There's no doubt that the CEA sector is going through a lot these days, but there was barely a sign of that at the Indoor AgTech. When asking around on the exhibitor floor, numerous projects came by. Various greenhouse and vertical farming companies set their eyes on the North American market, and without a doubt, there are many opportunities to be reaped.
Yet, on the European side of things, there are also multiple projects in the works on the greenhouse and vertical farming end. Though to stay realistic, when speaking to some greenhouse suppliers, they claimed to have seen stagnation in projects as investors have been extra cautious about their spending. According to them, that's because vertical farming is often generalized together with the greenhouse industry, as it's mostly called CEA.
However, Canada and the United States are still proving to be the largest markets where projects are happening for all CEA methods as the need is growing increasingly for domestic production. Keep an eye out for articles that will be published about these upcoming projects!
