Key Market Trends

Increasing Need For Maximizing Crop Yield

One of the main reasons for the diminishing yield is that the cultivable land is shrinking from year to year. The other reasons for lower yield are unfavorable weather conditions, like droughts, floods, soil erosion, and heavy utilization of pesticides, which is decreasing the fertility of the soil, globally.​ The main reasons for maximizing crop yields are to feed the increasing population and meet the demand for food. High yield of good quality within small regions may be achieved using advanced farming techniques, like indoor farming. An increase in health consciousness and consumption of residue-free food has paved the way for the usage of advanced techniques, like indoor farming. People are growing the necessary crops in their own houses on a small scale, in order to have food that is free from pests and this has resulted in a higher yield.​ Therefore, the increasing need for maximizing crop yields is expected to drive the indoor farming market in the future. ​

North America Dominates By Being The Largest Market for Indoor Farming

North America accounted for the largest share in the global indoor farming industry in 2018. With the help of high-efficiency LED lights and enhanced indoor management practices, the US growers have been able to adopt large scale indoor farming and are expected to reduce energy lighting costs by 50%, hence reducing the carbon footprint of controlled environment agriculture. As per the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the average yield of conventional lettuce farming doubled by two folds, when cultivated through vertical farming. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, drylands in Mexico occupy approximately 101.5 million hectares of land, thereby thrusting the need for indoor farming practices. Canada has also seen a positive growth trend, contributing significantly to the world exports of hydroponically grown tomatoes. The growth of hydroponics and aeroponics systems in the region is further driving the overall indoor farming market, majorly due to the increasing focus on adopting innovative and efficient technologies to improve the yields.
