Report Overview

Growing popularity and demand for organic food and vertical farming’s favorable characteristics, including requirement of less space to build, higher yield, and efficient energy utilization are expected to drive Saudi Arabia vertical farming market at a robust growth rate during the forecast period 2022 and 2028.

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market - Industry Trends & Forecast Report, 2028

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market size is expected to expand at an impressive CAGR of 26.7% during the forecast period between 2022 and 2028. Saudi Arabia vertical farming market expansion is driven by rising awareness of using innovative technology and equipment in agriculture. The rising use of modern technologies and equipment in farming techniques might be ascribed to the market expansion. Vertical farming is a sort of controlled-environment agriculture that makes soilless farming techniques, such as hydroponics and aeroponics. Farmers in a vertical farming arrangement can control temperature, nutrients, humidity, and light to improve crop quality and quantity while using less water and less space. The use of environment-friendly vertical farming is being aided by rapid urbanization and industrialization. Furthermore, during the period in analysis, the rising popularity of organic food and the shrinking amount of arable land for agriculture could contribute to the further expansion of Saudi Arabia vertical farming market.

Growth Drivers

Growing demand for food

The demand for food security measures is growing in Saudi Arabia because of the availability of superior healthcare services and the consumption of nutritious foods and beverages. Saudi Arabia has a sultry and arid climate with limited rainfall and relies heavily on fruit and vegetable imports from other countries. In the coming five years, demand for Saudi Arabia vertical farming could be fueled by the adoption of advanced farming techniques and equipment to enhance agriculture yield and properly utilize water resources.

Supportive government measures

Saudi Arabia's principal revenue-generating business is the oil and gas industry. The commitment of significant funding for the development of agriculture as a source of revenue other than the oil and gas industry could drive the country’s vertical farming market in the coming years. Saudi Arabia's agricultural business is growing due to the necessity to focus on food security and initiatives taken to promote agriculture and preserve water. The Ministry of Environment, Water, and Agriculture in Saudi Arabia emphasizes the importance of improving agriculture strategy and is working with local and international research institutions, as well as the commercial sector, to embrace cutting-edge technologies.

Restraints

Lack of workforce with expertise in vertical farming

Shortage of qualified and experienced workforce in vertical farming may limit the growth of vertical farming market in Saudi Arabia. In addition, significant initial capital investments could affect the expansion of Saudi Arabia vertical farming market. Marketing and distribution of vertical farm products could also pose a challenge for vertical farming companies in the country.

Impact of Covid–19 on Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market

COVID-19 had a significant impact on key economies in Middle East and Africa. Saudi Arabia government implemented a lockdown across the country, due to increasing infections. Work-from-home scenarios and social distancing norms have in a shrinking working force and a decline in revenue creation for big manufacturing units. The supply chain was also severely harmed throughout the Middle-East region. However, by the first quarter of 2021, market participants had resumed a faster manufacturing speed to stay competitive. In addition, Saudi Arabia market expansion is being fueled by a shift in consumer preferences and a rising demand for organic food.

Segmental Coverage

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market - By Growth Mechanism

Saudi Arabia vertical farming market by growth mechanism is segmented into hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. During the projected period, the hydroponics segment is expected to have the greatest market share. Plants grow in nutrient solutions that are devoid of dirt in hydroponics. This growth mechanism has several advantages, including a higher return on investment, ease of implementation, and affordability. As a result, commercial farmers are in high demand for it. In the agricultural process, the hydroponics segment uses water most efficiently and reduces water waste. The amount of nutrients supplied to the plants can be easily regulated by adjusting the size and growth of the plants. The hydroponics mechanism enables plant development even in the event of a power outage and provides needed nutrients and water to the plants on a continuous basis, which is the fundamental reason for its high consumer demand.

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market - By Structure

By structure, Saudi Arabia vertical farming market is split into two segments: Building-based Vertical Farms and Shipping Container-based Vertical Farms.

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market - By Crop

Based on crop, Saudi Arabia vertical farming market is segmented into: Tomato, Berries, Lettuce and Leady Vegetables, Pepper, Cucumber, and Others. Among them, the Tomato and the Lettuce and Leady Vegetables segments are major categories in Saudi Arabia vertical farming market, due to the increasing demand for tomato and lettuces from fast food chains across the country.

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming Market - By Application

Saudi Arabia Vertical Farming market is divided into indoor and outdoor segments based on application. During the period in analysis, the indoor segment is expected to have a higher market share. Traditional agricultural methods use a lot of water, whereas vertical indoor farming uses a lot less. The water that is left behind after the plants have used is reused in the water recycling process. Indoor farming, which uses automated technology to raise crops, reduces the need for manual labor. The falling cost of LED technology, which is critical in indoor vertical farming, is hastening the expansion of indoor vertical farms across the country. The availability of full spectrum LEDs, as well as the advent of LEDs with improved efficiency and longer lifespan, has aided the growth of a wide range of crops.
