As the war of innovation supremacy continues among the stakeholders, automated fertigation control systems are likely to witness relatively high sales as compared to the manual variants. Moreover, manufacturers are incorporating new web-based technology and IoT in their products that provide farmers with recommendations on plant, soil, and weather conditions to personalize irrigation programs. 

FMI study forecasts that the global fertigation control market is set to grow at ~ 8% CAGR during the period, 2019-2029, driven by overarching trends such as organic farming, hydroponics, living walls, and controlled environment agriculture, in addition to world’s rising demand for food to sustain the ever-increasing population.

Manufacturers Foresee Growth Opportunities in Latin America and MEA

“With ~ 46% share in 2018, Asia will continue to maintain its lead in the fertigation control system market, as the agriculture industry in several countries in the region accounts for large percentage of their GDP,” says the study. However, Middle East & Africa is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for the market players, in the view of greater adoption of newer technologies and agricultural equipment to improve their crop production and reduce the dependence on food imports.

While economic conditions and limited access to technological innovations in agriculture sector in Latin America appeared to be insurmountable obstacles, the governments in the region are taking initiatives to invest in advanced agriculture solutions and technologies. The report forecasts the sales of fertigation control systems in MEA will increase ~ 8% y-o-y in 2019, while rising demand from Latin America is likely to result in increased market share.

Market Gains Underpinned by Increasing Greenhouse Projects Worldwide

According to the report, the consumption of fertigation control system in greenhouses continue to account for major share of the manufacturer’s bottom lines.

High-tech innovations in huge climate-controlled environment for crop production and increasing greenhouse projects across the globe, to counteract the challenges in improving food productivity, will complement the rapid adoption of fertigation control systems. In 2018, fertigation control systems worth ~ US$ 247 million were sold for use in open fields (farms), while application in research bodies will increase ~ 6% y-o-y in 2019, according to the FMI’s indications.

Manufacturers are focussed on increasing the production of automated fertigation control systems, considering the increasing need to reduce manpower and time required in agricultural activities in line with a constant challenge boost by the lack of workforce worldwide. Furthermore, dual-channel automated fertigation control systems are likely to witness relatively high sales, owing to economical pricing and specific advantages over single- and multi-channel fertigation control systems.

The automated fertigation control systems accounted for ~70% of the total sales. An embrace of R&D and innovations are forthcoming for ‘solar-powered’ automated fertigation control systems that will work in tandem with growing global efforts to reduce the consumption of limited resources.
