  • Indoor farming can be defined as the practice of growing produce stacked on top of each other in an enclosed and controlled environment. By using vertically mounted grow racks, the area required to grow plants is significantly reduced compared to traditional growing methods. This type of cultivation is often associated with city and urban farming due to its ability to thrive in limited spaces. It helps in reducing the usage of water, labour costs, occupational hazards, and chemical or pesticides.
  • The robust development in the indoor farming technology market is increasingly changing the customers’ perception of its utilization. Due to factors such as inappropriate supervision systems, automated farming tools, and strong support from government bodies, a large number of players are entering the indoor farming technology market.

Impact of COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, the production of fruits and vegetables, microgreens, ornamentals, and others under indoor farming was hindered up to a level that led to low revenue generation. This has further hampered the growth of the indoor farming technology market in 2020. However, the improved COVID-19 situation is expected to grow in the studied market during the forecast period. COVID-19 has also increased the demand for rapid pharmaceutical development, and vertical indoor farming can provide high-quality monoclonal antibodies, bioinks, vaccines, and other proteins efficiently and quickly. For instance, in March 2020, a start-up, iBio, announced that it was developing SARS-CoV-2 vaccine candidates by utilizing vertical indoor farming. This is further increasing the market size even further.
