Vertical Farming produce Market

Vertical farming is a type of agricultural method in which crops or plants are grown in stacked vertical layers. In this method, harmful pesticide, soil, and synthetic fertilizer are not used for growing the crops instead the environment is controlled using technological methods. A variety of crops can be cultivated using the method of vertical farming that cannot be grown in the climatic conditions of some regions. The setup for vertical farming needs advanced technology that includes humidity and temperature sensors, cameras, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and others. The solitary source used for light in vertical farming is LED grow lights. Investments have been made by various independent financiers and venture capitalists due to the increasing integration of advanced technology in vertical farming. Various emerging vertical farming companies are diverting their focus towards low-interest loans to accommodate their company with facilities, machinery, and advanced equipment.

The COVID-19 pandemic had an adverse impact on various industries and shattered the global economy due to emergency lockdown, social distancing, and other regulations imposed by the local governments across the various parts of the world. However, the pandemic had a positive impact on the vertical farming produce market owing to the increasing adoption of harvested crops that are fresh, safe, and have minimum human exposure.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increasing adoption of vertical farming methods over the traditional methods in countries with adverse farming conditions is anticipated to propel the market growth.
  • Wide usage of light-emitting diodes in vertical farming as they are affordable due to advancement in the technology is expected to drive the market expansion.
  • Lack of skilled and knowledgeable workforce to manage advanced systems used in this method that includes sensors, artificial intelligence, and others is estimated to restrain the market growth.
  • Circulation of air and its uniform maintenance within the vertical farm is a key challenge that can hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Rising demand for the cultivation of cannabis using vertical farming is projected to create key opportunities for the market expansion.
