Pune, India, Dec. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global cloud seeding market size is set to gain traction from the increasing adoption of weather modification technologies by various countries, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled ”Cloud Seeding Market, 2023-2030”.

Cloud seeding is a technique employed to alter the structure of a cloud with the aim of promoting rain formation. This process involves the introduction of small particles such as silver iodide and dry ice into the clouds. The implementation of cloud seeding occurs through two primary methods: the deployment of large cannons to shoot particles into the sky, and the use of aircraft to release particles into the clouds.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a negative impact on the growth of the cloud seeding market. Lockdown measures implemented in various countries and delays in implementing niche projects have hindered the market’s progress. An example of this is Vail Resorts, a long-time supporter of climate modification activities in the central Colorado Mountains, which has decided to terminate funding for all its planned initiatives this year due to budget impacts caused by COVID-19. These circumstances have slowed down investment and development in cloud seeding projects and affected the overall growth of the market.

Drivers & Restraints:

The Increasing Global Concerns Regarding Water Scarcity Are Expected To Favor the Cloud Seeding Market

Water scarcity has emerged as a critical issue affecting a significant portion of the global population. With more than 2 billion people experiencing extreme water distress and 3.2 billion residing in agriculturally water-stressed areas, the need for solutions to address the growing water crisis is urgent. Cloud seeding systems offer a potential solution by artificially stimulating rain and increasing usable water supplies in water-constrained regions. This technology holds particular promise for arid regions like the Middle East and Northern Africa. For instance, researchers at the Khalifa University of Science and Technology in the UAE are exploring nanotechnology-based cloud seeding materials that enhance rain droplet size and density. These advancements in cloud seeding technology can help alleviate water scarcity challenges worldwide.

Regional Insights:

The North American Cloud Seeding Market Is Set For Growth, Driven By the Increasing Trend of Technological Advancements Expected To Boost Market Expansion in the Region

North America is expected to dominate the cloud seeding market share, primarily attributed to its advanced climate control systems. The region’s focus on utilizing climate modifying solutions for communication and surveillance purposes further contributes to market growth in North America.

Europe is also expected to have a healthy growth rate in this sector, as countries in the region are making concerted efforts to reduce their reliance on erratic rains and develop their own “rain cycles.” The market in Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is expected to expand due to the various rain-inducing programs undertaken by regional governments, as well as increased demand for commercial applications.

Competitive Landscape:

Government Programs to Promote Cloud Seeding in Arid Areas to Encourage Innovation

Government initiatives, such as increasing the implementation of artificial rainfall technologies to improve water levels in countries such as India, are expected to drive the demand for weather control equipment. Furthermore, governments in India, the United Arab Emirates, and China are investing heavily in weather modification activities, generating huge opportunities for research and innovation for market players.
