Agricultural Irrigation

Water stress is an issue that is becoming increasingly significant in not only arid regions of the world, but also everywhere else. Agriculture is responsible for over 70% of freshwater consumption worldwide. Thus, the global market for modern agricultural irrigation solutions is already a billion-dollar market and growing by approximately 20% annually.

At the same time, the markets for agricultural irrigation solutions 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, there is an increasing amount of opportunities for German companies. For instance in the areas of consulting, engineering, or the supply of components.

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.
