Report Highlights

Greenhouse films are used to cover greenhouse structures in order to generate suitable conditions for cultivation of crops against adverse environmental settings. The global greenhouse films market can be segmented based on type of resin, thickness, application, and geography. In terms of type of resin, the greenhouse film market can be divided into LDPE, EVA/EBA, LLDPE, PVC, and others. LDPE accounted for a significant share of the greenhouse film market in 2016. Based on thickness, greenhouse films with thickness of more than 150 microns constituted a leading share of the greenhouse film market in 2016. Applications of greenhouse films include cultivation of vegetables, flowers & ornamental plants, and fruits.

Greenhouse Film Market: Trends and Opportunities

Increasing greenhouse cultivations owing to the rising need for appropriate environmental conditions is a major driving factor for the growth of greenhouse films. These conditions play a crucial role in increasing the yield of crops. Crops such as tomatoes, lettuce, basil, and cucumbers grow outdoors only during a specific period in the year. These crops command high prices commercially. Greenhouse films used in greenhouse structures help in cultivation of these crops during their off-season. However, there is an additional investment involved in the process, such as heating of the greenhouse during winter, labor cost, etc.

Asia Pacific dominated the global greenhouse film market in 2016 and is expected to witness a significant growth of the market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific was followed by Europe in terms of revenue and volume of the greenhouse film market in 2016. In Latin America, Mexico and Brazil were the major markets for greenhouse film in 2016. The trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Middle East & Africa is considered an attractive market for greenhouse films owing to the rise in greenhouse cultivation in Israel, Iran, and Turkey.

Key Takeaways

The greenhouse film market is mainly concentrated in Asia Pacific and Europe. The Middle East is generating considerable revenue as Israel and Iran are adopting greenhouse cultivations extensively.
For cultivation of vegetables, greenhouse films with thickness of more than 150 microns (mainly thickness of 200 microns) are preferred. Cultivation of flowers requires greenhouse films with thickness of more than 150 microns but less than 200 microns
Areas having high wind wave and temperature rely on greenhouse films with higher thickness
Globally, LDPE-based greenhouse films are the largely preferred by farmers
Fruits grown on trees cannot be cultivated in greenhouse. Only strawberries and muskmelons are cultivated in greenhouses as they are creepers.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the greenhouse film market during the forecast period
