The North America agricultural films market size is estimated to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the wide use of agricultural films across farming applications such as silage, mulching, greenhouse, and tunnels.

Agricultural films are used to safeguard the crops from pests, covering greenhouses, and cover over soil or wrapped around fodder. Films as are low-density Polyethylene (LDPE) or polyethylene (PE) plastic films are light in weight. The raw materials used for making the film covers are ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) or ethylene-butyl acrylate (EBA) copolymers, and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) for mulching mulches. Silage bag is also one of the forms of agricultural film.

North America Agricultural Films Market Key Takeaways

These films are used increasingly to preserve and nurture plant health by preventing water loss. The most important agricultural applications of plastic films are walk-in tunnel and low tunnel covers. Few of the key features of these agricultural films are durability, optical properties (visible, near infrared, and middle infrared), and the anti-drip or antifog effect.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Product innovations, such as ultraviolet (UV) blocking, NIR blocking, florescent and ultra-thermic films are expected drive the market growth.
  • Increasing agricultural output and rising demand from the dairy industry are projected to drive the agricultural films market.
  • Improvement in the agricultural productivity to sustain the food demand of the expanding population is the main factor spurring the market growth.
  • Shrinking agriculture land is anticipated to spur the market expansion in the coming years.
  • Agricultural films help in improving the crop quality and increasing agricultural productivity, which is estimated to propel the market growth.
  • Growing requirement of solutions that minimize soil erosion, provide nutrients, increase soil temperature, and suppress the growth of weeds drives the market growth.
  • Rising number of recyclable or biodegradable plastics is projected to fuel the growth of the market. Use of biodegradable films in agriculture promotes sustainability and reduces soil contamination.
  • The COVID -19 pandemic resulted in restrictions with respect to international trade and resulted in shortage of raw materials, which in turn, hampered the market growth.
  • Improper disposal of plastics films clog water channels, entangles equipment, and creates hazards for livestock and wildlife. This factor can hinder the market growth.
  • Increasing R&D investment and ongoing technological advancement in biodegradable films are expected to create immense opportunities for the market players during the forecast period.
