Published Date: September, 2017
Global agricultural films market is expected to grow at a CAGR between 6.0% and 6.5% over the period of 2017 – 2023. Agricultural films are plastic materials utilized for various agricultural applications. Agricultural films helps farmers to attain better agricultural productivity and crop quality through conservation of nutrients in soil, pest repellency, prevention of weed growth, reduction of use of herbicides, prevention of soil erosion, source protection, thermal protection and water management. Some of the agricultural films are recyclable or biodegradable. Agricultural films are ideal alternative for storing the agricultural produce and materials. Agricultural films find applications in greenhouse covering, fumigation, humidity controlling, low tunneling, mulching, packaging & protection, silage, soil sterilization, water reservoirs and others. Decreasing availability of fertile land for cultivation and increasing demand for food products are the major factors that drive the increasing demand for the agricultural films globally.

Global agriculture films market is characterized by continuous research and development and leading players such as BASF SE, The Dow Company, Berry Plastic Corporation, and British Polythene Industries among others are investing heavily on R&D on agriculture films. The development of bio-degradable plastic agricultural films is expected to revolutionize the industry. Asia Pacific region is the largest and the fastest growing agricultural market, due to increasing demand for food products and agriculture infrastructure development. Latin America agricultural films market is witnessing significant growth, due to the adoption of new farming techniques in countries such as Argentina and Brazil.
Decreasing fertile cultivable lands, increasing demand for food products to cater huge population, necessity to improve the yield of crops are major factors that drive the growth of the global agricultural films market. LLDPE is the major material used for manufacturing of agricultural films. Due to the superior flexibility and moisture prevention capabilities, LLDPE segment is expected to drive the growth of the agricultural films market. Due to the advanced properties such as durability, efficient light transmission, flexibility, mechanical, optical, resistance to crack, stress and UV radiations, EVA segment of agricultural films is anticipated to garner highest growth during the forecast period. Due to the superior properties of the silage films to reduce the food spoilage to minimum and increasing costs of feed is expected to drive the growth of the silage segment of the agricultural films market. The disposal of used non-degradable agricultural films is a major restraint for the global agricultural films market. The strict regulations set by various governments for the use of plastics and polythene is anticipated to negatively impact the growth of the global agricultural market. Availability of eco-friendly alternative materials for agricultural films is a challenge to the major players in the global agricultural films market. However, plastic based biodegradable agricultural films are expected to provide growth opportunities for the market players during the forecast period.
