Using layers of potted seeds coated on top of one another, indoor farms upsurge the overall crop output per unit area, pushing the market. Growing plants or crops indoors on both a small scale and a large scale is known as indoor farming. Aquaponics and hydroponics are used in indoor farming, and artificial lighting is used to provide plants with the necessary nutrients and light levels. The high initial cost of constructing indoor farms and restrictions on the types of crops that can be grown are anticipated to stymie industry expansion.
Because people are becoming more health concerned, organic foods are becoming more and more popular, which is what is driving the market expansion. The UAE vertical farming market is expected to expand throughout the forecast period due to factors including a decline in arable land and the simplicity with which crops may be monitored and harvested using cutting-edge technology.
Plants can be stacked vertically to increase production while using less room for the farmer. To advance the agriculture sector and assist the UAE vertical farming market, researchers are attempting to incorporate indoor vertical farming into the specialty crop category. Based on growth mechanism, regional distribution, application, structure, and competitive environment, the vertical farming market in the UAE is segmented. The market is divided based on structure into shipping container and building-based vertical farms.
Hydroponics indoor farming to surge the market expansion in the UAE
Food can be grown hydroponically without using soil. This method involves placing a mineral solution in the water around the plant roots to grow the plants. The primary factor fueling the increased demand for hydroponic technologies is the UAE’s worsening water issue. It is believed that the hydroponic growth method reduces the possibility of illnesses being brought on by soil organisms. It also offers a larger return on investment than other growth methods and is more cost-effective. Because they receive nutrients and water regularly, plants grown using the hydroponic system can endure a power loss for a longer period.
In addition, it has a higher return on investment than other growth methods and is more cost-effective. Because it can continuously supply the plants with the necessary nutrients and water, hydroponic plant growth can survive longer in the event of a power loss. Another factor driving the vertical farming business in the UAE is the use of hydroponic systems for agriculture on desert soil.
?Increased focus on food security to increase market growth in the UAE.
As UAE's population is increasing, the need for food security has risen, hence causing the indoor farming market to increase. UAE is home to about 80% of migrant inhabitants, and this percentage is rising quickly. Unconventional agricultural methods are becoming more and more popular as a result of the growing demand for food caused by a population with such a diverse range of palates. Additionally, hydroponic systems enable farmers to control plant development and nutrient delivery, promoting the nation's sustainable, reasonably priced, and nutritious food systems.?
Market Key Developments
- In July 2022, The largest hydroponic farm in the world officially opened in Bustanica, thanks to a US$40 million investment. Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC), one of the biggest catering firms in the world, established the facility as its first vertical farm under the name Emirates Crop One, a joint venture between Crop One, a pioneer in technology-driven indoor vertical farming, and Emirates Crop One.
