Bioplastic Packaging Market Overview:

Bioplastic Packaging Market size is expected to reach USD 40 billion by 2025, increasing from USD 15 billion in 2019, with a CAGR of around 14.9% throughout the forecast period.

Bioplastic packaging is considered as an answer to the long-time non-degradability issue related to regular plastic products. These bioplastics are made from agriculture by-products, vegetable fats, oils, sugarcane, and others, which can be easily decomposed in a short time. The increasing awareness across the world about the hazardous effects of petroleum and natural gas-derived plastic products to both humans and the environment has accelerated the need for bioplastics.

Bioplastic Packaging Market Drivers and Restraints:

The global bioplastic packaging market is majorly driven by the concerns related to the regular plastic that takes several years to decompose. The dumping of plastic products in water and land has affected the ecosystem and also the terrestrial and aquatic creatures. This condition has resulted in the development of alternative solutions to plastic, such as bioplastics. The increasing demand from the food and beverages segment for an affordable and efficient packaging system propels the global bioplastic packaging industry. The rising consumer preference for organic and eco-friendly packaging solutions for food products, along with stringent government regulations like the ban of traditional plastic products has acted as a catalyst for the rapid development of the bioplastic packaging business.

Market Challenges:

On the other hand, there are also a few challenges associated with this industry, such as the use of chemicals in the manufacturing of bioplastics that can be harmful in nature. In addition, the increased complexities in the separation of these materials from disposal sites are also acting as a significant deterrent to business expansion.

Recent developments in the market:

  1. The Malaysian government has issued 432 warning notices, and 1,156 compound notices to business in 2019 that do not comply with the usage of biodegradable products. Around 2,700 firms witnessed strict actions for not using bioplastic packaging.
  2. The renowned packaging company Tetra Pak is ready to introduce its plant-based packages in the market after its recent achievement of certification for all its bioethanol derived entirely from sugarcane.
  3. In 2018, Just Eat collaborated with Skipping Rocks Lab, an edible-packaging start-up company to test the usage of ketchup packets that are made from seaweed extracts. 
  4. Thailand is projected to become a production hub for bioplastics in the coming years, attributing to favorable government regulation, available resources and huge investments from the domestic and foreign brands in the nation. 

Market segmentation:

The bioplastic packaging market is segmented on the basis of product type, packaging type, and end-user.

Segmentation Growth Insights:

Product Analysis:

Based on product type, the biodegradable polymers segment is predicted to garner the highest growth rate in the coming years, owing to the increasing consumer preference for eco-friendly and edible packaging options. The growing advances in technology have supported the manufacturing of plastic products from biodegradable polymers, which will revolutionize the existing scenario in the food and beverage industry.

Application Analysis:

On the basis of application, the food & beverages segment accounted for the dominant share in the global bioplastic packaging market in the review period and the same is expected to continue in the foreseen years. The rise in investments by leading giants in the F&B sector has resulted in the increased demand for biodegradable packaging solutions like bioplastics. With more consumer approval, the bioplastics market will witness tremendous need even in other industries like consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, catering, and so on.

Packaging Type Analysis:

Based on the packaging type, the rigid bioplastic packaging segment will register a noteworthy growth rate in the estimated period, attributing to the augmenting demand for such packaging in foodservice and fast-food joints around the world. The increasing culture of food takeaways has fuelled the demand for rigid packaging, which can prevent food from any external damage.

Geographical Insights:

Geographically, the global bioplastic packaging market is segregated in the regions of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and Latin America.

Europe's bioplastic packaging market is predicted to rule the global business in the forecast period due to the favorable government policies on the usage of biodegradable products and growing consumer awareness. The Asia Pacific bioplastic packaging market is likely to witness the highest growth rate in the same period. The growing packaging industry, supported by the growth in the food and beverages and pharmaceutical sectors in the nations like India, China, Japan, etc., has created an immense growth potential for the bioplastic packaging manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region. The availability of raw materials, cheap labor, and stringent government regulations will fuel the bioplastic packaging business in the APAC area.

Moreover, the abundant supply of sugarcane and oilseeds in countries like Brazil will act as a prominent factor for the business expansion in the Latin American bioplastic packaging market.
