  • The global demand for Indoor Farming Technology is increasing significantly owing to increasing demand for fresh foods along with high nutrition value.
  • High initial investment requires for indoor farming technology is acting as a challenge in the market.
  • Detailed analysis on the Strength, Weakness and Opportunities of the prominent players operating in the market will be provided in the indoor farming technology Market report.

By Growing System – Segment Analysis

Based on Growing System, the hydroponics segment registered for the highest revenue in 2019 and is estimated to grow at highest CAGR over the forecast years (2020-2025). The application of hydroponics growth mechanism provides ample fresh produce and helps to mitigate most of the risks of shortage of food production owing to exposure to climatic changes, soil contamination, limited space in urban areas and most importantly, low availability of water.

By Crop Type – Segment Analysis

The global Indoor Farming Technology market based on Mode of Operation, can be further segmented into Fruits & Vegetables, Herbs & Microgreens, Flower & Ornamentals, and others. The Fruits & Vegetables segment registered for highest revenue in 2019 and projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025 owing to the increasing demand for fresh and green vegetables and fruits produced in city environments with minimum space and less water utilization.

By Geography – Segment Analysis

North America registered for the highest revenue in 2019 and is set to grow at highest CAGR over the forecast period (2020-2025) owing to the increased focus on implementing innovative and efficient technologies to enhance the yields. Besides North America, Europe is estimated to grow its demand during the forecast period 2020-2025 owing to the high adoption of precision farming in the region.

Drivers – Indoor Farming Technology Market 

  • Rise in Demand  

The global demand for Indoor Farming Technology is increasing significantly owing to the rise in demand for food globally and increasing push from government for the adoption of alternative agricultural practices. Besides, Indoor-farming technologies allows farmers to have control over the environment which result in lower loss of crops as compared to that in case of conventional farming, which enhance the growth of indoor farming technology market.

Challenges – Indoor Farming Technology Market

  • High initial investment

The high initial investments for setting up the indoor farming technology is acting as a challenge for the growth of the market. The other major restraining factor for the growth of the Indoor Farming Technology market is the limitations on the type of crops.
