The global agricultural films market is expected to reach USD 13.85 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing population is anticipated to exert pressure on agricultural productivity. These films are used to enhance the productivity and improve crop quality by minimizing soil erosion, providing nutrients, and suppressing weed growth. They are primarily made of polyethylene. Growing consumer disposable income coupled with the rising high-quality crops demand is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period. 

Depleting arable land is expected to impact market growth positively over the next eight years. Protective films are placed over soil, covered over greenhouses and wrapped around fodder. Various benefits offered by agricultural films including reducing the risk of seed germination, decreasing soil compaction, raising soil temperature, providing nutrients, and protecting against UV rays. These advantages are expected to raise product demand in near future. 

Agricultural films for green house dominated the global demand and accounted for 42.9% of total revenue in 2015. This trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period on account of rising demand from emerging economies such as China and India.
