Based on the application type, the report categorizes the global agricultural films market into the following segments:
- Mulch films
- Greenhouse films
- Silage films
“Agricultural films are most widely used as mulch films since it protects the soil from erosion and suppresses the growth of unwanted plants around crops,” says Shakti Jakhar, a lead analyst at Technavio for warehouse and storage research.
More farmers are expected to adopt mulch films in the coming years, as the product awareness increases in tandem with growing product availability. Mulch films also prevent water evaporation, helping in moisture retention in the soil, which results in the increase in crop yields.
A greenhouse is a see-through structure with walls and roof made of materials such as glass or plastic films and used to grow plants under regulated climatic conditions. This structure can trap the desired amount of warmth from the sunlight and distribute the heat evenly to help crops and plants attain the desired growth. This mechanism is useful when the outside temperature is cold that may stunt the growth of plants. Greenhouse films are plastic films that are widely used in greenhouses to create the transparent structure. In 2016, the US had the highest market share among the greenhouse vegetable producers, followed by the Netherlands and Canada.
“Silage films are used to protect the forage or fodder for the cattle or live stocks, and nearly a 1000 kilotons of agricultural films are expected to be used as silage films by the end of 2017,” says Shakti.
Wrapping the fodder with silage films facilitates the formation of lactic acid, and as a result, the fodder becomes more nutritious and rich in vitamins. As the fodder is wrapped in the films with little or no air, the fodder retains it nutritional values for a longer period and can be used during a fodder shortage or during seasons when fodder cannot be grown in copious quantities.
