Mushroom materials are developed from agricultural waste and other suitable materials which are completely biodegradable and free from any volatile organic compound content. These materials are the suitable alternatives for plastic and other synthetic based materials. The mushroom materials manufacturing process involves mixing agricultural by-products such as woody biomass, husks, cellulosic biomass, and other residual biomass with self-digesting crop residuals and other biomaterials. Fungi grows on the mixture for some days and the objects or molds are further cured to manufacture desired pieces needed for electronic components, spare parts and other accessories or components. These materials can be fabricated or molded into boards needed for furniture industry with considerable durability and working life.

Mushroom Materials Market: Drivers & Restraints
Mushrooms are good to eat, but their roots may be far more significant to manhood. They can be used to make mushroom based building materials that are stronger than concrete, have more insulating power than fiberglass, and are completely compostable. The drivers identified in growth of mushroom materials are eco-friendly characteristics, easier workability, and light weight than conventional materials which makes it easy to transport to distances. However, limited availability of the mushroom roots and other agricultural waste are the major constraints for the mushroom materials market.
