Introduction of the US Vertical Farming Market

Vertical farming is the procedure of growing food on any vertically inclined surface. This method provides food in vertically assembled layers incorporated on other structures such as repurposed warehouses or shipping containers. The farming employs a combination of natural and artificial light, which is LED-based, driven by renewable sources like power or wind turbine. The market covers several growth processes which include Hydroponics, Aquaponics, and Aeroponics.

Key Players of Market:

  • Freight Farms
  • Aero Farms
  • Green Sense Farms Holdings Inc.
  • Green Spirit Farms
  • Altius Farms
  • Plenty Unlimited Inc.
  • Bowery Farming Inc.

United States Vertical Farming Market Dynamics

LED lights are highly economical and assist in reducing the farming cost incurred by farmers. Additionally, the rising consciousness concerned with enormous advantages provided by this farming method, such as less vulnerability to diseases and chemicals, no influence of altering weather conditions, less water usage, and larger yield from less cultivable land, will promote the US Vertical Farming Market Share.

Besides this, the aggrandizing production of biopharmaceutical items and increasing demand for natural products as a result of the growing incidences of health diseases will persuade individuals to choose healthier food. Moreover, vertical farming helps to reduce carbon emissions because of its greater contiguity to the customers.  The country is regarded as the biggest market for hydroponic systems, primarily in North America.
