The Important Factors of the UAE Vertical Farming Market 

Vertical farming represents a technique of processing food, including in a skyscraper utilized factory or shipping container, which is done in vertically stacked layers. Indoor farming methods and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technologies are utilized for modern vertical farming methods in which the environmental conditions can be controlled. It makes the land more useful for crop production as it is a non-traditional technique of crop cultivation that offers advantages like the negligible effect of climate, better yield, use of fewer pesticides, minimal area requirement, and limited water consumption.

Vertical farming offers a higher yield than conventional farming, which is one of the major reasons for its growing popularity. The utilization of micro-climate technology within the container or greenhouse helps the plant to receive the optimal heat, humidity, and light as per the requirement of the crop. Moreover, plants are stacked in trays on a vertical farm, enabling farmers to produce enough food in a confined space.

However, the high cost set up of vertical farming systems and lack of awareness regarding alternative farming practices in underdeveloped regions may create challenges for the market growth in the forecast period.
