As economies grow and the majority of the population demands a higher standard of living, personal health and well-being become a top priority. In the Asia-Pacific region, an increasing number of consumers are searching for fresh leafy vegetables that are free from pesticides and safe to eat. Asia-Pacific is one of the most lucrative markets for the higher growth of the vertical farming market. A growing population across the region directs the higher need for crops to feed them. Also, increasing urbanization has resulted in a lack of arable space across the region. In this scenario, vertical farming is expected to be the viable option. In addition to that, the demand for vertical farming technology is expected to increase across the region into the foreseeable future due to an increasing concentration on organic food consumption. From the research, it has been found that Asia-Pacific consumes over 75% of all vegetables across the globe. Also, the Asia-Pacific is home to some of the largest vertical farms compared to other regions. Companies involved in vertical farming are investing and expanding their operations to other countries, which will, in turn, fuel the market's growth by 2027. Moreover, the growing penetration of technology-enabled devices such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, intelligent monitoring, and advanced sensors into vertical farming has propelled the market growth in Asia-Pacific.

According to the report titled "Asia-Pacific Vertical Farming Market Outlook, 2027", published by Actual Research, the vertical farming market is anticipated to grow at a 25.55% CAGR from 2022–2027. The increasing demand for environmentally friendly food production is gaining more traction in the region. Asia-Pacific vertical farming market dominates the global vertical farming market. The geographical opportunities for vertical farming across the region have enhanced opportunities for this industry to grow exponentially. Also, the region aims to save water consumption in agricultural fields and to supply large amounts of pesticide-free food. The Asia-Pacific vertical farming market is segmented into five major countries: China, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea. Among these countries, Japan's vertical farming market is anticipated to acquire the most significant portion of the market share during the forecast period.

Japan has been one of the early adopters of the vertical farming industry. Due to the aging population and rural migration across the country, vertical farming has found its way. According to the research, the number of vegetable vehicle farms or factories across the country has grown from 93 in 2011 to 390 in 2021. This surge is attributed to the technological advancements taking place in the vertical farming industry. In Japan, Spread Co., Ltd., Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc., and ES-CON Japan will jointly establish a new company that will construct and operate vertical farms. As for the first initiative, the company is planning to build an automated vertical farm called "Techno Farm Fukuroi." This farm will be the world’s largest automated farm and will be capable of producing 10 tons of lettuce per day.

According to the report, the Asia-Pacific vertical farming industry is segmented into three types of growth mechanisms, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. Among these types, the hydroponics segment is expected to occupy the largest market share during the forecast period with more than 55%. Vertical farming companies across the Asia-Pacific region are implanting new innovative technologies, majorly in hydroponics. Sustenir (Singapore), for example, opened a 3000 square foot hydroponics vertical farming facility in Tuen Mun (Hong King) in 2019. Further, the market is segmented into two structure types, including building-based vertical farming and shipping container-based vertical farming. Among these structure types, the building-based vertical farming segment is expected to occupy the largest market share with more than 55% during the forecast period. However, the shipping container-based vertical farming segment is projected to grow at a higher growth rate for 2022–2027.

The pandemic has admittedly upended economic activity across the Asia-Pacific region. In 2020, the government imposed strict lockdown and social distancing norms across the country. That resulted in a major drop in various production units across the region. However, the impact of the free flow of other goods and services combined with the lack of an available labor force has raised the specter of longer-term disruptions to daily life, livelihoods, and cash on hand. By the first quarter of 2021, the demand for organic food will have gained higher momentum across the Asia-Pacific region. Higher concentration on health has accelerated the overall market growth.
