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.
