Report Outlook

The global irrigation controllers market was valued at USD 1202.09 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.40% during the forecast period. Irrigation controllers are crucial for delivering a lot of water at the proper moment to maximize agricultural output and achieve high levels of water and chemical efficiency. It is advised to employ smart irrigation technology, such as controllers, as many locations are experiencing declining water supplies and drought conditions. Because irrigation controllers apply the right amount of water when it is required, water and money are conserved. In contrast to conventional irrigation equipment, smart irrigation systems may be customized to match the needs of a specific crop or lawn and operate automatically.

Governments all across the world are taking several actions, such as establishing rules on farms and increasing funding to support the agriculture sector. To enhance agricultural sustainability, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has published guidelines to help countries develop cost-effective agricultural policies. The policies aim to increase productivity and prevent environmental harm by combining adequate irrigation options, which will accelerate irrigation controllers market revenue growth over the following seven years.

The government is implementing a variety of programs to advance post-harvest and processing technologies, provide better technology, and enhance farming practices. For instance, as per the EPA, a WaterSense-certified weather-based irrigation controller can save water consumption by almost 7,600 gallons per year for the typical home. Therefore, it is anticipated that increasing government initiatives to promote the development of smart irrigation controllers will propel market expansion. Also, residences in Las Vegas, Nevada, showed an average irrigation reduction of 20% when compared to residences with homeowner-based controllers.

Moreover, the growth of advanced agricultural techniques, the expansion of government initiatives to promote water conservation, and the increasing demand for reducing water waste are the main factors that are anticipated to significantly influence market revenue growth throughout the forecast period. Currently, a lot of nations are dealing with the serious problem of water scarcity. The consumption of water is increasing by the people on the planet at a rate that is more than twice as fast. However, the global market is experiencing some revenue growth challenges due to a lack of consumer knowledge regarding agricultural automation.

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a very negative impact on the world economy. A number of nations implemented strict lockdowns to contain the virus, which caused agricultural activity to stop and the supply of agricultural equipment to be disrupted. The agricultural supply chain has been significantly disrupted due to a lack of equipment and many shocks that affect service delivery, such as economic constraints, supply chain interruptions caused by travel restrictions, and labor shortages.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Use of wireless technologies, such as soil moisture and plant canopy sensors, to obtain real-time data on outdoor circumstances using Wi-Fi or cloud-based systems, as well as the use of GPS to track central pivot or continuous move machine movement, is anticipated to raise product demand throughout the forecast period. In April 2022, The most cutting-edge “Precision Irrigation System” was introduced by the Viridix . The company’s “Auto-Pilot system”s comprises of ther “RooTense”, a patented water potential sensor that resembles plant roots & provides real-time data, allowing the system to make and act on autonomous decisions. A fully autonomous solution for optimized precision irrigation is offered by the cutting-edge and user-friendly platform, which also offers unmatched effectiveness.

Further, governments all around the world have been compelled to make large investments due to growing concerns about sustainability and global food security. Increased investments, supportive initiatives, and trade policies from governments of various nations throughout the world have a significant impact on the worldwide industry. As part of their efforts to assist the modernization of smart irrigation technology, nations in the world are also putting comprehensive national strategies into place.

Smart Controllers segment is expected to witness the fastest growth during forecast period

Throughout the forecast period, the smart controller segment is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR. Water waste is decreased because of smart controllers, which also make it possible to invest again in better irrigation technology for long-term sustainability. Additionally, when necessary, it enables the control of the water supply to the plants. To enhance crop quality and reduce water usage, smart irrigation controllers are being used more and more in agricultural applications like open fields and greenhouses. Demand for these systems is also anticipated to rise as a result of growing government initiatives to encourage water conservation.

Weather-based accounted for the largest market share in 2022

Weather-based holds largest market share due to the fact that it is frequently used in nursery work, gardening, urban gardening, and playground irrigation.  The irrigation schedules are modified by weather-based controllers using local weather information as well as evaporation from the soil surface and transpiration from the plant surface. Sensor-based irrigation controllers are buried in the root zone. The controller reads the moisture content level and, as a result, automatically applies water.  

A weather irrigation system—also referred to as a smart controller or an Evapotranspiration (ET) system—supplies water only in small amounts to a few designated areas and automatically adjusts itself in response to the local climate. It is possible to estimate and forecast the precise amount of irrigation required with the help of weather-based irrigation controllers, which collect weather data from satellites and nearby weather stations.

Sprinkler Irrigation sector is expected to hold the significant revenue share in 2022

Over the forecast period, the sprinkler irrigation segment is anticipated to hold significant revenue growth. In order to improve the efficiency of water usage, sprinkler irrigation controllers are expected to make up a significant portion of the market. Large, flat regions that need a lot of water are best suited for sprinkler irrigation controllers. Water is dispersed over greater distances and is used less when sprinkler irrigation controllers are used.

The market for drip irrigation is anticipated to grow at a CAGR over the forecast period because of how well-suited it is for the growing of food crops due to its affordability and water-consumption capacity. The use of drip irrigation systems is also being influenced by the growing need for irrigation systems in lawns and sports fields. However, drip irrigation systems work well for watering tiny areas that need to be watered regularly.

The demand in Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth during forecast period

A growing number of government initiatives to conserve water are expected to cause the Asia Pacific market to account for the largest revenue share in the market during the forecast period. Additionally, governments are supporting the adoption of smart irrigation controllers in various agricultural activities by providing trade policies, subsidies, and advantageous initiatives. The area is continually working to increase agricultural productivity by implementing cutting-edge technological farming techniques. The increase in investments and the number of startups in the region's nations are what are fueling the market's revenue growth.

Furthermore, due to the rising need for fully digital systems that can automatically regulate the water run hours and water schedule to match the landscape needs throughout the region, the North American region is anticipated to experience the fastest growth in the global market. As more technologically advanced farming systems are used, innovative irrigation networks. The market is also anticipated to increase as a result of farmers being more aware of drip irrigation and smart solutions, government organizations investing in providing modern irrigation systems, and rising investments in new companies. Similarly, the growing awareness of smart irrigation controllers and the increasing demand to increase crop productivity in the region are both anticipated to help the market's expansion.
