Nonwoven weed control fabric market size is set to gain notable proceeds through 2022-2028 owing to higher application scope in the agriculture sector for increasing the yield and its quality. The growing focus of farmers on maintaining the growth stability of crops, like wheat, and rice has made way for numerous weed control mechanisms. There is also a surging need to eliminate unwanted seeds as it depletes the soil quality and its nutrient content.

Nonwoven weed control fabrics are widely used to offer great support to organic agriculture as they help in resisting weeds in an enhanced approach for yielding healthy food crops and products. They are durable, lightweight, tear-resistant, follow natural ground contours, and are easy to install. These fabrics are considered suitable for use under decks and walkways, as well as in landscaped beds.


Based on application, nonwoven weed control fabric market revenue from the nursery segment will grow owing to the surging number of stringent government regulations to emphasize the use of chemical-free and eco-friendly products. Ground covers are witnessing higher adoption in nurseries to control the growth of weeds and to reduce the use of weedicides. For instance, GreenPro Weed Barrier offers superior performance in comparison to traditional weed fabrics.


The usage of non-woven fabrics not only prevents the growth of weed but also provides advanced water and air permeability while allowing the soil to breathe as well as absorb moisture and nutrients from fertilizers. The growing utility to stabilize the soil along with maintaining its quality and nutrient content in nurseries will additionally contribute to the market development.

Regionally, the demand for nonwoven weed control fabrics is expected to soar in North America with the rising popularity of flower and food gardening along with the hiking consumer incomes, mainly the baby boomers, and married households. The surging number of nurseries in the U.S. is another crucial parameter driving the market expansion. According to estimates, the amount of nursery & garden store businesses across the U.S. reached 18,772 in 2022. The thriving preference for a diverse range of bulbs, seeds, and plants will also favor the regional product penetration.

Asia Pacific will record a significant nonwoven weed control fabric industry share through 2028 due to the expanding population and significant strides in the agricultural sector in the region. Non-woven fabrics are largely used in several agricultural applications for increasing yield, limiting the need for pesticides, and enhancing greenhouse production and efficiency. Apart from acting as protective materials, the fabrics shorten the maturation times and ensure a favorable environment for plant growth. The escalating focus on various economic weed management approaches, especially for rice will also drive the market growth.
