Vertical Farming Market: Demand for Nutrition a Key Driver

Food items can often lose nutrition during a long haul in transport. Despite the major advancements in logistics, food items as perishable goods also remain susceptible to bacteria infestation, damage to containers, and unreliable sourcing of original items. This has led to a growing movement in major economies like the US to source food from nearby places like the farmers market. Furthermore, agencies like the United States Agriculture Department (USDA) have also taken major initiatives to promote nutritious food, leading to rising demand of vertical farming market.

For example, in 2015, the food and nutrition assistance accounted for 73% of the USDA’s outlays. The uncertainty in food production due to erratic weather, growing dependence of many families on the USDA for nutritious food, and local programs like SNAP resulted in major expansion of the demand for nutritious recently in the vertical farming market.

Vertical Farming Market Growth – Key Developments

The vertical farming market remains an open landscape with robust opportunities for innovation. The vertical farming market is yet to witness the high investment from all quarters of the globe. The key technological advancements in the industry still largely come from robust R&D in North America, and Europe. However, contrary to conventional trends, key companies in North America, and Europe are outsourcing R&D in developing regions due to low-costs. The increased availability of skilled labor is also a key driver behind this burgeoning trend. Some major players like AeroFarms has decided to build a 90,000 square foot facility dedicated to R&D in Abu Dhabi. The facility is built as part of a partnership between Abu Dhabi Investment Office, and AeroFarms. The facility apart from R&D also focuses on offering a sustainable indoor agriculture for commercialization of local crops.

Vertical Farming Technology - Led Lighting a Boon for Vertical Farming Market Growth

LED lighting has been a game changer in vertical farming. This technology has changed the way plants grow, how commercial crops taste, when they flower, and even the level of nutrients among them. Furthermore, the lighting technology has also increased their shelf life, making commercialization an even better prospect.  Mike Zelkind, the CEO of 80 Acres farm believes this technology has enabled mass commercialization of vertical farming. 80 Acres Farm has opened its production in Cincinnati in 2016. Zelding says, the company has expanded to moe than 180,000  square feet in new locations, with opening of new facilities in Arkansas, North Carolina, and Alabama. Mike believes the LED lighting technology, its newfound efficiency, and promising cost reductions have been a boon for vertical farming.

Furthermore, lighting remains one the biggest operational expense for vertical farms. Some farms essentially use LED lighting to mimic the natural sunlight in indoor conditions. Hence, LED lighting isn’t just necessary for commercialization but its costs have a tremendous impact on the business models. It is estimated that LED lighting requirement can be as high as 100 watts of LED power per square meter. Furthermore, operation of LED bulbs for 13-18 hours is essential every day.

Vertical Farming Market – Notable Development

Signify Holding collaborated with RIAT in 2020 to grow the farm yield for tomatoes, and cucumbers. The collaboration led to a record yield, which delivered 19 types of green crops within an hour to stores after harvest. Furthermore, the collaboration also produced a 3.5 high plant indoors, a new record for the height of green plants. According to Bukharev, director at RIAT, the quality of product, and its proximity to local stores allowed them to sell 99% yield throughout the first year. Bukharev also notes that the high turnaround for their crops enabled them to be a profitable operation starting in the second year itself.  

Vertical farming technology can also be a boon for animal feed. As the costs of feed rises, and urbanization, and deforestation continue, the animal feeds have become a major source of worry for farmers globally. Grov Technologies, a vertical farming company tied up with Cnossen Dairy in drought affected West Texas recently. The tie-up will provide animal feed for 11,000 cows, residing in 7500 acres of farmland. The highly nutrient yield, and a year-round supply is highly essential for farm produce. The Grov Technologies will produce 288,000 pounds of supply in less than 5% of water supply needed on conventional farms. Moreover, the new food stock will be immune to the effects of climate change, making meat production, and dairy production reliable for farmers.
