Global Irrigation Controllers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Irrigation controllers are devices used to automatically regulate the watering of plants by switching irrigation systems on and off at preset times. They are often used in conjunction with weather-based controllers, which take into account factors such as temperature, humidity, and rainfall to adjust irrigation schedules. Irrigation controllers can save water by shutting down systems when it is not needed or rain is forecasted.

Smart Controllers:

Smart controllers are a group of control systems that can be used to regulate and automate the functioning of water, energy, and other resources in agricultural fields. They assist farmers in making better irrigation decisions based on real-time data regarding soil moisture levels, temperature factors, etc. The system also helps farmers monitor crops more efficiently by providing real-time insights into plant health which eventually increases yield production.

Tap Timers:

The tap timers are electronic devices that open and close the water supply to the irrigation controllers. It is a mechanical system that opens and closes a valve at pre-determined intervals. The main function of tap timers is to ensure an even distribution of water over an appropriate period, ensuring there's no runoff or wasted water.

It helps in maintaining optimum soil moisture levels which directly affect plant growth as well as crop yield.

Application Insights:

Based on the application, the market is segmented into farms, orchard, greenhouse and gardens, sports grounds and turflandscapes, and golf courses. The farms segment dominated the global irrigation controllers market in 2017 owing to increasing demand for technologically advanced equipment from large-scale agricultural operations. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period as farmers across various regions are increasingly adopting smart irrigation controllers to save water while maintaining crops.

The orchard application segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due largelyto increased production of fruit-bearing trees including citrus fruits and pomegranates across countries such as India., China., Indonesia., Vietnam., Malaysia., Thailand.; this has resulted in high product demand for controlling sprinklers during summertime watering schedules at orchards.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest regional market over the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of modern irrigation techniques coupled with rising awareness regarding crop water management. The region accounted for more than 35% of global irrigators in 2017 and is estimated to reach nearly 50% by 2030. Moreover, Asia Pacific has one of the highest per capita income levels which enables people to spend on luxury goods including gardening activities. This factor will further boost product demand in this region during the forecast period.

Europe also held a significant share in terms of both volume and revenue, attributed by growing interest towards landscape irrigation systems as an alternative or supplementing traditional sprinkler systems used for lawns and crops. Furthermore, Europe has been witnessing increased adoption rate for drip irrigation owing to its benefits such as reduced evaporation rates compared with furrowed systems thus leading it into being one of the most popular types across all regions globally since 2005 (Ref: IWMI).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for food due to population growth
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of irrigation controllers
  • Technological advancements in irrigation controllers
  • Government initiatives to promote the use of irrigation controllers
  • Growing demand from agriculture and horticulture sectors
