Biodegradable mulch film has a positive growth in this region. China is the dominating countries for mulch films as the country faces urbanization and industrial growth which has accelerated the food demand and has changed the lifestyle of people in the region.

Rising greenhouse agriculture, increasing requirements for floriculture & horticulture and uncertain climatic conditions are expected to propel the market penetration in Europe. Furthermore, rising use of greenhouse films for better cultivation and growing crop under the controlled atmospheric condition is also expected to fuel the mulch film market during the forecast period. Europe generated around 15,000 tons of waste according to Agriculture Plastics Environment, in 2016 that remained on agricultural land. Rising inorganic mulching waste in the agricultural lands led to harmful effects on crop yields and plant growth. However, shifting consumer trend towards biodegradable materials in the region is projected to drive the industry growth.
