Vertical farming is one such solution that is used worldwide. Food crops can be easily grown in urban areas with vertical farming by planting them in layers stacked vertically. Controlled environment agriculture aimed at optimizing plant growth and soilless cultivation techniques such as hydroponics, aquaponics and aeroponics are commonly used. Buildings, shipping containers, tunnels, and abandoned mine shafts are common structures used to house vertical farming systems. The main advantage of using vertical farming technologies is a higher crop yield with a smaller footprint. Another coveted benefit is the increased ability to grow a greater variety of crops at once, since the crops don’t share the same plots during growth.

Market Dynamics and Factors:

Vertical farming holds great promise for the future of agriculture. The land requirement is quite small, the water consumption is 80% less, water is recycled and saved, no pesticides are used and with high-tech farms you are not really dependent on the weather. A vertical farm allows farming within the confines of a city. If there are farms nearby, the product will be delivered quickly and always fresh, unlike the chilled products usually found in supermarkets. Reducing transportation reduces fossil fuel costs and the resulting emissions, as well as transport spoilage. Increased consumer demand for organic produce, driven by higher living standards and disposable income, has paved the way for the development of vertical farming. As a result, it is expected to have the largest share of the vertical farming market during the forecast period.

Highlight of the Vertical Farming Market Report:

In the vertical agriculture market, hydroponics is expected to have the maximum market share during the projected period. Plants grow faster in a hydroponic system because the nutrient solution can be adjusted to create the best growing conditions, which helps drive the market.

In the vertical farming market, shipping container-based vertical farming is expected to dominate the market share during the forecast period. Shipping container farms are small, compact and easy to transport by truck or rail. This means they can be used in both rural and urban settings (provided zoning laws allow it). Container farms use approximately 90% less water than a typical 4-acre land farm because they recycle their water, which helps market growth.

In the vertical farming market, the indoor segment is expected to have the maximum market share during the forecast period. Indoor farming regulates the nutrients in plant fertilizers, resulting in highly nutritious foods. As a result, it is expected to have the largest share of the vertical farming market during the forecast period.
