Agro-textiles are now an essential part of the agriculture industry

The growth of and demand for the agro-textiles market is directly linked to the demand for food and other agricultural products. The category of agro-textiles includes knitted, woven, and non-woven fabrics that are used for agriculture, fishing, landscaping, and related applications.

Agro-textiles can decrease the amount of fertilizer, water, and pesticides needed to maintain healthy crops, which reduces costs and waste, and can also reduce the amount of energy needed to heat greenhouses. They also make it easier for farmers to grow out-of-season crops and to adapt their crops and practices to changes in climate and other environmental factors. These advantages are driving the global agro-textiles market, which is now valued over USD 8 billion, accounting for roughly 6% of the global technical textiles market.
