Farming has evolved owing to the increasing population and rising demands of consumers. Producers are continuously looking for methods to grow more produce by using lesser resources and land. Vertical farming is one of the latest methods of growing plants by stacking them one above another in a closed and controlled environment. Vertical farming is a method where all the environmental aspects are controlled, and the production takes place vertically in structures of stacked layers such as shipping containers, skyscrapers, or warehouses. Vertical farming is emerging as the solution to meet the rising food demands of an increasing population amidst reducing availability of fertile land. This is particularly relevant in today's world as climatic change, erratic rainfall and soil erosion are major concerns in most arid parts of the world. Expanding global population and the rising demand for a variety of foods and crops is necessitating focus on alternative farming conditions as supplements to traditional cultivation. The indoor plantation method is also an ideal way to keep the farm products protected against inclement weather conditions as they are safe inside walls and sheltered environment. Rising incidence of heart diseases, obesity and other life-threatening diseases is also driving consumers to seek healthier options, thus presenting opportunities for vertical farming market. The concept of vertical farming is garnering significant attention during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has triggered the demand for locally-grown foods. Vertical farming offers organic fruits and vegetables while consuming less land and water in comparison to traditional agriculture. Innovations and technological advancements in the field of vertical farming in recent years are likely to aid market growth. Light, humidity, and nutrient sensors are being used to monitor growth of crops. Further, automation is being introduced in vertical farming to standardize quality, to reduce production and distribution costs and to cut down marketing time. However, indoor farming entails a huge initial expenditure including labor, technological and electricity expenses.
