COVID 19 Analysis


COVID 19 did bring up a mixed performance for the biodegradable tableware market. The online food deliveries were up during the lockdown months, which used the biodegradable tableware on priority. But the manufacturing pace was low, and the supply was minimal. As a result, the consumers returned to the use of plastic.

Chief variables existing in the market


Market Drivers


There is a very rapid rise in environmental consciousness amongst the people. Air and soil pollution is increasing at a very high rate across the world. As per the statistics are concerned, around 4.2 million deaths are caused every year through air pollution. And around 19% of China's agricultural soil is polluted!


Hence, it becomes important for people to adopt biodegradable remedies to avoid such critical environmental hazards in such scenarios. The biodegradable tableware market forecast states that environmental concerns will aggregate the demand rate of eco-friendly tableware products.


Market Challenges


The market challenge for the biodegradable tableware industry is that plastic options are available at cheaper rates for beating the competition. Most countries have not imposed any ban upon non-biodegradable tableware, restricting the demand for bio-degradable products. In 2019, the demand for plastic only across India was around 16 million metric tons, a market challenge for the biodegradable tableware industry.


Therefore, the key players are trying to advertise the environmental benefits of biodegradable tableware products to divert customers' attention from cheap plastic products. The cheaper products might be handy but are harmful to the environment and air that people breathe in. Therefore, this spread of awareness will help the industry get rid of this challenge.
