The Global Commercial Greenhouse Market is anticipated to reach USD 69.27 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.39% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The Commercial Greenhouse Market is expected to grow significantly in the forecasting period, due to the ability of commercial greenhouses to produce more than traditional farming techniques and the decrease in arable land per capita is propelling the global Commercial Greenhouse Market forward.


Market Overview

Consumers can cultivate fruits, vegetables, flowers, and transplants for planting in a commercial greenhouse, which provides an extremely stable and controlled environment. This allows greenhouse plants to produce continuously regardless of local temperature, soil, or terrain constraints. Plants are typically mass-produced in commercial greenhouses for consumer consumption. Greenhouse farming provides farmers with a more suitable and controllable environment in which to grow their crops. Commercial greenhouses have a variety of covering materials, such as glass or plastic roofs and glass or plastic walls. It has an emerging application with high growth potential and usage of various technologies such as heating systems, cooling systems, ventilation systems, LED grow lights, communication technology, irrigation systems, and control systems.


Rapid population growth on shrinking land, particularly in China and India, will drive the Asia-Pacific greenhouse market during the study period. One of the primary reasons for the expansion of greenhouse farming is that cultivable land is shrinking every year. As a result, the need to increase crop yield on available land in order to satisfy increasing food demand is boosting the commercial greenhouse farming market. Moreover, the emergence of urban populations in cities such as New York, Chicago, and Milwaukee have accelerated the environment for greenhouse farming.

Driving Factors

One of the primary advantages of greenhouse farming over traditional farming techniques is its higher yield. Enclosed facilities provide the best growth conditions for farmers to develop a crop from seed to harvesting stages in less time and with less land area. The primary drivers of growth are rapid urbanization, which has accelerated the adoption of modern farming techniques, and the rising population, which has led to an increase in food demand. Furthermore, factors such as the global decline in arable land, which is causing a shift towards indoor agricultural practices such as greenhouses, and government interventions such as export subsidies, tariffs or import levies, and direct payments to growers, among others, are boosting the market growth. Greenhouse farming consumes 95% less water than outdoor farming to produce the same number of crops. The transpiration process occurs when plants or commodities are grown in vertical greenhouses, allowing farmers to reuse the water for irrigation. Thus, the market's growth is expected to boost during the predicted period.


Restraining Factors

Rice, sugarcane, and wheat require a large amount of water as compared to other crop and a longer harvesting time, making them difficult to cultivate using greenhouse farming. Greenhouse farming is only suitable for a limited quantity of crops, making it an unappealing option for many growers. Before beginning a greenhouse plantation, numerous parameters such as adequate water supply management, temperature adjustment, identification and supply of nutrients to plants, growth mechanism to be used, and individual harvest time of plants must be considered. Fruits and vegetables are ideal for vertical farming because they require less time to grow, less water, and less sunlight. However, controlled-environment farming can only produce a few types of fruits and vegetables. Some fruits and vegetables, for example, have numerous edible parts such as leaves, stems, and roots. Vertical farming is not appropriate for these plant species.


Market Segmentation

The Global Commercial Greenhouse Market share is segmented into type, application, and equipment.

  •  The plastic greenhouse segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the study period.  

On the basis type, the global commercial greenhouse market is classified into glass greenhouses and plastic greenhouses. Among these, the plastic greenhouse segment is expected to dominate the market during the projected period. The reason behind the segmental growth is, the low installation cost is one of the primary advantages of a plastic greenhouse over a glass greenhouse. Polyethylene, polycarbonate, and polymethyl-methacrylate are the three sub-segments of plastic greenhouses.


During the forecast period, the glass greenhouse is also expected to grow at the fastest CAGR. Because of their weight, high durability, and strength, glass greenhouses are considered to be among the strongest of all greenhouse materials, providing significant years of service. The clarity of the glass, which can be maintained for years if cleaned regularly, is one of the main reasons for its popularity. Horticulture glass and others, such as float glass, tempered glass, laminated glass, and frosted glass, are included in the glass greenhouse segment.


  • The Fruits and vegetables segment witnessed the largest market in 2021 and is expected to dominate the market over the predicted period.

Based on the application, the global commercial greenhouse market is segmented into fruits and vegetables, flowers, and ornamentals, nursery crops, and others. Among these, the fruits and vegetables segment accounted for approximately 53% of the revenue share in 2021 and is anticipated to dominate the market during the projected period. The reason behind the growth is, the increased cultivation of commonly grown fruits and vegetables in greenhouses is driving the segmental growth. Furthermore, in a greenhouse, such vegetables are protected from harsh weather conditions such as wind, cold, drought, bugs, scorching heat, and animals attempting to consume them. Greenhouses provide the best-growing conditions for vegetables due to their ability to control moisture, light, temperature, fertilization, humidity, and irrigation.


  • In 2021, the hardware segment held the largest market share.

On the basis of equipment, the global commercial greenhouse market is differentiated into hardware, software, and services. Among these, the hardware segment held the market in 2021. The reason behind the growth is, farmers' increasing demand for hardware to maintain a suitable environment in greenhouse farming. Climate control systems are used to maintain a suitable environment. The hardware is important in maintaining the environment in greenhouses. Farmers are increasingly accepting smart agriculture and innovative technology.


During the study period, the software segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR. Greenhouse management software improves crop planning and tracking, allows the growing facility to be operated remotely, and reduces the need for manual intervention. Farmers can use management software to employ the most effective, environmentally friendly farming techniques.

Europe accounted for approximately 34.6% of revenue in 2021 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The region's growing population, combined with decreasing agricultural land availability, is a major factor driving the popularity of greenhouse farming. Traditional farming techniques may not be able to produce enough food to feed this massive population, so there is a growing need for technology-driven agriculture.


Asia Pacific is expected to grow fastest during the study period. Because of the rising population and the need to maintain food security through alternative high-yield farming techniques, the greenhouse market is expected to grow at a remarkable rate. Furthermore, many developing countries, including Singapore, Australia, Indonesia, and India, are implementing greenhouse farming techniques to improve their agricultural sectors, as greenhouse farming yields more than traditional farming. Asia Pacific is home to the majority of the major greenhouse agriculture countries, which include Japan, China, Taiwan, and South Korea.
