The agriculture nets market is studied for the following region: 

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Rest of World 

North America region is expected to account for a significant and fastest growing the global agriculture nets market. Migration of people from rural to urban areas, rising labor costs and shortage of skilled labor in most developing countries are driving agriculture nets sales. The shortage of agricultural labor and its rising cost are among the main reasons for the increasing involvement of consumers in the agricultural industry. Increasing need for operational efficiency and rising labor costs are expected to increase the demand for controlled climate and protective farming. This has further driven market growth in the North America region. Considering the simple economics of supply and demand and the movement of labor from cities to rural areas, the cost of agricultural labor is directly related to the percentage of a country's total population employed in agriculture. To reduce the dependence on human labor, farm owners invest in agricultural structures, reducing the time and effort spent on farming and leading to the market dominance of North America in the foreseen period.
