Biodegradable Plastics - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)

Biodegradable Plastics - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Biodegradable Plastics Market is accounted for $2.25 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $6.98 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2017 to 2026. The growing demand for biodegradable plastics is mainly attributed to increased environmental awareness. Biodegradable plastics are increasingly being used to manufacture packaging materials as consumers are showing preferences towards ecofriendly packaging are some of the factors fueling the market growth. However, factors such as high cost in process are restricting the market growth.

Biodegradable plastics are plastics that are can be decomposed by the action of living organisms, usually bacteria. Two basic classes of biodegradable plastics exist: Bioplastics, whose components are derived from renewable raw materials, and plastics made from petrochemicals containing biodegradable additives which enhance biodegradation. Biodegradable broadly means that an object can be biologically broken down, while compostable typically specifies that such a process will result in compost, or humus. The waste management infrastructure currently recycles regular plastic waste, incinerates it, or places it in a landfill. Mixing biodegradable plastics into the regular waste infrastructure poses some dangers to the environment.

Amongst Type, Polylactic acid (PLA) segment accounted for significant market share during the forecast period due to demand from major packaging materials in industries such as food & beverages, textiles and tissue engineering. While, the starch-blend segment of type dominates the market during the forecast period. Europe is anticipated to be the largest market for biodegradable plastics due to rising packed food products along with increasing electronic and pharmaceutical industry and strict implementation of environmental regulations.

Some of the key players in Biodegradable Plastics Market include Amcor, BASF SE, Biome Technologies PLC, Bio-On SRL., Biopac, Corbion N.V., Meredian Inc., Metabolix Inc., Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, NatureWorks LLC, Plantic Technologies Ltd. and Tianan Biologic Materials Co. Ltd.
