Vertical Farming Market Growth is Impacted by the Shift of Population from Rural to Urban Areas

Vertical farming can be done by various mechanisms, such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics. Hydroponics helps plants grow in water, aeroponics helps grow plants suspended in air.
FREMONT, Calif. - Nov. 8, 2021 - PRLog -- With the exponential growth of the global population, the subsequent increase in global food demand, the decrease in agricultural land, and the depletion of limited natural resources, the need to improve agricultural yield has become critical. The upsurge in the urban population in developing countries, with improved quality of living due to high-income levels and the demand for fresh farm produce and animal protein, is bolstering the demand for crop production. The finite presence of natural resources, such as arable land and fresh water, along with falling farm yield trends in many crop categories, have encouraged crop producers and agricultural companies to introduce innovative and advanced agriculture alternatives to boost farm profitability.

Read Report Overview:

The global vertical farming market is anticipated to progress to a great extent since its initiation as a basic system to being an ideal solution for sustainable agriculture. Vertical farming is used to produce various vegetables and fruits on vertically inclined surfaces. Unlike conventional farming of vegetables and other fruits on a single level, such as in a field or a greenhouse, the vertical farming method produces foods in vertically stacked layers generally incorporated into structures such as a shipping container, repurposed warehouse, and skyscraper. Vertical farming involves the integration of numerous technologies such as big data analytics, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and the internet of things (IoT) so that crops can be produced perfectly without any agronomic constraint.

Vertical farming offers various opportunities, such as demand from countries with less arable land and unfavorable climate and integration of technology with vertical farming. Further, challenges hindering the growth of the global vertical farming market include the need for constant monitoring, high operational and maintenance cost, and not being suitable for all types of crops.
