DALLAS, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

The Global Agricultural Films Market 2015-2019 research report emphasizes the adoption of high barrier ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) films, which are almost impermeable to external gases, which ensures the moisture content and heat is constant in silage and greenhouse applications.

Complete report on agricultural films market spread across 62 pages, providing analysis of 4 major companies and supported with 23 exhibits is now available at .

Worldwide crop shortages have forced agricultural films market stakeholders across the crop production value chain to adopt efficient agricultural techniques using agricultural films. The global population has increased at an alarming rate in the last decade, which has resulted in a shortage of crops and forced up the price of staple foods, leading to global food security problems. Use of efficient technologies in agriculture is being encouraged to scale up the yield and make crop growing efficient. EVOH films have reduced environmental impact and generated better savings during the entire crop lifecycle.

The new agricultural films market research report segments the market based on applications into mulching application, greenhouse application, and silage application. The key end-customers of agricultural films belong to the agricultural and horticultural sectors. This research has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers APAC, Europe, the Americas, and ROW; it also covers the global agricultural films market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Companies mentioned in this report include BASF, Berry Plastics, ExxonMobil Chemical, Trioplast Industrier, AEP Industries, Agriplast, Al-Pack Enterprises, Amcor, Armando Alvarez, BPI, Clondalkin Group, Coveris, Eiffel, Henan Yinfeng Plastic, Plastika Kritis, Rani Group and RKW Hyplast.

Agricultural films are new age films that are a component of modern farming technologies used to increase farm productivity. They are generally made from a variety of plastic resins such as PE, EVA, PVC, and PVOH. They offer a wide range of benefits in mulching, silage, and greenhouse applications such as controlling temperature and moisture of soil, elimination of weeds, enabling lesser use of herbicides, storage and growth of crops in greenhouses, and prevention of soil erosion, apart from protecting fodder in silage bales. However, due to disposal and pollution hazards, they are facing competition from non-biodegradable alternatives.

The global focus on increasing the agricultural output coupled with the increase in area under controlled agriculture is driving the market for agricultural films says another research titled Agricultural Films Market  by Type (LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, EVA, Reclaim), Applications (Greenhouse, Silage and Mulch) and Geography (North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and RoW) - Global Trends & Forecast to 2020. The agricultural films help in retaining the moisture content and reduce the growth of weeds. These films also prevent erosion and help in maintaining the temperature within greenhouses. Asia-Pacific accounts for a major share in the agricultural films market. India and China are the major growing markets in the region. The growing emphasis on increasing the crop yield in order to meet the demand of the rising population is the key driver of the market. The concept of controlled agriculture is boosting the demand for agricultural films in the region. The decreasing arable land fosters the use of agricultural films to increase the output.

However, the regulations and bans imposed on plastic usage are expected to hamper the demand of plastic films in agriculture. Also, the high cost of installation of the films hampers the growth of the market. Furthermore, the matured markets of Western Europe and North America act as a restraint for the agricultural films market. There are numerous opportunities for the agricultural films market in the developing nations. The innovations in the agricultural films and the growing usage of biodegradable films in Europe hold immense growth opportunities for the market. The rapid economic developments in China and India act as a key driver for the market.
