A shade net is generally a synthetic fiber net made up of HDPE plastic, which reduces the intensity of direct sunlight according to the necessity of crops or others. Shade nets are used to protect agro products such as plants, vegetables, fruits, and flowers from birds, insects, weather, etc. Therefore, the global shade net market is influenced by the driving factors of agro business. Synthetic fibers used in the manufacturing of shade nets are long-lasting, durable, are easy to install, and have high tensile strength, which drives the demand for these nets.
Some plants and crops get affected when they are directly exposed to excessive sunlight, and this increases the demand for shade nets. Poultry farming, commercial farming, and sedentary farming are also done under shade nets. These nets provide uniform shade leading to the better yield of crops. There has been increase in demand from end users such as waterparks, restaurant-resorts, car parking businesses, and playgrounds for the purpose of shading and fencing. More than 20% of fibers from the textile industry is believed to be utilized for shade nets.
The global shade net market is forecast to grow, owing to the expanding agro-business and technological developments in agricultural processes. The continuous rise in population has increased the demand for agricultural goods. Technological developments in agricultural processes are also increasing the demand for shade nets. Agro shade nets, hail protection nets, thermal nets, insect proofing nets, bird protection nets, and UV stabilized agro ropes are the varieties of shade nets, and are developed according to the requirements of end users.
The demand for shade nets has also increased from non-agriculture sectors for fencing, shading, and safety. The global shade net market is also driven by the building and construction industry for safety purposes. Some roads are also covered with shade nets to protect them from excess wind that causes disturbance while driving. Increasing safety rules and regulations by road safety authorities are also expected to drive the growth of the global shade net market.
