Microgreens Market Size

The global microgreens market is projected to grow from USD 1.35 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.05 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2021 to 2026.

According to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) studies, microgreens have nearly five times the number of vitamins and carotenoids as mature vegetables. Each microgreen comprises high amounts of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and beta-carotene, as well as minerals like Calcium and Magnesium, and every species of microgreen provides varying degrees of micro nutrient.

The rising use of innovative vertical and indoor farming techniques for farming, as well as increasing awareness regarding the potential of these techniques to resist infection are boosting growth. Furthermore, rising consumer consciousness of environmentally friendly farming techniques to increase yield and productivity of value-added crops while conserving the use of additional resources such as fertilizer, moisture, energy, and space are important factors driving market growth over the forecast period.

The supply chain has indeed been disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the overall food and beverage market has suffered immense economic damage. Due to the sheer interrupted distribution network and shutdown of grocery stores and restaurants, the Covid-19 pandemics impact and lockdown have significantly affected microgreens sales. Nevertheless, as the economy rebounds from the outbreak, desire for microgreens is likely to surge substantially during the next few years.

global microgreens market

Microgreens Market: By Type

Based on type, the market is segmented into broccoli, lettuce and chicory, arugula, basil, fennel, carrots, sunflower, radish, peas, other types. During the forecast period, broccoli is estimated to have a largest share in the market. Broccoli microgreens are a good source of iron that can be grown by individuals, even in urban centers, allowing for greater access to adequate nutrition. As a consequence of the greater nutritional demand from the growing population, the cultivation of broccoli as a microgreen has soared.

Microgreens Market: By Farming

Based on farming, the market is segmented into indoor farming, vertical farming, commercial and greenhouses, among others. The indoor farming mode of cultivation is predicted to have the largest share during the forecast period owing to increased health awareness among consumers to adopt a nutritionally-rich diet. Farmers are not only engaged in indoor farming at home for microgreens, but they widely practice farming in greenhouses too. As a result, the market for microgreens is expected to expand during the forecast period.

Microgreens Market: By Growth Medium

Based on growth medium, the market is segmented into peat moss, soil, coconut coir, tissue paper, among other growth mediums. The peat moss segment is estimated to have the largest share during the forecast period. This is mainly due to its high capacity to absorb moisture and lack of hazardous microbes and ideal for producing microgreens indoors. Peat moss is frequently used for germination, gardening mixtures, and even as a major hydro or aquatic environment.

Microgreens Market: By Distribution Channel

Based on distribution channels, the market is segmented into supermarkets and hypermarkets, retail stores and others. The supermarkets and hypermarkets segment bagged the largest share during the forecast period. High availability of microgreens in such channels is the major driver of the market segment.
