Biodegradable Plastic Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global biodegradable plastic market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Biodegradable plastics are made using petroleum-based sources and renewable raw materials, such as corn, wheat, bamboo, and sugarcane. They are degraded by microorganisms like fungi and bacteria into water, biomass, and carbon dioxide (CO2). As a result, they are utilized in different ways, from flexible packing materials for different food products to extruded, injection-molded in conventional machines. Presently, the excessive use of disposable single-use plastics and their negative impact on the environment and human health is catalyzing the demand for biodegradable plastics worldwide.

Biodegradable Plastic Market Trends:

Biodegradable plastics are used in the agriculture and horticulture sectors for manufacturing mulching films and plant pots. This, in confluence with the increasing utilization of agricultural products in the burgeoning food and beverage (F&B) sector, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, governing agencies of numerous countries are imposing bans on non-biodegradable plastics on account of rising environmental concerns. They are also implementing high standards and introducing certification systems to manage the quality of products. This, coupled with the growing awareness about the detrimental impact of plastics, is positively influencing the demand for eco-friendly alternatives like biodegradable plastics. Apart from this, the surging use of online food delivery applications and boosting sales of ready-to-eat (RTE) products is promoting the adoption of biodegradable plastics for food packaging and compostable bags. Furthermore, several leading companies are focusing on shifting their production facilities of biodegradable polymers to emerging countries due to affordable human resources and the convenience of feedstock acquisition. They are also improving manufacturing procedures and chemical additives. This is anticipated to increase the development and application of biodegradable plastics in various countries, thereby strengthening the market growth.
