Growth Drivers & Challenges

Hydroponics is profitable and sustainable agriculture method of growing plants without soil. With the help of proper nutrients, plants grow faster and healthier in a hydroponics system. Owing to hydroponics system’s environmental benefits, the governments are offering subsidy for hydroponics all over the globes. For instance, In India, government is promoting hydroponics through offering subsidy for growing fodder through hydroponics. Additionally, increasing government spending on food grown locally is also expected to foster the growth of global hydroponics market in upcoming years. Apart from this, crops grow two times faster in hydroponic gardening and with hydroponics the same type of crop could get better yield compared to traditional agriculture methods. This is primarily due to shorter growth cycles of hydroponics in comparison to traditional agriculture. Further, high growth yields of hydroponics are also a key factor that is likely to drive the growth of market across all regions. The hydroponics also offers some environmental benefits as compared to traditional farming methods. Hydroponics uses 1/20th of water of traditional methods. This low water usage advantage of hydroponics is expected to emerge as a driving factor for the hydroponics market over the forecast period.

Apart from this, the arable land area worldwide is reducing at critical rate. Through hydroponics a person can make better use of space and location. Further, this space savings benefit of hydroponics is likely to boost the growth of market in future. Hydroponics is an efficient way to handle the world hunger crisis. Current world population of 7.3 billion is projected to grow to 8.5 billion by 2030, creating a need for greatly increased food production capacity. In addition to this, since 1998, food production costs have increased 57% and purchased input costs have increased 74%, but there has been no significant change in aggregate value of net farm income in the last 40 years. The hydroponics is expected to emerge as a key solution to such problems in future. However, it could be expensive to setup the hydroponics system as the initial set up cost of hydroponic system is high. Also these systems require constant supervision. Such obstacles are expected to hamper the growth of global hydroponics market in future.
