The demand for polycarbonate is increasing as it is significantly stronger and more durable. The average durability of polycarbonate lasts for around fifty years, and requires very low maintenance. There are various grades of polycarbonate such as high heat polycarbonate, impact modified polycarbonate, and optical grades among others. For a greenhouse that has polycarbonate glazing where the polycarbonate is made from new raw materials and not recycled materials, the life of the polycarbonate increases. UV (Ultraviolet) treated polycarbonate provides better clarity than polyethylene film and nearly as much clarity as glass.
Key to success of the commercial greenhouse market in the European region
Europe is the fastest growing market for commercial greenhouses. The evolution of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) and commercial greenhouses took place in Europe due to the favorable climate for the adoption of greenhouse automation technologies and encouragement from governments. A large number of Europe-based companies have invested significantly in the research of various areas of greenhouse automation, including climate control, lighting, and material handling, among others. As a result of the all-round development in CEA, Europe has become a major market for commercial greenhouse technologies.
