The GCC biodegradable food service disposables market is currently witnessing moderate growth. Biodegradable food service disposables are produced from various raw materials like sugarcane fiber or bagasse, corn starch, wheat bran, areca nut sheaths, coconut coir and dried leaves of the palm and bamboo trees. They are compostable and degradable in nature and provide valuable nutrients to the soil to make it fertile. They include numerous tableware such as cups, bowls, trays, bottles, clamshells and straws. In the GCC countries, biodegradable food service disposables have gained popularity as these materials can be easily disposed into the landfill to avoid the cost related to solid waste disposal and produce fewer greenhouse gases in the environment as compared to plastic-based products.
The GCC biodegradable food service disposables market is primarily driven by the thriving food and beverage sector, development of retail infrastructure, and the growing penetration of pre-packed foods. Besides this, modern retail stores are expanding their presence in tier 1 and 2 cities, exposing consumers to a range of packaged food options. In addition to this, the growing number of food service joints has also increased the demand for sustainable packaging solutions in the food service sector. Moreover, the governments of countries like Oman, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia have banned plastic-based packaging materials from supermarkets. Such initiatives are likely to drive the sales of biodegradable alternatives across the region. On account of these factors, the market is expected to continue its moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
