Rising Awareness for Water Conservation to Spur Demand for Micro Irrigation Systems

Owing to rapid urbanization, the demand for water resources has increased manifold across the globe. This increasing demand is resulting in rapid decline of water reserves and other water sources globally. Furthermore, inferior irrigation practices are contributing to factors such as alkalization and salinization that result in hindering plants growth. Thereby, to improve soil fertility and crop productivity the growers are turning towards drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation techniques that requires limited supply of water. This factor is anticipated to boost the demand for the market during the forecast period.
