Global Agricultural Films Market
Global Agricultural Film Market Size By Type, By Application, By Geography And Forecast
According to Verified Market Research, the Global Agricultural Film Market was valued at USD 9.22 Billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 15.57 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.93% from 2019 to 2026.
The use of agricultural films as a means to safeguard crops from pests has been explored since the past some years. Agricultural films are basically low weight LDPE or PE plastic films. Mulches, silage bags are just varied forms of a basic agricultural film. Agricultural films are being used increasingly in a bid to preserve and nurture plant health by preventing water loss, UV stabilization to cool soil and prevent insect attack, etc. The most important agricultural applications of plastic films are a greenhouse, walk-in tunnel and low tunnel covers, and mulching. The raw materials used for making these films are usually low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) or ethylene-butyl acrylate (EBA) copolymers for the ‘covers’ and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) for ‘mulching’. Few of the key features of these agricultural films are durability, optical properties (ultraviolet, visible, near infrared, and middle infrared), and the anti-drip or antifog effect.
With the growing demand for food around the world, rising demand for high yield and better-quality crops has boomed the global agricultural film market. Plastics have superior properties such as durability, lightweight, and transmittance and reflectance of ultraviolet, visible, near-infrared, and middle infrared rays, and anti-drip and anti-fog. These characteristics are the prime reason behind using plastic agricultural films to enhance the quality of harvest as the crop fields receive the required nutrition and atmosphere. Additionally, agricultural films ease the increase in the area of controlled agriculture by providing materials that boost farming. Because these agricultural films are flexible and easy to produce cultivators are expected to use.
