Rigid plastics segment is estimated to be the most widely used material for agricultural packaging

Plastics are the most preferred packaging material used for pesticides and fertilizers, owing to the properties such as medium-barrier strength, cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and inertness. The packaging of chemical pesticides consumes a large amount of packaging material, when compared to fertilizers as fertilizers are usually packaged in larger volumes while pesticides are available across a wide volume range. Pesticides are majorly prepared in liquid formulation, which is most often packed in plastic bottles, cans, or containers. Rigid plastics such as HDPE are used for manufacturing such packaging solutions. Hence, the rigid plastics segment dominated the market share in plastics.

The composite materials segment is projected to be the fastest-growing from 2017 to 2022

Composites are packaging materials which comprise two or more layers of packagingsolutions, thereby providing a high barrier property to the packaging product. Increase in shelf life of agrochemicals and biologicals can be achieved by incorporating high barrier composites as an optimum packaging solution. Increasing adoption of premium techniques for the packaging of agrochemicals has proved to be a major driver for the composites market, and the advent of biologicals in crop protection field has opened new avenues for the introduction of composites in the packaging market.

Medium-barrier strength segment is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period

Medium-barrier strength materials such as plastics and some composites are widely used for packaging purposes across various industries, including agriculture. Their molding and low cost properties in comparison to other materials such as metals are the major reasons for the adoption of these materials by both the manufacturers and end use farmers on a wide scale. Composite materials are increasingly gaining interest among agrochemical manufacturers; however, the share of packaging in the agrochemical value chain is at a higher scale, when compared to plastic packaging. The demand for medium-barrier strength materials is expected to continue its dominance in next few years; hence, the segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the market for agricultural packaging at the highest rate through 2023

Asia Pacific is the largest consumer of agricultural packaging owing to the large production capacities of agrochemicals prevailing in China and India, which makes it easier for most private, local companies to launch their products. The high labor power, fragmented packaging industry, and easy availability of packaging materials in Asia Pacific countries have resulted in significantly lower production costs. Additionally, factors such as growth in demand for biologicals, increase in trade opportunities of agrochemicals, and efficient infrastructure are the key competitive advantages for the Asia Pacific market.

The market for agricultural packaging in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.17% from 2018 to 2023, owing to the increasing expansions of major agrochemical as well as agricultural packaging players in this market and growing demand for biologicals that has opened opportunities for the development of better packaging techniques in this industry.
