The global agricultural films market reached a value of US$ 10.5 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Agricultural films are used to enhance crop quality, ensure optimal utilization of the harvest and protect the soil from adverse weather conditions and proliferation of weeds. These films also aid in controlling humidity levels in crop fields, thereby maintaining internal temperature and preventing evapotranspiration. Various types of agricultural films are currently available, depending on the application. In recent years, the development of advanced agricultural films, such as ultraviolet (UV)-blocking, near-infrared (NIR)-blocking, fluorescent and ultra-thermic films, is driving their demand worldwide.

With the continual growth in the global population, a decline in the availability of adequate arable land and an increase in the consumption of agro-based products, there is a significant rise in the need for land with optimum agricultural productivity. This, along with the growing food and beverage (F&B) industry, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of environment-friendly agricultural films, which are made from compostable and bio-based raw materials, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the growing popularity of horticulture, increasing adoption of sustainable farming methods and the development of innovative product variants, such as bags for grain storage, are other factors contributing to the market growth. However, disruptions in the global supply chains and the unavailability of adequate labor due to the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are hindering the market growth.
