Driving Factors

The phenomenal growth of vertical farming is having a long-term influence on the United Kingdom greenhouse sector. In response to this agricultural revolution, new types of greenhouses are being built that are specifically designed to support vertical farming. These cutting-edge structures feature unique designs and technology that maximize space usage and improve growing conditions, accelerating the adoption of this disruptive farming method. Furthermore, the introduction of vertical farming creates new possibilities and prospects for the greenhouse business. Vertical farming defies traditional restrictions, allowing for the production of a broader range of crops, including some that formerly required significant acreage or specific growing conditions. This achievement creates new opportunities and paves the path for a more diverse and sustainable agricultural environment.


Restraining Factors

Greenhouse production requires high initial expenses and sufficient resources. This is one of the most significant obstacles for entrepreneurs. Furthermore, profit margins are quite low for certain products, limiting market expansion.


Market Segment

  • In 2023, the plastic greenhouse segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the type, the United Kingdom greenhouse market is segmented into plastic greenhouses and glass greenhouses. Among these, the plastic greenhouse segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Plastic greenhouses have much-reduced construction and maintenance costs, making them an appealing choice for growers. This pricing is especially useful for those on tight budgets or looking to expand their company. Additionally, plastic greenhouses are quite durable. Their construction components, such as polyethene, polycarbonate, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), are extremely durable. This not only makes the working environment safer but also ensures that the greenhouse structure will last longer. In contrast, glass greenhouses are more likely to crack or break, necessitating frequent repairs and upkeep.


  • In 2023, the fruits & vegetables segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

On the basis of crop type, the United Kingdom greenhouse market is segmented into fruits & vegetables, flowers & ornamentals, and others. Among these, the fruits & vegetables segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Consumers increasing health consciousness is one of the primary elements driving the dominance of fruits and vegetables in the United Kingdom greenhouse market. With an increase in health consciousness, people are becoming more cognizant of their dietary choices and actively seeking out fresh, locally-grown produce over imported or processed alternatives. This change to better eating habits has not only increased demand for locally grown fruits and vegetables in the United Kingdom, but it has also played an important part in driving greenhouse output.
