Growth Drivers in the AgTech Space

AgTech funding has increased year-over-year between 2018 and 2021 from $1.1 billion to $4.9 billion.

Changing perspectives on the importance of how food is produced is a major driver in the agtech market. Millennials especially are increasingly encouraging companies to find innovative methods of food production (like vertical farming).

Rising disposable income, urbanization, and the aforementioned changing habits have majorly driven demand for agtech applications in China, India, Brazil, and the US.
