Global Bioplastic Packaging Material Market 2015-2019

About Bioplastic Packaging Materials

Bioplastics are plastics made from renewable biomass sources or food crops such as vegetable fat, corn starch, vegetable oil, pea starch, and microbiota. The different types of bioplastics available include polymers that are directly extracted from biomass and processed, polymers that are made from bio-based precursors such as PLA, and polymers that are made by bacteria such as PHA and PHB. Bioplastics are different from conventional plastics, and they can be used to produce various products such as utensils, bags, furniture, carpets, films, bottles, cups, and packaging materials.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Bioplastic Packaging Materials market to grow at a CAGR of 23.75 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Bioplastic Packaging Material Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Bioplastic Packaging Material Market: Arkema Inc., BASF SE, Braskem SA, NatureWorks LLC and Novamont SpA

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Acetati, Albis Plastics, Bayer MaterialScience, Biome Bioplastics, Biopearls, BIOTEC, Cardia Bioplastics (Biograde), Corbion, DaniMer Scientific, Dow Chemical, Eastman Chemical, FKuR Kunststoff, Grace Biotech, IFS Chemicals, Innovia Films, IRE Chemicals and Meredian

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A major trend being observed in the market is increased demand for bioplastic packaging from developing countries, especially those in the APAC region and Latin America.”

According to the report, the demand for bioplastics is expected to surge during the forecast period because of an increased need for eco-friendly packaging. Increased awareness of the benefits of bioplastic packaging among end-users is propelling the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that high cost of production to produce bioplastic materials is a major restraint for the market vendors. Widening of the demand-supply gap in the last few years has led to a substantial increase in the cost of raw materials.
