Global Hydroponics Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2015-2020 forecast period. The hydroponics market value is anticipated to grow from $19.95 billion in 2015 to $27.33 billion in 2020. A sub segment of hydro culture, hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil.
Hydroponics involve soil less culture where crops are grown in mineral nutrient solution. Plants that are not traditionally grown in a particular climate condition, are preferably grown in a controlled environment system like hydroponics. Hydroponics method uses two main mediums to grow crops- solution culture and solid medium culture. This method of farming is a niche segment gaining popularity in urban, customized agriculture setup.
Hydroponics is termed as one of the fastest growing soil less farming practice at a global level, wherein a tailored nutrient solution is used for plant growth with a superior quality and sustainable manner. One of the major growth drivers for the hydroponic industry is the documented higher yield in comparison to traditional agricultural techniques. Along with profit farming, growing consumption of exotic, salad crops and increasing need for global food security will drive the market upwards. Lack of awareness regarding the soil less agriculture system and high initial cost would hinder the market growth to an extent. Increased cultivation of medicinal plants globally and customized farming approach may provide future growth opportunity for the industry.
Global hydroponics market is segmented based on system type, crop type and by geography. By type, the hydroponics farming is classified as liquid and aggregate system; hydroponics growth techniques appoint aggregate system primarily in commercial cultivations. By crop type, the market includes products like tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce and vegetables, strawberries, peppers, and other food crops. Tomato crop is the major segment driving the global hydroponics market for the forecast period.
Europe is traditionally the largest market implementing advanced techniques in hydroponic smart greenhouse horticulture. The matured European market demand is led by countries such as The Netherlands, Spain, and France. Asia-Pacific forms the second largest market for hydroponics which is then expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. North American region led by US and Canada, is expected to grow at a better pace during 2015-2020.
