Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Hydroponic is an advanced technology that involves growing of plants without soil. Hydroponic gardens offer all the nutrients to the plant without involving soil, sunlight, and extra labor. It involves the growth of plants in water. All the essential nutrients are dissolved in the water and supplied to the plant on a regular basis for proper development. Hydroponically grown vegetables are high quality and require very little washing.
The global hydroponic vegetables market is projected to reach around US$ 13,731.5 million by the end of 2027, in terms of revenue, growing at CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period (2020-2027).
Growing demand for locally or regionally produced vegetables is primarily fueling the market growth of hydroponic vegetables. Rising demand for fresh and organic food products due to increasing awareness regarding the health benefits of organic food products. Moreover, growing demand for the clean label with natural ingredients is also expected to foster the market growth of the hydroponic vegetables over the forecast timeframe.
Rising prevalence of soil-borne disease caused due to microorganisms present in the soil is expected to foster the market growth of hydroponic vegetable. These microorganisms cause damages to the root of the plant and lead to the death of the plant. Moreover, the consumption of contaminated or diseased plants may lead to various health issues and in these cases, hydroponic plants are suitable alternative in order to prevent soil-borne disease. Thus, growing soil-borne disease is expected to augment the market growth of the hydroponic plant.
Figure 1. Global Hydroponic Vegetables Market Share (%) in terms of Value, By Region, in 2019
Europe region dominated the global hydroponic vegetables market in 2019, accounting for 53.8% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Asia Pacific, respectively.
High energy consumption as compared to traditional farming is expected to restraint the market growth of the hydroponic vegetable. Traditional farming completely depends on direct sunlight and involves a simple irrigation system whereas hydroponic cultivation requires artificial temperature and lightening controls, this is increasing overall energy costs thus hindering the market growth.
