The increasing use of such cultivation techniques by the vertical farmers is expected to boost the demand for fresh produce from vertical farms over the forecast period. However, high initial investments in vertical farms and lack of adoption from top agricultural output countries, such as Russia, India, Brazil, and Ukraine, are some of the restraining factors in the market.

According to the World Bank Group, the global arable land per capita has declined from 0.197 hectares in 2013 to 0.192 hectares in 2016. The scarcity of arable land owing to land degradation has urged the farmers to adopt new solutions to produce fresh food. Thus, many farmers have shifted to the modern indoor cultivation methods, wherein the crops are stacked in layers inside buildings, shipping containers, and warehouses. Such indoor vertical farms enable the expansion of the total plantation area using the stacked layers of potted seeds. Furthermore, as the crops are grown in a contained environment, farmers can grow various vegetables that cannot be grown outside due to unfavorable conditions, which are anticipated to drive the market growth in regions such as the Middle East and Africa.
North America dominated the market for vertical farming produce in 2019 with a revenue share of more than 33% and is estimated to continue leading over the forecast period. The emerging presence of numerous vertical farming companies in the U.S., such as AeroFarms, Bowery Farming Inc., and Gotham Greens is the major growth driver. These companies provide various types of fresh produce, including leafy greens such as head lettuce, romaine lettuce, arugula, spinach, kale, and other crops such as tomatoes and cucumbers, peppers, basil, and so on. The Middle East market is estimated to witness a high CAGR on account of regional expansions from established players and new vertical farm projects in the region. Companies, such as AeroFarms, Madar Farms, and Badia Farms, are actively investing in existing and new facilities to cater to the rising regional demand for vertical farm produce.
