The agricultural films market is a billion dollar industry which is expected to reach $7.1 billion by 2017 at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2012 to 2017. Currently, mulch films and greenhouse films are the major application segments which are expected to boost the global market.
Agricultural films are gaining importance with the advent of high technologies in agriculture and emphasis on higher productivity per hectare. High growth in global population is one of the biggest challenges for the agriculture industry, which has led to increased focus on agricultural productivity. The major purpose of using agricultural films is high sustainable production on limited arable land. The use of agricultural films for controlled agriculture has helped in increasing the yields on the limited arable land with limited irrigation water. The three major applications of agricultural films are greenhouse, mulch, and silage.
The arable land is decreasing gradually with drastic increase in urbanization. Controlled agriculture becomes important in order to utilize significant resources like water for irrigation in an optimum manner. This is consequently increasing the importance of controlled agriculture in greenhouse, high tunnel, and mulching.
The agricultural films market is gaining a worldwide importance as the area under protected agriculture increasing day-by-day. Furthermore, the need to increase the agricultural production to feed the ever-growing population is also a vital growth driver for agricultural films. The demand for agricultural films has driven due to its multi tasking and efficient functioning.
Regulatory authorities are implying directives for use of polyethene. Regulations regarding use of the plastics and recycling of the plastics are being implemented in the regions of Europe, U.S., and Asia at a significant pace.
The report covers the global agricultural films market which includes application of the agricultural films, different types of agricultural films, and other related segments. It also studies about the application/end use of the agricultural films with respect to different geographical areas. It also gives the insights about the technology being used; analyses the market with respect to drivers, opportunity, and winning imperatives related to the industry.
The qualitative analyses of agricultural films with respect to its concept, technical knowhow, innovations, various applications, properties, and characteristics are done in an elaborative manner. It mainly highlights the properties such as durability, light transmission, diffusion, antifog, thermal effect, diffusion, degradation, and innovations such as ultra violet blocking films, NIR blocking films, florescent, and ultrathermic films. The policies and regulation implied by different authorities for supporting degradable films production are also discussed in the study. The degradable films are gaining importance due to its eco-friendly and the cost of disposal is avoided.
The agricultural film market is also analyzed with respect to the Porters five forces model. Different market forces such as bargaining power of suppliers, bargaining power of buyers, degree of competition, threat of substitutes, and new entrants are analyzed with respect to the agricultural films industry. This report also provides insights about the patent analysis by various market players for last five years and the market share analysis for different regions including Asia, North America, and Europe. The global agricultural film market in Asia is highly fragmented and films manufacturers are proliferated. In North America, there are few players with less technical knowhow and in Europe there are many players with good technology, quality, and competitive price.
The global agricultural film market is segmented firstly on the basis of the polymers as linear low density polyethene, low density polyethene, high density polyethene, reclaim, and others. Secondly, it is segmented on the basis of application as greenhouse agricultural films, silage films, mulching films; these are again further segmented up to the end use. Lastly, the market is segmented on the basis of the geography such as North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of World (ROW); further it is segmented with major countries as in Europe - Italy, Spain, Germany, France, U.K., and rest of the Europe; in Asia- China and others. Each region has been analyzed with respect to its market trends, growth, and future prospective of the agricultural films market. The data has been analyzed over a period of 2010 to 2017. The quantitative data regarding all the above segmentation is given in both the terms value ($million) as well as volume (thousand tons).
