Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kkfsgs/agricultural) has announced the addition of the “Agricultural Films Market in APAC 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The agricultural films market in APAC to grow at a CAGR of 6.17% over the period 2015-2019.

Agricultural films are new-age films used in modern farming technologies. They are made from a variety of plastic resins, such as different grades of polyethylene (PE), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH). They are used as mulch and to cover silage bales. They are also used in greenhouses for controlling the temperature and moisture of soil, eliminating weeds, reducing the use of herbicides, storing and growing crops in greenhouses, and preventing soil erosion. However, owing to disposal and pollution hazards, they are being replaced by non-biodegradable alternatives. The key customers of agricultural films are crop growers, processors, and retail packagers of agricultural and horticultural produce.

The report, Agricultural Films Market in APAC 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. It also covers the landscape of the agricultural films market in APAC and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion on the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers fueling the growing adoption of films is the need for crop growers to increase their overall output yield, sidetracking inefficiencies in the process. This has become important, as arable land suitable for cultivation is becoming scarce. Also, construction problems with canals that source water for irrigation are affecting farmers. The use of mulch films has resulted in an increase in yield of cash and grain crops. Individual crops such as maize, wheat, and potatoes have had an increase in yield of more than 25% each with the usage of mulching films. This increase is much sought after and is caused because of the soil conditioning and water retention properties of these films, along with the protection of crops from radiation and cold.

Further, the report states that rising costs of raw materials have led to cost constraints and reduced profit margins for vendors, especially micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
