This new industry research report from Technavio analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Growing legal marijuana market

The legalization of marijuana cultivation for medicinal as well as recreational purposes in smaller scales across the globe will fuel the growth of the LED market. The use of marijuana for medical purposes is increasing at a rapid pace, as it helps cure muscular pains, seizures, and spasms. Pharmaceutical companies across the globe are applying for a license to grow marijuana legally for medical and research purposes. The method of indoor farming of marijuana in controlled facilities under proper lighting systems will boost the demand for LED lighting across the horticulture sector.

Unfavorable weather and climatic conditions

The adverse climate and weather conditions impact the nutritional value of the crops. The climate variability affects all components of crop production including cropping area, intensity, and yield. The traditional farmers are switching over to horticulture to ensure increased profit and high yield. The demand for LED lighting products is driving by the horticulture sector for sustainable plant growth.

Growing demand for floriculture

LED lighting supplements natural illumination and provides the specific light spectrum and density needed to produce floriculture crops with specific attributes at specific times of the year. Cut flowers are the major floriculture crops that are sold across the world. The other variant of floriculture crops include live whole flower plants, flower bulbs, and cut foliage. The increasing demand for floriculture crops for decorating consumers’ houses during festivals and celebration events will lead to the growth of this market segment.
