Global Plant Factory Market Size To Worth USD 242.2 Billion By 2032 | CAGR 7.1%

May 15, 2023

Pune, INDIA New York, United States , May 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Global Plant Factory Market Size is to Grow from USD 121.9 Billion in 2022 to USD 242.2 Billion by 2032, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.1% during the projected period. The global plant factory market is projected to expand in the coming years as demand for fresh produce and environmentally friendly agriculture practises rises. The industry is poised to play a critical role in the future of food production, addressing the challenges of feeding a growing population in a sustainable manner. Get a Sample PDF Brochure: The plant factory is an industry that produces crops, herbs, and other plant-based products in controlled environments. Greenhouses, vertical farms, and other indoor facilities that use technology to optimise growing conditions and increase yields are examples of these environments. Plant Factory is an innovative sector that aims to completely transform crop production through the use of industrial automation and bioinformatics. By artificially managing the plant growth environment, a plant factory is expected to increase yield, harvesting density, and economic impact. A growing demand for fresh and locally grown produce, as well as a desire to reduce the environmental impact of traditional agriculture, are driving the plant factory market. LED lighting, hydroponic systems, and automated control systems are examples of technological advancements that have made plant factories more efficient and cost-effective. These advancements have enabled year-round production as well as control over growing conditions such as temperature, humidity, and light, resulting in higher yields and shorter growth cycles. However, plant factories necessitate a significant initial investment in equipment, technology, and skilled labour to set up and operate. This can be an impediment to entry for new players and restrict market growth.
