Fertigation and Chemigation Market dynamics:

The global market is gaining traction due to the increased popularity of fertigation and chemigation products, which may be linked to the ever-increasing global population and, as a result, the ongoing pursuit of high crop yield amid widespread water scarcity. The technology requires less labour and relies on drip and sprinkler watering to improve crop quality. The benefits of fertigation and chemigation procedures, such as high nutrient usage efficiency, minimum nutrient leaching losses, and improved crop growth, yield, and quality, are driving the market.

 

The growing demand for high quality food products is fuelling the growth of the fertigation and chemigation market. The market’s growth will be accelerated by rapid urbanisation and efficient nutrient use.

 

Furthermore, improved plant growth, production and crop quality will boost the fertigation and chemigation market’s growth rate. Another important factor is the increasing scarcity of water, which will help to cushion the market’s development rate.

 

Other factors such as rising population and increased demand for higher quality crops, would boost the fertigation and chemigation market’s growth rate. The fertigation and chemigation market will benefit from robust expansion in new and emerging markets, which would provide attractive and remunerative growth prospects.

 

During the forecast period, the drip irrigation segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate. In most cases, subsurface drip irrigation systems are utilized to supplement feed maize production in developing countries. This saves a lot of money and increases revenue in the micro irrigation systems market all over the world. In China, drip fertigation is widely utilised in the production of vegetables and fruits, but there is no efficient, practical, or cost-effective drip fertigation technology for maize cultivation. Fertigation in maize, on the other hand, has been shown to boost maize yield, water and nutrient usage efficiency, as well as provide economic benefits. The demand for these fertigation products is expected to rise in the coming year, synchronously with the adoption of irrigation practises in sandy soil.

 

The expensive initial investments are a big stumbling block to the fertigation and chemigation market's expansion. Orchards, nurseries, greenhouses, and vineyards are regarded to be the best candidates for fertiliser and water-soluble fertiliser systems. Installing fertigation systems for water-soluble fertiliser application has a high initial investment cost, making it less suited for low-value crops with low returns on investments. In addition to fertiliser dose, nutrient application is one of the major elements among other agronomic techniques that influence crop development and yield. Overdosage can result in yield losses, thus nutrient delivery in fertigation is crucial.

 

COVID-19 Impact on Fertigation and Chemigation Market:

Fertigation and chemigation is utilised in the production of vegetables, fruits, wine, and crops, which necessitates significant crop care such as seed preparation, soil management, crop protection, and more. However, as a result of the pandemic, production in these sectors is suffering such as delayed crop care and pesticide product deliveries, trade and delivery issues, and more. The world has been put on lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, with restaurants and grocery stores closing and demand for fresh produce and fisheries products falling, impacting growers and suppliers.

 

Agricultural agencies such as the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) have set instructions for farmers to follow throughout the lockdown time, including harvesting and threshing of various crops, as well as storage and marketing of farm produce. All of these problems are limiting the fertigation and chemigation market.

Fertigation And Chemigation Market Segment Analysis:

By input type: Fertigation and Chemigation Market is segmented into fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and others on the basis of input type. Due to the rising use of fertilisers as agri inputs in fertigation and chemical processes, fertiliser held the highest share in the fertigation & chemigation market in 2023. Often a small amount of fertilizer is spread through drip tubes directly to the root zone using the fertigation process as fertigation improves the fertilizer efficiency.  Even with 20 percent to 50 percent less fertiliser, fertigation and chemigation produces superior yields and crop quality. Additionally, by adopting the fertigation & chemigation procedure, fertiliser leaching is reduced, resulting in less groundwater pollution and environmental concerns. Furthermore, if water homogeneity is good, fertiliser application efficiency will be high as well.

 

Fertigation and Chemigation Market

 

By crop type: Fertigation and Chemigation Market is segmented into food crops, cash crops, horticulture crops, plantation crops, turf & ornamental, and others on the basis of crop type.

 

Due to rising demand for food crops such as wheat, rice, lentils, and others, the food crop held the major proportion in the fertigation & chemigation market in 2023. Food crops are in high demand since they represent a staple food in many locations, particularly in Asian countries, and they are economically and culturally significant. Over the last few decades, the global use of rice for livestock feed has significantly expanded. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the global usage of rice is expanding at a pace of 0.5 million mt each year, or 1.7 percent per year.

 

According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), rice consumption in 2023 was over 102 million tonnes as the government pushes for more subsidised rice. As a result, as food crop consumption rises, so will demand for fertigation and chemigation, which is expected to boost the fertigation and chemigation market in the food crop sector throughout the forecast period.

 

By application: Fertigation and Chemigation Market is segmented into agriculture irrigation, landscape irrigation, horticulture irrigation, greenhouse irrigation, and others on the basis of application.

 

Due to the increased use of the fertigation & chemigation process in the agriculture irrigation application, agriculture irrigation held the highest share in the fertigation & chemigation market in 2023 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.5 percent during the forecast period. Fertigation is the injection of fertilisers into an irrigation system for soil amendments, water amendments, and other water-soluble compounds. The employment of fertigation and chemigation as a method of agriculture irrigation produces favourable outcomes in terms of nutrient and water distribution to crops, allowing for optimal nutrient and water absorption.

 

During the predicted period, the greenhouse irrigation sector will also increase at a considerable CAGR. Fertigation and chemigation are widely used in greenhouse irrigation for a variety of reasons, including improving the efficiency with which plants absorb many chemicals, lowering chemical use, improving chemical application uniformity, increasing fertiliser availability, lowering risk to pollinators and other beneficial organisms, and more. Thus, during the forecast period, the numerous benefits of adopting fertigation and chemigation are expected to raise demand for fertigation and chemigation in the greenhouse irrigation sector.

 

By irrigation type: Fertigation and Chemigation Market is segmented into drip irrigation, sprinkler irrigation, and others on the basis of irrigation type.

 

In 2023, drip irrigation accounted for the highest share of the fertigation & chemigation market, owing to its superior features over sprinkler irrigation. For a variety of reasons, drip irrigation is preferable to alternative irrigation methods. Water conservation (drip irrigation uses about half as much water throughout the growth season as sprinkler irrigation) and the potential for much better fertiliser control are two big advantages. Drip irrigation is a useful technique because it allows water to drip gently to the roots of the plants through a network of pipes, emitters, and valves. As a result, fertiliser and nutrient losses are minimised and crop moisture content can be maintained.
