Global Irrigation Machinery Market Restraints:
High initial cost associated with use of irrigation machinery to restrain growth of the market
Sprinkler and drip irrigation systems are known to be technically complex procedures. The cost of installation for these irrigation systems is high, which further impacts adoption of such systems in emerging countries. In such countries, small-scale farmers are highly reluctant for adopting irrigation systems, owing to the high cost of investment required initially. Thus, adoption of rate for drip irrigation systems is impacted by lack of capital for purchasing and installing the equipment. This factor in turn is expected to hinder growth of the global irrigation machinery market during the forecast period. However, major market players are focusing on development of cost effective equipment with higher efficiency, which is likely to drive the market growth in the near future.
High cost associated of maintenance to hinder the market pace
The use of irrigation machinery involves high initial capital investment and along with it the cost of maintenance for these machineries is also high. These machines require constant inspection and maintenance for irrigation systems. This factor in turn acts as a major constrain in the irrigation machinery market. Moreover, the additional cost of drip-tape disposal, leak repairs and high-quality water also add into the cost of maintenance. Thus, this factor in turn impacts adoption of these systems, which in turn is likely to hinder growth of the global irrigation machinery market during the forecast period.

*Definition: Irrigation Machinery is a type of equipment that uses controlled amounts of water to help grow crops, landscape plants, and lawns. It is a major aspect of agriculture for over 5,000 years and has been developed by many cultures. It is also used for other purposes, such as cooling livestock, reducing dust, and disposing of sewage.
Irrigation Machinery is a type of machinery that supplies water to agricultural land and crops to encourage hydration and growth. The process of irrigation involves delivering water directly to the root systems of crops, reducing evaporation and runoff and increasing efficiency of water use. This technology is a key factor in the growing need for water conservation in agriculture. Drip irrigation is another type of system that spreads water over large areas. It is less labor intensive than sprinkler irrigation and requires a much smaller amount of maintenance. This method is particularly effective in high-water-table areas.
Increasing use of automatic irrigation equipment is driving factor for the growth of the global irrigation machinery market. This technology helps in automating the water distribution process and enables farmers to focus more on cultivation activities. Moreover, it is a more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient method of providing water to crops.
However, high initial maintenance costs and unskilled agronomic man force are expected to hinder the global irrigation machinery market growth during the forecast period.
