Agri Textiles Market Trends

One of the main causes driving the demand for Agri textiles is the growing difficulties farmers in the agricultural sector face, such as crop protection and weed control, to improve the total yield. In addition, governments in many nations are encouraging the use of high-tech farming methods due to the shrinking arable land area and rising food insecurity. This, in turn, is assisting in the market's expansion. Agri textiles made from natural fibres are also becoming more popular globally as a result of rising environmental concerns, the trend toward sustainable farming, and the advent of landfill regulations.

These fabrics provide UV protection and mitigate the impacts of wind-induced evapotranspiration, which lowers the demand for water, weedkillers, and fertilisers while minimising desiccation and product degradation. This is expected to propel the market along with the increased focus on creating intelligent, high-performance materials employing contemporary technology.

Using agricultural textiles helps increase crop productivity in accordance with market demands. Rapid urbanisation has boosted peoples' disposable income, which has led to an increase in food expenditures. The COVID-19 epidemic, as well as fluctuations in the pricing of raw materials like nylon, wool, and polyester, added to the market's complexity. The pandemic caused numerous downturns in the worldwide economy due to supply chain disruptions brought on by lockdowns and restrictions. However, as a result of the relaxations offered, things are beginning to normalise, and businesses are recovering.

The demand for shade nets is mostly driven by an increase in building and construction activity. For safety and protection, these shade nets are often used. Technological developments help products flourish and offer huge potential to the main players. After a yield is achieved, growing consumer knowledge of crop protection is anticipated to spur market expansion.

The global rise in pollution levels, escalating temperatures, and expanding need to preserve crops are all contributing to the growth of the agricultural textile industry. The use of modern agricultural practices by farmers is growing, which is a further driver of market expansion. The market value is also being driven by ongoing attention to improvements in textile materials. Better crop quality and greater overall production are two of the key benefits of using these materials, which also help to increase market demand.

Textile industry has a long history of applications in agriculture sector. The term agri textiles is used to classify the knitted, woven and nonwoven fabrics which are used in horticulture and agriculture uses. The usage of textiles in agriculture has also expanded to safeguard the agriculture products such as fruits, vegetables and plants from birds, weed and weather.

Moreover, with continuous upsurge in population globally, the stress on the agriculture crops has increased. Henceforth, it is essential to increase the quality and yield of agriculture products. Nylon, polyolefin, polyethylene and polyester are some of the fiber materials that are used in different techniques in agri textiles.

Agri Textile Market: Drivers & Restraints

The exceptional ecological resistance, mechanical properties, robustness and processability of agri textiles can improve the quality, quantity and safety of agriculture products.

This acts as a key driver for global agri textiles market. Agri textiles in the form of knitted textiles are also extensively used for many agricultural end uses mainly due to its ease of transport, performance ratio, favorable price and long service lifespan.

Also, the favorable policies is leading to growth in the global agri textiles market. Strengthen government regulations may act as a restraint for the global agri textiles market.

In the nonwoven techniques, the needle punch and spun bonded nonwoven techniques are majorly used for the production of nonwoven agri textiles. The spun bonded fabrics have constant and high tensile strength in every direction.

Furthermore, the nonwoven technique segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period mainly due to its better suitability and economy for various applications.

Agri Textiles : Region-wise Outlook

Asia Pacific is expected to hold majority of the global agri textiles regional market share. Moreover, the demand for agri textiles in Asia Pacific is expected to rise in the coming years due to rapid agriculture industry development in countries such as China, India and South Korea.

In addition, as an emerging economic authority, China and India have remarkable potential for the production, export and consumption of agri textiles. This has further lead to more number of agri textiles manufactures owing to cheap labour and raw material availability and is in turn hampering the agri textiles markets in the regions of North America and Europe.

North America is currently expected to hold a significant regional share of the global agri textile market but is anticipated to lose its market share to the market in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Rest of the regions are expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period.
