Agricultural Films Market Trends




  • Rising adoption of plasticulture to boost market growth




The rising adoption of plasticulture has been a key driver for the growth of the agricultural film market in recent years. Plasticulture refers to the use of plastic materials in agriculture, including the use of agricultural films to cover crops and protect them from various environmental factors. Agricultural films are used for a variety of applications in the agriculture industry, including greenhouse films, mulch films, silage films, and stretch films. These films help to improve crop yields, reduce water consumption, control temperature and humidity, and protect crops from pests and diseases.


The adoption of plasticulture has been driven by several factors, such as the need to improve agricultural productivity, the increasing demand for food due to the growing population, and the need to conserve natural resources. Additionally, the development of new and advanced agricultural films with improved properties, such as greater durability, UV resistance, and better temperature regulation, has also contributed to the growth of the agricultural film market. Overall, the increasing adoption of plasticulture is expected to drive the growth of the agricultural film market in the coming years, particularly in emerging economies where the adoption of modern agricultural practices is on the rise. Therefore, such factors related to Agricultural Films have enhanced the Agricultural Films market CAGR across the globe in recent years.
