The drip irrigation market size is estimated to be valued at USD 5.2 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period in terms of value. Drip irrigation is increasing in popularity among growers, as it helps in transferring water to the roots of the plant where it is needed, at the correct volume, and without a lot of waste due to wind, runoff, overspray, and evaporation. Drip systems use between 20%-50% less water than traditional sprinkler systems. In addition to distributing water, drip irrigation systems can also distribute fertilizer, allowing the nutrients to be delivered to plants with minimal labor expense and workforce chemical exposure.

Vegetable crops grown using drip irrigation require regular water distribution to avoid plant stress during critical growth periods, which could affect both crop productivity and crop production quality. The use of drip irrigation helps maintain a uniform moisture level near the active root zone of the vegetable plant. Moreover, vegetable crops such as potatoes, cabbages, and onions form a key aspect of the Asia Pacific demand as well as exports; however, the increasing government and political scrutiny to reduce water withdrawal rates and advancements in drip lines have led to growers adopting drip irrigation systems in the region. An increase in the area under precision agriculture is also one of the major factors, which has contributed to the increased market demand for drip irrigation systems.
