DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/szp93f/vegetable) has announced the addition of the "Vegetable Factories Market in Japan 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Vegetable Factories market in Japan to grow at a CAGR of 25.75% over the period 2013-2018
A vegetable factory is a facility that aids in steady production of high-quality vegetables by artificially controlling the cultivation environment (such as light, temperature, humidity, CO2 concentration, and culture solution). The control over the internal environment enables vegetable factories to produce vegetables about two to four times faster than through traditional outdoor cultivation. In addition, the use of multiple cultivation shelves (a multi-shelf system) facilitates the mass production of vegetables in a small space, reducing the requirement of cultivation land.
One of the major trends is an increase in the adoption of LED as a source of lighting in Japan. LEDs are energy efficient and help vendors cut production costs.
According to the report, increased government support is one key factor contributing to the growth of the market over the past few years. The Japanese government is promoting the use of vegetable factories by providing funds and allocating a significant portion of the budget for the promotion of vegetable factories in the country.
Further, the report states that the high cost of lighting is one major factor affecting the market revenue. Only appropriate light sources help plants grow and be productive. Insufficient lighting conditions may affect the overall expected yield of vegetable factories.
To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the following product segments:
- Factories Operating on Only Artificial Lights
