Biodegradable Mulch Films Market : Leading Players are BASF SE

MarketsandMarkets projects the global biodegradable mulch films market size to grow from USD 35.76 Million in 2016 to USD 52.43 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.95% from 2016 to 2021. The need to increase agricultural production by eco-friendly means is boosting the demand for biodegradable mulch films. 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. Biodegradable mulch films, without having any adverse impact on the environment, assist in improving crop quality and enhancing agricultural productivity by minimizing soil erosion, providing nutrients, increasing soil temperature, and suppressing the growth of weeds.
