Clear/transparent mulch film market is the fastest growing market by type during 2015–2020
The clear/transparent mulch film type is projected to grow with the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. Clear/transparent mulch traps around 85% to 95% infrared radiations from the sun to keep the soil warm, conserve water, and suppress weed, leading to quicker crop yield and harvest. Black mulch films have the largest market share globally; these films are in high demand as they prevent the growth of weed on the farmland and also trap the sun’s energy to keep the soil warm for enhanced crop yield.
EVA segment depicts high potential for the mulch film market
The market for EVA is growing as it provides various advantages, such as softness, flexibility, clarity, and resisitance to crack & stress. There is a favorable demand for EVA in the Asia-Pacific region as this region has the fastest growth for mulch films. LLDPE has the largest market in mulch films. LLDPE is mostly preferred as its performance is better than its conventional counterpart, LDPE, and it has favorable production cost for farmers. LLDPE has more resistance and tensile strength which is better for crop production.
Significant growth for mulch films is observed in the Asia-Pacific region
Asia-Pacific has a high growth potential for mulch films. This region has many emerging countries, such as China and India, which have considerable cultivable land to grow crops. Moreover, China is among the leading countries for mulch films as the country faces industrial growth and urbanization which has led to the higher standards of living among consumers, resulting in the rise for food products. Biodegradable mulch films have a favorable growth in this region. Key players such as BASF SE (Germany) provides biodegradable mulch films in the country.
