Global Greenhouse Film Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Swelling of Population Owing to Increasing Fertility Rates – The burgeoning of the population leads to increased demand for food, which exerts pressure on agricultural productivity. Further, this sharp rise in demand for agricultural products can be achieved by controlling agriculture and adopting technologies such as greenhouses. This adoption trend is anticipated to increase the sales of greenhouse films in the upcoming years. The United Nations suggests that the world population is projected to reach almost 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100.

  • Rise in Production of Food Grains to Meet the Food Needs– The production of food grains in India rose by almost 6 million tons in the years 2021-22 to 320 million tons. The boom in the population is directly proportional to the increase in the production of food items. Thus, the improved quality of agricultural produce, high productivity, and efficient pest control is estimated to bolster the demand for greenhouse films in the construction of greenhouses to satisfy the food requirements of the population.

  • Boom in the Agricultural Industry with Rising Initiatives by Government – According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in the United States, the revenue garnered by agriculture, food, and related industries was almost USD 1.060 trillion in the year 2020.

  • Presence of Farm Fields Across the Globe Owned by Milliners – In 2020, the total number of farms present worldwide was estimated to be approximately 650 million.

  • Rising Areas Under Protected Horticulture Cultivation as Livelihood to Improve Economy – The protected cultivation crops are highly profitable with rose and capsicum comprising more than 280% cultivation cost, over 200% gross return, and greater than 180% net return.


  • Lack of Awareness of the Benefits of Greenhouses

Very few people are aware of the benefits of greenhouse farming and the government should take initiatives to rise this awareness and protect the environment from global warming. The authorities of institutions should also improve education about greenhouses, and improve greenhouses in the surroundings to inspire others. Greenhouses are only limited to commercial or independent villas or housing spaces which hinders market growth.

  • Additional Investments During the Process
  • Increased Labor Costs in Building and Maintaining Greenhouses

The greenhouse film market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into manufacturing, construction, mining, oil and gas, and others. Out of this, the oil and gas segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by 2035, owing to the growth in the oil and gas industry. The oil & gas industry is considered to be one of the largest sectors in the world in terms of revenue. Revenue generation is expected to reach USD 5 trillion by 2022.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
