The agricultural films market is expected to grow at a decent pace during the coming decade driven by its increasing demand from the Asia-Pacific region. The increased demand for controlled agricultural activities drives the market for agricultural films. Agricultural films are primarily made of polyethylene. The increasing disposable of the consumers together with the growing demand for high-quality crops is driving the market for agricultural films. The agricultural films market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.5% between 2015 and 2020 to reach $11,743.7 million, by 2020.

Asia-Pacific holds a significant market share in the agricultural films market. China leads the Asian market in terms of demand for agricultural films. Asia-pacific is thus expected to maintain its dominance in the global market owing to the steady growth in China and India.

The market for agricultural films is experiencing slow growth in Europe and North America due to maturing of these economies. The European market is saturated due to decreasing arable land and the stringent regulation that forbid the use of plastic films in agriculture. However, the increasing demand for biodegradable films from these regions is expected to drive the market.

The threat of substitute products is low in the agricultural films market. This is primarily due to the multi-utility of the plastic films and high cost of glass.

The agricultural films market is projected to reach $11,743.7 million by 2020. The agricultural films market is mainly driven by the growing demand for increasing the agricultural productivity. The increased demand for food from the emerging nations fosters the growth of agricultural films market. The increased usage of plastic films for agriculture drives the market in Asia-Pacific, particularly in China and India. Asia-Pacific holds a significant market share of the agricultural films market. China leads the Asian market in terms of demand for agricultural films. Asia-Pacific is thus expected to maintain its dominance in the global market owing to the steady growth in China and India.

In terms of applications, greenhouse accounts for the maximum market share. However, the demand for agricultural films in silage application is also increasing at a higher rate in many regions. The demand for silage films is expected to grow rapidly in Asia-Pacific. This is due to the properties of silage films that make it suitable for agricultural applications. The increased demand for food in the region drives the market for silage and mulch films.

The stringent regulations in North America and Europe against the use of plastics is driving the growth of biodegradable films in these regions. The LLDPE market holds the maximum market share, in terms of types. LLDPE is the most preferred type due to its properties of high puncture resistance and high tensile strength. It is replacing conventional LDPE in many areas, primarily due to the combination of favorable production cost and product performance.

The report covers the Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe and RoW market. It also provides a detailed segmentation of the market on the basis of type and by applications, along with projections till 2020.
