This report introduces a kind of biomaterial, starch-based plastics. CCM mainly focuses on the China’s starch-based plastic industry from several aspects including global development, development in China, classification, comparison of different degradable plastics, supply and development suggestions, etc.
Starch-based plastic was firstly developed in western countries in the 1970s. However, it grows more rapidly in China nowadays. As of 2015, the total capacity of starch-based plastic in China is more than 350,000 t/a. As a degradable plastic, starch-based plastic has a great advantage in market price when compared with other degradable plastics such as PLA, PBS, and PHA. However, it’s still higher than general-purpose plastics such as PP and PE. Nowadays, the market price of starch-based plastic is about USD1,805/t.
In 2015, Jilin Province prohibited the production, sale and use of non-degradable plastics. It seems that there is a great development opportunity for degradable plastics and it has made lots of degradable plastic companies expand their capacity. Wuhan Huali Environmental Technology Co., Ltd. has become the largest starch-based plastic manufacturer in China.
In this report, You can also know more about the influencing factors of starch-based plastics in China. You are able to learn about the major applications of starch-based plastics. You can learn more about the company profiles of major manufacturers.
