The Global Horticulture Lighting Market size is expected to reach $11.1 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 21.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

The effective spectral dispersion of light is critical for plant growth. The demand for horticultural lighting is projected to rise as more people become aware of the issue. One of the major factors driving up the demand for horticulture lighting is the need to maintain a controlled farm environment. With new lighting technologies, horticulture lights can assist maximize crop productivity while also saving energy. These characteristics of horticulture lights, as well as growing awareness among farmers, are expected to propel the market studied forward over the projection period. The use of horticultural lighting is projected to be aided by a rise in the number of food suppliers & farm start-ups.

With the growing popularity of indoor and vertical farming, LED lighting applications in the horticulture sector are becoming increasingly important. LEDs are widely employed in the production of a variety of crops, including herbs, tomatoes, greens, & cucumbers, among others, due to their tunable spectrum and illuminance. Farm8, a South Korean agriculture cultivator, has been using LED technology to aid in the growth of plants. When compared to the time it takes a plant to grow outside (50 days), a plant can be grown in roughly 35 days with this technique.

The world’s rising population is driving up food demand, which is challenging to provide alone through conventional agriculture. But, advances in horticulture lighting have made it possible to boost crop yields in indoor agriculture. In the absence of presence or partial absence of natural light, horticulture light serves as the principal light source in indoor farming. GrowWise, a city farm facility concentrating on raising a range of crops like as leafy vegetables, strawberries, and other vegetables, was founded by companies like Signify (Philips Lighting). To boost crop productivity in its indoor farming facilities, the business plans to use LED horticulture lights.

Rapid population growth and urbanization, diminishing water supplies, and continuous climate change due to increased greenhouse gas emissions have all led to reduced arable land reserves per person. As agricultural land becomes more limited, governments face concerns about sustainability & feeding the world’s rapidly growing population, which is anticipated to reach multiple billion by 2050. Because they depend on enhanced technology & automation to make the most of limited land and water, urban agriculture, greenhouse farming, and vertical farming are all instances of options for improving future food production. Within the limits of urban, weather high-rise structures, food production technology seeks to significantly boost productivity while minimizing environmental damage.

COVID-19 Impact

The outbreak and the spread of COVID-19 have disrupted the entire LED lighting supply chain, right from upstream chip manufacturers to packaging and lighting OEMs. The outbreak of COVID-19 in China, for example, prompted lockdown measures that included the closure of manufacturing facilities & warehouses, affecting global exports & shipments from a variety of businesses.

Lockdown measures implemented in various nations throughout the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a drop in local and international demand for consumer goods, particularly horticultural lighting. These firms’ horticulture lighting products are acquired by a variety of stakeholders for diverse applications. COVID-19 had an impact not only on the operations of the numerous horticultural lighting producers but also on their suppliers & distributors.

Market Growth Factors

The farm-to-table concept is gaining traction

The farm-to-table concept entails providing local produce to restaurants, cafeterias, fast food joints, and other places in the same neighbourhood. The demand for locally farmed food is expanding, and the number of customers interested in eating such meals is growing with each day. More people have joined in as the notion has risen in popularity, & there is no doubt that the complete awareness of consuming locally farmed food has improved in recent years. As a result, the farm-to-table idea is no longer exclusive to health-conscious or trend-conscious diners. The need for more locally sourced products may eventually spread across numerous markets in the hotel industry. In the case of farm-to-table restaurants, horticulture lighting ensures timely product availability.

Popular Use of LEDs

These lights are also less expensive than other artificial lighting options. LEDs do not burn out like conventional light bulbs, although they do lose a little number of lumens with time. LEDs may last for more than 50,000 hours, whereas light bulbs only last around a year on average (depending on the type of application). The longer lifespan assures a high level of dependability. LEDs emit light more efficiently than previous lighting fixtures, producing far less heat. Heat is considered waste in conventional indoor farming and is eliminated by an air conditioner or fan. However, LEDs can reduce the energy usage involved with heat removal by not producing it in the first place.

Market Restraining Factors

LED horticulture lights have high setup & installation expenses

With more people becoming aware of the advantages of horticulture lighting, the use of these devices is on the rise. Plants have been grown indoors using a variety of artificial lighting sources. Previously, HPS & electric ballasts were commonly employed as effective light sources in indoor farming. LEDs are popular nowadays because they eliminate the limitations of high-pressure sodium (HPS), fluorescent (FL), metal-halide, & electric ballast lights. The initial investment necessary to purchase high-quality LED lights is larger than that required to purchase traditional lighting technologies such as fluorescent & high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs. This is because each LED light unit has arrays of LEDs that are specifically developed for horticulture use.

Offering Outlook

Based on Offering, the market is segmented into Hardware and Software & Services. The software & services segment garnered a significant revenue share in the horticulture lighting market in 2021.

Technology Outlook

Based on Technology, the market is segmented into LED, HID, Fluorescent, and Others. The LED segment acquired the highest revenue share in the horticulture lighting market in 2021. LED technology is gaining traction in the horticulture industry, due to part to NASA’s ongoing plant-growth research using LED lighting. Because of its low energy consumption, cool operation, and flexibility to adjust the spectrum output to emit the particular wavelengths needed by plants, it has a lot of potential as a horticulture lighting fixture. Government attempts to promote the use of energy-efficient LEDs in horticulture to minimize energy consumption are projected to drive this segment’s growth. LED lighting has become more efficient in converting electricity into light as a result of technological improvements, and this trend is projected to continue in horticulture. When compared to alternative horticulture lighting systems, LEDs are more energy-efficient and cost-effective.

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Greenhouses, Vertical Farms, Indoor Farms, and Others.
