Dublin, Feb. 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "U.S. Commercial Greenhouse Market Forecasts from 2023 to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

A commercial greenhouse is a controlled environment designed for the cultivation of plants, vegetables, flowers, and other crops. It provides optimal conditions for plant growth and allows for year-round production, independent of external weather conditions. Consumers' increasing demand for fresh produce year-round, regardless of seasonal limitations, has driven the growth of commercial greenhouses in the US.

Strong Presence of Supermarkets

The strong presence of supermarkets and hypermarkets in the region accelerates the market expansion by diversifying their offerings by sourcing unique greenhouse-grown products that appeal to niche markets and attract discerning consumers. For example, the retail sales of organic fresh fruits and vegetables reached $19.2 billion in 2021 as per the USDA data. Further, according to the Organic Trade Association, conventional and natural food stores and chains account for 88 percent of organic sales.

Growing Demand for Sustainably

The growing preference for environmentally friendly food and an increasing desire for fully organic produce is a key factor propelling the U.S. commercial greenhouse market growth. For instance, organic food sales in the United States increased by a record 12.8% to $56.6 billion in 2020 according to the Organic Trade Association's 2021 Organic Industry Survey. Additionally, as per the same source, fresh organic vegetable sales increased by approximately 11% to $18.2 billion. Over 6% of food sold in the United States wascertified organic.

Increasing Demand for Fruits and Vegetables

According to the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) report 2021, greenhouse tomatoes and lettuce-protected culture areas grew by 23% and 28% respectively in 2019. The presence of major supermarket and hypermarket retail chains in the U.S. also supports the growth of the commercial greenhouse market. Furthermore, the rising demand for local food is making commercial greenhouses a possible method for harvesting both greens as well as flowers and ornamentals, thus positively impacting the growth of the commercial greenhouse market in the country.

Government Regulations

Growing demand for sustainably grown food coupled with booming healthy lifestyle adoption is one of the major drivers of the commercial greenhouse market growth in the U.S. Additionally, strict regulations like FFDCA (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act), ESA (Endangered Species Act), and FQPA (Food Quality Protection Act of 1996) in the U.S. regarding the use of pesticides are also augmenting the demand for commercial greenhouses to grow plants and crops sustainably and efficiently.

Numerous Underlying Factors

There are other factors as well that are driving the growth of the market such as the changing consumer preferences followed by the introduction of enhanced crop management. Consumers are increasingly seeking fresh, locally grown produce that is available year-round. In this regard, greenhouses are considered imperative in providing a controlled environment that enables consistent and high-quality production of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, even in the off-season.

Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies such as hydroponics, vertical farming, automated climate control systems, and data-driven decision-making has significantly boosted the efficiency and productivity of greenhouse farming. These technologies enable better resource utilization and streamline operations
