The agricultural film market size is estimated to be USD 11.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 15.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Factors such as a global focus on increasing agricultural output and increasing demand from the dairy industry will drive the agricultural film market. The major restraint for the market will be high cost of installation and the adverse effect of plastics on the environment. However, the increased use of biodegradable films in developed regions will act as an opportunity for the market.
Based on type, the agricultural films market is segmented as LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, EVA, Reclaim, and other. LLDPE accounted for the largest share in the market. LLDPE is the most widely used type among PE films. These films can be blown or cast similar to LDPE. LLDPE films and sheets offer properties such as higher puncture resistance, high tensile strength, moisture barrier, resistance to sunlight & cracking, and suitable low-temperature properties. LLDPE films are replacing conventional LDPE in many areas due to their low production cost and high product performance. These films also have different applications in the packaging industry. Consequently, LLDPE films are replacing HDPE, as HDPE films are stiffer than LLDPE films, making the latter more suitable.

Based on application, the agricultural films market has been segmented into greenhouse films, mulch films, and silage. The greenhouse is a temporarily, semi-permanently, or even permanently closed structure depending upon the technology used in it. In North America, greenhouses are closed, which are taxable with fully automated ventilation. These can also be non-permanent structures, which can be rolled outback. Greenhouses are also called hoop houses, which are non-taxable. The thickness of agriculture films ranges from 80 μm to 220 μm, and it is up to 20 meters wide. The shelf life of greenhouses varies from 6 to 45 months based on the photo stabilizer used. Classic greenhouse film, macro tunnels/ walking tunnels, and low tunnels are the sub-segments of greenhouses. Classic greenhouses films are automated and hence expensive.
On the basis of region, APAC is projected to be the largest market for agricultural films during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific has dominated the global agricultural films market. This dominance is attributed to the massive agricultural growth and increased demand for food in key countries such as China and India. Increasing population and rising per capita intake of food exert pressure on the agricultural output. The area under cultivation cannot be increased due to a decrease in arable land. Thus, the practice of controlled agriculture is essential to cater to the demand of the region’s rising population. The demand for agricultural films is growing, especially in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Thus, the markets in these regions are expected to register higher growth in comparison to other regions.
