Biodegradable Mulch Films Market to Profit As Quality of Agricultural Soil Decline :

Pune, India, September 2019, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Biodegradable Mulch Films Market.

Market Scope

Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals that the Global Biodegradable Mulch Films Market is likely to expand at a 7.6% CAGR by 2022. The contribution of biodegradable mulch films in restoring ecological balance in farming practice is observed to be the primary driver for its market. However, the lack of mechanical strength can slow down its adoption rate. But, the rise in need for organic farming practices is likely to accelerate the growth of the global biodegradable mulch films market over the evaluation period.

Industry News

August 2019

BASF, a Germany-based chemical company and one of the largest producers in the world, is offering certified soil-biodegradable plastic for manufacturing mulch films.

Market Insights

One of the greatest advantages of biodegradable mulch films is that it can convert low fertile land into fertile land. As a result of modernization, the availability of agricultural land has become limited. The materials used in these films aid in conservation moisture and inhibit the growth of weeds, thereby making the land ready for cultivation. Hence, increase in urban population, declining soil quality, and fast-paced industrialization are factors that are likely to cast a positive impact on the market growth.

Biodegradable mulch films reduce the ecological footprint. This, is noted to boost the growth of its global market. Benefits such as maintaining soil temperature, accelerated cultivation cycle, and long term sustainability are expected to favor the market growth. Biodegradable mulch films are gaining popularity in farming practices due to its ability to enhance soil fertility by keeping nutrient supply close to the plant. In addition, mulch films cut down water intake by plants. Thus, in case in situations such as low rainfall, these films can be of great importance. Moreover, biodegradable mulch film can also streamline the process of irrigation.

However, mechanical fragility, lack of awareness about the product, and their high cost can limit the growth of the market. But, high-cash market players are making a hefty investment in modifying the films by eliminating the limitations of biodegradable mulch films that can catalyze the market growth in the foreseeable future.
