The global dripline market size is expected to grow from USD 2.28 billion in 2020 to USD 3.10 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 5.2%.
By type, the global dripline market is divided into PC dripline and non-PC dripline. The non-pressure compensating (non-PC) dripline segment is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period due to its high efficiency, flexibility, and increased demand from farms, vineyards, gardens, and seedling storage areas.
The global dripline market is divided into farms, commercial greenhouses, and residential gardens on an application basis. In 2020, the farms segment is accounted for the largest share of revenue among the applications segments in the global market.
The North American market is expected to account for the largest market share than other regional markets during the forecast period. Increasing demand for food, especially organic food, as well as the rapid development of agricultural technologies and irrigation methods are expected to further boost the North American market growth. In addition, the increasing focus of producers of irrigation products to develop and provide more advanced and innovative products to meet the growing demand of farmers drives the North American market growth. Asia Pacific market revenue is expected to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, as major players use different strategies to increase revenue opportunities. Increased acceptance of draft strategies and increased government support in the irrigation sector drive the growth of the Asia Pacific market.
Some major companies in the global dripline market are NaanDanJain Irrigation, Toro, Rain Bird, Dayu Water Group Co., Ltd., Rivulis Irrigation, and Netafim.
Increased demand and popularity of cost-effective irrigation solutions for efficient water distribution of crops on farms, commercial seedlings, gardens, etc. is expected to further the growth of market revenue in the forecast period. Technological advances in small-scale irrigation strategies and the growing number of manufacturers of irrigation products worldwide are some of the factors that drive market growth.
Dripline or drip irrigation is a method in which water is allowed to drip slowly and evenly on the roots of plants or the ground. This is done with pumps, ball valves, pipes, tubes, filters, emitters, etc. Dripline is a low-pressure irrigation system where water flows through small tubes gradually to the plant base. Dripline uses thin tape or solid, reconstituted tape made using polyethylene. Increased adoption of water-saving measures to save water and fertilizer is leading to increasing demand for dripline solutions worldwide. This micro-irrigation method helps to reduce evaporation and less chance of soil erosion. Advances in irrigation technology and increased awareness of the benefits of using cost-effective and flexible strategies suitable for all soil types are expected to further market growth. Increased demand for dripline irrigation in the desert regions of North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific is expected to support market growth on a large scale. Leading market players are focused on providing highly advanced irrigation solutions by increasing the production of dripline components such as drip buttons, valves, etc. Proper planning and management are required to make full use of these systems. With increasing awareness of the benefits of dripline irrigation over surface irrigation schemes and spraying systems, many agronomists and farmers are investing heavily in dripline methods to produce higher crop yields. Ongoing research and development in the field of micro-irrigation to improve improved products contribute to the growth of global markets.
High initial investment and resource losses due to improper installation are some of the factors that could affect the growth of the global dripline market. Clogging is a major problem with drip emitters. In addition, the dripline tubes used in this method can be damaged due to exposure to the sun, which in turn affects demand and shipping.
