Bharat Book Bureau Provides the Trending Market Research Report on “Latin America Vertical Farming Market Outlook, 2027” under Food & Beverage Market Research Report Category. The report offers a collection of superior Market research, Market analysis, competitive intelligence and Market reports.
Beyond providing fresh local produce, vertical farming could help increase food production and expand agricultural operations as the world’s population is projected to reach 9 billion by 2050. Also, by the same year, it is expected that two out of every three people will live in urban areas. Producing fresh greens and vegetables close to this urban population could help to meet the increasing food demands across the globe. Vertical farming offers a sustainable and environmentally responsible way of life for the upcoming enhanced lifestyle. In Latin America, the market is projected to expand as the consumer demand for organic foods is being complemented by rising disposable incomes and a growing population. Further, increasing penetration of technology advancements in the vertical farming industry across Latin America, which will bring down the overall cost, is forecasted to direct the market towards higher momentum. For instance, AgroUrbana was the first vertical farm established in Latin America with its 3000 square foot pilot facility located in Santiago (Chile). Furthermore, Latin America is planning to replicate this farm on a larger scale (30,000 square feet). This new facility will allow AgroUrbana to increase its output by twentyfold and will fuel the higher market growth. AgroUrbana currently produces lettuce as a house mix. It will soon be launching kale and basil, and it has experimented with strawberry production.
According to the report titled "Latin America Vertical Farming Market Outlook, 2027", the vertical farming market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 15.58% from 2022 to 2027. Better yield with lower requirement for space, shorter growing time, less water usage, a gassy product, and superior organic taste are some of the major driving forces for the Latin American vertical farming market. The Latin American vertical farming market is segmented into three prominent countries, including Brazil, Argentina, and Columbia. Among these countries, Brazil is estimated to lead the Latin American vertical market during the forecast period. Brazil is considered to be one of the largest markets across the region, followed by Argentina and Columbia.
Vertical farming companies have arisen in all of the main Brazilian metropolises. Embrapa is the main agricultural research agency in Brazil that has been researching mineral nutrition management for hydroponically grown vegetables. In addition to that, Brazil has abundant land resources and vegetable production is more strongly limited by climate conditions than land availability. According to research, in the city of Sao Paulo alone, there are at least three vertical farms. Also, Brazil is mainly known for its vertical farms. It is based on the concept of using innovative technology to grow food "up" rather than "out," bringing fresh and local production to urban areas with less impact on the environment. Currently, Pink Farms is growing micro-greens, which are sold directly to the consumers.
According to the report, Latin America's vertical farming market is segmented into three growth mechanism types, including hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. Among these types, the hydroponics segment is anticipated to lead the market during the forecast period with more than 56%. Growing awareness about the environmental impacts of traditional farming as well as water shortages has directed the market towards the hydroponics growth mechanism. Further, the market is segmented into two structure types, including building-based vertical farms and shipping container-based vertical farms. Among these types, the building-based vertical farm segment is projected to occupy the largest portion of the market share during the forecast period. However, shipping-container based farming is anticipated to grow at a rapid compound annual growth rate in the Latin American vertical farming market by 2027.
From corporate agricultural production systems to small and medium-scale farm households, all types of farming systems were heavily impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. The various government-implemented measures, such as reduced mobility, closure of public and private venues, and a halt in production units, had varying degrees of severity. Imposed lockdown situation resulted in a major drop in revenue generation as well as disrupted supply chains for vertical farming instruments. However, staying at home has changed the mindset and preference of many consumers and has directed them to organic food consumption. Such factors are expected to propel higher market growth during the forecast period in the Latin American vertical farming market.
