The grow lights market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.86 % between 2017 and 2022 to be valued at USD 5.11 Billion by 2022.  Grow lights, especially LEDs are used in a wide range of farming-related applications, owing to the advantages they offer such as high reliability, low power consumption, and spectral intensity. The increasing commercial greenhouse and vertical farming practices, which require the use of different grow lights, are driving the growth of the overall grow lights market.

This market is segmented on the basis of technology, installation, application, spectrum, and geography. The applications include vertical farming, indoor farming, commercial greenhouse, turf and landscaping, and research. Among all these applications, commercial greenhouse held the largest market share in 2016.

On the basis of technology, the grow lights market has been segmented into high-intensity discharge (HID), fluorescent lighting (FL), light emitting diode (LED), and other lighting technologies (induction and plasma lighting). Traditional lighting technologies such as high-intensity discharge (HID) and fluorescent lighting (FL) are quite popular among commercial growers as well as hobbyists. LED grow light is a new technology in horticultural lighting and is proving to be far more effective than other lighting technologies. Though LED grow lights are expensive, their long-term benefits in terms of energy efficiency make them an ideal option for indoor plant cultivation.

The grow lights market, on the basis of installation, has been segmented into retrofit and new installations. The market for retrofit installations is likely to hold a larger market share in the coming years. In the context of the grow lights market, retrofitting is defined as removing an existing grow light and installing a new one, either of the same lighting technology or of a different lighting technology. New installations are generally characterized by the expansion of existing facilities or setting up of a new facility, such as a new greenhouse or a vertical farm.

Grow Lights Market

Europe was the leading market for grow lights in 2016. Within Europe, the Netherlands is a leading exporter of horticultural produce, grown within its numerous automated commercial greenhouses. The concept of vertical farming is also gaining popularity in Europe. The rising population in Europe is a major driver for the increasing need to practice indoor horticulture in this region. Also, the severe cold in winters and insufficient sunlight in parts of Europe mandates indoor growing with the help of artificial lightings. North America was the second major market for grow lights in 2016. The emergence of vertical farms and the booming market for cannabis cultivation are driving the demand for grow lights in this region.

The initial capital required for the purchase of good-quality LED grow lights is higher compared to that of conventional lighting technologies such as FL and HID. This is mainly because each LED grow light unit contains arrays of LEDs, specially designed for horticultural applications. Often, these units contain different types of LEDs with variation in watts and wavelengths to provide a broad range of light spectrum and intensity for different types of plants. High-powered LED grow lights are available in the market for prices starting from USD 500. A high-powered induction grow light also costs USD 1,300 or more, whereas high-powered plasma grow light costs around USD 3,000. The costs of these grow lights are higher compared to that of a 1,000 watt HPS light, which costs between USD 100 and USD 150 and provides sufficient light for photosynthesis. This significant price difference is restraining the growers to adopt energy-efficient grow light technologies such as LED, induction lighting, and plasma lighting.

Royal Philips (Netherlands) holds a leading position in the grow lights market and is a recognized brand in the lighting and illumination business; it offers a diversified product portfolio for horticultural applications. The company has developed innovative products to cater to the horticultural lighting markets by combining its expertise in lighting technologies with inputs from plant psychologists. Its products come in a variety of shapes, with a range of lumen outputs, which are offered at various price points to suit a wide range of growers from hobbyists to commercial growers. The company mainly focuses on partnering and collaborating with other companies to grow in the LED grow lights market. For instance, Philips partnered with Dummen Orange (Netherlands) in 2016. This partnership is expected to benefit both the companies to exchange information as well as conduct experiments to understand the effects of LED Lighting on a variety of red roses and other crops. Philips offers its horticultural lighting solutions in all the major markets across the world with the help of its global distribution and servicing capabilities.
