Agriculture dripper is a device that converts a pressure water stream in a tube into droplets or a stream. Drip irrigation is a process of irrigation that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of several different plants through a network of valves, tubing, pipes, and drippers. It is majorly preferred by the farmers across the country over surface irrigation, owing wastage of water through evaporation.
According to study, “Global Agriculture Dripper Market 2019 by Manufacturers, Regions, Type and Application, Forecast to 2024” the key companies operating in the global agriculture dripper market are Netafim Ltd., Rain Bird Corp., Jain Irrigation Systems Ltd., The TORO Company, Rivulis Irrigation, Qinchuan Water-saving, EPC Industries Ltd., Nelson Irrigation Corp., T-L Irrigation, Valmont Industries Inc., Metzer, Lindsay Corp., Irritec, Hunter Industries, Shanghai Lianye, Chinadrip. Key manufacturers are focusing on developing agriculture dripper or drip irrigation systems with better features to ensure additional benefits to the end-users such as farmers (agriculture sector), golf clubs, and others.
Based on component type, agriculture dripper market is segmented into pressure pumps, emitter/drippers, valves, drip tubes or drip lines, fitting & accessories, and filters. Based on crop type, market is segmented into cereals & pulses, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, turf & ornamentals and other crops. Based on emitter type, market is segmented into online emitters and inline emitters. Inline emitters may be cylindrical, flat boat-shaped, or may be attached to the inner wall of the lateral. These emitters are generally used for row crops or field crops for instance onion, chili, potato, sugarcane, turmeric, vegetables, and cotton. In addition, based on application, market is segmented into indoor drip irrigation, field drip irrigation, and orchard drip irrigation.
The agriculture dripper market is driven by growth in efficiency in the use of water in drought-prone areas, followed by rise in government programs & subsidies, increase in crop yields and rise in cost efficiency in agricultural production. However, high cost of system maintenance and high initial cost of large-scale drip irrigation systems may impact the market. Moreover, growth in advancements in technological capabilities of drip irrigation systems and rise in adoption of precision agriculture & sustainable practices are key opportunities for market. Furthermore, rise in adoption of greenhouse agriculture is a key trend for market.
Based on geography, the Asian-Pacific region dominates the agriculture dripper market owing to growth in population, limited land resources, increase in withdrawal of water for agriculture, unpredictable rainfall patterns and strong potential for precision irrigation systems through the technical upgrade of current systems & components in the region. The European and North
American regions are estimated to witness high growth rate due to rise in government initiatives, growth in enhancement of production, increase in water conservation activities, and decrease in production cost over the forecast period. In upcoming years, it is projected that market will be reached at rapid pace because of rise in demand for biofuel in developing countries during the forecast period.The worldwide market is probable to grow at a CAGR of approximately 18.3% over the next five years, will reach US $680 million in 2024, from US $290 million in 2019.
