Introduction

Micro irrigation can be defined as the regular application of small quantities of water directly above and below the soil surface. This process is done usually as discrete drops, frequent drops or tiny streams through emitters placed along a water delivery line. Micro irrigation can maximize crop productivity and protect the environment through conserving soil, water and fertilizer resources, while also increasing farmer income. Most of the components in a typical low-cost micro irrigation system are manufactured from polyvinyl chloride and various types of polyethylene and polypropylene. The manufacturing technology is based on a simple extrusion or injection molding process. Consequently, manufacturers of plastic pipes can easily adapt the technology to the needs of the small landholders and enable them to cultivate high-value cash crops with small amounts of water to increase their income. Micro irrigation systems is largely used in orchard crops are vineyards.

Market Dynamics

Need for efficient usage of water resources in drought affected areas has augmented the demand for micro irrigation systems in the recent years. In addition to this, the need for higher yields from limited land is also expected to fuel the growth of global micro irrigation systems market over the forecast period. However, until recently a majority of small holders in developing countries were deprived of this technology due to its high capital cost and non-adaptability to small land holdings. In addition to this, requirement of continuous maintenance is also anticipated to restrain the growth of global micro irrigation systems market over the forecast period.
