Market Overview:

Growing fruits, vegetables, and other products in a controlled environment such as a greenhouse with the utilization of new technologies is known as smart greenhouse farming. Cultivation in greenhouses has enabled farmers to increase output while also enhancing product quality by isolating them in micro-ecosystems with perfect conditions for plant growth. Higher yields compared to conventional agricultural techniques contribute to greater demand for fruits and vegetables as the population grows. The expansion of the North American smart greenhouse market is examined through the policies and investments in the United States and Canada. For instance, Agriculture Secretary in February 2022 stated at Lincoln University that the United States Department of Agriculture is delivering investment of $1 billion in partnerships to benefit America's climate-smart farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners. The new Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities opportunity will fund pilot projects that develop market opportunities for US agricultural products. Because of the growing popularity of agriculture and greenhouse horticulture, North America has one of the most widespread marketplaces.

Growth factors:

  • Innovation for power consumption and other concerns

To some extent, greenhouse farmers' issues have evolved. Overall power and heat requirements remain an issue, particularly in northern areas, but power consumption has fallen dramatically with the introduction of LED technology. Fortunately, novel greenhouse technology is assisting growers in solving these ongoing issues, with some solutions addressing numerous pain points at the same time. Several organizations currently provide advanced greenhouse management systems that are similar to or can be considered to be, artificial intelligence (AI). They can process massive volumes of real-time sensor data on temperature, humidity, light spectrum, light intensity, water quality, and other variables. For instance, AppHarvest in October 2022 said that its "touchless growing system" for salad greens has been calibrated at its 15-acre Berea indoor farm in Kentucky (USA). The AppHarvest Somerset farm also makes advantage of sunlight, which is supplemented with a hybrid LED lighting array when necessary, and rainwater in a closed-loop irrigation system. As a result, in addition to obtaining improved quality and yields, the North American smart greenhouse industry benefits.

  • Greenhouse tomatoes are in high demand.

New greenhouse technologies and horticultural improvements are transforming food production around the world. To attain record productivity and fruit quality, greenhouse tomato farmers are investing in several innovative horticulture technologies. Fresh greenhouse tomatoes continue to be in high demand due to their persistent high quality. Some farmers have broadened their options to include heirloom, grape, and cocktail cultivars to enhance sales. 'Cluster tomatoes' are also still quite popular. These tomatoes are gathered in clusters connected to the vine, providing an aesthetic appeal as well as optimal freshness and taste. For instance, Nature Fresh Farms introduced Yoom, a two-bite, deep purple tomato cultivated in a greenhouse in November 2022. The variety is grown in Mexico and is available all year at stores throughout North America.

  • The hardware sector has the highest market share

Hardware devices such as HVAC systems, LED grow lights, sensors, irrigation systems, and control systems will account for a major portion of the expansion, with commercial growers likely being the greatest driver of demand. For instance, Sollum Technologies announced an agreement in April 2021 to expand its smart lighting system in Allegro Acres' facilities. Allegro Acres is introducing Sollum's unique LED lighting technology across an additional eight acres, bringing the total deployment to 12 acres, in addition to the initial four acres of greenhouse LEDs completed in 2020. Given that the horticulture lighting business is transitioning from HPS to LED lighting systems, there is fierce rivalry in the smart greenhouse hardware tech space which means a growth opportunity in the sector.

Key Developments:

  • June 2022: At the GreenTech Conference, IUNU unveiled LUNA AI for Tomatoes. LUNA AI incorporates numerous cameras, making it the only product capable of imaging the entire vine rather than just the fruit. LUNA AI is also the only product that provides 3-D analysis in addition to 2-D analysis, introducing a completely new dataset.
  • November 2022: Blue Radix, an independent Dutch autonomous growing specialist, has been picked by Revol Greens, the largest sustainable greenhouse lettuce farmer in North America, to provide technology services to all of Revol's US-based greenhouses. Blue Radix will provide artificial intelligence technologies and services to Revol Green for day-to-day greenhouse operations such as climate control, irrigation, and energy management.
