I don't know for sure, but I'd wager it's for sound deadening and aerodynamics. It appears to be the same material used inside the wheel wells. I've seen that this material has been in use by Ford for a couple of years.
I think it's a sheet of plastic with a textured felt covering. Only time will tell on it's lifespan.
