"EVA is projected to be the fastest-growing type for agricultural films market between 2021 and 2026"
EVA is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl-acetate used in agricultural films. It lowers the melting point of PE film and offers advantages such as softness, flexibility, clarity, barrier properties, resistance to crack & stress, waterproofing, resistance to UV radiation, and optical and mechanical properties. The mechanical strength of EVA film depends on the content of vinyl acetate. Higher the content of vinyl-acetate, lower is the film's permeability to gas and moisture. Owing to these properties and features, EVA films are suitable for greenhouse and mulching applications.
"Mulch Film is projected to be the fastest growing application in agricultural films market between 2021 and 2026."
Mulching is a practice of covering the soil/ ground to provide favorable conditions for plant growth and development and for efficient crop production. Mulch in technical term means "covering of soil." While natural mulches such as leaf, straw, dead leaves, and compost have been used for centuries, the advent of synthetic materials has altered the methods and benefits of mulching. In comparison to other mulches, plastic mulches are completely impermeable to water. Therefore, these prevent direct evaporation of moisture from the soil, thus limiting water loss and soil erosion over the surface. Therefore, mulching plays a vital role in water conservation. Mulches are further classified as black mulches, transparent or clear mulches, and others. The high growth is owing to increasing crop protection with limited land available for farming. Moreover, the color of mulch films is expected to have a significant effect on the growth of certain crops. For instance, tomato responds more to red mulch in comparison to others. Red films also reduce blight in plants.
