Read the brief on Global Greenhouse Horticulture Market 2012-2016
TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global Greenhouse Horticulture market to grow at a CAGR of 10.1 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the rising demand for food. The Global Greenhouse Horticulture market has also been witnessing growing research and development in the Greenhouse Horticulture sector. However, the lack of cold storage facilities could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
According to the report, the rising demand for food is one of the major drivers in the Global Greenhouse Horticulture market. The demand for food is expected to increase by 100 percent by 2025. Intensive farming methods should be used to meet this increased demand for food; however, most agricultural systems can be negatively affected by certain environmental conditions. For instance, unpredictable natural calamities and unexpected changes in weather conditions will negatively affect agricultural output. In such a scenario, greenhouse horticulture gains importance because it allows the production of crops at a manageable temperature using a minimal amount of water. Hence climatic changes and lack of water do not have a huge negative impact on greenhouse horticultural produce. Thus, the production of crops through greenhouse horticulture will help to meet the rising demand for food. This is driving the growth of the Global Greenhouse Horticulture market.
