Hydroponic Substrate Market: Overview

  • Hydroponic substrates are various types of soilless grow media that are used in hydroponic systems to anchor plants’ roots
  • In a hydroponic system, plants are grown directly in a water-based, nutrient-enriched solution. There is no soil used at all. However, plants still need some sort of support for their roots. Thus, plants are supported by hydroponic substrates. These hydroponic substrates provide roots with a point at which they can attach. Hydroponic substrates help foster better aeration and retain moisture.
  • Various substrates are used for hydroponics. Inorganic substrates include rockwool, perlite and vermiculite, and clay pellets. Coir and peat moss are the common organic substrates.
  • Rockwool is one of the common substrate options. It is made from natural stone that has been melted and then spun into filaments.
  • Coir is another common type of hydroponic substrate. It is made from coconut husks and can be purchased as blocks or bricks. It offers good water retention and is completely biodegradable.
  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the hydroponic substrate market for the forecast period from 2021 to 2031, rise in demand for hydroponically grown fruits and vegetables is a key factor that is expected to boost the global hydroponic substrate market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global hydroponic substrate market is estimated to reach US$ 1.44 Bn by 2031. The hydroponic substrate market is likely to expand at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period.

Increase in Demand for Vegetables and Fruits: Key Driver of Hydroponic Substrate Market

  • Growth in urban population and rise in income of the people have augmented the demand for food products, including hydroponically grown fruits and vegetables. Farmers across the globe are modernizing their farming techniques and using the hydroponic system to enhance the yield in order to meet the rising demand for food and increase their farming incomes. This is expected to drive the hydroponic substrate market during the forecast period.
  • Hydroponic farming allows year-round food production without the loss of yield due to climate change or weather-related events. It also eliminates the need for large-scale use of pesticides and herbicides. This is projected to boost the demand for hydroponic substrate during the forecast period.
  • The new trend of home decoration and hydroponic gardening that includes wide variety of edible plants such as herbs; veggies such as spinach, beans, lettuce, and bell peppers; and some berries such as strawberries and blueberries are grown indoors with hydroponic substrates all year round, regardless of the climatic changes. This is expected to drive the global hydroponic substrate market.

Rockwool Holds Major Share of Hydroponic Substrate Market

  • Based on type, the rockwool hydroponic substrate dominated the global hydroponic substrate market in 2020, as rockwool substrates are chemically inert. This means they do not bind any nutrients or chemicals, as can be seen in non-inert substrates. Rockwool is a clean product, with no pollutants or harmful bacteria. It does not lock up or release any substances, ensuring all water and nutrients are available to the plant. It is easy to control and steer the growth of the crop to achieve higher yield than in soil-bound cultivation. Inert characteristics of rockwool allow growers to improve fruit and produce quality while reaching maximum yields. This makes rockwool a suitable medium for growing plants hydroponically and is one of the widely used hydroponic substrate. This is driving the global hydroponic substrate market.
