Global Biodegradable Food Service Disposables Market to Reach US$ 12.3 Billion by 2032, Environmental Concerns Stimulating Growth

December 29, 2021 | Packaging

IMARC Group's latest report, titled “Biodegradable Food Service Disposables Market Report by Raw Material Type (Pulp and Paper, Biopolymers, Leaves, Wood), Product Type (Cups, Clamshells and Containers, Plates, Cutleries, and Others), Distribution Channel (Business to Business (B2B), Business to Customer (B2C)), and Region 2024-2032, the global biodegradable food service disposables market reached a value of US$ 7.7 Billion in 2023. Biodegradable disposables are environment-friendly alternatives of plastic and paper disposables. They are primarily manufactured using naturally derived substances such as corn starch, wheat bran, bamboo, sugarcane fiber (Bagasse), areca nut sheaths, and dried leaves including palm leaves and coconut coir. In comparison with non-biodegradable disposables, biodegradable disposables can break down completely over time by the action of biological organisms and processes. They also minimize the buildup of waste and contribute to a safer, cleaner and healthier environment. As a result, the demand for biodegradable food service disposables is increasing across the globe.

Global Biodegradable Food Service Disposables Market Trends:

The market is experiencing moderate growth owing to the growing environmental concerns and shifting consumer preferences toward eco-friendly products. Moreover, governments in several countries are implementing bans on plastic products and stringent regulations to control landfills. Apart from this, food service providers and non-governmental organizations are undertaking initiatives for reducing plastic and paper waste by introducing various awareness campaigns. This, in turn, is boosting the overall usage of eco-friendly products like biodegradable food service disposables. Additionally, the easy availability of raw materials for the production of these disposables acts as another growth-inducing factor. Further, rapid urbanization, sedentary lifestyles and on-the-go food culture are anticipated to fuel the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Looking forward, the global biodegradable food service disposables market size is projected to reach a value of US$ 12.3 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% during 2024-2032.
