Canada commercial greenhouse market is expected to grow at CAGR of 3.71% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$8.656 million in 2024. Burgeoning demand for fruits and vegetables grown in controlled environment is driving the growth of Canada Commercial Greenhouse market. There is a rising demand for greenhouse vegetables owing to rising awareness about the goodness and benefits of organically grown food. Increasing demand for crops being produced indoors that are difficult to grow conventionally is also driving the demand for commercial greenhouses in Canada. Due to expanding urbanization with land covered with condo towers and shopping malls, it has become increasingly difficult for food banks in Canada to source fresh food for people who live below poverty line. Keeping this in mind, in November 2016, the Mississauga Food Bank opened the Canada’s first food bank aquaponic farm for producing enough fresh produce for its customers. Although this form of urban farming is already used in countries like the U.S., many are focusing to set up aquaponics farms as an educational center for local children to learn about sustainable food production. Since aquaponic farming requires greenhouses, the growing Canadian aquaponics industry is positively impacting the demand for commercial greenhouses.
