Global Indoor Farming Market to Grow at 11.8% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Development of Semi-Automated Greenhouse Facilities

April 14, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indoor Farming Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global indoor farming market size reached US$ 15.7 Billion in 2021. Indoor farming, also known as indoor gardening and vertical farming, is a method of growing crops or plants on a large scale in a controlled environment. It is a part of modern agriculture that utilizes a combination of hydroponics and artificial lighting to provide nutrients and light required for the growth of plants. As compared to conventional agriculture, it offers higher productivity, faster growth of the plant, reduced resource consumption, lesser use of pesticides and better food safety. It also saves energy, eliminates wastewater by recycling throughout the operation and reduces risks in the food supply chain.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Indoor Farming Market Trends:

Rapid urbanization, rising world population and escalating demand for secure and consistent food supplies are among the key factors creating a favorable impact on the indoor farming market. Apart from this, the scarcity of land and water required for conventional agriculture is also contributing to the widespread adoption of indoor farming across the globe. This farming technique enables food production in a sustainable surrounding, thereby minimizing the use of chemical pesticides and increasing the production of organic yields. Moreover, the development of high-tech, fully controlled, and semi-automated greenhouse facilities in rural areas, in confluence with the growing instances of floods, droughts and other natural disasters, is driving the market further. Other major factors anticipated to propel the market growth include numerous technological advancements in farming sensors and regulating and monitoring devices. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
