Agricultural Films Market Analysis By Application (Green House, Mulching, Silage), By Raw Material (LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, EVA, Reclaims), Competitive Analysis & Forecast, 2012 - 2020

Industry Overview
Global agricultural films market size is expected to reach 6.9 million tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2014 to 2020.

Increase in agricultural productivity requirement owing to meet growing food demands by rise in population is anticipated to drive growth. Global population is growing exponentially and is expected to reach 8 billion by 2025. Population growth is significantly faster in developing nations.

Agricultural films offer several advantages over conventional polymer films such as reducing soil compaction & erosion, providing nutrients externally, increasing soil temperature, suppressing the growth of weeds, supporting seed germination, and protecting against UV rays. These films possess various desirable properties such as durability, transparency, anti-fog, diffusion, thermal effects and degradation.

Diminishing arable land coupled with growing superior quality crop demand is likely to surge agricultural films market over the forecast period. In 2000, globally 53% of the total available agricultural land was arable, which reduced to less than 47% of the total available agricultural land in 2013. Decrease in arable land was especially evident in Europe and Asia Pacific.

Increase in yield-per-hectare in comparison to conventional farming techniques may favor the demand. Rising standards in global farming techniques is also anticipated to drive agricultural films market growth. Associations such as SAN (Sustainable Agriculture Network), AGRA (predominant in Africa), and GLOBAL G.A.P Academy provide expertise to farmers worldwide to set standards and achieve new heights in the field of agricultural development.

Recyclability and environment issues associated with these films is expected to hamper industry growth as they are widely made by using polyethylene as raw material, which is a crude oil derivative. Increasing investments in research to manufacture biodegradable & bioderived polymer films may open up new avenues for this industry. Innovation by manufacturers which include NIR blocking, UV blocking, ultra-thermic films and florescent is also likely to provide opportunities to consolidate industry position.

Europe agricultural films market, by raw material, 2012-2020 (Kilo tons)
Raw Material Overview LLDPE was the largest to be used as raw material in agricultural films with a market valuation of over USD 1.3 billion in 2013. LLDPE is likey to witness higher growth rates owing to high tensile strength & superior puncture resistance properties coupled with cost effectiveness over other raw materials. LDPE formed the second largest segment, with over 20% of the total demand in 2013. It is expected to grow at above average growth rates of over 7.5% from 2014 to 2020. LDPE based films find applications in greenhouse cladding and are preferred next to LLDPE. HDPE is also expected to witness moderate growth rates over the forecast period. Its revenue was estimated exceeding USD 400 million in 2013. Intrinsic properties associated with HDPE films such as rigidity is anticipated to drive growth over the next few years. Application Overview Agricultural mulch films market led revenue generation, exceeding USD 2.5 billion in 2013. Growing superior quality crop demand coupled with rise in per-capita disposable income is anticipated to drive demand for mulching applications. Greenhouse emerged as the second largest application with revenue share of over 40% in 2013. This application is expected to grow at higher growth rates of over 6% up to 2020 owing to growing floriculture and horticulture demand coupled with prevalence of uncertain weather conditions across globe. Regional Overview China was the leading region for agriculture films industry with valuation exceeding USD 3.5 billion in 2013. Favorable government policies coupled with population expansion is expected to surge China’s demand. Europe agricultural films market was the second largest region and accounted for more than 10% of the total volume in 2013. This region is expected to grow at moderate growth rate of close to 5.5% owing to stringent government regulations regarding environmental concerns coupled with polymer recyclability issues. Competitive Market Share This industry is vastly fragmented and is characterized by the presence of large scale and numerous SME manufactures in China & rest of Asian countries such as India, Indonesia and Thailand. British Polymer (BPI) dominated the agricultural film market share and accounted for over 6% of demand in 2013. BPI seeks to expand its business through acquisitions BPI was closely followed by Trioplast which accounted for more than 5% of the total demand for 2013. The company is expected to increase industry penetration through product innovation and venturing into biodegradable agricultural films and bags. Other prominent manufacturers include ExxonMobil, Armando Alvarez, Group Barbier, Britton Group, Kuraray, Novamont, and BASF.
