Convenience of remote access and innovation in technology
Remote access convenience is one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global smart sprinkler irrigation systems market. All smart sprinkler irrigation systems can be connected to Wi-Fi and accessed from remote locations through smartphones or laptops. The smart sprinkler irrigation systems dispense the right amount of water per the time of the year, climate, and weather of a location. Users can also start, stop, and change the sprinklers from their cell phones or computers. They can also check the detailed report on water usage.
"The smart sprinkler irrigation systems allow users to customize each zone and schedule water sprinkling based on the soil and plant type, sun exposure, and nozzles. These irrigation systems operate after taking an automatic reading of the past, present, and future weather. These devices can be integrated with Amazon Alexa, The Google Assistant, Nest, Wink, IFTTT, Control4, Nexia, and others," says Sharan Jagannath, a lead analyst at Technavio foragricultural equipment research.
Rising water scarcity
The changes in demographics due to industrialization and rapid urbanization have resulted in unmaintainable economic practices along with the degradation of natural resources, water scarcity being one of the key issues. For example, the Aral Sea shrinkage was a massive environmental devastation due to the construction of irrigation projects. Over the past three years, the US has been facing an unprecedented drought, especially in California. The demand for water is likely to increase by more than 40% by 2050. By 2025, the two-thirds of the population of the world will live in regions where the supply of potable water will be inadequate, and an estimated 1.8 billion people will face water crisis. In most parts of the world, the lack of efficient irrigation methods leads to water wastage. Thus, installation of smart sprinkler irrigation systems can prove useful for residential and commercial purposes, which will conserve water, save time, and be cost-effective.
"Systems with adjustable time panels can be rescheduled to operate during early mornings instead of midday to avoid water loss due to evaporation. A rain shutoff device ensures the equipment remains turned off during or immediately after rainfall. Market vendors are focusing on tapping the hidden potential of smart sprinkler irrigation systems to ensure optimum water usage," says Sharan.
Increasing awareness of efficient water usage
The misuse and excessive use of water is a global problem because people fail to understand that it is a non-renewable resource. Increased social responsibility and awareness are crucial for the long-term viability of water conservation. Public education and awareness programs on water conservation are paramount to obtain effective results in minimizing water usage during a period of crisis. The goal of these programs is to educate the public on the benefits of water conservation, liabilities of not conserving water, and measures to be taken to conserve water.
Organizations in some countries such as the Irrigation Association in the US, and The Water Authority of Western Australia have identified the importance of educating and training people on water-efficient irrigation. The programs focus on conducting water audits and evaluating irrigation systems. The message was communicated to the masses through television, radio, newspaper, and public speaking events.
