Plant factories utilize soil-less (or minimum soil) farming technology to enhance the overall outcome. Indoor vertical farms are sometimes called "plant factories." Indoor farming technology is still being perfected and there are many variations. In theory, all crops could be grown this way. But leafy vegetables hold the greatest potential, along with some fruits and herbs. On a traditional outdoor farm, environmental factors control the growth of the plants. The game changing factor here is that in a plant factory or indoor farm, producers control the environmental factors as well as the growth of the crops. In the Asia-Pacific region, the indoor farming industry is nurtured by machine learning and artificial intelligence. It also aims to revolutionize the communities across the region. Acknowledging the benefits of indoor farming, Asian countries, particularly in China and Japan, are fast adopting this technology with hundreds of indoor vertical farms. Further, water scarcity and a decline in arable lands across the Asia-Pacific region direct the market towards the increasing adoption of indoor farming. Farmers face a lack of rain, drought, climate change, insufficient irrigation systems, financial challenges, crop failures, increased dependency on chemical fertilizers, and limited crop varieties for years across Asia. However, the emergence of innovative indoor farming technology has paved the way towards higher market growth with sustainability. According to the report titled "Asia-Pacific Indoor Farming Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market Research, the indoor farming market is projected to grow at a 16.50% CAGR for 2022–2027. With the population of the Asia-Pacific region expected to reach 5 Billion by the upcoming timeframe, the responsibility to supply food to an ever-growing population is becoming difficult. The indoor farming industry is anticipated to be the viable option to overcome these threats. Across the region, the indoor farming sector is expecting a huge boom in investments and interest from manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers. This is largely due to advancements in technology such as sensors and smart energy systems that have improved the efficiency of growing products. Further, the market is segmented into five prominent countries, including China, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea. Among these countries, China is anticipated to lead the market during the forecast period. China is investing significant amounts of effort into developing indoor vertical farming systems to feed its burgeoning urban population. Also, China aims to become a world leader in industrial scale applications for indoor farming. The population of China is estimated to reach 1.5 Billion by the forecast period, with land diminishing at a shocking rate of 300 km2/year. Also, 80% of China's population is projected to live in cities, representing an incredible shift in the last 100 years. For all these reasons, partly-automated indoor farming is an essential feature for the future of China. For instance, there is a new plant factory in the north of China. The entire construction of the farm is 35000 m2,of which 3500 m2 is used for vegetable seedlings, 2500 m2 functions as a vegetable production area, and 3000 m2 is dedicated to Chinese medicinal herbs. The farm can raise more than 600,000 seedlings per batch. Per year, the farm produces 12 batches, thus 64 Million seedlings. According to the report, the Asia-Pacific vertical farming market is segmented into various facility types, including vertical farming, indoor greenhouse, deep water culture, and others. Among these types, the indoor greenhouse segment occupied more than 57% of the market share in 2021. However, increasing demand for vertical farms across the region is providing a higher market growth for this segment. Further, the market is segmented into five prominent growth mechanisms including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics; soil-based; and hybrid. Among these types, the soil-based indoor farming segment had the highest market share in 2021, owing to increasing adoption of indoor farming. However, growing awareness about more efficient hydroponics processes across the region is anticipated to change the forecast scenario. Further, based on crop types, the fruit, vegetable, and herb segment is projected to acquire more than 60% of the market share in the Asia-Pacific indoor farming market. Covid-19 impact: The pandemic has admittedly upended economic activity in the Asia-Pacific region. The spread of the infections by the virus has made governments impose lockdowns across major countries. Due to social distancing norms and a lack of a labor force, market growth declined to a measure. However, the pandemic appears to have sparked increased interest in developing agricultural technology to improve the efficiency of food systems, from input supplies through farming and processing to delivery and retail. Also, technological developments after the first quarter of 2021 across the region are fuelling the market growth for indoor farming in the Asia-Pacific region.

Initially, secondary research was used to get an understanding of the market and listing out the companies that are present in the market. The secondary research consists of third-party sources such as press releases, annual report of companies, analyzing the government generated reports and databases. After gathering the data from secondary sources primary research was conducted by making telephonic interviews with the leading players about how the market is functioning and then conducted trade calls with dealers and distributors of the market. Post this we have started doing primary calls to consumers by equally segmenting consumers in regional aspects, tier aspects, age group, and gender. Once we have primary data with us we have started verifying the details obtained from secondary sources. Intended audience This report can be useful to industry consultants, manufacturers, suppliers, associations & organizations related to agricultural industry, food & beverage industry, nutrition industry, government bodies and other stakeholders to align their market-centric strategies. In addition to marketing & presentations, it will also increase competitive knowledge about the industry.
