Led grow light module markets at $395 million in 2014 are forecast to reach $1.8 billion by 2021. Rapid growth is anticipated as green house and plant factory growers find the LED grow lights improve agriculture.
Worldwide markets for LED Agricultural Grow Lights are growing as units support more efficient indoor growing. The LEDs are less costly than alternatives and save significantly on electricity costs.
Worldwide markets for LED Agricultural Grow Lights are growing as units support more efficient indoor growing. The LEDs are less costly than alternatives and save significantly on electricity costs. Rapid adoption of LED lighting in general is occurring. Rapid adoption of LED grow lights worldwide is occurring as systems provide peak growing efficiently.
LED grow lights are more powerful and efficient than the older generation high-pressure sodium and metal halide bulb grow lights. They lower the electricity bill and produce less heat. Less heat allows putting the light closer to plants, the plants do not get burned.
Next-generation LED grow lights deliver dramatic power savings and unmatched product reliability. They offer low power, high-efficiency, uniform light pattern, homogenous light distribution at precisely the right wavelengths and color ratios needed for superior photosynthetic response.
LED grow lights are different. Grow lights provide artificial light used for plant growth. The spectrum of growth lights is tuned to the plant growing task. Plant light has photons from the blue to red (400–700 nm) part of the spectrum. This is called growth light. Horticulture lamps address the role of light in the growth and development of plants. Plant growth is a function of photosynthesis.
The plant growth lights work in three different ways:
- To provide all the light a plant needs to grow
- To supplement sunlight, especially in winter months when daylight hours are short
- To increase the length of the “day” in order to trigger specific growth and flowering
LED grow lights use growth light to automate and control growing. The ability to grow food consistently, locally represents a major breakthrough for humanity. Growth lights permit people to grow food in warehouses and in the home, dedicating unused space in a manner that is efficient for producing food.
