AMI: Agricultural Films

Plastics industry consultants Applied Market Information Ltd. (AMI) has highlighted the increasing importance of plastics in the area of agriculture and horticulture with a new in-depth report on the Agricultural films market in Europe. This first of its kind report details the EUR 2 billion agricultural films market which accounts for over half a million tonnes of polymer-based films every year.

Over the past 60 years, agricultural output and productivity has significantly increased and plastic agricultural film for silage, mulch and greenhouse applications has made a substantial contribution to this development. The use of plastic films has been notable in the horticultural industry, as well as the beef and dairy sector, contributing to continuously increasing yields. Plastic films have also enabled the extension of cultivation in terms of the growing season and the location for a variety of plants through the use of protective mulch and greenhouse films.

In addition to its consultancy work in agricultural films, AMI also organises an annual conference for the industry. The next event will be held in Spain in November 2012.
