Vertical Farming Market 2018 Leading Growth Drivers, Emerging Audience, Segments, Sales, Profits & Analysis


Market Highlights:

The global vertical farming market is predicted to generate around USD 6 billion by end 2022. It can witness a CAGR of 21 percent during 2016 to 2022 (forecast period). Through vertical farming, crops are raised in controlled environments. Vertical farming, primarily, aids “crop-growth” in the absence of water & soil. It exists in various sizes & shapes and employs mechanisms; like aeroponics, hydroponics, etc.

Some of the key drivers of the worldwide market are reduced dependence on soil & water, higher food demand, burgeoning population, and better-quality food. Moreover; the usage of novel technologies, implementation of artificial lights, and zero adoption of fertilizers & pesticides are anticipated to add market sales in the forecast period.

In addition to the above, the “food-purchasing” behavior of customers and adoption of “bio-friendly” vegetables & fruits affect the industry. Cardiac illnesses and obesity incidences are high among consumers. Changes in weather and shortage of ground water prompt traditional cultivators to employ “alternate farming.” These factors coupled with health awareness should propel the vertical farming industry.

In contrast to traditional farming, indoor cultivation results in wider crop-production throughout the year. Moreover, indoor farming saves crops from extreme climates. On the other hand; high spending across urban areas, production of high-quality crops, and greater consumption of “artificial-lighting” hamper the market.

Although, Vertical Farming is a viable form of agricultural practice that supports effective and efficient harvest with only 5% of water usage for five times more the yield, with up to 350 times more greens than conventional farms of similar size, is yet not cost effective. Vertical Farming requires an initial capital investment of $200 to 500 million. Also, one of the biggest challenges associated with Vertical Farming is energy usage cost from the lighting technology, which coupled with the cost of purchase and implementation of solar tubes, LEDs, mirrors, drain & sewerage treatment plant, rotational carousels, robotics, sensors, and controlled environments is actually more of a commodity.
