Global Vertical Farming Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

The global vertical farming market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 34 billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~26% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 5 billion in the year 2022. The considerable decline in arable land in many parts of the world is the primary factor driving the growth of the global vertical farming market. For instance, it was observed that the total arable land in China in 2019 was about 7% less compared to the total amount just a decade before.






Several factors cause the decline of arable lands, including population growth, land degradation, climate change, deforestation, urban sprawl, and more. Vertical farms conserve both land and operating room by using space vertically with layers of crops stacked one on the other.

Global Vertical Farming Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rapid Growth of Urbanization – It is estimated that the total urban population in the world should surpass 5 billion by 2045. Industrialization, social benefits and services, commercialization, employment opportunities, change in the mode of living, and modernization are the main factors leading to the growth of urbanization. Most of the vertical farms are established in and around urban areas, with the urban population constituting the primary consumers of the farm produce. This localization of farms also minimizes transportation needs and thus greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

  • High Demand for Organic Food Produces – In 2020, up to 5% of the total food sales in the United States (U.S.) was comprised of sales of organic food.  

  • Rapid Increase in the Number of Health-Conscious Customers – As of 2022, between 24 and 31% of all grocery customers in the U.S. and Europe should be categorized as health-conscious customers.

  • Rapid Growth in Agricultural Waste – The annual amount of agricultural waste produced in Russia is estimated to reach up to 651 million tons.


  • Requirement for Large Initial Investments

  • Lack of Practical Knowledge of Farming Methods Among Farmers

  • Delay in the Manufacturing and Supply of Electronics Needed in Vertical Farming as a Result of COVID-19

The global vertical farming market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by growth mechanism into hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. Of these, the hydroponics segment is anticipated to hold the largest market by the end of 2033. Water conservation is the main factor driving segment growth. It is estimated that plants should grow successfully in the hydroponic method by utilizing around 85% less water than in traditional soil cultivation. Other factors contributing to the segment growth include scalable initial investments, high profitability, and the little use of soil.
