Biodegradable mulch film market is likely to grow 52.43 million USD by 2021 according to market forecasts

Mulching is a technique used to cover the soil surface around crops to create optimum conditions for crop growth. The usage of biodegradable mulch films is an eco-friendly mulching technique to carry out controlled agriculture on limited arable land, with limited irrigation. With the ability to self-degrade at the end of the cycle, it avoids the removal and disposal of plastic.

Starch-based mulch films have become popular with starch being an inexpensive and abundant natural polymer that can produce a film structure. In addition, it also degrades into harmless products when placed in contact with soil microorganisms.

High amylose content in starch helps in the formation of strong and flexible biodegradable mulch films.

The high demand of thermoplastic starch in the biodegradable mulch films market can be attributed to its low cost, renewability, abundance, biodegradability, and availability from agricultural crops. Additionally, the environmental issues concerning the use of conventional synthetic polymers have shifted the focus of growers toward the adoption of biodegradable materials made from the renewable resources.

This has driven the growth of thermoplastic starch in the biodegradable mulch film market.

Fruits & vegetables is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the biodegradable mulch films market from 2016 to 2021

Fruits & vegetables segment is estimated to have the largest share in the biodegradable mulch films market in 2015 and the current trend is expected to follow during the forecast period. The market for biodegradable mulch films for the growth of fruits & vegetables is very promising as their application to these crops is convenient (due to the perennial nature of crops in most cases) and sustainable.

Biodegradable mulch films improve the quality of produce and reduce fruit rot by preventing contact between fruit and soil.

Significant growth for biodegradable mulch films is observed in the Asia-Pacific region

Asia-Pacific has a high growth potential for biodegradable mulch films. China is among the leading countries for biodegradable mulch films as the country faces industrial growth and urbanization which have led to higher standards of living among consumers, resulting in rise in demand for food products.

This in turn drives the market for biodegradable mulch films. In addition, biodegradable mulch films do not produce wastes that require disposal, and hence represent a sustainable ecological mulching alternative and wide acceptance in the region.

Biodegradable mulch films have a favorable growth in this region.
