Biodegradable Mulch Film Market Analysis
Biodegradable Mulch Film Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
Biodegradable mulch film is used to increase soil fertility, retain moisture, reduce weed growth, and regulate soil temperature. It is made out of plant starches and sugars or polyester fibers. Biodegradable mulch film helps reduce the amount of herbicides used in the farms as well as lessen the number of workers engaged in agriculture throughout the growing season. At the end of the season, the biodegradable mulch film gets degraded, and carbon dioxide and water are released into the atmosphere with no more harmful contents. No labors are required for the removal of decomposed waste as its get evaporated, thereby making it cost efficient as well.
One of the major drivers for biodegradable mulch film market is the significant demand from farming industry. Tablets and capsules are widely sold in blister packaging. The added advantages are product safety assurance and multiple product packaging.
Biodegradable Mulch Film Market Taxonomy
The global biodegradable mulch film market is segmented as follows,
On the basis of Biodegradable Plastics;
On the basis of Composition;
On the basis of Application;
The starch composition segment is expected to have the largest market share in terms of revenue over the forecast period owing to its wide availability, applications and low cost. Among the product type, thermoplastic starch is projected to have high CAGR attributed to its renewability, low cost and availability of crops.
Biodegradable Mulch Film Market Outlook
Various biodegradable mulch film manufacturing companies mainly focusing on product development and are implementing new innovations to achieve better market position in the global biodegradable mulch film market. In 2017, Walki, one of the leading producer of protective packaging materials, developed a new soil mulching solution based on biodegradable fiber, used for weed control and to improve soil conditions.
For instance, in August 2019, BASF SE launched biodegradable mulching film Ecovio M 2351. The mulch films consisting of the biodegradable co-polyester polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT) and other biodegradable polymers made from renewable raw materials. The naturally occurring microorganism utilizes PBAT as food and does not remain any bio-plastic in the soil.
In May 2019, BASF SE partnered with Lactips to
In May 2018, Novamont S.Pa. presented its biodegradable mulch film made of Mater-Bi in the international conference CIPA Congress 2018. MATER-BI is biodegradable and compostable bioplastics made using starches, cellulose, vegetable oils and their combinations.
In April 2012, Kingfa Sci & Tech Co Ltd launched 30,000 metric tons of capacity of 100 percent biodegradable EcoPond-branded polylactic acid/polybutylene succinic polymer into the Chinese market.
Some of the major players in the biodegradable mulch film market include BASF SE (Germany), BioBag International AS (Norway), Kingfa Sci & Tech Co Ltd (China), AEP Industries Inc. (U.S.), RKW SE (Germany), British Polythene Industries PLC (U.K.), Armando Alvarez (Spain), Al-Pack Enterprises Ltd. (Canada), Novamont S.Pa. (Italy), and AB Rani Plast OY (Finland), among others.
