The global greenhouse horticulture market size is predicted to reach over USD 50 billion by 2028. Rising need for extending the cropping season in order to feed the growing population and protect them from adverse climatic conditions and pests has aggravated the demand for greenhouse horticulture.
Production of horticulture crops within a protective environment to provide protection from extreme weather conditions and pests is the basic concept of greenhouse horticulture. Each greenhouse can control the external parameters such as light, humidity, temperature, and carbon dioxide emissions, thus, providing an optimum growth supporting environment for the crops.
Plant cultivation is dependent on various aspects such as soil quality, availability of water, and changing climatic conditions. Modern greenhouse setup is also known as controlled environment agriculture (CEA). With the development of a greenhouse, it becomes possible to nurture food-producing plants at places and protect them from fluctuating and extreme temperature conditions that would damage or even inhibit their overall growth.
Increasing involvement of various governments and other associations in the research and development is expected to boost the global greenhouse horticulture market during the forecast years. For instance, Wageningen University based in Netherlands, is actively involved in the development of sustainable greenhouse horticulture crops.
Technological development by the key players operating in the industry is also acting as a key driver of the global greenhouse horticulture market. For instance, IRIS, a robotic scouting system uses sensor technology, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to detect diseases and pests in the horticulture produce. Use of LED lighting for sustainable crop solutions is another important trend impacting the market growth.

Greenhouse gardening is the process by which agricultural crops are produced in controlled surrounding environment. Greenhouse acts like a shelter that provide the crops with custom surrounding environmental conditions for growing. Most of the structures of greenhouses are made of plastic and glass and other materials. It enables crops to be protected against pests, diseases and varying weather conditions. Greenhouse horticulture production is much more advantageous than traditional cultivation techniques and offers healthier and safer food. This is one of the major positive factors influencing the greenhouse horticulture demand.
Currently, greenhouse market is witnessing lot of traction due to its considerable use in food production throughout the globe. Some of the food crops widely grown in greenhouses include tomato, cucumber, and sweet pepper. Other crops include vegetables like zucchini, lettuce, eggplant, snap beans, celery, watermelon, muskmelon, summer squash, cabbage, radish, Welsh onion, and asparagus.
Greenhouses ranges from original houses with minimal climate control (oven and shutters) to contemporary 10 ha (25 acres) or above, multipurpose greenhouses with highly technological climate control systems. Powerful heating system, evaporative cooling pads, exhaust fans, roof winds, thermal / shadow curtains, PC controls, light sensors are the key control systems in advanced greenhouses.
Plastic and glass are the widely adopted covering materials. Glass is expected to be the most potential covering material in the coming years. Glass is witnessing increased adoption across cold climate regions of Europe and North America. Resistance to ultraviolet radiation prevents the degradation of glass, thus, leading to the development of rapid number of greenhouse installations in Europe.
Based on application, the ornamentals segment is projected to offer massive growth opportunities during the forecast period. This category captured over 35% share of the greenhouse horticulture industry in 2020. The high revenue generation potential of this segment is assisted by the rising significance of floriculture. Floriculture, which includes cut flowers, various potted flowering plants, herbaceous perennials and foliage plants accounts for the largest share in the ornamentals segment. Growing consumer demand for flowers for various purposes including gifts and personal use (decoration) and funerals is expected to augment the demand of this segment during the forecast period.
In 2020, Europe dominated the global greenhouse horticulture market owing to the rapid greenhouse cultivations across Europe. Cultivation of ornamentals is a key driver for the economic growth of Netherlands. The country enjoys a leading position in greenhouse cultivation and vegetable exports across the globe. Favorable climatic conditions coupled with sustained innovation in technologies and use of modern techniques in greenhouse horticulture cultivation, are some of the other factors which has rendered it as the world leader in global greenhouse horticulture market.
