Key Insight of Agriculture Films Market

Asia Pacific to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to have the most significant agricultural film market share. Key factors favouring the growth of the agriculture films market in the Asia Pacific include the high growth rate of population, increasing food production capability, the limited area under cultivation, and the increasing demand for controlled agriculture practice. China is the leading country in the region, and thus most of the significant producers are present.

The high-density polyethylene segment is expected to augment the market during the forecast period.

The film type segment is divided into linear low-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene, reclaim, EVA/EBA, polyamide, polypropylene, PVC and others. The high-density polyethylene segment is expected to augment the market during the forecast period. High-density polyethylene films are used for multi-applications in the agriculture industry. These films are used for irrigation pipes, pesticide nets, etc. The excellent impact strength and high resistance against corrosion make it favourable to be used in crop production.

The mulch films segment will likely grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The application segment is divided into mulch films, greenhouse films, geomembrane films and silage. The mulch film segment further includes black mulch, transparent or clear mulch and others. The greenhouse films segment further includes low tunnels, macro tunnels/walking tunnels and conventional greenhouse films. The silage segment further includes silage bags, silage sheets and silage stretch wrap. The mulch films segment will likely grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Mulch films control the soil temperature, prevent the loss of moisture, and improve the overall yield of crops. The thickness of the film is suitable for protection applications.

The online segment will likely grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The distribution channel segment includes online and offline. The online segment will likely grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing number of e-commerce presence in developed and developing countries. The agriculture films are sold in bulk in B2B and B2C platforms.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Rising adoption of agricultural films

The agriculture film industry is booming in developing regions, and thus the demand for agriculture films is increasing. The films help in preserving the nutrients and moisture content of crops. The lifespan of plastic films is enhanced by the addition of thermal stabilizers, anti-fogging agents, etc. Irrigation systems and greenhouse facilities use agriculture films to reduce the hail effect. It even helps to minimize soil erosion and increase agricultural output production by limiting weeds’ growth. These agriculture films are a low-cost solution for the protection of crops. Crop quality is essential for maintaining a healthy population. Protected agriculture practices are increasing faster, and thus, many end-users prefer to use different films as per their properties. Commercial agriculture practices involve producing high output with limited land.

Restraint: Inefficient in some areas

There are some specific regions with high growth of weeds alongside the crops. In such regions, agriculture films, especially mulch films, are not much efficient in protecting crops. These films are not able to suppress the growth of weed in such a situation. Thus, mulch films have a limited growth rate in these regions.

Opportunity: Growth of biodegradable films

There are severe environmental contaminations caused by conventional plastic films primarily due to the issue with their disposal. The development of environmentally sustainable agriculture films is a pressing research topic. The rapidly raised demand for environment-friendly agriculture films in the past few years is anticipated to remain the same in the upcoming years. Also, the shifting preference against environment-friendly agriculture films due to intense climate modifications opens an opportunity for industry participants. Additionally, environmental security awareness & governmental regulations have mandated the usage of eco-friendly agriculture films. Several benefits are associated with using bio-degradable agriculture films, including reduced water usage for irrigation, elimination of pesticides and improved quality of crops. This factor is charting the trajectory of the agriculture films market.

Challenge: Stringent regulations for conventional plastic films

European countries have laid strict guidelines on using agricultural films that are not biodegradable. This factor has affected the preference for conventional agriculture films among the end-users. Also, the non-standard policies have led to variations in the demand and supply of traditional agriculture films. Thus, the demand for such films has been affected in countries like the U.K., Germany, France, etc.
