Vertical Farming techniques control parameters like the amount of light, environmental factors like temperature, humidity, gases,., and fertigation factors which include application of fertilizers and other soil products. In some Vertical Farms, natural light is used in conjunction with artificial lighting and metal reflectors, similar to greenhouses.
Increasing consumer demand for organic foods, foods free from pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is the major driving force of the market. The utility of artificial lighting to enhance the yield, health and growth rate of plants coupled with lower dependency on weather for production is driving the market from the producer side.
The above factors accompanied by the growth in use of technology such as Internet of Things (IoT) in Vertical Farming, rapidly expanding populace and increase in the annual production of crops are predicted to exponentially boost market growth, which is reflected in the CAGR of more than 24%. High costs of lighting equipment and continuous maintenance requirement are the constraints faced by the Vertical Farming market.
