Biodegradable Plastic Markets, 2020-2027: Types, End-uses, Regions, Companies - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Biodegradable Plastic Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (Starch-based, PLA, PHA, PBAT, PBS), by End Use (Packaging, Consumer Goods, Agriculture), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020-2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global biodegradable plastic market size is projected to reach USD 7.6 billion by 2027, rising at a revenue-based CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period.

Increasing use of biodegradable products, owing to strict governmental laws for prohibiting use of conventional plastics and growing awareness among public toward their ill-effects is boosting the market growth.

The starch-based segment led the global biodegradable plastic market, since they are used in various applications such as packaging, consumer electronics, agriculture, automotive, and textiles. Polylactic Acid (PLA) is also one of the most consumed products, which is used in 3D printing, mulch film, and packaging.

Ban on plastics by European Commission is anticipated to drive the packaging segment growth over the forecast period. Novel applications of biodegradable products in the medical sector for drug encapsulation and medical surgeries are also being increasingly practiced.

People across the globe, are facing grave issues of waste as conventional plastics take hundreds of years to decompose. To tackle this issue several countries have banned the use of single-use plastic products and are promoting eco-friendly biodegradable products. Ban of non-reusable conventional plastics in many regions, especially in Europe and North America, is estimated to propel the market demand. Additionally, improving standard of living and increasing disposable income in developing countries are likely to augur well for the market in Asia-Pacific and Central and South America.

Key players are investing in research and development activities in order to create improved products that are strong and can be easily decomposed in natural environment. Many companies have integrated value chain to serve customers better and improve company profits.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • The Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) segment is projected to expand at a significant CAGR of 10% in terms of revenue during the forecast period, owing to increasing use of PHA in medical and other applications
  • Packaging is the largest end-use segment, followed by the agriculture sector, owing to replacement of conventional plastics in food packaging such as boxes, wraps, cups, plates
  • Europe is the largest region in terms of revenue as well as volume. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region
  • Major players in the biodegradable plastic industry include BASF SE, NatureWorks LLC, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Carbion, and Biome Technologies plc.
