Often when people talk about films – it is perceived to be plastic of various thickness rectangle or square in shape. Plastic films consist of a broad category of materials that can be simple or complex depending on the design as per demands of a particular product or package. Film are made with different resins, each of which has a unique combination of properties that makes it compatible for certain applications. For example, low density polyethylene (LDPE) film, Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) film. But since such films are not biodegradable and are not apt for to be used in for agricultural purpose, biodegradable mulch film were produced for some specific purpose. Biodegradable plastic mulches that are commercially available are films which are made of plant starch; these are prepared by using conventional plastics processing technology. However, due to the poor mechanical properties of starch, including its brittleness, starch must be blended with other polymers and/or plasticizers to make it more sustainable and thus capable enough to be used. Biodegradable mulch film due to its chemical properties and characteristics is least harmful when used for agricultural purposes. Considering its beneficial use and unique characteristics it is anticipated that biodegradable mulch film market will register comparatively high CAGR.

Biodegradable Mulch Film Market: Drivers and Restraints
Primary driver for biodegradable mulch film is its extensive use in agricultural purpose. Use of biodegradable mulch film has many benefits – it helps in maintaining soil temperature, speed up the germination and cultivation cycles, long-term sustaining of nutritious soil, cost and labor efficient, eliminate or reduce the use of herbicides and pesticides, reduce water consumption, keep fertilizers and nutrients closer to the plant, prevent fruits & vegetables from direct contact with the soil. Countries such as in Spain, Australia etc. biodegradable mulch film are used extensively in order to benefit the cultivation process in agriculture.
Involvement of plasticizers in manufacturing of biodegradable mulch film can make it harmful, inappropriate use of chemicals by manufacturer in order to make profits, lack of awareness among farmers about the benefits of biodegradable mulch film, high price of biodegradable films are few possible factors which can act as restraint for the growth of biodegradable mulch film market.
