The Middle East Vertical Farming Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 18.76% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27, says MarkNtel Advisors in their research report. The Middle East’s demographics and macro factors are the primary drivers of the market. In addition, the government’s effort to boost local food production is encouraging both local & international players to invest in the market.

Moreover, to decrease food import dependency, the Middle Eastern countries are focusing on different ways to fuel their domestic food production by participating in modern agriculture methods like vertical farming. Further, extreme climatic conditions and the rising consumer demand for locally produced green vegetables are other crucial factors driving the market, further states the research report, “Middle East Vertical Farming Market Analysis 2022.”

Demand for Hydroponics to Register the Fastest Growth Rate through 2022-27

Hydroponic is the technique wherein food is produced without using soil. In this technique, plants are grown using the mineral solution in water inserted around the plant roots. The water crisis in the Middle East region is the most prominent factor contributing to the rising demand for hydroponic methods. The hydroponic mechanism eliminates the risk associated with soil organisms causing diseases. In addition to this, it is a cost-effective technique compared to other growth mechanisms and offers comparatively more return–on–investment.

Further, in case of a power outage, plant-growing using the hydroponic mechanism can survive for a longer time since it can constantly provide water & nutrients. It is unlike the Aeroponic growth mechanism in which plants can die within an hour due to malfunctioning of mist spraying nozzles. Hence, these aspects are leading to the fastest growing demand for the Hydroponic growth mechanism.
