The global Smart Greenhouse market was valued at 504.96 Million USD in 2020 and will grow with a CAGR of 10.32% from 2020 to 2027. Smart greenhouse is based on the vision of a greenhouse that would maintain a perfect micro-climate for a particular crop being cultivated inside. It would be perfectly tailored to the vegetation inside to maximize its efficiency.
In some regions, smart greenhouse is also the best choice for water saving due to the advanced irrigation system. In recent years, people also access to electric power through solar-photovoltaic technology. .
Smart greenhouse has cognitive abilities to sense its surrounding environment and either use or block certain features to maintain the micro-climate. Such environment variables that are most important for crop are air temperature and soil humidity level.
Control systems get information through specific sensors and compare it with set value to judge whether or not to change the state of HVAC system and irrigation system. Generally, a smart greenhouse should have several components like control system, HVAC system, irrigation system, growing light and others.
