Agricultural output and productivity have significantly increased over the past sixty years and plastic agricultural film has contributed to this development. This is however a challenging market with conflicting trends. According to the UN, there will be more than 9 billion people on the planet by 2050, but in 2014 there already were some 800 million people living in chronic hunger. Besides, climate change, pollution, land and soil erosion, and more recently the strain caused by Coronavirus have put food production under increasing pressure. In such conditions of resource scarcity, sustainable practices, innovative agricultural techniques and smart farming have become top priorities within both the public as well as the private sector involved in agriculture.
For these reasons it has never been more important for players in the market to be armed with the best possible information. AMI’s new Agricultural film global report will provide a detailed independent assessment of demand and production for silage, mulch and greenhouse applications, industry structure, and resin usage. The study will also discuss the impact of Coronavirus on the industry and what the recovery may look like. In such a time of uncertainty, this study will assist companies in formulating coherent plans for their future progress within the agricultural segment of the polyethylene film market, to prepare meaningful strategies and to exploit fully emerging business opportunities.
