Aquaponics Market: Overview

Aquaponics is a food-production method that combines aquaculture (the breeding of aquatic animals in tanks) and hydroponics (the growing of plants in water), in which nutrient-rich aquaculture water is delivered to hydroponically grown plants, where nitrifying bacteria convert ammonia to nitrates. Because all aquaponic systems are based on contemporary hydroponic and aquaculture farming techniques, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponic system can differ just as much as any other system found in a different agricultural field.

Because aquaponics is free of artificial fertilizers and crop protection chemicals, and fish waste serves as the principal nutrition for plants, the demand for organically grown crops has huge potential and an unexplored market for emerging aquaponic farms and aquaponic system vendors. 

COVID-19 Impact:

Businesses, their manufacturing, and production units have been experiencing functional challenges since the first cases of the coronavirus pandemic were identified and are now considering ceasing operations and shutting down the firm. Customers from all around the world are adopting healthier lifestyles and selecting healthier food options in order to improve their health. As a result, this tendency is projected to promote the growth of the aquaponics market share. This is because the methods used are environmentally friendly, and the veggies are organic, therefore meeting the needs of a bigger audience.

The government is also taking initiatives such as launching awareness programs to encourage people to eat organic veggies and disseminating correct information about their benefits and nutritional value. The government is also putting in place programs to help startups that are involved in the production and transportation of organic veggies. The major market participants are also devising novel ways to aid in the manufacturing of innovative products and their widespread distribution.

Aquaponics Market: Growth Drivers

Free from any interference of harmful fertilizers or pesticides

There are no toxic fertilizers or pesticides present in the aquaponics culture's produce. The World Bank's Fertilizer Price Index is forecasting an upward trend. The fish waster, which grows in water solvents, is a wonderful natural fertilizer for these veggies. This also helps to cut down on the costs of using fertilizers in large-scale production. Furthermore, no expensive equipment is used, implying that the market is profitable in the long run.

Aquaponics Market: Restraints

Competition from hydroponics and vertical farming

Agricultural techniques such as hydroponics and vertical farming are causing a surge in the use of sustainable agricultural methods. This is offering a significant hurdle to the market's expected growth over the forecast period, which ends in 2028.

Aquaponics Market: Segmentation

The global aquaponics market is segregated based on type, component, equipment, application, and end-user.

By Application, the global market is classified into Fish, Herbs, Fruits, and Vegetables. Fish has the largest market share and is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the projected period. The need for this segment is being driven by reasons such as rising global population, changing lifestyles, and increasing seafood demand for human consumption.

By Equipment, the global market is classified into Pumps and Valves, Water Heaters, Fish Purge Systems, Aeration Systems, Water Quality Testing, and Others.  During the projected period, the others (grow lights for plants) category will have the biggest market share. The demand for this category is being accelerated by factors such as growing indoor farming and increasing utilization of grow lights in indoor farming.

Recent Developments

  • April 2021- France-based indoor farming company Les Nouvelles Fermes raised EUR 2 million (approximately USD 2.4 million) in its first round of funding by the investors from IRDI, the Banque des Territoires, Crédit Agricole Aquitaine and the CIC. The company has plans to build the largest aquaponic farm in Europe, with this funding.
  • 2019- Superior Fresh, the Midwest's premier aquaponic produce provider, has increased the size of its greenhouses from 6 to 13 acres and the size of its aquaculture facility from 40,000 to 100,000 square feet.

Regional Landscape

Because of the increasing use of modern farming techniques and the growing demand for organic food, the North American area has the largest market share in the worldwide aquaponics industry. The Asia-Pacific region has the second-largest market share in the aquaponics industry, thanks to ongoing technological advancements. Furthermore, increased demand for improved agricultural productivity in countries such as China and India drives the business. The European region has the third-largest market share in the aquaponics market due to the presence of a well-established infrastructure. Furthermore, easy technical process adoption was followed by an increase in per capita income. Due to rising demand for low operating costs combined with high yields, the aquaponics industry is expanding in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.

Methodology

Free Analysis

Aquaponics stands for raising aquatic plants and aquatic animals together in a symbiotic environment. It is a sustainable form of farming plants and fish together in a beneficial way. Fish waste contains a lot of nitrates and ammonia which are beneficial for the plant. Nitrates and ammonia are good fertilizers for the plant. But nitrates and ammonia are harmful to fishes if it remains in water in large quantity. Plants in aquaponics can consume all the nitrates and ammonia and purify the water.

Growing population and increasing demand for food are expected to impact positively the global aquaponics market. Moreover growing demand for vegetables and organic fruits is expected to drive the demand for aquaponics in near future. Improvement in the adoption of new urban farming methods and demand for off-season availability of fruits & vegetables is expected to fuel the market growth over the years to come. In addition, low cost of production, time, lower transportation & storage cost of food and higher margins are other beneficial factors for the aquaponics market growth. However, high price of initial system setup & installation and unavailability of skilled labor required for aquaponics is expected to hinder the market growth within the forecast period. Nonetheless, technological advancement in farming and innovative steps towards environmental sustainability offer a vast opportunity for the industry participants in aquaponics market.
