Starch blended biodegradable polymers are formed by combining starch and synthetic polymers. Currently, starch based polymers represent the second largest category of biodegradable polymers. These polymers are crystalline in nature, reasonably easy to process and may have starch content ranging from 10% to greater than 90%. In recent years, starch-based biodegradable polymers have gained prominence to a great extent. The lower price and greater availability of starch coupled with its environment-friendly profile has made it as a viable alternative to polymers based on petrochemicals.
According to IMARC Group’s recently published report titled “Starch Blended Biodegradable Polymer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global starch blended biodegradable polymer market is currently being driven by the expanding applications of these polymers in various industries such as food, packaging, agriculture, etc. Furthermore, the prices of these products have been declining continuously over the past several years making them competitive compared to synthetic polymers. According to the report, the starch based polymers market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. The report provides a comprehensive insight into the industry including its market break-up by region, market breakup by end-uses, value chain analysis, key players and market outlook.
