Europe remains the largest market throughout the forecast period

With high degree of urbanization, Europe has been the largest grow lights market. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to emerge strongly, mostly owing to the growing population and rising regional inclination towards modern farming techniques. The U.K., Germany, Netherlands and Scandinavia have been the major grow lights market in Europe, while in Asia-Pacific, Japan, Australia, China, and Singapore are the key countries.    

Growth in indoor and vertical farming is the key growth driver

Increasing demand for indoor and vertical farming techniques that use grow lights to pace up crop production, is driving the demand of grow lights. The growing need for consistent supply of food among consumers coupled with the growing awareness of the benefits of using LED grow lights, is resulting in the growth of indoor and vertical farms, globally. In addition, the growing per capita spending and rising disposable income of the population are some other factors driving the adoption of both the farming techniques. Moreover, the governments of various countries are promoting indoor and vertical farms to use LED grow lights to work efficiently and speedily, which further drives the global demand of grow lights. Due to growing indoor and vertical farming, the grow lights market is expected to witness growth in coming years.

The increasing demand for grow lights growth chambers with growing population is another important factor driving the grow lights market. The world population is growing steadily, while farmland and natural resources are becoming lesser day by day. According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, the food production must increase by 70% to feed the global population for the next 40 years. This means that the agricultural sector and food producers are facing number of new challenges, such as irregular supply of food, and insufficient arable land. New farming methods and technologies are necessary to be developed to cope with the demands of food production.

Fragmented market structure

Koninklijke Philips N.V., and General Electric are the top two companies operating in the grow lights market. There exists a stiff competition among other key players like Osram Licht AG, Dool Industries, Heliospectra AB, and Illumitex Inc.
