Global Vertical Farming Market to Reach USD 10.3 billion by 2026, Aided by the Rising Demand for Organic Food

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Vertical Farming Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global vertical farming market reached a value of about USD 3.1 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 21% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of around USD 10.3 billion by 2026.

The global vertical farming market is being driven by the robust demand for organic food among the health-consciousness. Increasing environmental issues, including the degradation of soil quality, and groundwater due to the implementation of chemical-based solutions, have increased the acceptance of the vertical farming method. The lowering of light emitting diode (LED) prices and the technical development of LEDs lead to the growth of the vertical farming market. The lack of space in densely populated countries has led to the growing adoption of the vertical farming system. The advantages of growing crops near urban areas and lower transport costs are expected to drive the growth of the vertical agricultural market over the forecast period.

The increased demand for vertical farming is encouraging the key players to make significant investments in the industry. In March 2020, an expansion of collaboration took place between Signify and Planet Farms, a vertical farm operator based in Italy, Europe. This agreement is expected to improve the quality and yield of crops with the aid of Philips GreenPower LED development (NYSE: PHG). This also enabled Planet Farms to grow and supply the finest aromatic herbs and lettuce to its consumers in Italy throughout the year. Signify also signed an agreement to provide LED horticultural lighting for the additional five vertical farms that Planet Farms plans to construct in different European countries in the forecast period, including Switzerland and the United Kingdom. This deal is most likely to boost the market demand for vertical farming further in the coming years.
