The problem of water scarcity is rampant globally, creating the urgent need
for water conservation. The use of micro irrigation systems is expected to
result in increased crop yields in terms of volume and quality. The other
important benefits of using micro irrigation systems include expansion in the
area under irrigation, water conservation, optimum use of fertilizers and
chemicals through water, and decreased labor costs among others.

The worldwide population is increasing at a rapid rate and it is imperative
that food supply keeps pace with this increasing population. Agriculture
industry is adversely affected by a significant decrease in the ground water
levels; hence, there is a need to locate efficient ways of supplying water to
meet agricultural needs and conserve water for future use. Micro irrigation
systems are the best option to achieve this purpose. It can be broadly
categorized as sprinkler irrigation and drip irrigation; center pivot
irrigation, and lateral move irrigation are the other types of sprinkler
irrigation that are currently gaining popularity. Drip irrigation is the most
efficient method of irrigation, with efficiencies ranging between 90%-95%. 

The global micro irrigation systems market is one of the fastest growing
segments of agriculture industry. The growth of this market is fueled by the
government initiatives for adoption of micro irrigation systems in order to
conserve water for future use. The growth of micro irrigation systems is
particularly higher in Asia Pacific and Africa due to the increased problems
of water scarcity, and farmer awareness towards increasing the crop yield with
the help of micro irrigation systems. Out of the total 69 million hectares of
cultivated area in India, only 5 million hectares is under drip and sprinkler
irrigation. This represents strong potential for the growth of micro
irrigation systems in this region. 

Crop protection expense is the second highest expense after fertilizers in
overall farming expenses. These expenses can be considerably reduced with the
techniques called fertigation and chemigation that are incorporated with micro
irrigation systems. In areas other than scarce water problems, these methods
have proved to be winning imperatives for the expansion of micro irrigation
systems and are the most efficient and effective way of protecting the crop
from biotic and abiotic factors.

Currently, sprinkler irrigation system is the largest segment of the micro
irrigation systems market. Sprinkler irrigation system is quite cost effective
compared to the drip irrigation system, hence, mostly preferred by small
farmers. The major components of sprinkler system include tubing/pipes,
pumping unit, fitting/sprinkler head, and coupler.  Of all these components,
pumping unit is the most costly component; however, it can be used for other
applications also. Within the core sprinkler irrigation components, lateral
pipes add to the overall cost of sprinkler systems. The components of drip
irrigation are tubing, backflow preventers, valves, filters, and pressure
regulators. Per unit price of backflow preventers is the highest among all the
components used in drip irrigation; however, within the complete system,
tubing adds to the overall cost. Similarly, major components of center-pivot
irrigation system include water emitters, pipelines, central towers, and
system control panels. Among these components, the per unit price of central
tower and system control panels is comparatively high; however, depending on
the area to be irrigated, the total cost of pipelines may exceed the cost of
tower and panels.

The report on the global micro irrigation systems analyzes this market based
on the major micro irrigation types, crop types, application areas, and major
geographies that include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the
World. The report provides complete analysis of the factors responsible for
driving and restraining the global micro irrigation systems market. 

Israel based Netafim is leading the global micro irrigation systems market
followed by an Indian company called Jain Irrigation. Both these players, in
combination, accounted for more than 50% market share in 2012. Other important
players in the micro irrigation systems market include John Deere & Company,
EPC Industries, Valmont Industries, and Rain Bird among others.
