Global Grow Light Market – Analysis and Forecast (2025 – 2030)

Industry Insights by Technology (High-Intensity Discharge, Fluorescent, Light Emitting Diode, and Others), by Spectrum (Partial Spectrum and Full Spectrum), by Installation (Retrofit and New Installation), by Application (Indoor Farming, Turf and Landscaping, Vertical Farming, Research, Commercial Greenhouse and Others)

Industry Overview

The Market For Grow Lights is projected to increase from $1.2 billion in 2023 to $5.6 billion by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 19.8% from 2025 to 2030. The widespread use of indoor culture and vertical farming for the production of crops is expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the grow light industry worldwide.

Grow Light Market

Grow light technology is very helpful in extending the duration of natural daylight, which further accelerates plant development and yields. The crop is made available all year thanks to artificial lighting, which includes high-pressure sodium, plasma, and LED lights. Also, the growing public awareness about the use of alternative farming in many established and emerging economies is projected to accelerate market expansion.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Technology

The market is divided into high-intensity discharge (HID), light-emitting diode (LED), fluorescent, and others, based on technology. High-intensity sodium lamps, ceramic metal halide lamps, metal halide lamps, combination MH and HPS lamps, and other lights are further subdivided under the umbrella of HID. Additionally, fluorescent is further divided into T5 and CFL (white light and neutral). During the forecast period, the HID category is anticipated to see the highest CAGR in the market.

Insight by Installation

The grow lamp market is divided into retrofit and new installation, based on how they were installed. Between the two, the retrofit installation category is expected to contribute a bigger share to the market during the projection period. When grow lights fail or become damaged, as well as when the light intensity falls below expectations following regular use of the lights, retrofit installations are typically done. Crop growers modify existing grow lights with new lights of any particular technology to attain this goal of giving their crops enough light to grow.

Grow lights should be immediately retrofitted when the amount of light is reduced, according to observations. Ad plasma, LED, and induction is just a few of the cutting-edge grow light technologies that have lately entered the market and given crop growers a range of options when it comes to updating their grow light systems. Additionally, LED grow lights provide a wide range of spectrums that make it possible to grow a variety of crops. As a result, they are gaining popularity among crop growers, which, in turn, is boosting the growth of the grow light market.

Insight by Spectrum

The market is divided into the partial spectrum and full spectrum, on the basis of the spectrum. During the projected period, the partial spectrum category is expected to witness faster growth. The partial lights, which emit light of a specific spectrum like blue, yellow, or green, are very helpful at different stages of a plant's growth. The full spectrum lights, on the other hand, emit light that is comparable to that of the sun and are very helpful for the growth of crops at different stages. Thus, the full spectrum category holds the larger share in the market.

Insight by Application

The market is categorized into indoor farming, vertical farming, commercial greenhouse, turf and landscaping, research, and others, based on application. Among these, the vertical farming category is expected to experience the quickest CAGR throughout the projected period. Vertical farming uses controlled environment agriculture and artificial lighting techniques to allow the growth of several plants inside a single, constrained structure, such as a building or shipping container. Commercial crop growers are using these structures to produce fruits and vegetables year-round in urban settings.

This farming method guarantees fresh produce at affordable costs, and it may be used to generate significantly more income from underutilized real estate structures. Additionally, because of all these benefits, the market for vertical farming is anticipated to rise quickly in the near future, supporting the expansion of the global growth light market.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The demand for grow lights in vertical and indoor farms around the world is being driven by the rising consumer demand for a steady food supply as well as increasing popularity among users of LED grow lights. These factors, along with the surging need for vertical and indoor farming techniques that extensively use grow lights to speed up crop production, are all driving up demand for grow lights. Additionally, government bodies of several developed and developing countries are encouraging commercial growers to adopt LED lights to permit efficient and consistent operations, which is further contributing to the expansion of the global grow light market.

Another significant element propelling the grow lights market around the world is the rising need for growth chambers for grow lights. With the rapidly growing population across the world, agriculture and natural resources are constantly declining. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates that in order to feed the world's population for the next 40 years, food production must rise by 70%. Additionally, it has been noted that a variety of contemporary farming methods, including vertical farming, will be effective in meeting this always-rising demand for food, ultimately promoting the expansion of the grow light business.


The primary obstacles impeding the growth of the grow light industry are the implementation of several strict rules to evaluate the quality of crops grown under grow lights and the poor quality of light emissions provided by artificial lighting.

Industry Ecosystem

Industry participants in the worldwide grow light market are taking advantage of market expansion through the creation of new products, technological advancements, business expansion, and contacts, in order to improve their market share.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, Europe has accounted for the most market revenue because of the rising public awareness of the value of alternative farming, limited access to arable land, and constantly growing populations. These factors are projected to fuel the growth of the grow light market in the region.

In addition, the APAC market is expected to witness significant growth, as a result of the surging adoption of agriculture technologies. Additionally, a number of emerging nations in this region place a strong emphasis on the development of crops utilizing LED lights, which promote agricultural production efficiency and require less energy. Also, grow lights are replacing the typical incandescent light bulbs in this area, as these lights assist to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
