Europe is seeing a significant rise when it comes to indoor farming. Many countries compete to dominate the market, which results in the birth of many new farms. The number of indoor farms across the region is still relatively small. However, the sector is increasing at a rapid pace. Producing locally-grown greens all year round can be done without soil or sunshine in Europe due to the high emergence of indoor farming. While set-up and operational costs are increasing, there is a high demand amongst European environmentally conscious consumers. Further, changes in climate conditions, changes in temperature and water adversely across the region are creating higher demands for alternative farming methods. Further, various aggrotech companies are making efforts to curb the challenges by adopting indoor farming. They are also investing in research and development to combine technologies with food systems to enhance productivity and sustainability. For instance, in May 2021, LettUs Grow Ltd (an indoor farming technology provider) announced its partnership with Harper Adams University. The aim of the partnership is to undertake the trial of various irrigation systems and technologies. Also, higher investment by the company is expected to create new opportunities for the market. According to the report titled "Europe Indoor Farming Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market Research, the indoor farming market is anticipated to have a market size of more than USD 11 billion during the forecast period. The growing demand for organic and healthy food in Europe is driving the market growth. In addition to that, the increasing challenges of limited land and space for growing crops across the region are encouraging cities and companies to adopt controlled environment agriculture practices. Further, the European indoor farming market is segmented into six prominent countries, including Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands. Among these countries, the UK is estimated to occupy a larger market share by 2027. Agriculture in the UK is highly automated and efficient, producing 64% of the total amount of food consumed across the country. Also, this sector occupies about 69% of the country’s land area, with most of the farmland located in the East of England. However, traditional farming in the UK often makes excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides, and it continuously suffers from labor shortages. Due to that, indoor farming has gained popularity in the United Kingdom in recent years as it is being set up in various cities across the country. Private and government funds are widely supporting indoor farming across the country, aiming to promote and integrate this approach into urban centers. For instance, in an urban environment such as London, indoor farms can guarantee a constant fresh supply to its population at any time. In addition to that, a growing number of indoor farming companies are currently operating in British cities, where they deliver fresh, pest-free produce to local supermarkets and consumers. Currently, the UK is home to the world’s largest high-rise farm as well as some of the world’s most innovative indoor farms. According to the report, the European indoor farming market is segregated into various facility types, including vertical farms, indoor greenhouses, deep water culture, etc. Among these types, the indoor greenhouse segment is expected to register the highest market share by registering the highest revenue. However, the vertical farm segment is growing with a prominent CAGR during the forecast period owing to increasing adoption across the region. Further, the market is segmented into five growth mechanisms, including hydroponics, aeroponics, aquaponics, soil-based, and hybrid. Among these types, the soil-based indoor farming segment had the highest revenue in 2021. However, growing awareness about hydroponics growth mechanisms across the region is anticipated to change the scenario. On the other hand, many major market players across the region are investing in aquaponics farms as they eliminate soil-borne plant and fish diseases. For instance, Les NouvellesFermes (urban agriculture company) raised USD 2.36 million to construct urban aquaponics farms across Europe. Further, the hardware component dominated the market in 2021. The growth can be attributed to the rise in demand for hardware among farmers for maintaining an ideal farm environment. Covid-19 Impact: The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the overall market growth. Many countries initiated border closures to curb the infection spread by viruses, thereby causing interruptions in the supply chain for indoor farming. Moreover, the suspension of production facilities led to delays in the supply of agricultural chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides. However, an increase in the demand for organic food was witnessed during the pandemic, which is expected to fuel the need for indoor farming. A shift in consumer preferences regarding farming methods is also expected to boost market growth by 2027.
