Biodegradable Plastics Market Research

The biodegradable plastics industry is a sector of the plastics industry that focuses on developing and manufacturing plastics.

NEW CASTLE, DELAWARE, UNITED STATES, September 6, 2023/ — Eco-Friendly nature and rise in consumer adoption of biodegradable plastics, high demand of biodegradable plastic in food packaging application, and favorable government policies toward bio-plastic drive the growth of the global biodegradable plastics market. However, high cost of biodegradable plastic hampers the market growth. On the contrary, rise in CSR activities and decreasing dependence on petroleum resource is expected to create lucrative opportunities for market players in the future.

The biodegradable plastics industry is a sector of the plastics industry that focuses on developing and manufacturing plastics that can naturally break down and decompose in the environment. Biodegradable plastics are seen as a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastics, which can persist in the environment for hundreds of years, causing pollution and harm to ecosystems. The biodegradable plastics industry has gained significant attention and growth in recent years due to increased concerns about plastic pollution and its impact on the planet.

– Polylactic Acid (PLA): Made from renewable resources like corn starch or sugarcane, PLA is one of the most common biodegradable plastics. It is used in a wide range of applications, including food packaging, disposable cutlery, and 3D printing.

– Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA): PHA plastics are produced by bacteria and can be used in various applications, such as packaging materials, agricultural films, and medical devices.

– Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate (PBAT): PBAT is often used in combination with other biodegradable materials to improve their properties. It is commonly used in compostable bags and films.

– Starch-Based Plastics: These plastics are derived from starch and are often used for disposable items like bags, utensils, and packaging.

– Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) Blends: Some companies are working on blending traditional plastics like PE and PP with biodegradable additives to enhance their biodegradability.

The PLA segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period, owing to increasing application in food packaging as a sustainable source. However, the starch blend segment dominated the global biodegradable plastic market in 2019, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the market. This is attributed to its demand in flexible packaging and agricultural sector. Also, the starch blends are widely used to decrease the carbon footprint of conventional resins, thus enhancing the segment growth.

They are often used in single-use items to reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste.

These regulations help consumers and businesses identify genuine biodegradable products.

๐‚๐ก๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ฌ: Despite their benefits, biodegradable plastics also face challenges. One major challenge is ensuring that they break down properly in various environmental conditions. Biodegradable plastics often require specific composting conditions to fully degrade, and if they end up in conventional landfills, they may not decompose as intended.

The packaging segment held the largest share in 2019, accounting for more than two-thirds of the global biodegradable plastic market. This is attributed to the shifting trend of consumers from synthetic to bio-based products in response to the growing environmental awareness. However, the agriculture segment is expected to manifest the highest CAGR of 14.1% during the study period, owing to growing application of biodegradable mulch films in agriculture.

๐Œ๐š๐ซ๐ค๐ž๐ญ ๐†๐ซ๐จ๐ฐ๐ญ๐ก: The demand for biodegradable plastics has been growing steadily, driven by increased awareness of plastic pollution and sustainability concerns. Companies in this industry continue to innovate and improve the performance of biodegradable materials.

Researchers are also exploring more sustainable feedstock options.

The market across Europe, followed by North America, held the largest share in 2019, contributing to more than half of the market. This is attributed to European legal framework and strategies that will foster the extensive use of bio-based plastic products. However, the global biodegradable plastic market across LAMEA is expected to portray the highest CAGR of 15.5% from 2020 to 2027, owing to the large presence of sugarcane feedstock, which can be utilized for production of bio-plastics.

However, their environmental benefits depend on proper disposal and management.

According to the report, the global biodegradable plastic industry was pegged at $1.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $4.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2020 to 2027.
