In addition, several environmental factors including dwindling water resources, threatened habitats, climate change, and limited availability of natural resources like arable land and freshwater has paved the way for soil monitoring market growth significantly over the coming years.

For instance, in August 2022, CropX Technologies, announced the launch of its new capability for the farm management system, that continuously track the movement of slats and nitrogen in the soil. The newly developed solution is a less time-consuming and easier method to monitor nitrogen leaching events and further reduces the environmental impact on nitrogen leaching.

Furthermore, in the recent years, the soil monitoring systems has gained high traction worldwide, as it enables farmers to make accurate decisions, to plan their agriculture related activities. Low-cost monitoring and senor devices such as tensiometers, gypsum blocks, and probes are being widely adopted across numerous applications due to its simple, flexible, & inexpensive nature that facilitates the monitoring of soil condition.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the soil monitoring market. Unavailability and shortage or raw materials and components, required in the production process and declined consumer purchasing capacity has also hindered the market growth during the pandemic.

Services is expected to witness fastest growth during the forecast period

The segment’s growth is mainly driven by rising utilization of variety of Internet of Things enabled devices for both agricultural and non-agricultural purposes and extensive growth in the number of connected agriculture devices worldwide. Growing proliferation towards the implementation of innovated technologies like artificial intelligence and IoTs to increase the crop and soil quality, control the pest’s growth, and enhancing efficiency of the agriculture related practices are further likely to positively impact the market in the coming years.

The hardware segment held the largest market share in terms of revenue in 2022, and is likely to grow substantially in the coming years, on account of high penetration for soil sensors, soil scanners, weather stations, and many others among the farmers. With the adoption of these devices, progressive farmers have benefited significantly in several ways including their crop productivity and efficient management, which has increased the demand and fueling the segment growth.

Wireless segment is expected to hold significant market share

The wireless segment is projected to witness highest growth and hold a significant market share in 2022, owing to its increased usage to measure volumetric water content available in the soil with the remote access. In addition, extensive rise in the R&D investment and development of more advanced and innovated devices to simplify the monitoring process along with the growing number of business expansion activities undertaken by key companies through partnerships, acquisition, and mergers are projected to boost the growth of the segment market exponentially.

For instance, in April 2022, Aliaxis announced a strategic investment agreement and partnership with CropX Technologies. With this partnership, CropX and Aliaxis will collaborate together in the data-driven irrigation field.

However, the wired segment dominated the market in 2022. The growth of the segment market can be mainly attributed to the easy availability, high awareness, and considered ideal for variety of experiments in courses including horticulture, agricultural science, biology, botany, and environmental science.

Agricultural segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

Numerous agricultural applications including open fields and greenhouses are being increasingly adopting advanced soil monitoring devices for the enhancement of crop quality and minimize the excess usage of water. A rise in the number of government favorable initiatives regarding water conservation and supporting the sustainable agriculture practices in the agriculture industry have resulted in higher adoption and influencing the market growth.

Furthermore, the non-agriculture is anticipated to grow at considerable growth rate during the forecast period, which is mainly accelerated by growing non-agricultural applications including golf courses, sports ground, turf & landscapes, forestry, and residential, who are increasingly adopting effective and efficient irrigation solutions.

North America region dominated the global market in 2022

The North America region led the industry and accounted for a substantial market share in 2022, and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth of the regional market is mainly driven by growing awareness regarding the availability innovated monitoring systems and high adoption of the sensing and imagery systems for the agricultural productivity in countries like US and Canada coupled with the presence of leading market players in the region. The increasing proliferation of precision farming and mechanized farm practices in the region is further contributing to the market growth and development of the agriculture sector.

Moreover, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated is grow fastest at a growth rate during the study period, on account of the rising government support towards water conservation through providing subsidies, trade policies, and favorable initiatives along with the increasing agricultural productivity by implementing on several technologically advanced agricultural practices.
