Palm Beach, FL –October 31, 2019 – Every new report on projected revenues for cannabis, hemp and CBD seem to be larger than the last “newest” report. It has been this way for some time now and it appears that it will continue well into the future… and as the overall global revenues increase it also appears that the growth in one sub-sector may well outpace the growth of all other sectors. While cannabis/hemp has been experiencing continued growth, so has the global hydroponics market (across all cultivation categories) and the marriage of both the bodes well for the hydroponics market cannabis/hemp sector growth share of the global cannabis/hemp markets. Hydroponics will become a larger segment in the cannabis/hemp global markets and cannabis/hemp will become a larger part of the hydroponics global markets. The numbers bear this out. According to a ZION Market Research report, the global industrial hemp market was approximately USD 3.97 billion in 2018 and is expected to generate around USD 9.64 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of around 13.5% between 2019 and 2025.

One of the reasons the cannabis/hemp industries will/are embracing hydroponics is that hydroponic systems give growers more control over how and when their plants grow and it gives cultivators more control over the crops they produce. This means higher CBD content, making their plants more valuable. It enhances quality and consistency. Hydroponics is controlled growth, in a controlled facility, indoors, all year long despite seasonal changes… and it conserves the farmland for other crops or uses… and plants have more harvests per year than they would in an outdoor setting. More growth cycles in a given period and higher quality product equal higher profits as well.

It’s part of a multi-step roll-up strategy designed to create the dominant force in this market as we look ahead to a world where hydroponics becomes the difference between success and failure for producers in the rapidly growing market for hemp and hemp-related crops in North America.”
Management notes that the integration of BZRTH implies the vertical integration of ecommerce through ZenHydro.com (and several additional hydroponics ecommerce sales portals) with a 55k sq. ft. fulfillment center and a market leading logistics platform. The Company also continues to negotiate with several other entities to continue to drive its aggressive M&A-based expansion strategy.
Mr. Chan continued, “We plan to continue to be very aggressive on the M&A side. This space is extremely ripe for disruption through consolidation of successful entities. And we have strong momentum right now to snowball this process by combining and coordinating undervalued assets into a single dominant market force that benefits from powerful overlapping growth in ecommerce, hemp, and hydroponics.” Read this and more news for Sugarmade at: https://financialnewsmedia.com/news-sgmd/
