Vertical Farming Market Size Worth USD 41.53 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research


Rising demand for food globally and urbanization around the world and increasing popularity of vertical farming due to their higher yield than conventional farming are key factors driving vertical farming market revenue growth.

Vancouver, Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global vertical farming market size was USD 4.80 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a rapid revenue CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period. Key drivers propelling this surge include the increasing demand for food worldwide, global urbanization trends, and the growing popularity of vertical farming due to its higher yield compared to conventional methods.

Vertical farming, a sustainable agricultural approach, enables the cultivation of food crops in vertically stacked layers, optimizing space and minimizing energy and water usage. The controlled environment of hydroponic greenhouses allows for year-round cultivation and harvesting, resulting in 11-13 harvests per year. This method offers a consistent yield with enhanced nutrient content and better control over plant diseases.


One of the significant advantages of vertical farming is its independence from climatic conditions. Improved control over temperature, moisture, and fertilizers in confined spaces contributes to uniform yields and disease prevention. As the world’s urban population grows, innovators are exploring alternative agricultural practices like vertical farming to ensure food security with minimal impact on land and water resources.

Latest Trends in Vertical Farming:

Integration of Robotics and AI:

Robotics and AI enhance plant monitoring, irrigation, and harvesting.
