Major food futurists and industry leaders across the globe state that high-tech indoor farming operations are the future of the agriculture industry. Indoor farming is able to operate everywhere, virtually invincible against pests and poor weather, and produce local, fresh, high-quality, low-carbon food year-round. The principal benefit of indoor farming regarding the land is the fact that no soil is used with a lower amount of water. This approach to food production has several positive consequences for land use as well as the environment. As for South America, growing demand for indoor farming in highly populated urban countries, AI-controlled farms, and thriving demand for locally grown products are the major driving forces. In addition to that, the market is projected to expand as the customer demand for organic food is complemented by rising disposable incomes and an accelerating population. However, South America is anticipated to grow at a moderate growth rate during the forecast period owing to a lack of awareness about indoor and vertical farming across the region although the vast majority of the farmland is still available in South America, resulting in the expansion of local and national crop production economies. According to the report titled "South America Indoor Farming Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market Research, the indoor farming market is projected to have a market size of more than USD 1500 million during the forecast period. Despite being widely used in agriculture, indoor farming is virtually unknown in South America. Many market players and industry leaders are trying to change this scenario by bringing their expertise and experience into the market. For instance, in 2018, Bunster and Sjogren launched AgroUrbana, which is believed to be South America’s first indoor large-scale farm. Since then, the momentum has increased and recently, AgroUrbana crossed USD 4 million in series A funding with the aim of implanting indoor farming production across the region. The company currently operates a 3000 square foot climate-controlled pilot facility in Santiago that grows lettuce varieties using hydroponics and artificial lighting systems. The South American indoor vertical market is segmented into three prominent countries, including Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia. Among these countries, Brazil is estimated to lead the market during the forecast period. When it comes to Brazilian indoor farms, Brazil is majorly known for its pink farms. Pink Farms indoor farms produce up to 100 times more than open fields due to the level of multilevel structures with no air exchange with the external environment with temperature, humidity, and air quality controls. This farm also indicates a reduction in water consumption of up to 95% and a fertilizer usage reduction of 50%. In parallel, through the R&D sector of the company, it seeks to increase its portfolio with products such as strawberries and tomatoes, among others. According to the report, South America's indoor vertical market is segmented into three facility types, including vertical fam, indoor greenhouse, DWC, and ETC. Among these segments, the indoor greenhouse segment is projected to occupy more than 50% of the market by 2027 owing to growing adoption across the region. According to the report, South America's indoor farming market is segmented into five growth mechanism types, including hydroponics, aeropoics, aquapoics, soil-based, and hybrid. Among these types, the soil-based indoor farming segment occupied more than 40% of the market share by 2027. However, increasing adoption of hydroponics growth mechanisms has fuelled the overall market during the forecast period. However, based on component types, the hardware segment is projected to dominate the market with more than 70% of the market share. Further, based on crop types, the market is segregated into three types: fruits, vegetables, and herbs; flowers and ornamentals; and other crops. The fruits, vegetables, and herbs segment is projected to have more than a 55% market share. On the other hand, increasing diverse applications for the flower and ornamental segment is anticipated to boost the market growth for indoor farming. Covid-19 impact: The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the South American region. Brazil had the highest number of COVID-19 confirmed cases, followed by other countries, such as Ecuador, Peru, Chile, and Argentina. The governments of various countries in South America imposed several initiatives to protect people and to control COVID-19’s spread in the region through lockdowns, trade bans, and travel restrictions. These measures had a direct impact on the region’s economic growth as the region would face lower export revenues, both from the drop in commodity prices and the reduction in export volumes. However, a change in consumer preference for healthy and organic foods has positively impacted the market. Also, due to the work from home scenario, a major population has adopted farming as a hobby, which is expected to drive the higher market growth.
