On the other hand, the lack of awareness about these sensors among farmers and gardeners in emerging markets is inhibiting the growth of the market. However, favorable government initiatives and advancements in farming techniques are likely to boost the awareness, thereby propelling the market in the near future.

On the basis of type, the global soil moisture sensors market can be segmented into volumetric and water potential. Water potential sensors can be categorized into gypsum block, tensiometer, and granular matrix. The sub-segments of volumetric sensors can be capacitance, TDT, and probe. Based on applications, the market can be divided into agriculture, sports turf, residential, weather forecasting, landscaping, construction, forestry, and research studies. The increasing popularity of golf is escalating the need to manage golf turfs, which in turn is fuelling the growth of the sports turf segment. The agriculture segment is likely to register a significant growth rate in the forthcoming years, thanks to the ever rising demand for food.

The key regions studied in the research report are North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. North America and Latin America, collectively, are expected to account for a large share of the revenue pie. The rapid modernization in the agriculture sector is fuelling the demand for soil moisture sensors in these regions. The Asia Pacific market is estimated to flourish owing to a large number of ongoing and upcoming agriculture research projects in Japan and China.
