Why Do Many Agricultural Film Suppliers Refrain From Investing in the Middle East & Africa?

“Political Instability and Lack of High-volume Agricultural Activity Compared to Other Regions”

Political instability has long troubled all kinds of businesses in the Middle East and African region and this trend goes for agricultural film companies as well. Constantly changing political views affect trade relations with different countries around the world and create an unfavorable supply chain situation for agricultural film suppliers looking to do business in Middle Eastern and African countries.

Africa is home to some fertile lands but the same cannot be stated for Middle Eastern countries as their land mostly comprises hot deserts, which no one cultivates. However, the adoption of advanced modern controlled agriculture techniques is rising in the Middle East & Africa region, which is projected to create an opportune scenario for agricultural film manufacturers and distributors by the end of the study period.

Country-wise Insights

South Africa is projected to be a highly rewarding space for agricultural film suppliers across the study period and GCC countries are also projected to provide good sales opportunities for companies in the long run as they reduce their reliance on food imports.

Should Agricultural Film Companies Target GCC Countries?

“Efforts to Improve Local Food Supply Promoting Agricultural Film Demand”

Attribute GCC Countries
Market Value (2023) US$ 199.8 Million
Growth Rate (2023 to 2033) 2.7% CAGR
Projected Sales (2033) US$ 26743.8 Million

GCC countries rely heavily on imports of almost all kinds of agricultural produce to feed their population. These countries are now focusing on reducing their reliance on food imports by restructuring their food supply chains and launching incentives and subsidies for people engaging in local farming and agricultural businesses, which is projected to uplift shipments of agricultural films over the coming years.

What Makes South Africa Key for Agricultural Film Manufacturers?

“Availability of Sizeable Agricultural Land Offering Lucrative Growth Scope”

Attribute South Africa
Estimated Sales (2023) US$ 227.8 Million
Growth Rate (2023 to 2033) 3.2% CAGR
Projected Sales (2033) US$ 313.2 Million

South Africa has more agricultural land on the African continent than any other African country, which makes it a rewarding space for agricultural film suppliers in the long run. The country is known for its export of maize, chicory roots, and grapefruit. The launch of new efforts to improve the food security of the country just like many other African economies is projected to bolster demand for agricultural films as they play an important role in modern agriculture.

The hike in global demand for agricultural produce to feed the expanding world population is projected to act in favor of agricultural space in South Africa as the returns for this country are majorly driven by agricultural exports. The aforementioned prospect could also augment shipments of agricultural films across the study period.
