Global greenhouse horticulture market growth driven by increasing food demand, need for healthier and efficient farming techniques, and changing climatic conditions globally
Horticulture originated from the Latin word hortus, which means garden and agriculture. It is the art or practice of cultivation in a garden along with soil management, landscape and its restoration, plant conservation, designing of garden, maintenance, construction, and aboriculture. Greenhouse is a covered and protective house built with plastic, glass, or other transparent materials for the safety of plants from undesired climatic conditions, plant diseases, and surrounding environments, which impacts growth of plants.
As a result of this projected increase in food demand, rigorous and more productive farming practices are required to be used and adopted. However, most agricultural systems may be adversely affected by certain environmental and surrounding conditions. For example, unpredictable natural calamities and unforeseen changes in weather conditions will have a negative impact on agricultural produce. As a result, popularity of greenhouse horticulture has been growing in the recent past, and is expected to continue in future. Preference and demand for plastic greenhouse covers is relatively high in the market, but damage caused by exposure to soluble salts in agriculture water and lack of storage facilities to protect the produce post-harvest are factors impacting adoption of these types of greenhouse covers.
