The global commercial greenhouse market is estimated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.0% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

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.


Factors primarily 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.

Additionally, 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 greenhouses market.

Moreover, the 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” initiative that emphasizes at six areas to support agri-businesses, including 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.

Furthermore, 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.

However, the 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.
