Agricultural Films Market - Overview
Agricultural films are made up of different resins including linear low density polyethylene, low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, ethylene vinyl acetate/ethylene butyl acrylate, and reclaims. These films provide a protective layer and suitable environment for crops, fruits, and vegetables. These films are placed over soil, wrapped around fodder, or covered over greenhouses in order to maintain the desired climatic conditions. Agricultural films are widely employed in farming applications such as greenhouse, mulching, silage, and tunnels. These films are employed in modern farming. Agricultural films are gaining popularity across the globe, as they help maximize the agriculture output.
Based on product, the global agricultural films market has been segmented into linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), ethylene vinyl acetate/ethylene butyl acrylate (EVA/EBA), reclaims, and other films. The other films segment includes polymerization of vinyl chloride (PVC) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH). LLDPE is widely used to produce agricultural films. It is extensively employed in various applications, due to its excellent flexibility and high tensile strength. In terms of application, the global agricultural films market has been segregated into greenhouse, mulching, and silage. Mulching and greenhouse segments cumulatively held the major share of the global market in 2017. Mulching protects soil erosion. It also helps maintain the nutrient values of soil. Greenhouse films provide climate control facility. They enable farmers to set up a particular environment for crops. Greenhouse is estimated to be a rapidly growing segment during the forecast period, owing to the high consumption of agricultural films to maximize the overall agricultural output.
Based on region, the global agricultural films market has been split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.
