According to the new market research report, the vertical farming market is expected to be valued at USD 5.80 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 24.8% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of the vertical farming market could be attributed to the growing urbanization, rising demand for high quality food with no use of pesticides and herbicides, and independent farming technique with low impact of climatic conditions. However, the high initial investments, dearth of technical acumen, and limitations on the variety of crops grown are the restraints in the vertical farming market.

Of all the major hardware offerings, the lighting device and hydroponic growth mechanism is expected to dominate the vertical farming market. The services segment is expected to witness high growth opportunities in the vertical farming market. The growing research and technological advancements related to robotics and automation in vertical farming is increasing the demand for consulting, integration, and support services.

Among all the growth mechanisms, the hydroponics growth mechanism held the major share of the vertical farming market in 2015 as this is a widely adopted growth mechanism because of the less complexity in implementation. The aeroponics growth mechanism is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. Aeroponics growth mechanism is advantageous as it facilitates faster plant growth, wherein more number of plants could be grown in lesser time than under normal conditions.

The vertical farming market by structure includes building-based and shipping-container vertical farms. The shipping-container vertical farm is expected to have the highest market share between 2016 and 2022, as these containers feature innovative climate technology and growing equipment, along with the perfect environment throughout the year, regardless of geographic location for high-volume and consistent harvests. The building-based vertical farms are expected to grow at the fastest rate between 2016 and 2022 owing to their wide acceptance in China, Japan, and other Asian countries.

Vertical Farming Market

Of all the regions, Asia-Pacific (APAC) held the largest market share and Europe is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. In APAC, the vertical farming market is growing rapidly owing to the awareness regarding the importance of alternative methods of the farming because of the increase in population and limited fertile agriculture land. In Europe, the growth of vertical farming is majorly driven by the initiatives taken by the European Environment Agency (EEA) to build vertical farms to overcome challenges such as climate change, and continuous population growth, as well as to meet the challenges of producing food in a more environment-friendly way with quality and quantity. With the help of Sustain Solar Limited (U.K.), which works in the sector of food security for London, EEA has converted hundreds of flat roofs across the city into vegetable gardens to serve the local markets in the region.

High initial investments and limitations on the variety of crops grown are the restraining factors for the vertical farming market.

The major players in this market include Aerofarms (U.S.), Koninklijke Philips N.V. (the Netherlands), Illumitex, Inc. (U.S.), and Sky Greens (Singapore). These players have adopted various strategies such as new product developments, partnerships and contracts, and business expansions to cater to the needs of the vertical farming market.
