Vertical Garden Construction Market Research: 2032

The Global Vertical Garden Construction Market Size was valued at $1081.7 million in 2022, and is projected to reach $2468.3 million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2023 to 2032. In a vertical garden, plants are planted in pots, or other hydroponic growing media, and are allowed to grow vertically on the wall or on other support structures. These are especially useful in urban settings where space is at a premium, and having a conventional horizontal garden would be expensive. Vertical gardens can be planted inside or outside the building and help in enhancing the appearance of the building’s interior as well as exterior. It also helps in reducing the carbon footprint of the building, as the plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.

Market Dynamics

The global population is growing at a rapid pace, and therefore, the demand for buildings and other infrastructure is increasing. To make space, in order to build these structures, builders have to cut plants, and trees and disturb the delicate balance between flora and fauna. However, with the growing awareness regarding how these human activities are negatively impacting the earth’s sensitive environment, people across the world have begun planting plants and trees, and demand for green gardens in building complexes has also increased.

With the acceptance of living with nature and having a sustainable lifestyle, the demand for plants and vegetation in homes, offices, hospitals, shopping malls, and others, is increasing at a greater pace. Looking at the growing popularity, architects and engineers are making gardens a part of their designs. However, the fact that land is expensive and is required to construct buildings and other structures for the rapidly growing population cannot be overlooked, and gardens are therefore considered a primary priority.

Thus, as a solution, architects are now designing buildings with vertical gardens, where the plants are grown on a vertical structure that does not take up extra floor or land area. Vertical gardens can be located inside the building on a wall or on a freestanding structure. For the exterior application, vertical gardens are allowed to grow on the façade walls of the buildings.

Moreover, the building sector is responsible for more than 35% of the global CO2 emissions, and private and public entities are therefore working tirelessly to reduce their emissions by restructuring the building sector to build sustainable buildings. For instance, the government of Germany has introduced various laws, policies, and regulations, for the construction and conversion of all building stock to carbon-neutral buildings by 2050. Thus, building developers adopt vertical gardens on the exterior of the building to make it more energy-efficient, as the extra layer of plants over the exterior wall work as insulation, which prevents the interior of the building from heating up. Wall surface temperatures in a temperate zone can be decreased by up to 12°C and ambient temperatures (up to 2m away) by as much as 4°C. A single layer of leaves on a wall can reduce solar radiation by up to 37% and five layers can do the same, reducing it by up to 86%.  This eventually reduces 20% of electricity consumption by the air conditioning system. This greatly helps in reducing the carbon footprint of the building. In addition, a vertical garden façade on a building also helps in enhancing its exterior appearance. Such factors positively affects the vertical garden construction market outlook.

However, maintaining a vertical garden, especially the ones that are used for enhancing the façade of the buildings is expensive as it requires skilled workers and specialized equipment, this is anticipated to restrain the vertical garden construction market growth.

Moreover, technological and other developments in the vertical garden construction industry are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for players that operate in the vertical garden construction market. For example, two companies; Rastegar Property Company and a green wall manufacturer named Zauben have collaborated to make technologically advanced vertical garden for a building in New York. The garden will have sensors to monitor soil health and other aspects of the garden to maintain it better at a relatively lower cost.

The demand for vertical garden constructions decreased in 2020, owing to reduced construction activities due to lockdowns imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the shutdown of the construction and home renovation industry across the world, leading to a halt in demand for vertical garden constructions. This hampered the growth of the vertical garden construction market significantly during the pandemic. The major demand for vertical garden constructions was previously noticed from major countries, including China, the U.S., Germany, Italy, and France, Canada, and other countries having high disposable income. These countries were negatively affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for vertical garden constructions.

However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic reduced significantly. This has led to the full-fledged reopening of businesses involved in the vertical garden construction market and led to increased activities in the construction sector. Furthermore, it has been more than two and a half years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery. Contrarily, during the beginning of 2023, the number of COVID-19 cases surged again, especially in China, which had an unfavorable impact on the vertical garden construction market for a short duration.

Thus, businesses involved in manufacturing and sales of vertical garden constructions must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to any looming threat of COVID-19. For instance, as of April 2023, COVID-19 cases are rising in India. In addition to COVID-19, another global event; worldwide inflation, driven by Ukraine-Russia war has also negatively affected the construction and mining sector.

Segmental Overview

The vertical garden construction market is segmented on the basis of type, garden type, application, and region.

By Type:

The vertical garden construction market is divided into indoor vertical garden wall, and outdoor vertical garden wall. In 2022, the outdoor vertical garden wall segment dominated the vertical garden construction market, in terms of revenue, and the same segment is expected to grow with a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing use of vertical gardens as building façade over large buildings. In addition, outdoor vertical garden walls also help in reducing the temperature of the building by shielding the exterior wall from sun radiation. In addition to this, having plants outside can reduce the risk of plants death owing to lack of sunlight. In addition, the indoor vertical garden wall is also popular in hotels, office buildings, hospitals, and other such places.
