According to Future Market Consulting analysis, Global Cloud Seeding Market size was valued at USD 1.23 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 7.69 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.04 % during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.
To enhance the probability of rains, a substance is dispersed into the atmosphere using cloud seeding equipment. The component may be dry ice, silver iodide, or another substance. Because it can increase precipitation and snowfall in regions that are suffering drought or that are not receiving enough precipitation, cloud seeding is crucial.
Weather patterns are being significantly impacted by the worrisome increase in worldwide warming and carbon footprint, which is being fueled by a variety of industrial and logistical activities. Major seasons like summer, winter, and rain are becoming erratic worldwide. Extreme weather, heatwave & cold waves, and sizable cyclones are predicted to increase in frequency over the next few years. Environmental scientists have developed a workable method to regulate the weather as a result of such disastrous circumstances. When necessary, the cloud seeding method can boost cloud precipitation and add snowfall or rain. Since many years ago, commercial applications such as the use of airborne or surface cloud seeding to maintain constant state of the environment around runways have been used.
The deployment of cloud seeding throughout drought-stricken areas and the creation of advanced flare tools for aircraft weather modification are the two main trends in the market. The COVID-19 pandemic's effects, however, have slowed the market's expansion. The reliability and complicated design of the machinery and systems are limiting market expansion. The US and UAE governments' expenditures in cloud seeding facilities have fueled the market's expansion. The major players are making investments in a chemical cloud seeding solution built on cutting edge technology. In a similar vein, nations like China, Australia, and India are heavily investing in cloud seeding in order to strengthen both its business and military application in the future years.
If cloud seeding is used continuously, weather modification through it is a complicated procedure that could have long-term effects on the atmosphere. Although weather modification has been used for years, widespread commercial acceptance is being hampered by the lack of conclusive findings regarding its success rate. The inability to perform cloud seeding on every cloud is another significant barrier to business acceptance. For best outcomes, there must be a set of weather conditions, such as a minimum density of seeding clouds. To eliminate these clouds, sophisticated weather report and surveillance technologies are needed, which reduces the company's commercial possibilities.

The global cloud seeding market is divided based on the type of seeding, the equipment used, the application, the end use, the type of flare used, the seeding technique, and the geographic region. It is divided into two types: ground-based and aerial-based cloud sowing. It is divided into three categories, depending on the application: increasing precipitation, reducing hail harm, and dispersing fog. End-burning flares, ejection flares, automatic/remote-based generators, human generators, and flare trees are the different types of flares that are classified. By using a technique, the industry is split into glaciogenic and hygroscopic segments. The growing need for freshwater and end users' increasing awareness of weather modification strategies are both variables that have contributed to the expansion of the global market for cloud seeding equipment.
During the forecast period, the aerial segment is anticipated to dominate the global market. During the forecast period, rising worries about water shortages and the need for effective water resource management are anticipated to drive demand for cloud seeding method.
Based on Technique, the hygroscopic category will dominate its market from 2023 to 2030 due to increasing investments in programs to modify the clouds in order to raise ground water levels quickly.
