According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mulch Film Market is accounted for $4.33 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $7.67 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Mulch films are plastic coverings designed for plants. These are designed to preserve the level of moisture in the soil. Due to evaporation, significant loss of soil moisture is observed which has raised the demand for mulch films in the agricultural areas. Also, to fulfill the need for food for the growing population, the demand for mulch films is increasing.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Rising demand for sustainable biopolymer mulch films


Focus on developing environment-friendly solutions by using compostable and soil-biodegradable plastic companies is increasing. The rising preference of consumers to use compostable polymer with bio-based elements is driving the mulch films market. Biopolymer mulch films are used to manufacture organic waste bags for various agricultural applications. There is increasing adoption of biopolymer mulch films in order to complete the loop of the food-value chain.

Restraint:

High cost


Mulch films are hard to find. This is what makes it more expensive to make them. The high cost of installation and adverse effects of plastics on the environment are the major factors among others restraining the market growth. As well as high prices of mulching films such as silver and the black mulching film are set to hamper their market growth in the upcoming years. Hence, owing to its high cost the low and middle-income farmers are unable to purchase.

Opportunity:

Technological advancements


Mulch films can be formed by co-extruded blown technology. This is one of the agricultural applications as they allow heat transmission during the packaging process. The layer pattern of multi-layer blown mulch films can be changed by raising the number of layers and modifying the polymer used. Makers of co-extrusion liners have been working hard to find new markets and improve product yields. Moreover, implementation of sustainable agriculture practices by farmers to use recycling methods for the production of crops.

The vegetables segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The vegetables segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to the increased use of mulch films in vegetable cultivation due to rising fresh vegetable production and fresh and frozen vegetable exports. Mulch films are mainly used for growing food and vegetable crops as many farmers use mulch films to maintain steady growth in vegetable production as a result of rising vegetable exports.

The biodegradable mulch films segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The biodegradable mulch films segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to its organic ingredients that are eco-friendly. Semi biodegradable mulch films have polyethylene and are cost-effective therefore they are used effectively. Biodegradable mulch films are developed from organic material derived from plants & animals and are decomposed automatically into the soil

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of modern cultivation techniques in this region. The market for biodegradable mulch film in the region will grow because of the increasing incorporation of environment-friendly products for agriculture applications by the countries of this region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the growing population and shrinking agricultural land. China, being densely populated was the leading consumer of mulch films followed by India due to rapid urbanization and improved living standards. The country faces industrial growth and urbanization which has led to the higher standards of living among consumers, resulting in the rise of food products.
