Theglobal micro irrigation systemmarketisone ofthefastestgrowingsegmentsofglobal agriculture industry. This growth is fueled byGovernmentencouragement for adoption of micro irrigation system as regularpracticeforfuturesafetyduetowaterscarcity,inordertoconservenaturalwaterresources. This growth is particularly higherin geography such as Africa and Asia-Pacific due to increased water scarcityandfarmersawarenessregarding improvementinyield qualityandquantityusing micro irrigation.

Crop protection expense is thesecond highest expense after fertilizer in farming expenses, boththe major expenses can be reduced with fertigation and chemigation. Hence in areas other than water scarce area, fertigation and chemigation have proven to be the winning imperatives for the global micro irrigation system market. Hence micro irrigation systems are the most cost effective way of protecting crops from both bioticandabioticstresses.

Sprinklermicroirrigation  systems,  which  includes  micro  sprinkler  irrigation  and  micro  jet  irrigation systems are the biggest market segmentsason2010,owingtotheirwide-spreaduseinsprinkler irrigation. Sprinkler micro irrigation systems currently controls over 72%of the global micro irrigation system market.

Drip micro irrigation systems are a smallermarketsegment,butexpected togrowatafasterpacethan any other segment, due to Government encouragement for optimum water usage to secure future water demands especially inwaterscarcegeography.

The North American micro irrigation system market is expected to hold around 24% of the global market share by 2016, at an estimated CAGRof 15.7%. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing segment due to the constantpush byGovernment bodies foradoption ofmicroirrigation systems.Themarket share of Asia- Pacific is expected toboost from $344.5 million in 2010 to $1,062.5 million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 21.5% from 2011 to 2016.
