Hello @Aveeva 

 

for the following area, you must need composer.json file

1) when you want to install the module using json

2) if you want to add your module to https://packagist.org or some think like service

3) if you want to sell module via Magento

 

Hope it will help you.

Hi @Aveeva 

Great, that you module is working fine.

Actually composer is used when you want to deploy your module using composer not manually copy paste folders. 

for more info:
https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.3/extension-dev-guide/build/composer-integration.html

You can make a package of module using composer.

I hope it will help you!

Hi @Aveeva 

Module enable/disable will work as well without composer.json.

But when you need to packaging module then it is required. By packaging you can install your mudule using
composer require Module_Name
composer install as well.
