Key Trends and Analysis of the Hydroponics Market:
Among equipment type, the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) equipment type segment held a dominant position in 2016, followed by LED lights and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. This is owing attributes of HVAC as the major elements to create a controlled environment for hydroponic cultivation and high adoption of these systems for basic usage in hydroponics.
Among system types, the aggregate hydroponic system segment accounted for the highest market share in 2016. This is owing to its ability to support roots, unlike liquid hydroponic systems that offer no supporting medium for the plant roots. The tomato crop type segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016, owing to its ability to extend and control the production of crops coupled with extending supply of natural sugars and other components used by plants.
