What is Vertical Farming? How Big is Vertical Farming Market Size & Share?

  • Overview

Vertical farming is a modern agricultural practice that involves growing crops in vertically stacked layers using controlled-environment agriculture techniques. This approach often incorporates soilless farming methods such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics.

The growth of the vertical farming market size in recent years can be attributed to the declining arable land and water scarcity, along with factors such as increasing demand for fresh and locally grown produce, advancements in technology and automation, and growing awareness of the benefits of sustainable agriculture. These trends are expected to continue driving market growth in the forecast period.

Prominent Drivers of the market

  • Declining arable land and water crisis: The loss of arable land and water scarcity is one of the primary driving factors for vertical farming market growth. As traditional agriculture becomes increasingly challenging due to soil degradation, urbanization, and water shortages, vertical farming provides an alternative method for growing crops using less land and water.
  • Efficient use of space and resources: Vertical farming allows for the efficient use of space and resources. Growing crops in vertically stacked layers requires less land than traditional farming methods. Farming in urban areas is possible, bringing fresh produce closer to consumers while reducing transportation costs and emissions.
  • Precise control over water usage: Vertical farming can significantly reduce water usage in agriculture. It allows for precise control of plant water delivery, reducing waste and optimizing water use. This is especially crucial in areas where water is scarce. Thus, vertical farming market shares are expanding.
  • Increasing demand for fresh and locally grown produce: The demand for fresh and locally grown produce is increasing as consumers become more interested in where their food comes from and how it is grown. Vertical farming, which allows for year-round production of fresh and pesticide-free produce, is an attractive alternative to traditional farming methods.

Top Report Findings

  • Loss of arable land and scarcity of water are the driving factors for the market's growth.
  • The market is primarily segmented based on growth mechanism, structure, components, crops, and region.
  • North America region dominates the market.

Top Trends Influencing the Market

  • Technological advancements: The vertical farming industry is experiencing rapid technological advancement with IoT, artificial intelligence, and automation innovations. These technologies enable vertical farmers to monitor and control parameters such as temperature, humidity, and nutrient levels to enhance crop quality and yield and reduce operational costs.
  • Growing demand for locally produced food: The demand for locally produced food is surging due to consumers' growing concerns over the environment, food safety, and health. Vertical farming's ability to produce fresh, nutritious, and pesticide-free food in urban areas with limited space is attracting attention from consumers and investors.
  • Shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly agriculture: Vertical farming is a sustainable and eco-friendly farming method that uses significantly less water and land than conventional farming methods. This approach also eliminates the need for harmful pesticides and herbicides, making it an environmentally conscious solution. Thus, this vertical farming market trend is giving pace to growth.
  • Rising global population and urbanization: The world's population is continuously increasing, and urbanization is also on the rise. Vertical farming can help address the growing population's challenges by producing fresh and healthy food in urban areas without the need for large land areas.

Segmental Analysis

  • In 2022, the Hydroponics sector was expected to be the dominant player in the market

Based on the growth mechanism of vertical farming market segmentation, Hydroponic systems can utilize less water than conventional farming methods since the water is reused in a closed-loop system, resulting in up to 90% water savings. This makes hydroponics a more sustainable and environmentally conscious way of cultivating crops. In addition, hydroponic systems provide ideal growing conditions, resulting in increased crop yields compared to traditional farming methods.

  • Building-based Vertical Farms segment held the top position in the market in 2022

Vertical farming market sales have witnessed a surge in building-based vertical farms in recent years. These farms are an innovative solution for producing fresh, nutritious, and sustainable food in urban areas with limited space. The growth of this segment can be attributed to various factors such as efficient use of space, reduced transportation costs, a controlled environment, and higher crop yields.
