Soil Moisture Sensor Market Outlook – 2027 

The global soil moisture sensor market was valued at $215.8 million in 2019 and is projected to reach $411.2 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 9.1% from 2020 to 2027. Currently, the exponential growth of population is the major concern globally, which has led to more acquisition of land for building homes and increase in water consumption in these newly developed residential areas. Hence, the key resources required to produce food are anticipated to diminish in the future. As a result, producing the required quantity of food remains a critical issue. Thus, advancements in technology plays a vital role to improve the production yield and quality. 

Soil Moisture Sensor Market

Soil moisture sensors are one of the prominent agricultural equipment used to gauge the volumetric water content within the soil. Soil moisture sensors enable farmers to take precise decisions in planning for agricultural activities. In addition, these sensors serve as useful equipment for environmentalists in determining the drought conditions and understand the biodiversity in a region. Moreover, they play an integral role in soil water profiling, pollution monitoring, civil engineering, and forestry. Considering these factors, soil moisture sensor market is estimated to witness a steady growth during the forecast period.

Factors such as surge in adoption of smart agricultural equipment and increase in research activities in the field of agriculture and environment act as the key driving forces of the global soil moisture sensor market growth. However, emergence of soilless farming techniques hinders the growth of the growth. On the contrary, the introduction of wireless soil moisture sensors is expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the growth of the global market during the forecast period. 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has negligible impact on the soil moisture sensor market growth rate in 2020, and the market is anticipated to witness steady growth by the end of 2021. Although partial or complete lockdown was imposed across various countries, agricultural activities were exclusively excluded from lockdown. However, companies faced some delay in procuring raw materials. In addition, the disrupted global supply chain posed some challenges for manufacturers to reach their customers in niche areas. Despite these factors, agricultural activities continued, and the demand for soil moisture sensors from farmers prevailed.

Analyst Review

  The world is witnessing fourth agricultural revolution. Farmers are acutely aware of need of sustainable resource management. Soil is of utmost importance for agriculture as well as for ecosystem. In agriculture, determination of soil moisture content enables assessment of profitability and viability of crop production. Thus, the demand for soil moisture sensors is gaining momentum globally. Some of the common applications of soil moisture sensors include irrigation management, bioremediation, landfill management, wastewater reclamation, crop yield forecasting, and early alerting of drought conditions.

The traditional methods used for soil moisture measurement have been limited to in-situ measurements, and hence remote sensing techniques are commonly used to obtain results from soil moisture sensors. However, companies and researchers are focusing to develop digital soil moisture sensors integrated with other advanced technologies such as Big Data analytics and machine learning to boost the adoption of smart agriculture techniques.   

The soil moisture sensor market is expected to witness notable growth from 2019 to 2027, due to increase in adoption of precise farming in various countries for more quality and quantity production. Precise farming involves implementation of soil moisture sensors in every field and continuous monitoring of moisture content in the soil, which, in turn, boosts the market growth rapidly.   

Various leading manufacturers such as Acclima Inc., Delta-T Devices Ltd, METER Group Inc., OTT Hydromet GmbH, SDEC France, Smartcultiva Corporation, Spectrum Technologies Inc., Stevens Water Monitoring Systems Inc., Trellis, and Vegetronix Inc.  occupy a prominent revenue share in the soil moisture sensor market.
