The horticulture lighting market was valued at US$1.944 billion in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 23.43% over the forecast period to reach US$8.484 billion by 2027.


Horticulture lighting helps plants grow by using the light according to their needs and requirements. These lights help in increasing the yield and maintaining the health of crops. They produce less heat, which is why their demand is high in the market. Moreover, an increasing population and a lack of agricultural land area are anticipated to boost the growth of this market during the forecast period. The growing population across the globe has increased the demand for agriculture and food products. This rising demand has forced farmers to adopt advanced technologies and methods in their agricultural practices to meet the growing demand for food by the global population. Over the past few years, human and animal power in agriculture has been reduced because of the need for a variety of equipment. Furthermore, many initiatives are being taken by the governments of various countries to support their agriculture or horticulture sectors to improve mechanization and boost farm productivity, which in turn is expected to drive the demand for horticulture lighting.

Market Trends:

With the growing trend of indoor and outdoor vertical farming applications, the use of LED lighting applications is growing in the horticulture sector. With the help of LED, a plant can be grown earlier (only in 35 days) in comparison to its natural growth time, i.e., 50 days, due to its various benefits. LED lights are commonly employed in the production of a variety of crops, including tomatoes, greens, cucumbers, and other vegetables.  For instance, Farm8, a South Korean agriculture cultivator, has been using LED and related technology to help plants grow faster. Signify has announced the establishment of a city farm facility, “GrowWise”, for the cultivation of a variety of crops such as green leafy vegetables, cherries, strawberries, etc.

NASA is continuously experimenting with plants using LED lighting and concluded that it shows immense potential as a horticultural lighting fixture because of its properties such as low energy consumption, low heat operation, and the capability to customize the spectral output to emit the specific wavelengths usable by plants. LED lights are highly reliable as they can be operated for more than 40,000+ hours depending on the type of application. LED is expected to hold a significant share in the horticulture lighting market.

Market Drivers

  • A growing population and a scarcity of agricultural land

One of the primary reasons driving the market's growth is the continually increasing demand for food from the growing population, which is expected to drive the adoption of lightning in the horticulture sector to improve the yield of various crops. Moreover,  with the decline in arable land/per capita, due to the rise in urbanization, agricultural growers and producers have been looking at alternatives and have been adopting novel technologies that are expected to drive the market growth. According to the data given by the World Bank and FAO, the global arable land/per capita is expected to be around 0.19 hectares by 2050, down from 0.42 hectares in 1960. Also, the changing climatic conditions during traditional and orthodox farming have led to the adoption of lightning in the horticulture sector to improve the yield of various crops. For instance, Fluence Bioengineering, an Osram business unit, announced new solid-state lighting (SSL) distribution partnership with Israel-based Remy 108 Ltd, with a focus on the burgeoning legalized cannabis market in Israel. Moreover, the rising development of vertical farming due to the growing food demand across the globe is driving the use of lightning in the horticulture sector. Toshiba and Panasonic are supporting the growers by providing them with financial and technical support for setting up the vertical farms. Stay Food Group, an international supplier and cultivator of fresh fruits and vegetables, has constructed a vertical farm in Europe by using Philips Greenpower LED horticultural lighting. Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH announced the launch of the Duris S5 purple, which helps in combining the wavelengths of red and blue light into a single purple LED, which helps in making horticulture applications more efficient and cost-effective.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Horticulture Lighting Market

The COVID-19 pandemic, however, is expected to act as a restraint to this market growth because of the pandemic, several countries around the world went into lockdown, which completely disrupted its demand. Also, work stoppages, labor shortages, and preventive quarantines to curb the spread of the virus are expected to have a negative impact on the market.

Competitive Insights
