Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market Size and Growth (2021 - 2026)

The Global Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market is anticipated to grow in a significant way during the forecast period. It is expected that the target market is growing from USD 12.5 billion in 2021 to USD 27.9 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of around 23.7% over the forecast period. 

Bioplastics or biopolymers are plastic or polymer materials that are produced from renewable biomass sources like vegetable fats and oils, straw, corn starch, woodchips, recycled food waste, sawdust, etc. These materials are can also be made from by-products of agriculture, from used plastic bottles and other containers using microorganisms.In this market, around 80% of polymeric materials are produced from the petroleum industry, while fossil fuels are processed. The growing usage of plastics is burdening the environment with their increasing carbon footprint owing to the greenhouse gas emissions, coupled with other factors like pollution in soil and groundwater. The growing focus on sustainable developments is expected to create opportunities for bio-based plastics and polymers in the coming years. These Biopolymers are the polymers that are degradable while subjected to moisture & heat, under the action of microorganisms. They are majorly made from biomass, waste starch, and other renewable feedstock. 

Polylactic acid, bio-nano composites, and polyhydroxyalkanoate, etc. are some commercially available polymers, which are used in the electronics and automotive industries. For reducing carbon footprint, governments are encouraging the usage of these biodegradable polymers over conventional polymers. Also, some of the major automotive companies are now opting for biopolymers in their vehicles; like the usage of biopolymers for interior applications by Ford Motor Company.

Recent Developments

  • Novamont, a firm that develops and produces bioplastics and biochemicals through the integration of chemistry, has announced a new compostable MATER-BI grade for extrusion coating and extrusion lamination on paper, board, and other substrates.
  • Total Corbion PLA, a renowned technology leader in the world in Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) and lactide monomers, has inaugurated its 75-kilotonne-per-annum polylactic acid production plant in Thailand.

Biopolymer & Bioplastics Market Drivers and Restraints:

Factors such as limited availability of petroleum resources, fluctuation in crude oil prices, and awareness regarding ecological problems are the key factors that are driving the growth of the Global Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market during the forecast period. Instead of being a niche market, the target market is supposed to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Changing environmental regulations on carbon emissions & plastic usage and political conditions are also forecasted to create opportunities for the expansion of The Global Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market over the forecast period.

However, costing is a significant issue for biopolymers, which is still pretty steep owing to the manufacturing cost, which is according to the European Bioplastics Association. This steep in the prices of these polymers could be manifested as a major restraint that is hindering the global market over the outlook period.
