Market Snapshot

The Horticulture Lighting Market is expected to grow at 19.17% CAGR, witnessing substantial growth during the forecast period. The market was valued at USD 2476.5 Million in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 7040.0 Million by 2024.

Horticulture is a branch of plant agriculture dealing with garden crops such as fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. Horticulture lighting is an artificial light source that is used to facilitate photosynthesis. This process is very useful in areas where there is a lack of proper sunlight. Lack of sunlight or any other source of light required for photosynthesis renders the plants weak and unable to grow.

Europe accounted for the largest market value of USD 797.8 Million in 2018; the market is expected to register a CAGR of 18.58% during the forecast period.

Based on technology, the market has been classified as fluorescent lighting, high-intensity discharge, LED, others. The high-intensity discharge segment accounted for the larger market share in 2018, with a market value of USD 904.7 Million during the forecast period. The fluorescent lamps constitute the second-largest segment. Fluorescent lighting is a technology that depends on a chemical reaction inside a glass tube for creating light. High-intensity discharge (HID) is a type of gas-discharge lighting method that uses electrical current sent across two electrodes within plasma or ionized gas. LED is a highly energy-efficient lighting technology and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting.

Rapid population growth and availability of limited arable land, government investments, and initiatives and increased year-round high-quality yield are factors that are expected to drive the horticulture lighting market during the forecast period. However, high capital cost associated with LED grow light technologies is expected to limit the market growth during the forecast period. Further, the adoption of vertical and indoor farming can offer a number of opportunities for the global horticulture lighting market during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis

The Global Horticulture Lighting Market, by region, has been segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Europe is expected to dominate the horticulture lighting market during the forecast period due to growth in city farming along with the advancement in technology.
