Cloud Seeding Technology Market : Global Demand Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2021

Published On : 11:56 PM, 25th April, 2018 REP-ID-43 Category: Chemicals and Materials

Cloud Seeding Market Overview

Cloud seeding is a procedure of seeding the clouds with chemicals such as dry ice or silver iodide to stimulate the phenomenon of precipitation and bring rain. This is done through creation of ice crystals from cloud droplets which are in the super cooled state. Once the super cooled cloud droplets turn into ice crystals by reacting with silver iodide or dry ice, they become too heavy to remain suspended in air for long and finally melt down in form of rain.

In addition to increasing penetration, cloud seeding also helps in mitigating damages from hail and dispersing fog.

Market Size and Forecast

Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to hold the highest demand of cloud seeding equipment over the forecast period of 2015-2021. The market in the region is likely to spark from higher dependency of agriculture on monsoon, strong economic growth and rising demand of water owing to rapidly expanding population in countries such as India and China. China produced 56 billion tons of artificial rain in 2013 and planned to increase the volume to 281 billion tons in coming future.

The U.S. cloud seeding market is still at its nascent stage. Spending on artificial rain in the U.S. accounted to USD 16 Million in the year 2013.    

Europe cloud seeding equipment market is driven by huge spending on cloud seeding by countries such as Russia (invested USD 1.4 Million on cloud seeding in May, 2016)

Growth Drivers and challenges

Rising focus on preventing farmers from detrimental effects of draughts and increasing scarcity of water is likely to spark the growth of global cloud seeding market over the forecast period i.e. 2015-2021.

In addition to that increasing population, which in-turn escalates demand of water consumption and augments need if water management, is also expected to bolster the global cloud seeding market in future.

However, high cost of usage and lack of awareness is anticipated to restrain development of the global cloud seeding market in future.
