The global soil moisture sensors market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020.

Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 12% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A soil moisture sensor is an instrument that is used for measuring water content in the active root zone on the volumetric and gravimetric bases. It relies on adjustable moisture content set-points, which are connected to an irrigation system controller and utilizes high-frequency capacitance technology. It assists in detecting and converting electrical conductivity to moisture units, providing real-time data, conserving water and improving the overall irrigation efficiency. Consequently, it is extensively being utilized in landscape irrigation, greenhouse management, bioremediation and wastewater reclamation. Moreover, it is considered suitable for research and experimental studies in the field of environmental science, agricultural science, biology, botany and horticulture.

Owing to the growing population and escalating demand for agricultural produce, there is an increase in the adoption of precision farming and yield monitoring practices to improve crop productivity. This, coupled with favorable government policies introduced in numerous countries, represents one of the key factors bolstering the global soil moisture sensors market growth. Apart from this, the increasing trend of gardening is boosting the sales of soil moisture sensors to monitor and maintain lush green gardens and lawns constantly. Moreover, these sensors are employed in the construction sector for detecting wetlands before initiating a project. Furthermore, advancements in satellite remote sensing technology are anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for manufacturers. Moreover, market players are introducing the Internet of Things (IoT)-based soil moisture sensors that can be buried underground permanently, which, in turn, helps in reducing maintenance costs.
