A sub segment of hydro culture, hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil.

Hydroponics involve soil less culture where crops are grown in mineral nutrient solution. Plants that are not traditionally grown in a particular climate condition, are preferably grown in a controlled environment system like hydroponics. Hydroponics method uses two main mediums to grow crops- solution culture and solid medium culture. This method of farming is a niche segment gaining popularity in urban, customized agriculture setup.

Hydroponics is termed as one of the fastest growing soil less farming practice at a global level, wherein a tailored nutrient solution is used for plant growth with a superior quality and sustainable manner. One of the major growth drivers for the hydroponic industry is the documented higher yield in comparison to traditional agricultural techniques. Along with profit farming, growing consumption of exotic, salad crops and increasing need for global food security will drive the market upwards.

Lack of awareness regarding the soil less agriculture system and high initial cost would hinder the market growth to an extent. Increased cultivation of medicinal plants globally and customized farming approach may provide future growth opportunity for the industry.
