Global Biodegradable Plastic Market to Grow at 9.43% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Rising Environmental Concerns Among the Masses

Published on Nov 24, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Biodegradable Plastic Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global biodegradable plastic market reached a value of US$ 4.4 Billion in 2021. Biodegradable plastic refers to an eco-friendly product variant that is generally manufactured using plants or biological materials. It includes renewable raw materials and petroleum-based sources, including bamboo, wheat, sugarcane, and corn. These products are usually degraded naturally in base compounds, such as water, carbon dioxide (CO2), and biomass, by the action of various micro-organisms. It consumes less energy during the manufacturing process, which results in the reduction of emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs), carbon footprint and waste production. As a result, it is widely utilized in the manufacturing of cutlery, crockery, food containers and packaging materials.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
