Vertical Farming Market: Leading Segments

Vertical farming market is segregated into different technological methods such as hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaponics, aerofarms, plantscapers, modular farms, and cubic farming systems. Hydroponic systems use mineral nutrient solutions to feed plants in water. On the other hand, plants growing in aeroponic systems use air or mist with no soil, and very little water. They are, undoubtedly, the most efficient ways of vertical farming as they make plants potentially healthy and nutritious compared to other traditional methods. Thus, the hydroponics and aeroponic application segments in the vertical farming market are projected to grow at a CAGR of 26.37% over the forecast period.

At present, indoor vertical farming is a growing trend in APAC countries. Countries such as Singapore, Japan, China, and India are applying machine learning, along with cloud computing, to achieve higher yields through vertical farming methods. Thus, demand from APAC countries accounted for 26.48% in the global vertical farming market in 2018. Changing food patterns, increasing population, and shortage of arable land are key reasons driving the vertical farming market in APAC region.

Vertical Farming Market: Trends

· Cloud-based data-driven techniques are being introduced in vertical farming. These techniques enable higher yields, reduce electricity costs, and identify optimal configurations for vertical farming. These techniques are widely employed in APAC countries, followed by those in North America and Europe.

· The pressure on limited resources such as water and arable land, and threats including climate change and increasing population is driving growth for the vertical farming market.

· Recently, Philips Lighting collaborated with vertical farms equipped with horticultural LED lighting in closed environments. Collaborations like this enhance the commercial value of production and ensure lesser wastage of crops, thereby boosting the vertical farming market.
