Limited Availability of Arable Land for Conventional Agriculture Fuels Vertical farming crops Market Growth

The growth of the global population, combined with a looming water crisis, is moving the Earth toward a global food crisis. Feeding the anticipated population of 2050 (9.7 billion) needs an additional 109 million arable hectares, a landmass larger than Brazil. Given that 80% of arable land is already in use, absent significant changes to traditional agriculture practices, the world faces a significant food shortage. Water scarcity, which is likely to be made worse by climate change, is another threat to the global food system. According to the United Nations, by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population would live in water-stressed regions due to use, growth, and climate change. Presently, 70% of the world’s freshwater is used for traditional agriculture, so a water crisis would certainly emphasize the food crisis. The impact of climate change would be variable and unpredictable, which would also add pressure on the food system. For example, higher CO2 levels may increase some plant yields but reduce their nutritional values. Warmer temperatures may lead to the growth of many new pests and weeds. Extreme temperatures may lead to droughts or excessive rainfall, both of which can prevent crops from growing.

Vertical farming can be a part of the solution as it uses less water and allows farmers to control the climate needed for the crops. For instance, a group of researchers from Columbia University, who commercialized the idea of vertical farming in the US, has projected that a 30-story building covering one city block could have the efficiency of a 2,400-acre traditional farm because of the year-round growing season and the ability to use vertical space to pile vegetables. Because a controlled environment reduces evaporation and allows easier water recapture, vertical farming is projected to use 70–95% less water than traditional agriculture. For this reason, areas with limited water supplies are primary adopters of vertical farming. The UAE is building the world’s largest indoor farm. The country’s dry climate, low soil quality, and occasional locust plagues make indoor farming a more economically feasible alternative. Vertical farms use no soil, little water (compared to traditional agricultural practices), and a combination of natural and artificial lighting. Also, the manufacturers’ strategic activities would further drive the adoption of vertical farming during the forecast period. For instance, companies such as Signify and Valoya are developing better lighting solutions, which would result in decrease in costs of running a vertical farm.
