Impact of COVID-19 on Grow Lights Market

The key companies manufacturing grow lights were affected due to the pandemic as it was difficult to obtain light-emitting diodes (LED) and other components from stakeholders. The operation carried out for the production of growing also got halted due to the unavailability of manpower during the initial days of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global grow light market trends can be observed in the revised CAGR of 8.2%, dropping down from 8.6% in the pre-pandemic years. However, there were some positive impacts as well.

The supply chain of perishable items such as food was the worst affected sector during the years of the Covid-19 outbreak. It inspired many entrepreneurs to establish indoor farming in the urban cities and outskirts. The establishment of such commercial greenhouse farming is anticipated to revive the global grow light market and make it a highly remunerable business during the forecast years of 2022 to 2032.

Sales Analysis of Grow Lights from 2017 to 2021 Vs Market Outlook for 2022 to 2032

“International and national emphasis in the direction of developing sustainable agricultural management is poised to create a huge market for controlled farming methods directly benefitting the global grow light for plants market.”

The growing trend of precision farming to conserve soil, water and light have resulted in the establishment of an artificially controlled environment for growing and producing food crops in unsuitable areas. Light being the energy source for the process of photosynthesis, needs to be supplied by a full artificial spectrum led to grow lights inside the chamber.

The electronics and semiconductor market players manufacturing light-emitting diodes(LED) bulbs are targeting this demand for producing plant lights that can be used for such purposes. With the growth in demand for food products, the grow light market sales are estimated to grow exponentially in the future.

National and regional governments across the world are trying to encourage new start-ups to revive the agricultural sector by reviving the uplink and downlink market chains for perishable fruits and vegetable products. Such increasing support is anticipated to drive the grow light market supplying the grow lamps for indoor greenhouse chambers.

What are the Limitations for the Growth of Global Grow Light Market Players?

“Absence of sufficient infrastructure to limit market growth.”

As the majority of farm producers in the world are traditional farmers, so they lack proper knowledge about the use of plant Light for better yields. Moreover, a major portion of farmers also belongs to lower-income categories, which makes it difficult for manufacturing companies to penetrate the market for led grow lights at high prices.

The semiconductor appliances market in various regions, particularly in developing economies, lack sufficient infrastructure for quality assurance. In the long run, it can pose a major challenge for the market players to scale up their full spectrum led grow lights in these markets.

Another major limitation for the growth of the global grow light market is the availability of raw materials. As the semiconductor supply is concentrated in distinct regional markets, such as South East Asia, it translates into higher production costs of light-emitting diodes and other associate components for the market players in other regions.
