Agricultural films are used extensively for covering greenhouses and soil and also wrapped around fodder. These films help in improving crop quality and increasing the overall productivity of the land. The need to improve the productivity in the agricultural industry is directly correlated to the increasing demand for agricultural produce across the globe. There is a growing need for high-quality food crop by the average population.

The market is highly driven by the increasing greenhouse framing practices and the demand from the APAC region. The region is seen as a highly potential market for the agricultural films and is expected to show even better market share by the forecasted period. 

The market is highly application based. The key driver for market growth is increased emphasis on global agricultural output due to the rising food demand of the increasing population. This is backed by the need to facilitate the area of controlled agriculture by providing materials that drives farming. It is expected that the global agricultural films market will advance with higher growth rate as compared to previous years. However the current challenge for the market is the harmful effect of these plastic films on the ecology.
