COVID-19 Impact on the Global Smart Irrigation Market
Just like most industries, the smart irrigation industry was too hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Many manufacturers and technology developers faced various problems, from obtaining raw materials and components required to develop smart irrigation systems and delivering end products to attracting workers from quarantines. Major farmers and farming organizations postponed installations of smart irrigation systems.
Due to the pandemic-driven lockdown mandates, product prices were spiked, and the market demand was lowered. On the other hand, there was a spiked interest and investments in the agriculture sectors worldwide. Also, as lockdown limitations were relaxed, the smart irrigation market is regaining momentum. The market is further expected to witness vast demand due to phenomenally increased automation in farming in the next few years.
The smart irrigation market is likely to witness several strategic initiatives such as collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, expansions, and product & technology launches. Key market players invest in research and development activities and foster their expansion plans.
For instance, on Dec.02, 2021, Netafim India, a leading smart irrigation solution provider, introduced Flexi Sprinkler Kit, a ground-breaking field crops sprinkler irrigation system. The company aims to cover 15,000 hectares of land and reach 15,000 farmers across India by 2022 through its dealer network. Netafim also intends to reach an additional 20% of the farmer community, covering approximately 4000 hectares of the land.
This ground-breaking innovation is suitable for vegetables and open field crops, including Bajra, Wheat, Jowar, Groundnut, Soybean, and many more and small & large farmers looking for uniform water distribution and long-lasting performance depending on their landholding capacity.
