According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Qatar Greenhouse Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the Qatar greenhouse market size reached US$ 125 Million in 2020. Greenhouses are outdoor high-tech structures that are widely utilized to grow plants in a highly controlled environment. They are built with glass and plastic roofs and walls that enable sunlight to pass through to facilitate the process of photosynthesis. These structures are equipped with advanced technologies to efficiently control various environmental factors, such as temperature, humidity, ventilation, irrigation, light exposure and fertilization. This aids in stabilizing the environment for the cultivation of various crops, particularly fruits, flowers and vegetables, with improved plant health.
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.
