DUBLIN, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4c7g97/global_smart) has announced the addition of the "Global Smart Greenhouse Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global smart greenhouse market to grow at a CAGR of 17% during the period 2016-2020.
A smart greenhouse is equipped with interconnected devices to control sunlight, temperature, and humidity depending on the type of crop. The control system collects data from various sensors and transmits it for analysis to reduce production losses. The environment inside a smart greenhouse can be changed, modified, and analyzed remotely, and this is advantageous when such greenhouses are spread across regions.
According to the report, technological innovations have led to the development of floating and solar-powered greenhouses that generate their own power, thereby reducing carbon emissions significantly. They use artificial intelligence devices, sensors, and controls for irrigation, automation, and control of the environment, which increase efficiency and output.
Further, the report states that producing crops in a controlled environment is capital and labor intensive, as the installation of a smart greenhouse is expensive. Apart from building a greenhouse, users have to install interconnected sensors; lighting, heating, cooling, and control devices; and software to control climatic conditions for efficient production. This makes users reluctant to invest in smart greenhouses as the ROI is negligible. The premium prices of technology and installation hinder the use of smart greenhouse technologies.
