Hydroponics Leads the Vertical Farming Market Due to Easy Scale Up and Lower Setup Costs

Hydroponics occupies the largest growth mechanism in the vertical farming market due to its relatively low set-up costs, ease of operation, and widely available technology. It requires less maintenance and is also easier to scale up. Hydroponics growth mechanism provides food production throughout the year unaffected by environmental conditions.

Aeroponics Is the Fastest-Growing Segment Since they Offer a High Return on Investment

Aeroponics is an emerging growth mechanism, and it is the fastest-growing segment of the vertical farming market. It has higher yield potential and reuses significantly more water. Aeroponics demands less space, so it becomes more appropriate for vertical farming operations. Setting up the aeroponics method is costlier, compared to hydroponics; however, with higher yields, the return on investment is potentially higher.

North America Is the Leading Market, Mainly Due to the Increasing Agriculture Production in the Region

North America is the biggest geographical region in the vertical farming market for agriculture. This is because the US is the largest producer of agriculture across the globe. Advanced technologies and innovative methods of farming have made the region very potent in crop production. The techniques of precision agriculture have increased production and decreased operational costs within the region. Besides, the existence of an established distribution network and infrastructure in the region makes it easy to transport and market crops.
