Digital Soil Monitoring Market Insights
Increasing government efforts to encourage sustainable farming practices, preserve soil quality, and thereby improving farmland efficiency has promoted the Digital Soil Monitoring Market growth. The rising population has put pressure on the agriculture industry to increase productivity which may, in turn, instigate the advanced technologies adoption for optimum farm utilization.
Change in weather patterns along with modernization in farming techniques has influenced the need to study soil in a more detailed manner. Variance in soil properties due to abrupt climatic conditions has induced the Digital Soil Monitoring market growth. Critical factors such as over utilization and under utilization of land resources may result in more sustainable farming practices such as moisture check, salinity check, and temperature check. These technological advancements are helping farmers in various aspects such as optimum water usage depending on the nature of soil, crop, and weather. With the help of this sensing feature, it became easier for farmers to detect and limit resource use as per the farming requirement.
Digital soil monitoring is also helping in limiting the over-irrigation which in turn saves crops from diseases and predicting any early disease on the farm. Positive economic factors such as low-cost technology, limited electricity use, and saving water will proliferate the digital soil monitoring market growth.
The industry also has high penetration in non-agricultural sectors such as golf courses and stadiums. These sports grounds are vast and need consistent checking due to heavy usage. Increasing sports trends on a commercial basis as well as recreational activity will promote the deployment of Digital Soil Monitoring Systems in the sports venue sector.
Digital Soil Monitoring Market: By Technology
The technology segment is bifurcated into software and hardware systems. The software segment is expected to witness the highest gains in the coming years. Technological advancements and the need to make a record of each farming activity and reading patterns will influence the growth in this segment. Softwares are economical solutions and also have a predictive analysis which makes it easier for a user to make a decision.
The hardware systems consist of equipment of various sizes depending on the need and usage. These equipments are placed near the farmland to check various factors which may affect the productivity. As of now, hardware accounts for the largest share in the technology segment.
Digital Soil Monitoring Market: By Application
Observing moisture, salinity, and temperature are major applications in the industry. The change in farming techniques due to consistently fluctuating weather conditions has put pressure on farmers to decide on the crop selection, irrigation method, water requirement, and fertilizers selection. These DSM systems are making it easier for farmers to make these critical decisions and thereby increasing land fertility and crop production.
Moisture check will witness the highest share in the coming years due to its major contribution to crop productivity. Various technologically advanced software and hardware can be deployed to check the farms’ moisture resistance and water needs. Temperature check will observe significant growth during the forecast period due to its increasing use in regions with high climate fluctuation.
Digital Soil Monitoring Market: By End-Use
Digital Soil Monitoring has wide usage in agriculture and non-agriculture sectors. The agriculture sector is limited to farms. However, the non-agriculture includes golf courses, outdoor stadiums, nurseries, and other lands for recreational purposes. The agriculture sector holds the largest industry share due to its size and critical need to increase land productivity. The non-agriculture sector will witness the highest gains in the coming years. Increasing demand from nurseries and golf courses will induce the demand. Trends for recreational activities or leisure gardening will also promote product penetration.
Digital Soil Monitoring Market: By System
Sensing & imagery, ground-based sensing, and robotics & telematics are major systems used in the industry. The ground-based sensing led the market share and is expected to maintain the dominance in the coming years. The need to adopt intelligent technology which promotes sustainable farming and increasing farm productivity has encouraged the need for ground-based sensing equipment and software among farmers. The ground-based sensing systems help in observing various factors including but not limited to moisture, humidity, and temperature. With the help of these parameters, users can decide by comparing suggested options from mobile apps.
Digital Soil Monitoring Market: By Region
North America Digital Soil Monitoring Market will lead the regional share and is expected to maintain the dominance during the forecast period. Increased expenditure on technologically advanced farming techniques along with high demand for sustainable farming are key factors persuading regional growth. Moreover, the presence of major industry players concentrated in the U.S. will impact the overall system adoption.
Asia Pacific will observe the highest growth which is attributed to the wide agricultural geographics and being the major exporter of several staple food crops. China, India, Malaysia, Japan and Indonesia are major contributing countries due to their agriculture capacities.
Middle East & Africa industrial growth will be highly influenced due to limited resource factors and critical climatic conditions. African countries need consistent Digital Soil Monitoring to utilize the resources in a limiting manner. Erosion, infertility, and limited water reserves are major factors in this region.
