Biopolymers & Bioplastics Market Trends



  • The increasing popularity of eco-friendly packaging is driving the market growth


Consumers all across the globe are now aware of the side effects caused by plastics on the environment. Traditional plastics, which are mainly part of society, require a very long time to separate and degrade along with the time, and they lie in landfill for a significant time.Countering this problem, these biodegradable plastics and polymers are quickly separated, disposed of, and retained through recycling into the normal framework—moreover, the peace of the decay of biodegradable and biopolymer plastics.The exercise of microorganisms is far swifter than the traditional plastics.This factor drives the market CAGR in the forecast period.


Additionally, the market for bioplastics and biopolymers is primarily driven by rising demand for plastic convenience and quality food products, the rising urban population, which increases food adoption, rising consumption of processed or stored food and packaged food for consumers around the world, growing disposable income of eatable food, and multi-functionality of packaging. Packaging is one of the end-use industries that dominate the bioplastics and biopolymers market. Bioplastics, particularly biodegradable bioplastics, are becoming more popular as a replacement for conventional plastics due to environmental concerns. Bioplastics are increasingly used in bottles, films, clamshell cartons, waste collection bags, carrier bags, mulch films, and food service containers. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow due to rising demand for packaged foods, innovation and development in bio-plastic packaging, rising consumer concerns about their health, and rising packaging capacity of packaging food owners on durable food products. Changing consumer lifestyles in developed countries, growing pharmaceutical, food, and other industries, and new product development in bioplastics and biopolymers products are expected to drive the Biopolymers & Bioplastics market revenue during the forecast period.
