  • As per FAO data, in China, there had been a negligible decrease in arable land area from 2017 to 2020. The increasing population has pushed the demand for food in China, thereby pushing the farmers toward the adoption of vertical farming.  

North America May Occupy Maximum Market Share

  • The United States is expected to invest in developing future foods. Consumers are moving toward “fresh-from-farm-to-table.” Therefore, the availability of freshly harvested crops in retail outlets is expected to increase in the country.
  • Due to the increasing number of buildings in urban areas like New York and Chicago, vertical farming activities like revamping high rises and derailed vacant warehouses are witnessing growth, leading to an increase in fresh food production.
