Publication Month: Oct 2019 | Report Code: TIPRE00006942 | No. of Pages: 150 | Category: Chemicals and Materials | Status: Published

The Asia Pacific biodegradable plastic market is accounted to US$ 731.0 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 2,916.1 Mn by 2027.

China is dominating the Asia Pacific biodegradable plastic market followed by Japan. The market for biodegradable plastic is growing in China due to rising concerns from consumers over the impact plastic products have on the environment. The rising concerns over plastic use may lead to regulators banning single-use, non-biodegradable plastics such as cutlery and packaging in the country. Chinese plastic manufacturers are responsible for the highest share of global plastic production are now looking to develop more biodegradable plastic products.

Market Insights

Growing awareness of the adverse effects attributed to conventional plastics

The customers in developed and developing countries have become more aware of the ill effects of conventional plastics on their lifestyle and the environment. Various organizations are working toward bringing transformation in the handling of plastics, through strategic planning, communication, consumer awareness campaigns, documentary films, education, cleanup campaigns, raising business awareness, scientific research, entrepreneurial innovation, legislation, and sustainability. The key aim is to increase the understanding of users regarding plastic pollution, thereby encouraging the invention of more sustainable solutions, and empowerment of more people and business organizations to take action to stop plastic pollution. Therefore, the revolution in consumer demand on the basis of environmental awareness, packaging convenience, and sustainable plastic production systems is boosting the global biodegradable plastic market growth.


Type Insights

Based on type, the Asia Pacific biodegradable plastic market is bifurcated as PHA, PLA, starch blends, biodegradable polyesters and others. The starch blend segment dominated the Asia Pacific biodegradable plastic market. The starch blend polymer bio-blends are biodegradable polymeric materials which are composed of cellulosic-based biomaterials that can be degraded by enzymes and microorganisms. The combination of starch and polyolefin produces a single material carrying the biodegradation properties of starch with the thermal, mechanical and barrier properties of polyolefin. Starch has been receiving increasing attention as raw material for the manufacturing of films due to the lack of the availability of the conventional film-forming resins. The low permeability of starch films has made it an element of choice for the food packaging application

                                                                       

End User Insights

The Asia Pacific Biodegradable plastic market is bifurcated based on end user into packaging and bags, agriculture and horticulture, consumer goods, textile and others. The packaging and bags segment accounted for the largest share in the Asia Pacific biodegradable plastic market. The biodegradable plastics have found a profound place in the packaging and bags sector considering the growing demand for biodegradable plastic from the packaging sector due to its properties like being stronger and convenient to use as compared to the traditional plastics. Rigid packaging is implemented by manufacturers of cosmetic goods, as well as beverage bottles, among others. Materials including bio-PE, PLA, or bio-PET, are commonly used in rigid biodegradable plastic packaging.
