Grow tents are portable structures employed to grow plants under controlled environment. Grow tents are used as grow rooms, where plants are grown with soil or without soil, by means of hydroponics (the method of growing plants without soil) and aeroponics (the method of growing plants in air). Grow tents come in different shapes and sizes depending on the need, but they have a few things in common. For example, their structure is sealable with zippers and they have reflective material for spreading proper light inside. Small-sized grow tents are used for roof gardening and horticulture, whereas large-sized tents are employed for growing plants throughout the year. Grow tents are primarily used in conditions wherein there exists no alternative for indoor growing or if plants require specific conditions and environment to grow. Grow tents offer high yields. This method of gardening does not depend on the external environment and it utilizes minimal space. However, it requires proper lighting throughout the year through artificial lighting.
The grow tents market is expected to expand at a considerable pace in the near future. Preference for organic farming is one of the primary factors driving the market. Grow tents enable the consumer to grow plants and crops indoor by using hydroponics. The method utilizes mineral nutrient solutions as water and it does not use any harmful pesticides or chemicals. This method reduces the amount of time and efforts required. Moreover, increase in urbanization and decrease in arable land have led to shift in focus toward farming by using grow tents. Countries such as Japan and South Korea, where free space is a major concern, have formulated favorable policies for greenhouses with grow tents. Similarly, countries in the Middle East have favorable policies for greenhouses, as their climate does not support farming. Furthermore, legalization of Cannabis farming in several countries for medical and recreational reasons is anticipated to drive the grow tents market in the next few years. Cannabis farming requires adequate temperature, lighting, and environment. Hence, in countries where cannabis farming is not favorable, it can be achieved only by using grow tents. However, lack of awareness, high setup cost, and shortage of skilled labor are expected to restrain the grow tents market during the forecast period. Several countries such as India, where agriculture is a major source of GDP, lack organic farming due to lack of awareness. Additionally, the initial setup cost is very high, due to high expenditure on proper lighting, ventilation, etc. This is likely to hamper the grow tents market during the forecast period.
Incorporation of new technologies and products is the latest trend in the grow tents market. Players operating in the grow tents market compete with one another in terms of product line and product features. For example, players such as Gorilla Grow Tent have introduced height adjustment features in their grow tents, due to which they are considered to be one of the strongest solid interlocking metal frames. Moreover, increase in research and development of grow tents is another trend on which commercial firms and biotech companies are focusing. Popular firms such as California Vegetable Specialties Farm in Rio Vista, California (the U.S.) use completely dark environment to grow plats inside grow tents. Toshihiro Sakuma in Tokyo, Japan uses fluorescent lights in greenhouses.
