Japan Commercial Greenhouse Market Size, Share | Insights Forecasts to 2030

Industry: Agriculture


The Japan Commercial Greenhouse Market Size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period, 2022 to 2030.  


Market Statistics 

The commercial greenhouse market in Japan is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Japan is a country with a low agricultural area and a high population density. As a result, the country is heavily reliant on horticulture and greenhouse practices to maximize agricultural output. Commercial greenhouses' ability to produce more yield than traditional farming techniques, combined with a decrease in arable land per capita, is propelling the Japan Commercial Greenhouse Market forward.


Market Overview

In a commercial greenhouse, consumers can grow vegetables, fruits, flowers, and transplants for planting in an extremely stable and controlled environment. This enables greenhouse plants to produce continuously despite local temperature, soil, or terrain constraints. Modern agricultural technology, techniques, and knowledge have benefited farms of all sizes, economic levels, and agro-ecological zones. Commercial housing is the new way of farming that produces higher yields. The two types of greenhouses that are commercially used in Japan are the glass greenhouse and the plastic greenhouse. Glass or plastic roofs and glass or plastic walls are common covering materials for commercial greenhouses. It is a new application with a high growth potential that makes use of a variety of technologies such as heating systems, cooling systems, ventilation systems, LED grow lights, communication technology, irrigation systems, and control systems. Heating is used to keep the greenhouse at the proper humidity level and temperature for crop development. Japan's heating system in the commercial greenhouse market is rapidly expanding and playing an important role in future food security. Japan's demand for fresh fruits and vegetables is increasing every year. Greenhouses, which consistently supply favorable temperatures, heat, light, and other atmospheric conditions, aid in the development of many fruit and vegetable crops. Commercial greenhouses enable farmers to produce more fruits and vegetables of higher quality and quantity.

The report strategically identifies and profiles the key market players and analyses their core competencies in each sub-segments of the Japan Commercial Greenhouse Market.


Driving Factors

Rapid urbanization, which has accelerated the adoption of modern farming techniques, and the rising population, which has led to an increase in food demand are the primary drivers of Japan’s commercial greenhouse market growth.  Furthermore, factors such as Japan’s arable land decline, which is causing a shift to 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. To produce the same number of crops, greenhouse farming uses 95% less water than outdoor farming.


Restraining Factors

Rice, sugarcane, and wheat require a large amount of water and a longer harvesting time than other crops, making them difficult to cultivate using greenhouse farming. Greenhouse farming can only grow a limited number of crops, making it an unappealing option for many farmers. These factors may hamper the market growth of commercial greenhouses during the study period.


Japan Commercial Greenhouse Market Segment Analysis

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

On the basis of type, the Japan commercial greenhouse market is differentiated into glass greenhouses and plastic greenhouses. The plastic segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the projected period. The reason for the segmental growth is that one of the primary advantages of a plastic greenhouse over a glass greenhouse is its low installation cost. Plastic greenhouses are differentiated into three sub-segments: polyethylene, polycarbonate, and polymethyl-methacrylate.


Based on the application, the Japan commercial greenhouse market is classified into fruits and vegetables, flowers, and ornamentals, nursery crops, and others. The fruits and vegetables segment is expected to hold a significant share during the projected period. Increased greenhouse cultivation of commonly grown fruits and vegetables is driving segmental growth.


On the basis of equipment, the Japan commercial greenhouse market is segmented into hardware, software, and services.  Among these, the hardware segment holds the significant market over the study period. The segmental growth is attributed due to the increased requirement of hardware to maintain a suitable environment in greenhouse farming. The hardware segment plays an important role to maintain the environment in greenhouses.
