Market Overview

The Global Hydroponic Nutrients Market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period.

  • Increasing pressure on global arable land, increased demand for nutrition and shift in the dietary pattern of the global population towards consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables are the factors driving the increase in area under hydroponics. In countries with unfavorable climatic conditions for open land farming, hydroponics provides a sustainable option for the cultivation of fresh produce to supply to markets. 


  • Fertilizers developed specifically for hydroponic systems have been developed by companies to tap into the growing market for hydroponics. In addition to being completely water-soluble, these fertilizers also are generally compound mixtures providing multiple nutrients to the crops grown in a hydroponic system, albeit with one of the primary nutrients having a major share.  

Scope of the Report

The scope of the Global Hydroponic Nutrients Market report is restricted to fertilizers used in a hydroponic system. The market is segmented by scale into nutrients used in Home-Based Hydroponic Systems and those used in Commercial Hydroponic Systems. By Nutrient Type, the market is segmented into Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Other Nutrients and by chemical origin, the market is segmented into synthetic and organic hydroponic nutrients. The geographical segmentation provides in-depth insights into the market trends in the major global markets across the world.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Area under Commercial Hydroponics to Drive the Market

Although hydroponics is a relatively recent technology, the growth in the area under hydroponic cultivation has increased exponentially over the review period. The adoption of home-based hydroponic systems has been increasing steadily, especially in developed markets, but the growth in commercial hydroponics has been more skewed towards emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. In terms of crops, leafy vegetables and microgreens have traditionally been the most commonly cultivated hydroponic crops. However, the area under hydroponics in crops that are exotic to warmer climates such as cherry tomatoes, lettuce, microgreens and a wide variety of other cool-season crops, has been increasing. An important crop that holds potential in developed markets such as the United States and Canada is Cannabis, which has immense potential in the expansion of area under hydroponics. With an increase in adoption of hydroponics at a commercial level in different crop situations and geographies, the market for crop and nutrient-specific fertilizers are projected to have a robust growth rate over the forecast period.

Middle-East to Register Rapid Growth

Hydroponics is a system of agriculture that is highly suited when the climatic conditions do not allow open-field cultivation. Countries in the Middle-East, especially those in the GCC region have been at the forefront of area expansion in hydroponics over the review period (2015-2018). Because of the highly arid climate in the region, coupled with the less percentage of arable land, the region is projected to be the fastest-growing market over the forecast period. The revenue generated from the cultivation of fresh fruits and vegetables through hydroponics is projected to reach USD 520 million by 2023. Governments in the region are also increasingly investing in providing infrastructural and policy support since increased cultivation of fresh produce through hydroponics fits into their plan of reducing import-dependence for fruits and vegetables. The continuous area expansion is projected to provide a fillip to the growth of the hydroponic nutrient market in the region.
