Indoor farming is a part of modern agriculture for growing crops in a protected environment. The market for Indoor farming is increasing globally catalyzed by the rising world population and a consequent demand for building secure and consistent food supplies. Conventional agriculture is locationally tied to areas with sufficient land and water. As the amount of vacant arable land and water to support conventional agriculture is dwindling, the demand of indoor farming is increasing as it is decoupled from such needs and can be located closer to end consumption.

The scarcity of land for farming across the world is one of the primary factors catalyzing indoor farming growth. As the global population continues to develop and urbanize, farmers are opening indoor facilities closer to these urban areas creating a local, stable, and sustainable year-round food supply. In addition to this, the increasing instances of droughts, floods, and other natural disasters across the globe have raised concerns over food security. This, in turn, has prompted the growth of indoor agriculture in such countries. Moreover, high-tech, fully controlled, and semi-automated greenhouse facilities in rural areas and its environmentally friendly farming practices have also driven the market demand for indoor farming. Furthermore, the growth in technological advancements in farming sensors, monitoring, and regulating devices for each aspect of cultivation has further propelled the growth of this market. Additionally, this technique enables food production in a sustainable surrounding without chemical pesticides, hence increasing the production for organic yields, which is currently in strong demand from the consumer end.
