Agricultural Irrigation

Water stress is an issue that is becoming increasingly significant in many arid regions of the world. Agriculture is responsible for over 70% of freshwater consumption worldwide. Thus, the global market for modern irrigation solutions in agriculture is already a billion-dollar market and is growing by approximately 20% annually.

The markets for agricultural irrigation solutions, however, are still in an early stage of development. Farmers in regions with high water stress are still using inefficient irrigation solutions causing high water consumption. This is due to a lack of knowledge on how to modernize and manage irrigation systems successfully.

Hence, opportunities for German companies arise. For instance through consulting, engineering or the supply of components.

Therefore, the working group invites GWP members to inform themselves about international challenges, needs and approaches to solutions in agricultural irrigation and to discuss and develop joint projects for a better positioning abroad.
