Hydroponics-based vertical farming is expected to be the most popular farming method among growers by 2026
Hydroponics is a widely used vertical farming methods among growers in which the roots of the plants are provided with nutrient-dissolved solutions through water channels equipped with the pump and irrigation systems, according to the grower’s needs. Number of advantages associated with hydroponics-based vertical farming including higher returns on investment, low initial setup cost, and less complex setup process than the other mechanisms are among major factors driving the market growth. Hydroponics systems are used both indoors and outdoors for growing herbs, foliage, and food items throughout the year using an inert growth medium to anchor the plant’s roots. One of the major advantages of using this mechanism is less water requirement as the system reuses the water.

Emerging vertical farm solutions for small farmers to drive demand for shipping container-based vertical farms
The market for shipping container-based vertical farms is likely to register a higher CAGR due to ease of installation and mobility. Shipping container-based farms use 40 ft. containers that are refurbished by several companies into self-contained vertical farms. These containers feature innovative climate technology and growth equipment, along with a suitable environment throughout the year for low- or medium-volume and consistent harvest, irrespective of different climatic conditions. In shipping container-based vertical farms, LEDs, drip-irrigation systems, and vertically stacked shelves are installed to grow a variety of plants. These self-contained units have computer-controlled growth management systems that allow users to monitor all the systems remotely with the help of a smartphone or a computer. Freight Farms (US), GrowPod Solutions (US), and Agricool (France) are some of the key players in shipping container-based vertical farming.

Increasing adoption of LED lighting systems in vertical farms due to design flexibility for small to large vertical farms and maximizing the growth of crop yield and quality

Vertical farming highly depends on artificial lights. Artificial light acts as a substitute for sunlight and provides sufficient light intensities that enable crop growth. The amount and duration of the light are the main aspects considered while providing lighting for plants. In recent times, LED lighting has become the most preferred grow lights in vertical farming. Signify (Netherlands), Osram (Germany), Everlight Electronics (Taiwan), Heliospectra AB (Sweden), and Valoya (Finland) are some of the key players in the vertical farming market, offering a wide range of lighting products and systems. Signify (Netherlands) offers Green power LED production modules; these LED lights help optimize growth systems for crop cultivation all year round.

Asia Pacific likely to witness highest growth in the vertical farming market by 2026 due to the rapidly growing population
The concept of vertical farming in Asia Pacific is growing rapidly due to the increasing urban population and decreasing agricultural land. The region is investing a significant amount in developing vertical farming systems to feed its urban population. Countries such as China, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Japan are technologically equipped which is complementing the growth opportunities for the vertical farming market in Asia pacific region. Singapore in Asia Pacific region is a key market for vertical farming due to factors such as government-sponsored industrial parks, which allow companies to build their businesses on the island, and the availability of reliable and affordable energy supplemented with renewable resources. The Singapore government is keen to improve food production in the country; hence, it is funding different production facilities. For instance, the Agriculture Productivity Fund, a government food agency, supports local farmers by providing them funds to expand production capability and raise efficiency.
