Agrotextiles is one of the smaller categories of technical textiles, with consumption accounting for around 8.2% by volume and 6.4% by value of the global technical textiles market in 2010. However, the sector is among those with the strongest growth predictions based on the projected increase in global population and the demand for higher quality food. In developing countries, such as India, China and Brazil, the market is estimated to be growing by around 8-10% a year.

Written by Geoff Fisher, this in-depth report, with more than 100 pages and over 20 tables, features an overview of the global market for agrotextiles and the wide-ranging use of textile materials used in the agriculture and fishing sectors. It also covers key market drivers and the latest developments in the main application areas.

Published in March 2013, the publication also features profiles of around 90 leading suppliers of agrotextiles.
