The Ecuador greenhouse market is estimated to be valued at US$68.162 million in 2020. Due to its ease of availability and lower initial infrastructure costs, commercial greenhouse horticulture began by employing soil as the foundation for all plants. Glass or plastic roofs, as well as glass or plastic walls, are common covering materials used in commercial greenhouses. It's a new application with a lot of promise that employs a variety of technologies, including heating, cooling, ventilation, LED grow lights, communication technology, irrigation systems, and control systems, among others. In the commercial greenhouse sector, heating and cooling systems are the most important pieces of equipment. The increasing trend of organic farming & rooftop farming and the increasing population are driving factors for the market. Using greenhouse farming brings in more yield than traditional cultivation as farmers can have more control over the environment by managing the temperature, air humidity, and light. Once controlled, farmers can grow vegetables, flowers, and fruits all year.

In Ecuador, greenhouses involve a huge amount of investment, but they yield good results. According to agricultural expert Hernán Rivera Fierro of Agroverde, greenhouse vegetable growing in Ecuador is increasing exponentially as climate conditions in the country have altered dramatically in recent years and open-field vegetables face significant challenges. The Ecuadorian government has launched and brought in changes to transform raw materials into processed products, and growing in a greenhouse is a way to achieve this, even though the costs are higher.  GlobalGAP (Good Agricultural Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices) ) certification is demanded by the market. An increase in exports, an increase in urbanization, less availability of land to produce and climate change are all culminating in a rise in demand in the forecasted period. Broccoli is one of Ecuador's most important export crops. Although much of it is destined for the frozen food industry, it is still grown traditionally. Ecuador's growers can produce organic broccoli and have it certified as such, putting the country in a strong export position.

By type, the Ecuador greenhouse market is segmented into gutter connected, free-standing and Venlo greenhouses. A rectangular box with two sloped roofs and a ridge is a simple freestanding greenhouse. The ridge is a single-piece metal or wood structure that sits above the sloped roof's highest point. Because of the higher heating costs during the colder months, the freestanding greenhouse is rarely used. Gutter-connected commercial greenhouses account for a large market share by type for their cost-effectiveness and ability to be built on a small piece of land without affecting crop output. By equipment, the Ecuador greenhouse market is segmented into heating, cooling, and control systems. Heating systems are one of the most important needs for successful plant production in commercial greenhouses. Plant growth is aided by systems that maintain a steady temperature and do not emit hazardous materials. The control system is widely used in Argentina and is considered to account for a larger market share in the forecasted period as the greenhouse's control system automates the process of reaching the ideal temperature as dictated by the growing process of your crops.

By application, the Ecuador greenhouse market is segmented into fruits & vegetables, flowers, and ornaments & nursery crops. Fruits and vegetables have the highest scope to increase production and are the best and most widely grown. Growing vegetables in greenhouses also allows for the establishment of the ideal conditions for the crops due to the controlling variables available in greenhouses, such as moisture, light, temperature, fertilizer, humidity, and irrigation. Vegetables and fruits are expected to increase demand export-wise as the country accounts for the highest exports and fewer imports and sustains its domestic market with their produce.

Covid-19 Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a severe influence on agriculture's whole supply chain and, as a result, the commercial greenhouse market. Many growers have lost store distribution and are either reducing their supply or closing their shops entirely. The need for transportation and trucking services is increasing rapidly. However, because fewer individuals leave their houses for errands and shopping, the supply is extremely limited. Consumers have panicked-purchased from supermarkets and merchants, causing firms to constantly send products to replace their shelves. However, as a result of the supply-chain interruption, many greenhouse producers are having difficulty shipping their stock out.
