According to the 2017 Census of Agriculture from US Geological Survey, farms with some form of irrigation accounted for more than 54% of the total value of U.S. crop sales, while irrigated land accounted for less than 20% of harvested cropland. Irrigated crop production helps to support local rural economies in many areas of the U.S., and contributes to the Nation’s livestock, food processing, transportation, and energy sectors. The total land area for agriculture has decreased from 945080 acres in 2000 to 896600 acres in the United States in 2020. California, Nebraska and Texas account for highest irrigated lands in US. Further, the increasing government subsidies on drip irrigation are expected to drive the market growth in future years. According to the market research report “North America Micro Irrigation System Market Outlook, 2027”, published by Actual Market Research, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.93% during the forecast period. United States has the largest market share and Mexico is the fastest growing country in North America. Drip irrigation is anticipated to be growing fastest in future years. However, sprinkler irrigation is also used but owing to high price, the drip irrigation market value has higher share. It is most widely used to grow crops like plantation crops like tea, rubber, coffee, coconut, arecanut, among others. Drip irrigation is boosting the grapes production in California and thus, orchards & vineyards have the fastest application rate in foreseen future. Water scarcity proving to be a major challenge in today’s increasing population proportion is the key driver for adoption of micro irrigation systems. Water scarcity can lead to low quality food production both in terms of quality and quantity. The decreasing land needs controlled water for efficient use. The increasing demand for raw materials is pushing the crop cultivation and as a result of which farmers are turning to landscape irrigation, farming contracts and commercial farming. This increasing adoption of micro irrigation systems has led to a rise in the global revenues. The growing sophistication and government subsidy is another factor driving the growth of micro irrigation system market in North America. Micro sprinkler systems are widely used in USA as they are most water efficient irrigation system. It is a low pressure and low to medium volume system suitable for plantation crops such as tree fruits. The water is distributed uniformly over the crops with little wastage. It is most suitable for sloping fields or uneven orchard fields that are not suitable for flooding or furrow irrigation. Plantation crops are unnatural crops like cotton, coffee, sugarcane, tobacco and rubber and tea plantations. These are grown generally to cater to international markets for commercial purposes. The pandemic had a global impact on the micro irrigation systems market with less labour mobility, raw materials transport, micro irrigation equipment’s scarcity and monetary deficit. Though agriculture was exempt from restrictions, the factors on which it was dependant proved to be a major challenge for farmers. The irrigation equipment manufacturing companies struggled for raw materials and inputs and maintenance. In addition to this they faced fiscal stress due to lower revenues and additional costs from state transfers and tariffs.
