Horticulture Lighting Market Trends

  • Growing demand for indoor farming for a huge range of applications to boost market growth

The growing demand for cultivating nutritious and healthy food at home is increasing across the globe. Indoor farming is gaining popularity in the increasing urban areas to meet the demand for food scarcity. As per Investor's PitchBook, in the last quarter of 2021, more than 11 indoor farming venture capital firms were funded around USD 489.6 million, which was more than 7%, corresponded to the last quarter in 2020. Consumers around the globe are prioritizing the enhancement of the horticulture sector to meet the food scarcity demand and promote horticultural exports globally. In addition, the rapid improvement of lighting technology with higher luminaire efficiencies is gaining the potential to enhance the horticulture lighting market CAGR across the globe in recent years.

Further, growing urbanization brings the opportunity for horticultural production to satisfy the food demand, which is expected to boost the market growth for horticulture lighting. Also, agricultural practitioners are adopting horticulture farming owing to the absence of availability of irrigation water for farms and increased food prices. As per the US Department of Agriculture, the Consumer Price Index raised by 8.5% in July 2022. This CPI and food prices expanded by 1.1% from June 2022 to July 2022, and food costs were enhanced by 10.9% in July 2021. Further, the delivery of horticultural products to urban areas is growing owing to rising consumer demand for natural and healthy foods

Additionally, Increasing adoption and development of environmentally friendly and energy-efficient LEDs in horticulture to maximize crop yield and reduce energy consumption drives the market growth. According to the Design Lights Consortium Organization, the efficiency of sustainable indoor farming could save up to around USD 240 million of energy annually through horticultural lighting optimization.

However, the increase in demand for horticulture lighting systems in vertical farming applications to set up efficient operations is another factor driving the growth of the horticulture lighting market revenue.

Horticulture Lighting Industry Developments

November 2023: The acquisition of Arize horticulture lighting products from Current Lighting Solutions, LLC was announced by Acuity Brands, which said that it has struck an agreement to purchase these products. At the same time, the firm will continue to maintain a distribution partnership with Hort Americas, which is located in Texas, for the aim of ensuring that Arize products are sold and supported across the North American region.

"Acuity Brands will be in a position to significantly increase our product offering to the fast developing controlled environment agricultural sector as a result of the addition of these high-powered, greenhouse-focused luminaires to our range of horticulture lighting. Tony Gineris, vice president and general manager of industrial and outdoor lighting for Acuity Brands Lighting and Lighting Controls, stated that the company will be able to take advantage of its expertise in lighting and controls to assist growers in increasing their productivity while simultaneously reducing their energy consumption. This will be possible because of the company's ability to take advantage of its expertise in lighting and controls.

The purchase of Arize solutions by Acuity is comparable to the purchase of Fluence by Signify, which took place after ams Osram made the decision to withdraw from the CEA lighting product market. Both acquisitions took place after the CEA lighting product industry was officially finished. Fagerhult Group, which is based in Sweden, has just placed its under-the-radar horticultural lighting business on hold owing to the small profits it has been producing. This decision was made because of the company's recent financial situation. While Acuity is relatively new to the CEA business, having released its Verjure brand of full-spectrum horticulture luminaires at the beginning of 2022, Signify has a well-established market for its grow lights that were branded with the Philips name. Signify's grow lights were marketed under the Philips name.

February 2023: Chromacity lately announced a strategic collaboration arrangement with Edmund Optics for the supply and sale of its ultrafast lasers worldwide recently at Photonics West. The announcement is timed to the debut of Chromacity's newest 920 nm-emitting ultrafast laser. The global channels & optical imaging network of Edmund Optics will actively market and disseminate the line of fixed wavelength femtosecond lasers from Chromacity. One of the top manufacturers and suppliers of optical, imaging, and photonics-enabled technologies for the semiconductor, security, biomedical, industrial inspection, and R&D industries is Edmund optical.

November 2022: 'Time-lens' developed by Harvard SEAS produces ultrafast laser pulses. Harvard's John A. Paulson SEAS researchers have created a high-performance, on-chip femtosecond pulse generator utilizing a device known as a "time lens" that looks to be right out of science fiction. The size of pulsed lasers that emit intense, brief bursts of variously colored light has remained high. They chose to employ a cutting-edge integrated photonics platform which they have built to scale down a well-known method used to realize traditional — and enormous — femtosecond sources in order to make these sources more practical.

July 2022: A distinguished Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award was given to Associate Professor Jie Qiao to improve the field of ultrafast laser material processing. To create innovative optical components and integrated photonic circuitry, Qiao creates ultrafast laser systems & techniques. She will collaborate on research involving ultrafast lasers in the gigahertz range, which use incredibly brief light pulses for the non-contact material removal. According to Qiao, this might revolutionize the way that materials are cut, drilled, welded, polished, and structured for use in semiconductors, medical devices, sensors, and other technologies. Qiao expects it will act as a spur to enhance gender parity in the laser, optics, and photonics industries. It is possible to fine-tune material interaction process & eliminate the heating impact using a laser that emits 1 billion pulses per second.
