Key Market Trends

Increasing Awareness of Micro irrigation

Agricultural sector is the predominant consumer of water. Water scarcity is a major challenge and a key driver for the use of micro-irrigation machinery systems. Micro irrigation systems such as drip and sprinklers assist in reducing water wastage and increase the productivity. There has been an increasing awareness about the benefits achieved by adopting micro irrigation systems among the farmers. Hence, the shift from gravity irrigation systems to pressure-sprinkler irrigation systems has been observed particularly in western states of the country. At present approximately, 46 million acres of land is been irrigated using micro irrigation systems in U.S. Moreover, increasing technological advancements in micro irrigation systems are offering ubiquitous ease to large farmers in the agricultural sector to control and monitor the water flow and intake of plants, which favors the market growth

California Dominates the United States Market in Terms of Irrigation System

Irrigation predominantly occurs in the Western parts of the United States. The western states accounted for 81% of the total irrigation withdrawals and had 74% of the total irrigated lands in United States. California ranks first among highly irrigated acres of land constituting nearly 7.9 million acres. About 82% of the cropland is irrigated and the most irrigated acres by crop are corn, forage (hay, silage, etc.) and orchards. The primary irrigation method is gravity, accounting 51%, followed by 31% micro-irrigation and the remaining 18% by sprinkler irrigation. Therefore, there will be an increasing demand for Agricultural Irrigation Machinery Market, particularly in Western region of United States.
