Agricultural films are gaining importance with the advent of high technologies in agriculture and emphasis on higher productivity per hectare. High growth in global population is one of the biggest challenges for the agriculture industry, which has led to increased focus on agricultural productivity. The major purpose of using agricultural films is high sustainable production on limited arable land. The use of agricultural films for controlled agriculture has helped in increasing the yields on the limited arable land with limited irrigation water. The three major applications of agricultural films are greenhouse, mulch, and silage.
The arable land is decreasing gradually with drastic increase in urbanization. Controlled agriculture becomes important in order to utilize significant resources like water for irrigation in an optimum manner. This is consequently increasing the importance of controlled agriculture in greenhouse, high tunnel, and mulching.
The report segments the global agricultural films market with respect to applications - greenhouse, silage and mulch, polymer types - low density polyethylene (LDP), linear low density polyethylene (LLDP), and high density polyethylene (HDP), EVA/EBA, Reclaim, and others and by geography - North America, Asia, Europe and ROW.
The applications market is further studied with respect to its sub segments which include greenhouse- Classic greenhouse films, Macro tunnels/walking tunnels and Low tunnels and floating covers, silage- Silage stretch films, Silage sheet and Silage bags, mulch- Transparent or clear mulches, Black mulches and others.
Agricultural films is a billion dollar market which is expected to reach $7.1 billion by 2017 at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2012 to 2017. Currently, mulch films and greenhouse films are the major application segments which are expected to boost the global market.
