India Indoor Farming Market to be Dominated by Retail and Supermarket Segment through 2028

Limit land availability and increasing local grown produce is expected to drive the growth of India indoor farming market in the forecast period, 2024-2028.

According to TechSci Research report, “Indoor Farming Market - India Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2018-2028,” the Indian indoor farming market is anticipated to grow at an impressive rate in the forecast period, 2024-2028. The demand for locally grown produce is one of the key factors driving the growth of indoor farming in India. Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the quality and safety of their food and are looking for ways to support local farmers and reduce their carbon footprint. Indoor farming offers a solution to these concerns by providing fresh, locally grown produce year-round, without the need for long-distance transportation.

The demand for locally grown produce is particularly strong in urban areas, where consumers have limited access to fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Indoor farming allows farmers to grow produce in urban areas, which reduces transportation costs and ensures that consumers have access to fresh and healthy food.

In addition, indoor farming offers several other benefits that are attractive to consumers. For example, indoor farms can use sustainable growing practices, such as organic or pesticide-free farming, which appeal to consumers who are concerned about the environmental impact of agriculture. Indoor farms can also produce crops without the use of soil, which reduces water usage and eliminates the need for harmful fertilizers.

Overall, the demand for locally grown produce is a key driver of the growth of indoor farming in India. As consumers become increasingly concerned about the quality and safety of their food, and as urbanization continues to drive demand for locally grown produce, it is likely that we will see continued growth in this sector in the coming years.

Indoor farming allows for greater control over the growing environment, reducing the risk of contamination from pests, pathogens, and environmental toxins.
