It entails laying tubes with emitters next to the crops on the soil. The injectors trickle moisture into the surrounding soil of the ground gently. It is 90 % effective in enabling crops to utilize the water delivered, contrasting other methods, including sprinklers, which are approximately 65-75 % functional. It also cuts down on waste and evaporation. It progressively delivers water to the bottom of the plant, wherein it is vitally required.

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the economy globally, negatively influencing the global drip irrigation market growth. The low availability of raw materials and labor has disrupted the production of irrigation components across the globe. However, with the ease of lockdowns and restrictions, the demand for components and technology has increased and is anticipated to propel over the projected period, which in turn boosts the industry growth.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
