irrigation market.
“Weather-based systems are expected to hold larger share of the smart irrigation market during forecast period”
The weather-based systems is expected to holds the major market share as compared to sensor-based type systems. Weather-based systems have become quite popular among homeowners, commercial building contractors, and landscaping and golf course managers. Owing to the high adoption of weather-based systems in the non-residential segment, they account for a larger market size. Major factors driving the growth of the smart irrigation market include increasing government initiatives to promote water conservation, rising demand for food production, and automatic scheduling of irrigation, leading to reduced labor costs. In addition, the increasing importance of effective irrigation solutions and watering practices has stimulated the smart irrigation market growth.
“Controllers held the largest share in the global smart irrigation market by component in 2020”
Controllers held the largest share for the smart irrigation market in terms of components owing to the increasing adoption of this technology for irrigation scheduling in agriculture, residential and commercial property, lawns and gardens, and landscaping. Smart controllers use weather and sensor data to automatically adjust irrigation schedules to any environmental changes such as temperature, humidity, and soil moisture content. Smart controllers have additional features, such as multiple programs to allow different watering frequencies for different types of plants, rain delay settings, input terminals for sensors such as rain/freeze and soil moisture, and remote operation. The technological advancements in the development of controllers has lead to a rising adoption controllers. The controllers have been widely used by the large scale commercial farms to control the irrigation application but is reltively new to the small farms and for residential or commercial sectors. Over the past few years, the number of smart controller products on the market has increased dramatically, with different manufacturers opting for different control technology solutions.
