Fertigation & Chemigation Market to Showcase Healthy Growth in the Next Five Years

Fertigation & chemigation are processes that go hand-in-hand, and are practiced at a large scale in agriculture and horticulture. They help in reducing the time and cost of labor that otherwise is spent on applying fertilizers and chemicals to the crops. It is the slow application of water and nutrients on or below the soil with the help of different irrigation systems. It is fast gaining attention since it helps in protecting against drought-like situations and is also cost-effective. This process is most beneficial in places where labor is scarce or expensive and where there is a need for irrigation, keeping in mind the optimum use of water. Moreover, it also improves the yield and quality of food, which another factor responsible for the growth of the overall fertigation & chemigation market, owing to increase in demand for high-quality food. The growing market for fertigation & chemigation is also expected to offer an array of growth opportunities in the near future.

Driving Factors & Restraints for the Market

The growth of the worldwide market for fertigation & chemigation is being primarily influenced by the following factors:

  • Increasing population which has resulted in increased demand for food
  • Increasing water scarcity
  • Rise in crop production and improved crop growth, yield, and quality of crops
  • Proper and efficient utilization of nutrients

Moreover, rising awareness regarding the benefits of fertigation & chemigation among farmers has also triggered the growth of this market. Apart from this, government initiatives for effective use of water resources and increasing encouragement for adopting fertigation & chemigation are likely to further boost the market growth.

Although the market may face some challenges like need for more efficiency, higher costs during initial investments, and critical nutrient application doses, it is fast gaining significance, globally.
