The global commercial
greenhouse market is estimated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate
(CAGR) of 8.0% during the forecast period of 2021-2030.
Commercial greenhouses refer to outdoor structures built with roofs and
walls, usually made of transparent materials like plastic or glass and equipped
with high technology. These greenhouses allow the cultivation of fruits,
flowers, and vegetables under highly controlled conditions and stable
environments, ensuring a continuous year-round supply of high-quality products
while effectively overcoming climate change issues and land and water shortage.
Various technologies used in commercial greenhouses include: ventilation
systems, LED grow lights, heating systems, cooling systems, irrigation system,
communication technology, and control systems, among others.
driving the growth of the market include: the rapidly burgeoning demand for
food due to the ever-increasing global population; the rising awareness &
knowledge regarding the benefits of commercial greenhouse technology, including
easy availability, less initial infrastructure costs, and higher yield; the growing
need and adoption of advanced technology in agriculture to achieve high productivity
while making efficient utilization of resources; the expanding farming sector,
and the rapid urbanization across the globe.
the overall land available for cultivation across the globe is shrinking
rapidly every year. As a result, there is an increasing need to maximize the
crop yield in the available land to meet the proliferating food demand due to
the ever-rising global human population. In tandem with the constant
fluctuations in the climatic conditions around the world, the factor mentioned
above is leading to the escalating adoption of commercial greenhouses among
farmers, which, in turn, is augmenting the growth of the global commercial
number of initiatives and support from the governments of various regions
pertaining to the adoption and utilization of commercial greenhouses have been
growing in the last few years. For instance, the Canadian government is offering
financial assistance to the greenhouse growers with its “Growing Forward 2”

food safety assurance, environment, climate change, etc. Also, the Taraba State
Government in Nigeria, in 2017, launched the greenhouse farming and harvesting
of exotic vegetables for sale outside and within Nigeria, which aided in the
expansion the greenhouse market in the region.
other factors such as: the growing trend of rooftop farming; the enhancing
adoption of greenhouse automation technologies and mergers & acquisitions
in the industry; the increasing research and development activities in the
sector; and the soaring demand from floriculture and ornamental horticulture
applications are anticipated to further create ample growth opportunities for the
global commercial greenhouse market during the forecast period.
high initial cost associated with the setup of commercial greenhouse and the
dearth of skilled workforce in the market for operating is expected to hinder
the growth of the global commercial greenhouse market to a certain extent
during the forecast period.
