Agricultural Films Market Trends

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Use of Greenhouse Films – With rapid urbanization, agricultural land scarcity was created. But the population is growing each year, and the sudden occurrence of the pandemic made the situation worse. All these are estimated to raise the demand for greenhouses owing to agricultural films market growth. For instance, greenhouse films are 100% eco-friendly, renewable, and have more than 4 years of durability.
  • Increasing Use in Fruit and Vegetable Cultivation – Film farming methods are estimated to utilize less than 90% of water compared to conventional farming methods.
  • Increasing Controlled Agriculture Owing to Lack of Agricultural Land – For instance, current operating indoor farms across the world reached 17 million square feet in 2021 and are estimated to reach 22 million square feet in 2022.
  • Increasing Weeds in Crop – Mulch film with 2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (MCPA) effectively prevented the growth of broadleaf weed species with only 1% MCPA concentration with sustainable release.
  • Increasing Nano Greenhouse for More Agricultural Productivity – For instance, nano greenhouses increase plant development by increasing natural warming and rises productivity by over 28%.


  • Pollution and Global Warming Risk - Plastic is progressively have been used in agricultural production. These films are used as silage and stretch films, as well as mulching films, to restrict weed development, raise soil temperatures, and reduce soil water evaporation, as well as topsoil and nutrient losses after heavy rain. These variables boost agricultural yields, extend the growing season, and lower the need for irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticide treatments. Plastic mulch films, on the other hand, have been discovered to be a major source of macro- and micro plastic pollution and global warming, and their extensive and long-term use, along with a lack of organized collection and management, leads to their accumulation in soils. Therefore, this factor is estimated to hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Disruption of Raw Materials During COVID
  • Rise of Volatile Petrochemical Prices
