Navigant Research Report Shows Global Revenue for the Indoor Farming Market Is Expected to Exceed $2.9 Billion by 2027


Energy efficient cooling systems are crucial to the success of indoor agriculture facilities

A new report from Navigant Research examines market issues associated with energy efficient cooling technologies for indoor agriculture and provides global market forecasts, segmented by technology and region, through 2027.

Trends in the indoor farming market indicate consumers are looking for fresh, nutrient-dense food options with the added convenience of local production. Hurdles such as supply chain logistics and developing a successful business model have made it difficult for businesses to succeed in this industry; however, the industry’s ability to supplement food systems in a sustainable way continues to attract investors, contributing to facilities growth worldwide. Click to tweet: according to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global revenue for the indoor farming market is expected to exceed $2.9 billion by 2027.

“Indoor farming is expected to become increasingly automated as energy efficient technologies gradually replace manual solutions,” says Courtney Marshall, research analyst with Navigant Research. “Catalyzing this shift are climate control systems that include efficient HVAC equipment to support optimal temperature and humidity conditions.”

The removal of heat tends to be an energy-intensive and expensive process, which is why many indoor farming businesses today focus on selecting an efficient conditioning system. According to the report, energy efficient equipment such as fans, unitary systems, variable refrigerant flow systems, and chillers are critical technologies for meeting the cooling needs of controlled-environment agriculture facilities.

This report, Energy Efficiency for Indoor Farming, provides a comprehensive review of energy efficient solutions for indoor farming. The study examines the market issues, including drivers, challenges, and production and facility types, associated with energy efficient technologies for indoor agriculture. Global market forecasts, segmented by technology (unitary systems, variable refrigerant flow [VRF] systems, chillers, and fans) and region, extend through 2027. The report also examines the regional market highlights related to energy efficient solutions for indoor farming, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
