Another report titled Plant Factory and Grow Lights Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018 forecasts the plant factory grow light markets to reach $4 billion by 2018. Growth is driven by the need to provide inexpensive, safe and consistent food supplies. Automated process provides more efficient production of fruits and vegetable crops. According to the lead author of the study, "Plant factories use growth light to automate and control growing. The ability to grow food consistently, locally represents a major breakthrough for humanity." Grow lights permit people to grow food in warehouses and in the home, dedicating previously unused space to a purpose and in a manner that is efficient for producing food. Plant factory grow light markets at $741.6 million in 2011 are anticipated to reach $4 billion by 2018. Growth is driven by the need to provide inexpensive, safe and consistent food supplies. Automated process provides more efficient production of fruits and vegetable crops.
