Hydroponic Crop Farming
Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Hydroponic Crop Farming industry has maintained positive growth. During the five-year period, industry revenue has been supported by rising vegetable prices. In addition, extreme weather conditions damaged many crops for fresh field farmers, so grocery stores and farmers' markets quickly turned to hydroponic farmers to meet their demand. Revenue is projected continue to increase over the five years to 2022, albeit at a slower rate. Poor weather conditions are projected to increase downstream purchasers' reliability on hydroponic farmers and raise vegetable prices causing revenue to rise. Mexican imports will pose a small threat to the domestic industry, as the country increases its hydroponic farming capabilities. Nevertheless, as consumers increasingly purchase locally grown produce, imports will not pose a substantial threat.
