Soil Moisture Monitoring System Market Size (2022-2027)

The Global Soil Moisture Monitoring System Market was worth US$ 418 million in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 865 million by the end of 2027, expanding at an annual growth rate of 12.9% between 2022 and 2027.

A soil monitoring system is a system that is used to measure or monitor volumetric water content in soil. By combing effective irrigation management strategies with more efficient irrigation systems and soil monitoring systems helps producers to use water more efficiently and reduce energy used in irrigation. Excessive irrigation not only increases the cost of production from additional pumping and electricity used but also causes excessive fertilizer to runoff and leaching, without an economic increase in production. And on the other hand, providing insufficient water for the crops limits transpiration photosynthesis and, in turn, hinders crop growth and reduces yields and crop quality.

The soil monitoring system includes hardware and software for measuring water content presence in soil. The various types of soil moisture monitoring system present in market include Sensing & Imagery, Ground-based Sensing, Robotics and Telematics. The soil monitoring system is used in both agricultural and non-agricultural applications. In Agricultural soil moisture monitoring system plays a vital role in optimal quality crop production and also helps in reducing the extra cost like water bill for irrigation, labor cost, urea ad other fertilizer cost etc. Due to increasing technological advancements, government of several countries around the globe are investing on digitization of agricultural

Moreover, governments are providing subsidiary to farmers to adopt different systems to maximize quality crop. Thus the technological advancement and governmental support drives the growth global soil moisture monitoring system in period between 2022 and 2027.

Market Drivers

The driving force of the Soil Moisture Monitoring System Market is surging need of advanced technique for measuring soil moisture in order to get good crops. In countries like U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, Israel, Denmark, and Australia, the progressive farmers has shown their interest in soil monitoring for improving the soil quality and better crop yielding. Thus farmers in several countries are adopting soil monitoring system for maintain soil quality and getting maximum yields. The soil moisture monitoring system prevents over irrigation of fields by measuring soil moisture content. If the soil gets over watered, the nutrients present in the soil get washes off that affect the quality of the crop. Due to increasing crop quality and production, the demand of soil monitoring system is increasing which fuels the growth of the market.

The rising focus of key players on developing advanced soil moisture monitoring system in order to monitor the soil moisture for agricultural and non- agricultural requirements. The increasing awareness and adoption of automated soil monitoring systems helps in getting good quality and maximum yields and also reduce labor cost and minimize the damage to soil quality. These automated soil monitoring systems proved as a blessing at these COVID situation. Owing to these factors the demand of automated soil monitoring devices will increase which drives the growth of market in projected period. Additionally, government is providing support for digitizing agriculture increases the demand of digital devices for soil moisture monitoring drives the growth of the market.

The rising government and company’s effort to promote sustainable agricultural practices propels the growth of the market. Furthermore, the surging call to preserve soil quality, stringent government regulations pertaining ecological stability and growing need for improving farm productivity to feed rising population are some of the key factors that propels the growth of the global soil moisture monitoring system market.

Market Restraints

The soil spatial variability is key factor hindering the development of soil monitoring market due to the spatial variability of soil; it is not viable to monitor every single parameter to represent wide areas primarily include grounds and farms.

Recent Developments
