Agricultural films are stretchable plastics used to protect crops and plants in open fields and greenhouses. They are essentially thin, flexible sheets or films crafted from a variety of plastics like polyethylene or polypropylene. These films find versatile applications in contemporary agricultural practices. They come in a range of thicknesses, colours, and compositions, offering farmers the flexibility to choose the most suitable type tailored to their specific needs and crops.
Based on type, the market can be segmented into low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene, and ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA)/ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA), among others. The Africa agricultural films market segmentation, based on application, includes mulching, silage, and greenhouse. The major regional markets for agricultural films in Africa are South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt, and Algeria, among others.
The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the Africa agricultural films market, covering their competitive landscape and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.
According to the Africa agricultural films market analysis, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is expected to witness substantial expansion during the forecast period. LDPE is in significant demand owing to its desirable physical properties, which makes it ideal for use in agricultural applications.
LDPE films are flexible, durable, and boast puncture resistance, which makes them suitable for various uses in farming. Moreover, low-density polyethylene films are also manufactured with additives that provide excellent resistance to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
Mulching is expected to significantly influence the Africa agricultural films market share in the coming years owing to its increasing utilisation in farming activities. Mulching can provide significant protection against weed growth. Additionally, agricultural films act as a barrier that reduces the evaporation of moisture from the soil. This helps to maintain a more consistent level of soil moisture, which is crucial for plant growth, especially in arid or drought-prone regions.
