Horticulture Lighting Market reached US$ XX million in 2021 and is expected to record significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 28.80% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Horticulture lighting activates many kinds of photoreceptors in plants to promote photosynthesis, photomorphogenesis, photoperiodism and phototropism in plants. All plants-including those that produce flowers, fruits and vegetables-need light, water, carbon dioxide and nutrients for survival and growth. Plants need light to catalyze the chemical reaction between carbon dioxide and water, creating the carbohydrates necessary for growth.
For their metabolism to function properly, for active development to occur, for plant quality to be maintained and for maximum yields, plants need enough light. Artificial light sources meet plant growth needs because sunlight's strength and spectrum are frequently variable. The sources can be used in addition to the sun or as the only light source for photosynthetic and photomorphogenic processes.
The rapidly increasing number of government initiatives to encourage the adoption of CEA practices and the rising importance of the farm-to-table concept are all driving the horticulture lighting market forward. However, the high costs required for setup and installation may hamper its growth.
Growing emphasis on the "farm to table" idea
A food philosophy known as "farm-to-table" emphasizes the flavor and nutritional benefits of locally grown, fresh foods. Restaurant operators may need more work to have a reliable supply chain, but the investment may be well worth it. According to a recent Nielsen poll, 51% of consumers prefer to support local businesses dining out. Most farm-to-table restaurants source their vegetables and dairy products from areas between 50 and 200 miles away from the restaurant.
There may eventually be a need for more locally produced goods across a range of markets in the hotel sector. Horticulture lighting is necessary for farm-to-table restaurants to guarantee timely output availability. Even though demand is growing, controlled environment agriculture can still provide food at the desired quality and quantity. Future years are expected to see a greater influence of this factor due to the rising demand for locally farmed food.
Growing acceptance for controlled-environment agriculture (CEA)
The creation of completely controlled settings for plant growth is known as CEA. Artificial systems supply water, temperature, humidity levels, ventilation, light and CO2 for plants at all stages of growth. Crops are grown inside a CEA facility under LED grow lights, with hydroponic systems supplying water and nutrients. To control the best growing climates, heaters, ventilators, dehumidifiers, CO2 enrichment, humidifiers and coolers are used.
With the traceability and integrity required by food supply chains, CEA enables locally grown, quickly-to-market produce that can be purchased and consumed where it is produced. Food may be delivered with uniform quality and quantity using CEA. To preserve fresh food consumer-ready, no preservatives or wax coatings are required.
High installation and setup costs
High-pressure sodium (HPS), fluorescent (FL), metal-halide and electric ballast lights have constraints that LEDs don't have. However, compared to conventional lighting technologies like fluorescent and high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs, the initial expenditure required to buy high-quality LED lights is greater. While some LED grows lights cost around US$100, some are far more expensive. A top-notch, full-spectrum LED grow light can also be installed as the main lighting source for commercial indoor growing.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The globally health issue has increased the popularity of leisure activities, including spending more time with flowers and decorative plants. Access to green spaces in cities is growing due to the COVID-19 recovery plans' recognition of its importance. One of the best hobbies for reducing the detrimental effects of social isolation brought on by COVID-19 on people's emotional well-being was gardening.
During the pandemic, home food production from gardening and foraging had increased, which was good for diet quality and food security. Government and non-government organizations have occasionally donated seeds to the populace during a lockdown to encourage home gardening, particularly in underprivileged and impoverished areas. However, COVID-19 has impacted the whole LED lighting supply chain, from upstream chip producers to packaging and lighting OEMs, due to the emergence and propagation of the virus.
By technology, the horticulture lighting market is segmented into fluorescent, high-intensity discharge, light-emitting diodes and others.
Growing experiments with LED lighting for plant development
LEDs are extremely promising as primary or secondary illumination sources for interplanetary and terrestrial agricultural operations. Due to their small size, durability, long operational lifetime, wavelength specificity, relatively cold emitting surfaces and linear photon output with electrical input current, these solid-state light sources are ideal for plant lighting systems.
Due to the NASA plant growth research employing LED lighting, the light-emitting diode technology is gaining popularity in the horticultural sector. It has potential as a horticultural lighting fixture due to its low energy consumption, cool operation and flexibility to change the spectrum output to emit the specific wavelengths needed by plants.
Food demand in Europe is on the rise
Europe dominates the market for horticulture lighting and this trend is anticipated to remain in the foreseeable future. The summers of 2017, 2018 and 2019 provide evidence of dramatic disparities in weather conditions across Europe, based on the press release of the European Association of Fruit and Vegetable Processors on the impact of climate change. According to the European Environmental Agency's 2019 study, the impact of climate change might cause a loss of up to 16% in agricultural revenue in the EU by 2050. European farmers will have to use organic and cutting-edge farming techniques, such as horticulture lighting, to preserve sustainable agriculture.
Local LED lighting manufacturers are also developing a broad line of horticulture items and growing their network of collaborators. European farmers use new kinds and cutting-edge technology to lengthen their growing season. For instance, strawberries are often always accessible, despite being substantially more expensive in the winter. Their availability is maximized by greenhouse production and various early, mid-season and late cultivars.
The Hungarian lighting technology business Tungsram has decided to increase its knowledge of commercial strawberry farming. The company has sealed up with University of Reading, one of UK's most renowned horticulture-related higher education institutions, to examine the benefits of using LED lighting for strawberry development.
The top horticultural lighting companies are increasing their market share by introducing new products, forming business partnerships or acquisitions. For instance, the European Commission approved the acquisition of Osram by the Austrian optical sensor maker AMS in July 2020, stating that the combination would not threaten competition in the European Economic Area.
