Major shift towards preference for hydroponic vegetables

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.

Growing in Zimbabwe

The ability to inspire women in Africa is certainly for us, one of the most humbling & rewarding aspects of what we do every day here at NFT Hydro.

For one such women who took inspiration and embarked on a Hydroponic Growing journey, with her dream to become a commercial scale grower, you simply cannot resist but to admire Venencia. With no prior experience or knowledge of growing Hydroponically, failing for her was simply not an option especially when you have passion and determination that runs this deep. With her mantra of ‘‘try, try and try again until you succeed” this growing journey is one to watch very closely in Zimbabwe. Growers like Venencia is crucial for the food security of her home country, but even more so because she is planting the first seeds for others to become the change in the way we GROW in Africa.

Growth in the Hydroponics Food Industry set to outpace Global Markets by 80%

Hydroponics or C.E.A. (Controlled Environment Agriculture) – is an industry that has enjoyed continuous growth throughout its history but in the past year we have seen a significant surge in growth on an international level and also in pockets of Africa. Surprisingly, Zimbabwe has stepped into the world of hydroponics and we are very proud to say that NFT Hydro play a significant part in the bringing food security back to this country.

That said, despite significant water shortages and a severe drought that plague most of South Africa, there is an underlying reluctance for to the uptake of Hydroponics in comparison  to what is unfolding on an international level.   However, younger South African growers buck this trend and take up rooftop farming and urban farming creating a new generation of growers that will hopefully over time contribute to the growth of the Hydroponics industry in a country that could significantly benefit from it.
