Vertical farming is an innovative technique with architectural design intervention, which minimizes land usage, while still sufficing the fierce demand of food. Vertical Farming is basically indoor agriculture where food grows on trays or hanging modules in Bioclimatic buildings that respond to climate by controlling it. These facilities or buildings create an artificial environment within them and allows certain types of produce to be grown year round without pesticides or natural sunlight. Post harvesting produces can reach to consumers within few hours.

Although, Vertical Farming is a viable form of agricultural practice that supports effective and efficient harvest with only 5% of water usage for five times more the yield, with up to 350 times more greens than conventional farms of similar size, is yet not cost effective. Vertical Farming requires an initial capital investment of $200 to 500 million. Also, one of the biggest challenges associated with Vertical Farming is energy usage cost from the lighting technology, coupled with the cost of purchase and implementation of solar tubes, LEDs, mirrors, drain & sewerage treatment plant, rotational carousels, robotics, sensors, and controlled environments is actually more of a commodity. This factor perhaps may hinder the market growth during the forecasted period. Adversely, increasing investments transpired in to R&D activities by vendors or companies operating to develop with adept technology with unrivalled design and features coupled with technological advancement will provide impetus to the market growth depleting the issues such as federal budgeting etc. during the anticipated period.
