Europe Biodegradable Plastic Market Forecast 2018-2026

Europe Biodegradable Plastic Market Forecast 2018-2026

KEY FINDINGS

The European Parliament issued an order in April 2014, to reduce the use of oil-based plastic bags up to 50% by 2017. As a result, the Europe biodegradable plastics market accounted for the highest revenue share in 2017. If the trend continues, the market will continue to expand further at a CAGR of 11.31% over the forecast period of 2018-2026.

MARKET INSIGHTS

As per European commission, plastic waste disposable is a serious problem as plastics hardly decompose in the environment. However, the biodegradable nature of these polymers is promoting their adoption across the globe. The market is segmented according to the type of applications and by type. Packaging and agriculture are the most sought-after applications of this market. Also, the fact that automotive manufacturers are increasingly focusing on reducing their carbon footprint is presenting lucrative opportunities for the market to expand further.

COMPETITIVE INSIGHTS

Fkur Kunststoff Gmbh, Basf Se, Biome Bioplastics Limited, Futerro Sa, Sigma-Aldrich (Acquisition By Merck), Corbion N.V. (Purac), Bio-On S.P.A, Synbra Holding Bv, Natureworks Llc and Tianan Biologic Material Co. Ltd are some of the established market players in this region.
