The analysts forecast the global soil moisture sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 14.56% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: Introduction of wireless sensor will be a key trend for market growth. Soil moisture sensors help measure the moisture content of landscapes on a real-time basis. A new technology that is gaining momentum in the market is the introduction of wireless sensors. Wireless networks help gather local soil moisture data for optimal irrigation from irrigation zones.
This data helps control the irrigation system in order to keep soil within the predetermined zones at optimal moisture levels. Apart from monitoring and recording data from soil-moisture sensors and irrigation flow meters, the system manages, analyzes, and presents data with a web-accessible analytical software package, which can enable central management of multiple landscape areas.
According to the report, maintenance of sports turf will be a key driver for market growth. The importance of managing turfs meant for sports like golf, football, and rugby is the primary reason for the demand for soil moisture sensors. The most important factor in maintaining sports turfs is managing water content. This factor affects the performance in terms of ball roll and bounce, and it also affects the growth of the grass, breakdown of organic matter, the ability of nutrients to move to the roots, and buildup within the soil or as a thatch, fauna and flora populations within the root zone (including pathogen populations), and trafficking of the green by club members and grounds staff.
Therefore, soil water has a critical role to play in turf health. Apart from the ability to monitor soil moisture across a turf to provide information on the variability of moisture, it can also focus on drainage issues, potential turf stress onset, the evenness of irrigation, or hydrophobicity development. Therefore, accurate and reliable measurement of soil water is an important management tool.
