The diverse horticulture market offers incumbents, startups, and universities opportunities to collaborate on scalable solutions
A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market potential for horticultural lighting, with a focus on light-emitting diodes (LEDs), providing forecasts for lamps and luminaires, segmented by horticulture type, building type, technology type, and region, through 2027.
By offering greater energy efficiency and better crop yields, improvements in LED technology are providing growers larger profits as well as other benefits. Leveraging a growing indoor farming market, today’s lighting manufacturers are providing tunable solutions of LEDs that support plants during different stages of the grow cycle, allowing farmers to monitor every known influence on the crop’s well-being, and encouraging further adoption. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global luminaire revenue for horticultural applications is expected to reach $3.8 billion by 2027.
“Market growth in horticultural LED applications has helped lower installation costs for luminaires, driving further adoption for LED technology,” says Courtney Marshall, research analyst with Navigant Research. “This feedback loop between more affordable prices and greater adoption rates has created a market environment marked by innovation and experimentation as vendors look to upgrade their offerings with quality research.”
While the industry’s lack of an existing one-size-fits-all approach can be a market challenge, it also presents an opportunity for collaboration among incumbents, startups, and universities to provide customers with proven and scalable lighting offerings. According to the report, by taking advantage of the academic space to conduct controlled experiments, vendors can increase credibility and may also discover successful lighting applications that could speak to an audience as diverse as the horticultural market.
