Growing Greens Locally: Navigating the Challenges and Opportunities of the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Market
As the demand for fresh, locally sourced greens rises, more brands are entering the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) market to meet this need. While this expansion contributes to a more competitive landscape, it also raises concerns about the possibility of market saturation.
The entry of numerous players in the CEA space, driven by consumer preferences for high-quality, locally-grown produce, has the potential to cause an oversupply of fresh greens in the market.
In addition, the growing presence of new brands can lead to increased competition, which may drive prices downward and impact profitability for existing companies, especially smaller operations needing to catch up with more extensive, well-established firms.
