Smart irrigation systems are advanced irrigation systems that
tailor watering schedules to meet specific landscape requirements. By offering
a variety of advantages, smart irrigation systems are being highly adopted in
several parts of the world. The main working of smart irrigation systems is to
improve the efficiency of water usage among the depleting levels of water. Although
several firms and whole industries have collapsed in the wake of coronavirus,
the agriculture industry is holding firm. The traditional agriculture is
actually turning to agtech faster than ever before to adapt to resource issues.
Even though the supply chain has been facing disruptions, the ongoing domestic
demand for food will remain and food and agribusiness sectors are increasing
their capabilities to respond to the crisis. Moreover, Agritech startups will
also be further strengthened as several countries seek to increase domestic
production and limit imports. All these aforementioned factors will have a positive impact on the smart irrigation market over the forecast years.
Further, the key factors such as increasing concern about water
along with expanding the need for minimizing excess water use in the
agriculture sector are contributing to the growth of the global smart
irrigation market during the forecast period. Besides this, increasing the
adoption rate of smart irrigation systems and solutions in schoolyards,
government parks, and community botanical gardens is also boosting the market
growth. Additionally, IoT based smart irrigation System helps the farmer to
avoid the wastage of water resources is another factor boosting the growth of
the smart irrigation market in the coming year. However, high installment cost
is expected to hamper the growth of this market in the forecast period. Going
further, new product launches by the smart irrigation players in terms of
controllers, sensors, and water flow meters creates growth opportunities for
