簡介

在2020年至2025年的預測期內,可生物降解多層膜市場的規模預計將以8.5%的複合年增長率增長。土壤中的生物可降解性為農業和園林產品帶來了巨大的好處。可生物降解的覆蓋膜在易於使用和操作效率方面得到了迅速的改善,因為它們可以在使用後在生物塑料覆蓋物中進行種植,而不是從土壤中回收再利用。但是,尚未充分研究使用可生物降解覆蓋物對環境的潛在影響,並且目前可以使用國際標準(例如ISO 17088,ASTM D6400,ISO 17556和ASTM D 5988)來驗證安全性。目前處於調查階段。

溫室項目的擴張正在推動市場。根據世界溫室蔬菜統計,全世界有1,228,000英畝的溫室栽培空間。可生物降解的塑料多片段在土壤完全被生物降解之前會物理改變土壤。但是,PE塑料碎片會降低土壤的滲透性和吸水率,從而通過積累作用影響溫室人工林的土壤生態系統,並最終影響植物的發芽和生長。因此,該領域對生物可降解薄膜市場的需求將增加。

政府對全球有機覆蓋的監管支持正在推動市場。例如,在歐洲,EN 17033是針對農業和園藝業中可生物降解的薄膜開發的新產品標準,其中規定了要求的要求和測試方法。該標準旨在使農民,分銷商和有關方面清楚理解。 EN 17033可能會取代歐洲其他現有的國家標準。

高安裝成本是市場增長以及在製造過程中添加有害添加劑的挑戰。無法以高的初始成本保護多層膜阻礙了增長。另外,隨著農民的意識增強,在生產可生物降解的薄膜中使用增塑劑以獲利有望對市場構成挑戰。

該報告對可生物降解的多膜市場進行了調查,並提供了市場概況,以及按聚合物,應用,地區和進入市場的公司概況的趨勢。

The biodegradable mulch film market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period 2021 - 2026. Biodegradability in the soil provides huge benefits for agricultural and horticultural products. Biodegradable mulching films has made rapid improvement in terms of usability that allows cultivators to plow in bioplastic mulch after use, instead of collecting them from the field for recycling, which improves operational efficiency. However, the potential environmental consequences of using biodegradable mulches have not been thoroughly studied, and the international standards, such as ISO 17088, ASTM D6400, ISO 17556, and ASTM D5988, for validating their safeness are in the ongoing research phase.

Key Highlights

  • The expansion of the greenhouse project drives the market. According to the World Greenhouse Vegetable Statistics, there are 1,228,000 acres of greenhouse growing space for production worldwide. Biodegradable plastic mulch fragments physically modify soil before they are fully biodegraded. However, PE plastic fragments reduce soil infiltration and water absorption, by which the accumulation may affect soil ecosystems in greenhouse plantation and ultimately, plant germination and growth. Thus, the demand for biodegradable mulch film market increases in this segment.
  • Supportive regulation from the governments for organic mulching across the world is driving the market. For instance, in Europe, EN 17033 is the new product standard made for biodegradable mulch films used in agriculture and horticulture and specifies the necessary requirements and test methods. The standard is designed for a clear reference to farmers, distributors, and stakeholders. EN 17033 is more likely to replace other pre-existing national standards in Europe.
  • High installation cost, along with the addition of harmful additives during the manufacturing process, challenges the growth of the market. The deficit of availability of such mulch films with high initial costs is challenging the growth. Moreover, the involvement of plasticizers in the manufacturing of biodegradable mulch film to make profits may challenge the market with growing awareness among the farmers.

Key Market Trends

Fruits and Vegetables to Account for a Significant Share

  • The agricultural industry has recognized the major benefits of biodegradable mulch films in the reduction of soil compaction, fertilizer leaching, moisture evaporation, weed problems, and increasing soil temperature, which helps to obtain higher yield and increase early growth in crops, while providing the additional benefit of biodegrading.
  • Due to the large proportion of mulch films used in fruits and vegetables and all the environmental problems related to their disposal, the biodegradable mulch films seem to be the best solution for replacing the conventional polyethylene mulches.
  • Additionally, traditional mulch film waste causes an environmental problem, because it is very contaminated with soil and vegetable residues, turning the recycling process expensive and time-consuming, being an uneconomic activity. These biodegradable mulch films have the advantage of being disposed directly into the soil or into a composting system at the end of their lifetime and undergo biodegradation by soil microorganisms. This saves time and money both.
  • BASF offers the polymer Ecovio M, which is made up of polymer PLA (polylactic acid), which contains biobased content, and it is completely biodegradable. The advantage is that the farmer does not have to laboriously collect the mulch films after harvest but can plow it directly, which helps in saving time and money.
  • Additionally, a major concern for large-scale adoption of plastic mulch for crop productivity enhancement in the trans-Himalayan region could be the resultant pollution hazards caused by residual plastic film. In July 2019, the DRDO announced to do its research for the adoption of low-cost biodegradable mulching materials on crop growth. This further increases the market growth.
  • Furthermore, Italy exports yearly tons of fresh fruits and vegetables to other countries, and players, such as Novamont, offer Mater-Bi mulch film for processing vegetables. Italy is the main European producer of tomato. According to the Associazione Nazionale Industriali Conserve Alimentari Vegetali, the export value of tomato products in Italy from the first half-year of 2018 to the first half-year of 2019 increased from EUR 779.5 million to EUR 847.6 million.

Asia-Pacific to Witness Significant Market Growth

  • The Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest rate in the biodegradable mulch film, as the increasing population, especially in China and India, resulted in the increasing demand for food, which leads to an increased usage of biodegradable mulch films in crop production.
  • The government is also taking necessary steps to improve the productivity of crops. In January 2020, in China, the government's National Development and Reform Commission stated that China wants to promote non-plastic products, including biodegradable mulch film, in the agriculture sector.
  • Additionally, in India, the government estimated the quantity production for pulses for the coming years, which significantly raises the demand for biodegradable mulch films. According to Seed Division, 3,975,165 quintal pulses are to be farmed during 2020-2021, with an increment of 308,947 quintals compared to the year 2019-2020.
  • Furthermore, the Singapore-headquartered biotech startup RWDC industry announced that it closed a USD 13 million Series A2 round deal co-led by venture capital firms, Vickers Venture Partners and WI Harper Group. The money was primarily being used to expand RWDC's PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate) production capacity in 2019.

Competitive Landscape

The biodegradable mulch film market is fragmented, and the major players are using various strategies, such as new product launches and agreements, to increase their footprints in this market. Key players are BASF SE, BioBag International AS, etc. Recent developments in the market are -

  • Aug 2019 - BASF announced a certified soil-biodegradable plastic for mulch films known as Ecovio M 2351, which is made from its biodegradable co-polyester known as PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate) Ecoflex and other major biodegradable polymers that are based on renewable raw materials. Mulch films which are made of Ecovio M 2351 can be plowed into soil after its mechanical harvest, as naturally occurring micro-organisms recognize the structure of the film in the soil.
