"Innovative Market Solutions to Help Businesses Make Informed Decisions"
Biodegradable mulch films are used in agriculture industry to maintain soil temperature, prevent loss of moisture, improve crop yield, and limit growth of weeds. Biodegrable mulch film offers environment friendly alternative to the conventional polyethylene mulch films. In contrast to polyethylene mulch films, which are removed after the use, biodegradable mulch films are tilled into the soil where they degrade with time. Rising concerns regarding the residues left behind by the conventional films is expected to increase the demand for the biodegradable mulch films.
The market for biodegradable mulch film is driven due to the rising demand from agriculture industry. Biodegradable mulch film offers several benefits including, maintaining soil temperature, sustaining nutritions in soil, speed up germination process, cost efficient, reduce water consumption, and reduce the use of pestcides and herbicides. The above mentioned properties will drive the demand for biodegradable mulch films.
Key Market Driver -
Rising demand for biodegradable films from agriculture industry to drive the market.
Key Market Restraint -
Improper use of plasticizers in the production would restrict the market growth.
Improper use of plasticizers in the production of biodegradable mulch films is expected to act as a market restraint.
