Market Overview

The Asia pacific agricultural films market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period 2020-2025. Soil solarization is one of the most common practices in advanced agriculture. Films reduce the exposure of soil and seeds, thereby reducing the impact of weed seeds, conserve soil moisture and nutrients and reduce soil compaction. Films are also used extensively in protected cultivation. The impact of agricultural films on the protection of soil and the indirect impact on yield due to soil moisture conservation and reduction of weed growth are impacting the adoption of mulching using films as a standard practice in advanced agriculture.

Scope of the report

The agricultural film, which is treated like a modern-day application, is used in many innovative agricultural practices. Agricultural films are used extensively for soil protection, greenhouse farming, and mulching. The benefits derived include reduced soil erosion and compaction, temperature control, nutrient conservation, seed germination, weed control, and protection against UV rays. The Asia Pacific Agricultural Films Market is segmented by Type into Low-Density Polyethylene, Linear Low-Density Polyethylene, High-Density Polyethylene, Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA)/Ethylene Butyl Acrylate (EBA), and Other Films, by Application into Greenhouse, Silage, Mulching, and Others, and by Geography into China, India, Japan, Australia, and Rest of Asia Pacific.

Key Market Trends

Increased adoption of Plastic Film Mulching in China

China is contributing to the major market share for the Agricultural film market in the Asia Pacific region. Grains such as Rice, Wheat, Corn, and Soybean are the major growing crops in China. Due to increasing urbanization and decreasing arable land, it was observed that there has been a gradual decline in the production quantity. Therefore, to increase their productivity, Plastic film mulching technology was adopted by the farmers, which markedly improved grain crop yields and water use efficiency through maintaining soil moisture, suppressing weeds, and increasing soil temperature. The usage of this technology has led to an increase of 20-50% grain crop yield. Thus, increasing the usage of mulching technology, in turn, rising the demand for Agricultural film market in China.

Declining Arable land

The rising population has led to an increased need for optimum agricultural productivity. But due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, the arable agricultural land is decreasing gradually. The Agricultural land as a percentage of total land area in the Asia Pacific region has decreased to 47% in the year 2019 from 47.7% in 2016. With this tendency of decreasing arable land and increasing production demands, the usage of agricultural films in mulching, greenhouse films came into practice. These films help in modifying soil temperature, limit weed growth, prevent moisture loss, and improve crop yield as well as precocity. Thus, increasing the demand for these films in this region.
