Vertical Farming Market was valued at $1.47 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $8.03 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 20.7% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. In 2016, the lighting segment generated the highest revenue share in the global vertical farming market.

The production of crops by using vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and other integrated structures such as skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container is called vertical farming. The present-day ideas of vertical farming utilize indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology, where all environmental features can be controlled and directed. These facilities utilize artificial control of light, environmental control (including humidity and temperature) and fertigation. Some vertical farms use techniques analogous to greenhouses, where natural sunlight can be amplified with artificial lighting and metal reflectors.

Vertical Farming Market Determinants
Constantly rising popularity of organic foods, surging urban population and limited availability of arable land for traditional agriculture are some major influencing factors which are motivating the growth of vertical farming market. In addition to this, people are now shifting from conventional agricultural methods to modern and sustainable ways to fill the increasing demand-supply gap. On the other hand, high initial investments and lack of technical knowledge are some major impeding factors, hampering the growth of the market. In addition to this, lack of awareness among farmers regarding operational and technological benefits of complete vertical farming method also acts as one of the major hampering agent for the market. However, continuous development in the field farming technology are anticipated to bring future opportunities for the market.
