Mulch Films Market: Overview

Mulch films are increasingly used to modify soil temperature, minimize weed growth, and improve crop yield expanding population and the subsequent increase in food demand is driving sustained growth in the global agriculture industry. Mulch films are organic mulching materials derived from plants and animals, offering benefits such as weed control, maintenance of soil structure, and prevention of crops from soil contamination. Rising demand in greenhouse application coupled with rising environmental concerns about synthetic counterparts and rising population coupled with a shrinking agricultural land due to rapid urbanization and industrialization are the major factors propelling the growth of mulch films market.

The global mulch films market is anticipated to register fastest growth over the forecast period due to increasing crop productivity demand, rise in population and the increase in the per capita income of consumers are some of the factors driving the growth of the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, market players are responding to these new opportunities of increasing crop output by expanding their global presence and product lines. New farming methods and increase in awareness regarding mulch films is also driving the growth of the market over the upcoming years.

Increasing advancement in farming techniques coupled with growing awareness on crop wastage reduction is expected to have a positive influence on mulch films market. However, cost of installation of these films is relatively high which is considered as a restraining factor accountable to hamper growth of mulch films market. On the other hand, high concern towards environment and its surroundings, use of biodegradable mulch films in is projected to rise which is further anticipated to propel growth of mulch films market with more growth opportunities in the forthcoming period.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the global mulch films market During the COVID-19 period, the global economy may be affected in three different ways: directly as it relates to production and demand, indirectly as it relates to supply chains and markets, and because of its financial consequences on firms and financial markets. Across globe, the production activities have slowed down with the intention of restricting the spread of coronavirus, which affected the production, but the manufacturers are back to normal currently

 Analysts monitoring the situation around the world explain that producers will be rewarded after the COVID-19 crisis. Mulch films are widely used in the agriculture end-use industry. Though the pandemic has affected major manufacturing sectors, on contrary, the demand for food, especially raw fruits and vegetables increased multifold. This also fueled the demand for mulch films as it provides an edge over conventional producing methods.

Mulch Films Market: Growth Drivers

Increase in Government Initiatives

Government initiatives are increasing the demand of agricultural crops which acts as a driver for the mulch films market during the forecast period. Due to heavy pressure of population and increasing demand for food at a fast rate owing to which the governments are spending heavily on initiatives and investments in the field of agriculture.

Mulch Films Market: Restraints

High cost of installation is hampering the market growth

High films disposal cost coupled with adverse chemical effect-based mulch films is expected to hamper the growth of mulch films market. Due to its high cost the low- and middle-income farmers are unable to purchase it which in turn is expected to restrain its market growth over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to create a further rise in the price of Mulch Films owing to temporary shutdown of production facilities, labor movement, transport and roadblocks and eventually causing a disrupt in the supply chain of mulch films thereby increasing its price and restraining its market growth.

Mulch Films Market: Challenges

High service & treatment charges in mulches to hamper the market growth

The charges connected with mulches are challenging the growth of mulch films market during the forecast period. This is mostly due to high operational costs and service charges. Technology is always improving, which has an impact on the cost because they must keep up with the latest equipment and technologies to maintain a competitive advantage.

Global Mulch Films Market: Segmentation

The global mulch films market is segregated based on type, applications, element, and region.

By type, market is segmented into clear/transparent, black, colored, degradable, and others. Clear/transparent mulch is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to their ability to block sun's infrared radiations. The films play a vital role in maintaining soil warmth, reducing growth of weeds, and conserving water, thereby leading to easy harvesting and increased crop yield.

By applications market is divided into horticulture and agriculture. Agriculture segment dominated the mulch films market and is growing at a highest CAGR during forecast period. Owing to large population and income increases, expanding urbanization, and dietary changes, food demand is expected to witness lucrative growth over the upcoming years.

By element, is segmented into LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, EVA, PLA PHA, and others. LLDPE accounted for the largest share of the mulch films market. The EVA segment is projected to grow with the highest CAGR from during the forecast period due to high flexibility and strong weatherability which has led to the growth in demand for EVA. The rise in demand for plastic mulch films will lead to the growth of mulch films in the coming years.
