Market segmentation of global vertical agriculture market

Mechanism: Vertical agriculture can be achieved by various mechanisms, such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics. Hydroponics helps plants grow in water, aeroponics helps grow airborne plants, and aquaponics is an exceptional combination of hydroponics and fish farming in an integrated system. Both water and fish are needed to grow plants.

The hydroponics segment is the largest in the global vertical farming market. Hydroponic farms optimize plant growth, offer fresh local produce, and minimize the use of water, space, transportation, and pesticides. Additionally, hydroponics can be used in a greenhouse using natural light and, more often than not, using LED lights to save space. Due to such a wide range of benefits offered by hydroponics, its demand is increasing across the world.

Product: There is a wide range of products (components) used in vertical agriculture, including lighting devices, hydroponics components, air conditioning devices, sensing devices and others. The demand for lighting devices is expected to experience positive growth in developed and developing countries. This growth is mainly due to the benefits of lighting devices such as the propagation of young plants, the cultivation of healthier crops and crops without pesticides. In addition, crop production can be increased by using vertical farm lighting to illuminate multiple layers of crops, resulting in higher yield with a smaller footprint.

Region: The North America The region is expected to dominate the global vertical agriculture market during the forecast period. The strong agricultural growth in this region, along with the increased focus on smart agriculture and digitization in agriculture, is expected to boost the development of vertical agriculture in the region.

The United States is a major player in the North America vertical agricultural market. The United States is dominated by major vertical farming players including AeroFarms, Plenty Unlimited Inc., Bowery Farming, Gotham Greens, among others. The country has witnessed the production of a wide range of green vegetables, such as kale, arugula, lettuce and pak choi. In 2019, there were more than 2,000 vertical farms in the United States, with 60% of the market held by small and medium-sized businesses.
