The global Vertical Farming Produce market size is expected to be worth around US$ 6.45 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Vertical Farming Produce market size was valued at US$ 1.03 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 25.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
Increasing demand for fresh organic vegetables, the emergence of state-of-the-art agriculture techniques, and growing urbanization are critical factors responsible for market growth. The global farmland area has decreased owing to rapid urbanization across the globe. Degradation of soil quality is another reason for the emergence of alternative farming techniques, such as aquaponics, hydroponics, and aeroponics.
The increasing use of such cultivation techniques by the vertical farmers is expected to boost the demand for fresh produce from vertical farms over the forecast period. However, high initial investments in vertical farms and lack of adoption from top agricultural output countries, such as Russia, India, Brazil, and Ukraine, are some of the restraining factors in the market.
According to the World Bank Group, the global arable land per capita has declined from 0.197 hectares in 2013 to 0.192 hectares in 2016. The scarcity of arable land owing to land degradation has urged the farmers to adopt new solutions to produce fresh food. Thus, many farmers have shifted to the modern indoor cultivation methods, wherein the crops are stacked in layers inside buildings, shipping containers, and warehouses. Such indoor vertical farms enable the expansion of the total plantation area using the stacked layers of potted seeds. Furthermore, as the crops are grown in a contained environment, farmers can grow various vegetables that cannot be grown outside due to unfavorable conditions, which are anticipated to drive the market growth in regions such as the Middle East and Africa.
The tomatoes segment led the market and accounted for more than 19.01% of the global revenue share in 2019. This high share is attributable to the high average demand for tomatoes in all regions compared to other crops such as lettuce, spinach, peppers, cucumbers, herbs, and so on. Further, the global per capita consumption for tomatoes is very high, which results in higher demand from consumers across the globe. Numerous large-scale indoor vertical farming companies have captured the opportunities to cater to the rising demand for tomatoes. The companies such as BrightFarms; Plenty Unlimited Inc.; and Signify Holdings are actively involved in vertical farming and selling of tomatoes in urban regions.
The hdroponics segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 45.01% in 2019 and is expected to remain dominant over the forecast period. Hydroponic farming is a method of growing plants without soil, where the soil is replaced by a mineral solution inserted around the plant roots. Increasing awareness among consumers regarding the effects of pesticides and artificial ripening agents over their health is expected to drive the demand for hydroponically grown vegetables. The method eliminates the need for such products, thereby providing nutritionally superior produce.
The building-based segment led the market and accounted for more than 60.01% of the global revenue share in 2019. Vertical farms inside a building can produce large volumes of vegetables for the vast customer base, increasing the segment's sales revenue. Further, the building-based structure can accommodate a large number of crops, which helps minimize the cultivation cost due to economies of scale. The building-based farm structure is widely accepted in Japan, China, and other Asian countries. It is also the fastest-growing segment in terms of revenue owing to substantial investments in new building-based farm locations. Companies, such as AeroFarms, Badia Farms, and Plenty Unlimited Inc., hold the largest building-based vertical farms across the globe, and numerous other companies are heavily investing in building-based large-scale farms.
The Middle East is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR of 26.7% from 2020 to 2027. The growth can be witnessed through the emergence of vertical farm designers, builders, and cultivation companies in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Some of the notable stakeholders in the region include Badia Farms, Tower Farms, Fresh Oasis, and Green Factory, among many others. The Middle Eastern market is anticipated to open significant growth opportunities for vertical farming. The farmers from this region are now able to cultivate crops such as lettuce and other leafy greens, which are difficult to grow through traditional agriculture.
