What are the Challenges that Need to be Addressed by Stakeholders in the Agricultural films Market?
The production and development of biodegradable agricultural films are still in the nascent phase, with production costs of the significantly higher compared to their traditional counterparts. The trickle-down effect of high production costs on the selling price of biodegradable plastics, coupled with the bolstering efforts to reduce plastic pollution is likely to stifle growth of the agricultural films market.
Numerous studies suggesting the use of plastic films in agriculture as the prime source of entry of carcinogens in the food chain, is likely to hamper agricultural films sales. Additionally, growing consumer interest in the supply chain of food and agriculture production is estimated to dent agriculture film sales during the forecast period.
The estimated adverse impact of plastic films on agriculture production such as decreased soil porosity, changing nature of microbial communities, and the eventual decrease in the production capacity of farmland is likely to continue to pose a daunting challenge in the agricultural films market.
