The Global Smart Irrigation Market size is expected to reach $3,312.2 million by 2027, rising at a market growth of 14.3?GR during the forecast period.
Irrigation is one of the crucial processes in agriculture, in which farmers manage the amount of water given to the plants at a fixed interval of time. With the advancement in agricultural technologies, many advanced agricultural systems and solutions are introduced to the market, which save the time and efforts of the farmers. One such solution is smart irrigation that provides efficient and timely management of different kinds of irrigation systems like drip, sprinkler, surface, pivot, center, and manual to help in the conservation of time and water resources.
Smart irrigation systems are the integration of numerous advanced solutions that helps farmers for remote supervision and automation of the irrigation procedure. These systems generally consist of controllers, sensor-based sprinklers, and water meters to evaluate soil nutrient content, moisture, humidity, and salinity levels.
Market Growth Factors: Increase in the number of smart cities along with the high requirement for effective irrigation systems
Smart irrigation systems are widely used in building smart cities in order to conserve water. The concept of a smart city is gaining more momentum across various nations of the world since this concept focuses on the sustainable management of water in commercial and residential spaces. The growing urbanization is leading to the reduction in the green cover to make a pathway for concrete infrastructure, which makes it essential to manage the green balance and thus, implement smart irrigation concept for it.
Improvements in technologies and the emergence of 5G network
With the introduction of 5G network, companies are highly inclining towards making their products more advances and easier to utilize, which is benefitting farmers and residential users. In the past few years, conventional hardwire systems are improved and updated to wireless data communication systems. These advanced wireless sensors provide convenience & mobility and the introduction of radiofrequency technology in irrigation with wireless signal communication systems would offer better connectivity.
