Farm Equipments and Irrigation Market Research Reports & Consulting
Farm mechanization (equipment) and irrigation are the main components that can meet the growing food demand across the world. Farm labor scarcity, water scarcity, and the need to achieve food security across the world are favored concepts in the irrigation and farm equipment industries.
Dropping groundwater levels due to climate change is a major challenge faced by farmers. Low efficiency of irrigation facilities and weak irrigation management often result in land degradation. The projected climate change is expected to have a negative impact on agricultural irrigation, while concurrently increasing irrigation water demand and withdrawal due to higher temperatures and higher evapo-transpiration.
Irrigation and farm equipment use in agricultural crop production helps in effective utilization of agri-inputs to increase productivity of land and labor. The use of more efficient irrigation methods and improvement of irrigation systems & farm equipment to increase productivity and minimize losses have become the major strategies adopted for sustainable agriculture.
Modern methods of gardening, landscaping, and horticulture invest in irrigation systems and farm equipment due to their higher returns on investment. The global market for irrigation systems and farm equipment is witnessing newer product innovations and patent registrations, signifying the progressive demand for latest technologies, especially in the last couple of decades.
During the last decade, there has been a steady increase in demand for food and fuel in developed countries. Developing countries such as China and India have also experienced a strong upsurge in demand for food, fuel, feed, and fiber. The demand for irrigation systems such as micro irrigation and mechanized irrigation is expected to grow continuously in countries, such as Brazil, which adopted these systems quite earlier, as compared to other regions, despite cost affecting factors such as increased fuel costs, reduced government spending, and general tightening in credit markets.
Farm mechanization to increase the productivity of labor, the growing agro-processing industry to improve the quality of produce, and technology for loss prevention in storage, handling, and transport are demanding technology-driven equipment. Adoption of farm irrigation systems and equipment depends upon local government policies regarding pricing, manufacturing, and financial incentives.
Regional and local government organizations and NGOs are undertaking efforts in making agricultural production exceed national food requirements with the available scarce resources such as land, labor, water, and others. Government actions have helped reduce equipment prices and enabled farmers to purchase more equipment to bring more productivity in farm lands. Adequate access to equipment, design and installation capacity, spares/maintenance support, training, finance, and enabling government policies will help promote increased adoption of irrigation and farm equipment.see less
