Submersible pumps are important devices used for irrigation purposes in agriculture. They are designed to operate underwater and transfer water or effluents from water bodies to the required location. Submersible pumps offer various advantages compared to conventional pumps such as easy and quick installation, ability to operate underwater as deep as required, and low maintenance cost. Growing agricultural activities and the need for efficient irrigation systems to boost crop production has been a major factor augmenting the demand for submersible pumps globally. Submersible pumps are increasingly being used for agricultural irrigation in open fields and greenhouses.
The global Submersible Pumps Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 14178.84 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
