Global Smart Greenhouse Market worth to gain $1.31Bn by 2022, according to new statistics released by the Zion Market Research, the market research group.
The smart greenhouse is a glasshouse or a hothouse in which plants are developed under artificial environment. Its construction involves solar radiations and favorable environment for growing plants. It is a major revolution in the agriculture industry and the new trend in farming technique. Rising global population and advancement in technology are replacing traditional agriculture techniques with automated urban farming methods like the smart greenhouse.
Smart greenhouse market is primarily driven by increasing the need for smart farming techniques to fulfill the demand of energy efficiency from customers. In addition, rooftop farming in unbans regions is expected to propel the market growth during the year to come. However, high initial cost of automation may hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, rising need of smart greenhouse with technological development for energy efficiency will help to open up new opportunities for smart greenhouse market.
Based on the type, global smart greenhouse market is segmented into hydroponic and non-hydroponic. In 2016, a non-hydroponic segment dominated the smart greenhouse market and expected to maintain its dominance during coming years.
Based on technology, smart greenhouse market has been segmented into HVAC, LED grow light, communication technology, irrigation system, material handling, valves & pumps, control system, and others. LED grow light segment was leading technology segment of smart greenhouse market and accounted for the largest market share in 2016 as it helps to control temperature. Growing construction activities in emerging economies are expected to drive the smart greenhouse market over the forecast period. Increasing need for lifelong and energy-efficient lighting technology is expected to boost market growth in the forecast period.
Europe accounted for largest share of the smart greenhouse market in 2016. It accounted for significant share of the market due to the high demand of food from Germany, UK, and France. Europe was followed by Asia Pacific. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in coming years due to the increasing population in the region.
