This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Agro Textiles Market is accounted for $5.26 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $8.28 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. Agro-textiles are specialty textiles made specifically for use in agriculture; they are essential to contemporary farming methods. These textiles are designed to protect plants, increase crop yield, and boost agricultural productivity as a whole. Geotextiles, crop covers, mulch fabrics, and shade nets are typical examples. Moreover, mulch fabrics control the moisture and temperature of the soil, while shade nets control the amount of sunlight that reaches the plants. Geotextiles support soil stabilization and erosion control. 

According to the International Association of Geotextile Installers (IAGI), the proper installation of geotextiles is paramount for effective soil stabilization and erosion control in various civil engineering projects.

Market Dynamics: 


Implementing sustainable farming methods

An important factor driving the agro-textiles market is the growing commitment to and awareness of sustainable agricultural practices. Agro-textiles are becoming indispensable instruments in lessening the environmental effects of farming as farmers and other stakeholders realize the value of ecologically friendly practices. Additionally, agro-textiles contribute significantly to the global shift towards sustainable agriculture by minimizing the need for chemical inputs, optimizing resource utilization, and promoting eco-friendly practices.


Low level of education and awareness

One significant barrier to widespread adoption of agro-textiles is farmers' lack of knowledge about the advantages and applications of these materials. In many agricultural communities, there is a dearth of information about the specific applications and uses that these materials can provide. Furthermore, farmers must be made aware of the ways that agro-textiles can improve crop yields, lessen their impact on the environment, and support sustainable farming practices.


Growing interest in organic agriculture

For the agro-textiles market, the growing consumer preference for organic produce offers a substantial opportunity. The number of farmers shifting to organic farming methods is driving up demand for environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions. Moreover, agro-textiles complement organic farming practices by promoting natural pest control and lowering dependency on chemical inputs. Making the most of this trend may create new opportunities for market expansion.


Variable costs of raw materials

Price swings for raw materials, especially those sourced from petrochemicals, can have a significant impact on the agro-textiles sector. Changes in the price of polymers and other essential materials used in production can have an effect on production costs and, consequently, the profit margins of companies that make agro-textiles. Furthermore, pricing volatility is a serious risk, and businesses must plan strategically to lessen the effects of erratic market circumstances.

Covid-19 Impact: 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruptions in the supply chain, manufacturing processes, and demand dynamics in the agro-textiles market. Production has been impacted by labor shortages, movement restrictions, and lockdowns, which have resulted in delays and shortages. Additionally, the purchasing decisions of farmers have been impacted by fluctuations in commodity prices and economic uncertainties. Positively, as farmers look for ways to reduce risks and increase resilience in the face of disruptions, the crisis has sped up the adoption of agro-textiles, causing a shift toward sustainable and technologically advanced agricultural practices.

The Nonwoven segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The nonwoven fabrics segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share in the agro-textiles market. Because of their adaptability to a wide range of agricultural applications, nonwoven agro-textiles—made by bonding or interlocking fibers without the need for traditional weaving or knitting processes—are preferred. These materials have advantages like better breathability, better permeability of air and water, and better resistance to abrasion. Moreover, nonwoven agricultural textiles serve as an efficient barrier against pests and diseases and enhance ideal growing conditions, which are why they are widely used in crop protection, mulching, and weed control applications. 

The Insect Protection Nets segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The insect protection nets segment of the agro-textiles market is probably the one with the highest CAGR. This particular segment has experienced notable expansion as a result of its critical function in protecting crops from insect infestations. By acting as a physical barrier against pests, insect protection nets help to promote environmentally friendly farming methods and lessen the need for chemical pesticides. Additionally, the demand for these nets has increased due to growing awareness of pesticides negative effects on the environment and the importance of sustainable agriculture. Their capacity to keep harmful insects away from crops while letting in enough light and airflow promotes increased crop yields and better crop quality. 

Region with largest share:

The largest share of the global agro-textiles market is held by the Asia-Pacific region, primarily due to the substantial contribution of nations like China and India to worldwide agriculture. The widespread use of agro-textiles in a variety of agricultural practices, such as crop protection, shade cultivation, and soil stabilization, is responsible for the region's dominance. Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific region has seen a rapid uptake of agro-textiles due to factors such as population growth, rising food demand, and the requirement for sustainable farming practices.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Europe region is anticipated to hold the highest CAGR in the market. Agro-textile demand in the area has increased as a result of several factors. First of all, in European nations, sustainable agricultural methods and resource conservation are becoming more and more important. Agro-textiles have been widely used to enhance soil quality, reduce erosion, and preserve water resources. Additionally, the need for specialized agro-textiles has increased due to the growing use of protected cultivation methods like greenhouses and tunnels. These textiles protect crops, control humidity and temperature, and raise total crop yield.
