Increasing expenditure on premium food products is expected to drive the growth of the global microgreens market in the forecast period, 2023-2027.
According to the TechSci Research report, “Microgreen Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027”, the global microgreen market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate in the forecast period, 2023-2027. This can be ascribed to the changing consumer behavior towards healthier food alternatives that are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Additionally, the decreasing growing incidences of soil erosion due to the widespread use of agrochemicals, overgrazing, floods, and deforestation, among others, have led to a lot of land degradation and the creation of barren lands which are not suitable for growing crops. This has created the need to grow crops, fruits & vegetables using alternative techniques, thereby boosting the growth of indoor farming techniques. According to United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, every year an estimated around 24 billion tonnes of fertile soil is lost due to erosion which is equivalent to about 3.4 tonnes lost every year for every person on the planet. Globally around 3.2 billion people are affected by land degradation, especially rural communities, and small farmers. The world population is expected to increase by about 35% reaching 9.74 billion in 2050. All these statistics clearly indicate the need of alternative farming techniques which can produce healthy and high-yielding crops, fruits & vegetables, etc. Majorly used alternative farming techniques used are hydroponics, aeroponics, greenhouses, etc. Microgreens are majorly grown in these alternative setups. This in turn is expected to create opportunities for the growth of the global microgreens market.
However, the high initial infrastructure development cost for setting up indoor farms, hydroponics, aeroponics setups, and greenhouses, among others can restrain market growth, especially in developing countries.
