The waterproofing ability of the plastic tarpaulin sheets is a major driver of the global plastic tarpaulin market. Plastic tarpaulin is widely used to cover or waterproof large containers and wood piles. They can also be used for rain collection, winterizing windows and doors, expedient shower curtains, and closing off rooms. Plastic tarpaulin sheets can also be used as shelters and ground sheets. Some of the other drivers influencing the global plastic tarpaulin market include increase in population, higher rate of urbanization, and higher economic growth.
A tarpaulin is a large sheet of strong, flexible, waterproof or water-resistant material, such as polyethylene, or canvas or polyester coated with urethane. The word “tarpaulin” is formed by the mixture of two words “tarp” which means tarred canvas and “palling” which means fabric, mainly used to cover objects. Plastic tarpaulin is a polyethylene film, available in clear, blue, black and mixed shades, and in various thicknesses. The global tarpaulin market can be segmented on the basis of types, applications and regions.
On the basis of types, the global tarpaulin market can be divided into poly tarpaulin, mesh tarpaulin, canvas tarpaulin, and vinyl tarpaulin. Tarpaulins are used in a variety of applications and industries. Some products are used as lumber tarps, hay tarps, tent canopies, snow fences, or truck tarps. Plastic tarpaulins serve as boat tarps and pool covers. Boat tarps are generally made up of polyethylene or canvas, as the tarp material is 100% waterproof and serves heavy duty in order to withstand harsh weather conditions and strong winds. Tarp pool covers are an efficient way to keep the leaves and debris out of the pool. The tarp pool cover is fully waterproof, which keep unwanted water to fill the swimming pool and prevent overflow. Plastic tarpaulins are also used in construction projects to cover bridges, buildings, and water towers.
The inexpensive modern tarpaulins are made from woven polyethylene. The use of polyethylene in the manufacturing of plastic tarpaulin has become so common that it is known as polytarp at various places. Polyethylene tarps or poly tarps are made up of polyethylene, nylon sheet threading inside the material with a rope strengthening around the boundary of the poly tarp material.
Preference of blue or mixed coloured tarpaulin by users is a major trend witnessed in the global plastic tarpaulin market. The rainy season accommodates the highest plastic tarpaulin sale, mainly due to its waterproof nature. The HDPE or the high density polyethylene tarpaulin is admirable for covering products and is used for protection against dust and moisture and can be used as a defensive covering in sectors such as infrastructure, agriculture, and automobiles, cover for machinery, floor spreads and others.
Moreover, plastic tarpaulin can be used to create a convenient greenhouse to increase the growing season. However, some of the plastic tarpaulin sheets can block the UV rays necessary for plants for greenhouse warming; hence, the user needs to ensure to use a proper brand of plastic tarpaulin to ensure plants are getting proper sunlight accordingly.
