Expanding global population and the rising demand for a variety of foods and crops is necessitating focus on alternative farming conditions as supplements to traditional cultivation. Declining availability of arable land worldwide and the rising need for food security are fueling growth in the vertical farming market. The continuous decline in farmland is attributed to factors such as growing climatic changes, random metrological and geological events such as tornadoes, hailstorms, floods, and droughts. Vertical farming techniques minimize the dependence on prevailing climatic conditions and allow optimum use of arable land. The technique is increasingly being adopted worldwide in a bid to prevent damage of crops from natural calamities and other unpredictable changes in an area. Vertical farming method has the ability to address food security concerns such as utilization, stability, accessibility, and availability. Also with ground water levels getting depleted and climatic change having severe impact on agricultural activities, there is growing emphasis on alternatives to traditional farming methods. Population growth and the ever-widening gap between demand and supply of food is the main reason for vertical farming gaining prominence over traditional agriculture. Vertical farming provides a solution to the issue as crops can be grown in limited spaces, and such cultivation will not rely on the environment or climatic conditions ensuring a continuous supply of food. Driven by numerous benefits such as low consumption of agrochemicals and water, low dependence on fertility of soil and human labor, vertical farming has emerged to be a lucrative farming technique in recent years. The market is also driven by the rising consumer demand for clean and organic food that is free from pesticides and GMOs. Rising incidence of heart diseases, obesity and other life-threatening diseases is also driving consumers to seek healthier options, thus presenting opportunities for growth.
