The integration of living systems into material science for the purpose of synthesizing functional materials from biological resources has received considerable attention over the last couple of decades. For instance, mycelium-based fungal materials are produced by growing the vegetative portion of mushroom-forming fungi on a variety of organic substrates. These fungi are well-known for degrading agricultural wastes such as straw and sawdust.

Mycelium refers to the hyphal mass or network of hyphae that form the fungus’s body (thallus). The mycelium of parasitic fungi grows on the host’s surface and spreads between cells, referred to as intercellular mycelium. The pure mycelium materials are entirely biodegradable and compostable at home without plastic or fibre additives. Additionally, mycelium-based materials are lightweight and biodegradable, making them a more environmentally friendly option than petroleum-based packaging materials. These mycelium materials are a more sustainable alternative to plastics and leather. Biocomposite materials derived from mycelium have been developed and are being widely applied in various fields, including construction, manufacturing, agriculture, and biomedicine.

Market Dynamics:

Mycelium is lightweight, easy to mould, and inexpensive to produce – all of which are desirable characteristics for packaging materials. These characteristics also contribute to mycelium’s cost competitiveness with polystyrene foam, a long-established and dependable material used in all aspects of high-throughput material delivery. The market is primarily driven by increasing efforts to minimise the use of non-biodegradable materials, rapid adoption of eco-friendly technologies, and increased government initiatives to innovate mycelium-based products. Increased emphasis on unique flavour in processed foods and beverages, as well as a growing preference for organic and natural ingredients and flavours in food products, are also expected to create significant growth opportunities over the forecast period.

North America is expected to dominate the mycelium market in the coming years, followed by Europe, owing to the high demand for mycelium-based food products and companies’ increasing efforts to develop mycelium materials. Additionally, the Asia Pacific regional market is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period, owing to growing initiatives for the development of mycelium-based products and rising demand for natural products and eco-friendly packaging solutions.
