DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Soil
Moisture Sensor Market - Forecasts from 2018 to 2023" report
has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The soil moisture sensor market is projected to witness a CAGR of 14.63%
during the forecast period to grow to US$385.41 million by 2023,
increasing from US$169.91 million in 2017.
Measurement of soil moisture has become imperative particularly in the agricultural sector. Various research institutes and organizations such as the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Agriculture Research Service (ARS) are examining how soil interacts with the environment due to concern over soil health sustainability.
Environmental regulations to protect soil, research activities and
application of soil moisture sensor for various applications such as
agriculture, sports turf, landscaping among others are some of the key
factors contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, availability of
advanced soil measurement systems at affordable prices due to high
economies of scale is further expected to spur the market growth. The
lack of awareness among the farmers and the use of traditional methods
is the major restraint in the growth of the soil moisture sensor market.
The growing concern about the role of soil health in climate has increased the demand for soil sensors. The modernization of agriculture and the environmental factors like climate change, dwindling water resources, and the threatened habitats are the major factors driving the demand for these sensors.
The agriculture sector involves a significant application of soil
moisture sensors owing to mounting concerns over higher crop yields and
water consumption. Additionally, there has been a rise in the use of
soil moisture sensors in sports turfs to help optimize irrigation with
the increased number of golf courses and sports field globally.
