Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Vertical Farming Market

In North America, the US, Canada, and Mexico have witnessed a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 infected patients.This led the respective governments to impose containment measures to limit human movement, further resulting in lower than usual production volumes at manufacturing plants.

The lower production volumes have had severe impacts on supply chain of the vertical farming equipment industry.Moreover, the limited availability of workforce in different regions caused deviations in the delivery schedule of vertical farming equipment in 2020.

However, vaccination drives were initiated and containment measure were relaxed in late 2020 or early 2021.Russia, the UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, and France are among the European countries that recorded a large number of COVID-19 cases.

These countries are home to numerous vertical farming equipment manufacturing facilities. In addition, the shutdown of supermarkets in the countries mentioned above during the initial and peak period of the pandemic has resulted in substantial decrease in demand for these equipment among the retailers. A majority of businesses in the region focus on the continuity of their businesses by utilizing the existing resources (both human and technologies) rather than investing in the procurement of newer technologies. However, the adoption of vertical farming market systems has gained traction from the Q1 2021.
