The 2016 horticultural lighting market (i.e. system level) represented a business of about US$3.1 billion, which should grow to approximately US$3.8 billion in 2017, according to Yole Développement and PISEO's report Horticultural LED Lighting: Market, Industry, and Technology Trends. The current business is mostly driven by greenhouse applications and incumbent technologies, representing respectively 92% and 79% (in revenue) of the total market in 2017. However a transition to LED technology and the emergence of new applications will further increase this market’s size and attractiveness, both at system and LED device levels.

Osram’s venture capital arm, Fluxunit, has acquired a stake in Canadian startup Motorleaf, an artificial intelligence company focused on bringing actionable, data-driven insights to greenhouse and indoor farm operators. Motorleaf’s hardware and software support and strengthen the human and environmental aspects of greenhouse production, helping to predict accurate harvest amounts in a tight-margin industry. By providing a digital agronomist, Motorleaf’s yield prediction tools help greenhouse operators meet contract obligations, better plan weekly operations and forecast production capacities in real time. “We see strong potential in leveraging advanced data analytics to further optimize predictability and performance of production in commercial greenhouse and indoor farm production,” said Ulrich Eisele, Managing Director of Osram’s Fluxunit.
