Horticultural Lighting: Introduction

  • Horticulture is a branch of agriculture that deals with plants, garden crops, fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. Horticulture lighting is an artificial light source used to facilitate photosynthesis.
  • Horticultural lighting is segmented based on offering, technology, lighting type, cultivation, applications, and region.
  • Horticultural lighting is designed for various applications such as greenhouses, vertical farming, and indoor farming
  • Changing climate and increasing population across the world is generating additional demand for food, which is difficult to be met only through conventional farming. Rising awareness about indoor farming, and government initiatives to support the adoption of energy-efficient LEDs in horticulture is expected to boost the global horticultural lighting market throughout the forecast period.

Rise in Demand for LED Lights

  • In terms of technology, the LED lights segment is likely to see the fastest growth in the global horticultural lighting market throughout the forecast period due to the rise in demand for LED lights for horticultural lighting.
  • LED lights segment is anticipated to dominate the global horticultural lighting market throughout the forecast period due to the unique properties of LED lights. These lights are energy-efficient, produce low heat, are compact, have a huge life span of up to 50,000 hours, provide cool operation, and have the capability to customize the spectral output to emit the specific wavelengths which are usable by plants.
  • Moreover, LED technology is gaining popularity in the horticultural sector due to NASA, which is continuously working on plant-growth experiments under LED lighting.
  • In June 2019, the leading lighting company Signify, launched Philips Green Power LED top lighting compact, which provides a replacement for HPS lighting that fits seamlessly in existing HPS set-ups and trellis constructions.
  • In July 2019, Osram Licht AG launched a horticulture LED line with broader white and purple spectra. This purple LED delivers red and blue spectral energy conductive to photosynthesis.
  • The high cost of energy-efficient LED lights, the need for various light spectrums for certain crop varieties, and the feasibility of cultivating a limited number of crop species are the restraining factors of the horticultural lighting market. However, retrofitting traditional lighting sources with LED grow lights and rising awareness about vertical and indoor farming creates lucrative opportunities for key players of the horticultural lighting market.
