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 market 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.

Target Audience
