Hydroponics Market: Trends and Developments

The hydroponics market size is estimated to account for a value of USD 9.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR 11.9% from 2020, to reach a value of USD 16.6 billion by 2025. Factors such as the higher yield as compared to conventional agriculture practices, controlled environment farming, and improved yield and higher produce with limited land resources, are some of the key factors driving the growth of the hydroponics market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Hydroponics Market

Amid the spread of Covid-19 pandemic, many individuals have developed a critical point of view towards outdoor food. With health and food safety becoming the key focus, the populations around the globe have showed an inclination towards home cooking and self-made/homemade meals. This has put the food and hotel industry into jeopardy. After the devastating outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, the adoption rate of urban hydroponic farming systems around the world are estimated to rise sharply. The agriculture industry faced challenges during the initial phases of the spread of the pandemic. There were huge labour shortages on the farm, some farmers missed their window of opportunity for harvesting for seasonal crops, the falling prices of agricultural products and the disruption of logistics. Many countries also realized their over dependence on imports of food materials and hence began emphasizing on internal and domestic productions.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Higher yield as compared to conventional agriculture practices, emphasized even more after the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the UN reports on global population, plants grown in hydroponic systems have achieved 20%–25% higher yield than the traditional agriculture system, with its productivity being 2–5 times higher. Also, owing to controlled environmental conditions, the effect of climatic changes can be balanced with the help of these systems, thereby not affecting the annual crop production. CEH techniques directly affect the crop harvest cycle. Since climatic changes show a minimal effect on such systems, crops can be produced all year round, thereby again increasing the produce.

Restraint: High capital investment for large-scale farms

Different types of equipment including HVAC systems, fans, ventilation, irrigation systems, control systems, rails, and lights are the key cost factors in a hydroponic farm. On average, a 500 sq. ft. hydroponic farm can cost up to USD 110,000 for a base level system that is not fully automated. This huge cost for the initial set up of the system is a major factor refraining farmers from investing in these systems. However, the yield obtained from these systems are higher, and the produce can also be marketed as premium products, thereby raising the ROI for growers.

Opportunity: Development of innovative hydroponic technologies

With the increased adoption of hydroponics globally, manufacturers and researchers are working on improving the efficiency of hydroponics technology to increase the quality and quantity of the produce. Many companies in the market are investing heavily into R&D for obtaining state-of-art technologies that boost he porductions asnd also brong about variety of ciultivations possible. Startegic partnerships with research labs and institutes further drive the growth of the market.

Challenge: Spread of waterborne diseases and algae in closed systems

In a closed hydroponic system, the threat of waterborne diseases poses a major problem to growers. Considering that the nutrient-enriched water is recirculated throughout the system, any kind of waterborne disease that enters the nutrient reservoir often affects the whole crop as it has the capability to spread throughout. Growers often keep their plants spaced out to prevent crowding, which is often how pathogens enter the system. To combat the instances of waterborne diseases, growers are resorting to using screen or paper filters and additional filtration systems to curb the spread of waterborne diseases in the system.
