Impact of COVID-19 on the Indoor Farming Robots Market

Indoor farming is a process of growing crops or plants indoors on a large or small scale. It involves methods such as hydroponics & aquaponics and uses artificial lighting for adequate nutrient and light levels. Indoor farming robots are designed for plant inspection, harvesting, and seeding, and consist of 3D cameras that can scan modules placed in front of them and gather information, to perform particular operations. Robots used in indoor farming, help in holding, tightening, controlling, and releasing objects, and function similar to a human hand. Moreover, AI-based robots help to improve crop quality and detect diseases and pests in plants. These benefits of using indoor farming robots are expected to boost the growth of the market.

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has had a global impact. The use of robots has significantly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic to boost the production of food grains for meeting the increasing demand for food, and to help contain the spread of COVID-19 by minimizing physical contact between people. These robots are supporting farmers during an acute shortage of laborers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the agriculture industry is investing significantly in discovering new ways to increase agricultural production by using artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, which can limit human involvement and protect human health amidst the pandemic. The use of robots is expected to increase after the lockdown, owing to the unavailability of workers and the need to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the limited number of workers.
