The global hydroponic vegetables market has witnessed impressive growth due to rise in the production of hydroponic vegetables. The growing awareness about the advantages of this form of cultivation over traditional farming has been propelling the global market. Hydroponics save water, land, use lesser fertilizers, and are a simple solution to problems of climate change. Owing to these advantages and more, the global hydroponics market is likely to be worth US$12,106.5 mn by the end of 2025 from US$ 6,934.6 mn in 2016.
Increasing awareness regarding these risks is driving demand for crops and vegetables that are cultivated in a safe and controlled environment. Hydroponic plants are an ideal choice in this scenario as lack of soil in hydroponic systems eliminates the need for soil. Moreover, the increasing rate of urbanization in developed regions is expected to cause a major shift towards preference for hydroponic vegetables.
