Global Indoor Farming Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global indoor farming market was worth USD 15.7 billion in 2021 and is further projected to reach USD 30.8 billion by the year 2028, growing at the CAGR of 10.20% in the forecast period. The indoor farming technology is gaining huge popularity owing to the huge burden of deforestation due to agricultural lands along with the scarcity of land and resources due to the surging population. Furthermore, the increasing integration of high-tech technologies such as farming sensors is also influencing the growth of the global indoor farming market.

Indoor Farming Market

Indoor Farming - Overview

The practice of indoor farming refers to the cultivation of crops on a large scale in an indoor environment, unlike the conventional land agricultural method. This type of farming technique involves methods such as hydroponics and utilizes artificial light to supply nutrients and light to the crops and plants to their required levels. A wide variety of plants such as fruits, vegetables, and herbs are most commonly grown with indoor farming techniques.

Global Indoor Farming Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Global Population And Demand For Food

According to a report published on Forbes, the global population is projected to reach 9.7 billion by the year 2050. With the rising population, the demand for food will also surge and so will burden on the land for agriculture. To tackle the scarcity of resources and the need for further deforestation for agriculture land, indoor farming is emerging as an effective solution. Indoor farming is also able to tackle with challenges such as drought or flood that harms crops. Due to these factors, the market is suggested to flourish during the forecast period.

Rising Public-Private Investment In Indoor Farming

The indoor farming technology is gaining huge popularity as well as investment from both public and private players, which is anticipated to emerge as a major driving factor for the global indoor farming market. According to the data by Crunchbase, the investors poured over USD 1.4 billion into the indoor and vertical farming companies. Startups such as Bowery Farming, Plenty, Upward Farms, 80 Acres Farms, etc., are flourishing because of these investments, which is estimated to drive the overall global indoor farming market growth.

Restraints

High Initial Investment Involved in Indoor Farming Setup

Indoor farming provide long term benefits due to which it is gaining popularity. However, the high initial investment involved in indoor farming setup acts as a major restraining factor for the market growth. Indoor farming is expensive due to the involvement of high-tech components such as controlled-entry clean rooms, machinery for planting, etc. Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies including automation, robotics, machine learning, etc., further adds up the cost.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Indoor Farming Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak brought tremendous growth opportunities for the global indoor farming market. Although the market was negatively impacted by the pandemic during the initial period since the infrastructure development for indoor farming was halted and the supply of hardware components was hindered. However, the increasing health consciousness among consumers along with declining dependence of imported food items by the countries post the import-export restrictions globally is offering lucrative growth opportunities to the global indoor farming market.

Global Indoor Farming Market - By Growing System

Based on growing systems, the global indoor farming market is segmented into aeroponics, hydroponics, aquaponics, and soil-based, hybrid. The aeroponics segment holds the largest market share owing to its benefits in farming. Aeroponics involves the practice of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of any substrate and therefore allows maximum nutrient absorption for plants' roots due to no growing medium, according to Trees.com, which is driving its market growth.

Global Indoor Farming Market - By Facility Type

Based on facility type, the global indoor farming market is segmented into glass or poly greenhouses, indoor vertical farms, container farms, and indoor deep-water culture (DWC) systems. The indoor vertical farms account for the largest market share owing to the high productivity in terms of the area along with shorter growing time, lower water use, as well as fresh produce is grown much closer to where it is consumed, according to the World Economic Forum.

Global Indoor Farming Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global indoor farming market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Europe dominates the global indoor farming market owing to the high penetration and investment towards high-end technologies such as Controlled Environment Agriculture, sensors, use of LEDs for lightening, etc. Furthermore, favorable government initiatives such as subsidies to the indoor farming components and infrastructures also play a crucial role in propelling the growth of the market in the European regions.

Competitive Landscape

The leading market players of the global indoor farming market are AeroFarms, Sky Greens, BrightFarms Inc., Green Sense Farms LLC, BrightFarms Inc., Village Farms International Inc., Bowery Inc., Garden Fresh Farms, FreshBox Farms, Metropolis Farms Inc., Everlight Electronics, Argus Control Systems, Grobo, Signify Holding, VitaLink, Hydrodynamics International, Emerald Harvest, Advanced Nutrients, General Hydroponics, Hydroponics System International, Heliospectra AB, Vertical Farm Systems, Richel Group, and other prominent players.

The global indoor farming market is fragmented with the presence of several regional companies and startups. The market is still emerging due to which it is welcoming towards new entrants. The companies are significantly focusing on market expansion by investing in the establishment of greenhouses and other infrastructure. Furthermore, the adoption of competitive strategies such as partnerships, mergers, acquisitions, collaborations, etc., is also prominent in this market.
