Biodegradable packaging refers to the use of eco-friendly and recyclable materials for the packaging of goods. It is made from materials that are easily disintegrated and decomposed by microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, and algae. It includes packing corrugated bubble wrap, recycled cardboard, bioplastics, organic fabrics, cornstarch, seaweed, and mushroom packaging, and other plant-based materials. It helps support human and ecological health by generating less carbon footprint as compared to conventionally used synthetic packaging products. It also aids in minimizing plastic usage, which can help reduce littering issues and support environmental health.
Biodegradable Packaging Market Trends:
The increasing working population and busy schedules of individuals are catalyzing the demand for processed and ready-to-eat (RTE) food items, which is driving the need for effective packaging across the globe. In addition, the increasing use of biodegradable packaging in the food and beverage (F&B) industry due to its faster decomposition and recyclable properties is creating a positive market outlook. Apart from this, the rising awareness among individuals about the harmful impacts of non-biodegradable packaging on the health and the environment is positively influencing the market. In line with this, governments of various countries are imposing stringent regulations to put a ban on plastic products and minimize carbon emissions, which is encouraging the adoption of biodegradable packaging. Furthermore, the emerging trend of online shopping, along with the thriving e-commerce industry, is catalyzing the demand for biodegradable packaging to provide doorstep delivery of products. Additionally, various technological advancements in the packaging industry and increasing investments by leading market players in research and development (R&D) activities are expected to propel market growth in the coming years.
