Drivers & Restraints
Revenue for the global tarpaulin sheets market is driven by growth in end use sectors, such as agriculture, building & construction, automotive and other industries. Moreover, growing applications of tarpaulin sheets in transportation & logistics sector has led to the growth of the global tarpaulin sheets market owing to speedy development of modes of transit, especially in emerging economies. Also, the probability of the introduction of an immediate alternative for tarpaulin sheets in the market is considerably low.
