Why download our 2nd release of our Trends in Agricultural Plastics eBook on the increased use of biodegradable mulch?

Without a doubt, the use of biodegradable plastics is on the rise, but for how much? The publication “Soil Degradable Bioplastics for a Sustainable Modern Agriculture” published by Springer in 2017 noted at the time that “although agriculture soil degradable plastics have still a less than one digit share of the market of plastics, they are growing at very fast rate, and the properties of biodegradable compostable plastics have even opened new fields of applications which were not possible with polyolefin-based plastics (for example, soil degradable nursing, and transplanting pots).”

Another piece of interesting data about the growth in the use of biodegradable mulch is found in a recent study titled “Biodegradable Mulch Film Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Crop Type and Segment Forecasts, 2016-2024” published by Grand View Research. This publication highlights that the “global biodegradable mulch film market size was valued at USD 44.65 million in 2019 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2020 to 2024. Increasing demand for greenhouse applications along with rising environmental concerns over synthetic counterparts is expected to drive market growth over the next eight years. The rising population and decrease of agricultural lands due to rapid urbanization and industrialization have forced farmers to increase productivity.”

These data lead us to include biodegradable mulch as a clear trend in the agricultural market, not only because it is environmentally friendly -a topic of worldwide interest in all sectors- but also because of its advantages and indirect cost savings, which we will see in detail in this article.

We also invite you to download the first installment of our eBook on Trends in Agricultural Plastics where we talk about the reduction in the use of plastics in the production of agricultural products.
