The business report highlights the drivers, restraints, opportunities and trends affecting agricultural films market growth. Further, all the market shares associated with the market as well as the segments are expressed in terms of value and volume.
The agricultural films market study outlines the key regions – Latin America, North America, MEA, Europe and APEJ – along with the countries contributing the most in the respective regions. The report presents detailed insights about each market player, including SWOT analysis, main market information, market share, revenue, pricing and gross margin. Prominent players covered in this research are Trioplast Industries AG, Eastman Chemical Company, AEP Industries Inc., Ginegar Plastic Products and many others.
The study finds that mulch plastic films are preferred over other agricultural film variants, with sales in 2019 estimated at over 2200 tons. Comparatively larger sales of mulch plastic films can be backed by its unparalleled effectiveness in increasing farmland yield. In addition, mulch plastic films has gained widespread acceptance among farmers worldwide, as it facilitates creating favorable microclimatic conditions for accelerating the growth of crops.
The study opines that exponential growth in food demand in recent years will remain the leading sales influencer of agricultural films. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the demand for food is estimated to increase by 70% by 2050. Mulch plastic films, on account of their unmatched benefits and effectiveness in increasing the agricultural productivity, will continue to witness robust demand, in line with the surging food demand in the foreseeable future. Mulch plastic films complement the use of drip irrigation and polymer-based fertilizer release practices, enabling easy and time-effective production of high-quality agricultural produce.

Biodegradability of PBAT Attracting Agricultural Films Manufacturers
Environmental abuse of plastic has been one of the key concerns, which led the agricultural films industry players to seek biodegradable alternatives to polyethylene. The non-biodegradable nature of traditional plastics is causing excessive pressure on landfills worldwide. However, a recent study by ETH Zurich concluded the biodegradability of PBAT or polybutylene adipate terephthalate to favor agriculture films manufacturers. The study of ETH Zurich states that PBAT can undergo complete biodegradation in soil over a period of six weeks making it an ideal replacement for polyethylene with the former exhibiting all the properties required for cost-effective production of agriculture films.
Rapid Adoption of Organic Farming Practices to Impede Sales
According to the study, growing consumer awareness about the health benefits associated with the consumption of organic food products, and increasing inclination towards paying more for these products is driving the adoption of organic farming practices. With organic farming practices being based around the principles of avoiding the use of synthetic substances, agriculture films sales are expected to remain directly impacted.
