Driving Factors

Indoor farming is the development of food crops in a controlled environment, allowing for year-round production of high-yielding crops. Farmers have turned to indoor farming as a result of increased food demand and declining agricultural yield. The decline in agricultural productivity is mostly due to shrinking productive land, bad meteorological conditions, and constraints on the use of natural resources. Furthermore, the emergence of technical breakthroughs in indoor farming, such as the proliferation of information technology in vertical farming and greenhouses, encourages farmers to adopt farming, which will indirectly promote the growth of the global microgreens market throughout the projection period. Moreover, Consumers are increasingly focusing on accepting high-nutritional-value agricultural foods. They are prepared to spend a premium on fresh and organic products to lower their risk of cardiovascular illness, heart disease, and cancer. Furthermore, many people are choosing a vegan diet and looking for the finest plant-based alternatives to suit their nutritional demands. This is projected to drive market growth.

Farmers must make a significant initial investment in gadgets, equipment, and other essentials to begin indoor farming.
