Irrigation Controllers Market 2018-2023 | Extensive Analysis On Worldwide Industry and New Market Opportunities

Irrigation controllers, especially smart controllers, are an advanced way of water management in the irrigation process. Traditional irrigation systems, such as surface irrigation, are prevalent and highly preferred due to their low investment costs. However, in this method, there are high chances of huge quantity of water wastage and low qualitative and quantitative crop production compared to advanced irrigation system. This factor forces growers to switch from traditional irrigation methods to advanced irrigation techniques such as irrigation controllers. Irrigation controllers monitor weather conditions, soil structure, evaporation status, water intake, and water usage & requirement. Smart irrigation controllers consist of sensors that have the capability to adjust the sprinkler time based on requirement and weather condition. Thus, irrigation controllers help to provide efficient flow of irrigational water, thereby declining water wastages and minimize the problem of water scarcity.

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the global irrigation controller market is expected to grow at a CAGR 16.0% from 2018 to reach USD 1,458.1 million by 2023. This market is driven by factors such as “growing adoption of modern agriculture techniques, increasing demand for lawn and garden equipment, growing automation and use of IT in agriculture, and increasing government initiatives to promote water conservation.”
