The rate of conservation and recycling of natural resources in vertical farming is another factor that will contribute to the vertical farming market growth. The majority of the water used in traditional farming is lost due to evaporation or runoffs. On the other hand, vertical farms need less water than traditional farms and most of the water is recycled back, thus reducing the usage of water by almost 90%. Vertical farming also reduces dependency on fertilizers & pesticides and needs less soil than conventional farming. However, high capital requirement, energy consumption, limitations on crop variety, and the lack of awareness may restrict the market penetration in agriculture industry.

Lower installation cost & easy operations will drive the demand for hydroponics

Hydroponics technology segment held around 50% vertical farming market share in 2020. The growing conditions in hydroponics technology can be consistently monitored and controlled to ensure correct chemical composition for effective growth. It utilizes less water compared to traditional farming techniques. This technology does not use soil, thus eliminating weeds, pests, etc. and subsequently cutting down labor costs. Furthermore, there are no limitations on setting up a hydroponics system on rural agricultural land. This will subsequently improve its accessibility and eliminate the need for a complex distribution network.
