[Research Report] The biocomposites market is expected to grow from US$ 19,268.62 million in 2022 to US$ 46,851.39 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16% from 2022 to 2028.


Biocomposites are materials formed by reinforcement of natural fibers and matrix (resin). The interest in biocomposites is rapidly growing among end use industries as applications in fundamental research, packaging, construction, military applications, aerospace, railway coaches, and automobiles due to many potential benefits such as ease in availability, high specific strength, light weight, biodegradability, recyclability, cheaper in cost, and renewability. The biocomposites are being highly used in the automotive industry for the manufacturing of interior panels. As biocomposites are eco-friendly, they are replacing polymer composites in various applications at a high price.


The increasing use of sustainable building materials has aided the biocomposites market growth. The construction industry is one of the firmest emergent sectors in rapid urbanization owing to the growing population in urban areas. This urbanization makes the industry the most astonishing consumer of materials, most of them from non-renewable resources. According to the report from the Global Alliance for Building and Construction, the construction sector is one of the most harmful to the environment. According to the study, the construction sector is responsible for 39% of the carbon dioxide emissions dispersed in the environment, for 36% of consumption global energy and for 50% of the extraction of raw materials. Emissions are mainly responsible for climate change and increases the earth’s temperature. Conventional construction materials are highly resource and energy-intensive. Hence, there is a rising concern and awareness about hazards from conventional building materials that have both social and environmental impact. In order to address these issues, new materials and technologies are being developed in the construction industry. Biocomposites are sustainable building materials help eliminate non-renewable waste, reduce raw material usage, and cut fossil-fuel consumption. Interest in using biocomposites in the construction industry is increasing globally, as these materials are made from renewable, recyclable, biodegradable sources and have a wide range of uses as structural and non-structural building elements. However, there are few disadvantages of natural fiber composites such as poor fiber-matrix interfacial bonding, poor wettability, and water absorption. These challenges affect the strength and performance of end products. The hydrophilic nature of biocomposites tend to absorb water from the immediate environment which causes the composite to swell. All these factors are expected to hinder the biocomposites market growth during the forecast period.

The global biocomposites market is segmented based on fiber, product, end use. Based on fiber, the biocomposites market is bifurcated as wood fiber composite and non-wood fiber composite. Based on product, the market is classified as hybrid biocomposite and green biocomposite. On the basis of end use the market is segregated as building and construction, automotive, consumer goods, and others.

Based on fiber, the wood fiber composite segment accounted for a significant biocomposites market share. The main disadvantage of wood fiber composites is their moisture sensitivity however, with increasing research and development manufacturers are producing wood fiber components with higher moisture resistance, greater rigidity and a lower coefficient of thermal expansion. On the basis of product hybrid composite led the biocomposites market with a largest market share. Based on end use building and construction segment is dominating the biocomposite market. Biocomposites in the building are used for framing, walls and wallboard, window frames, doors, flooring, decorative paneling, cubicle walls, and ceiling panels. The use of biocomposites for temporary and adjustable building components reduces landfill waste when interior designs within the structure are modified.

The report provides a detailed overview of the global biocomposites market with respect to five major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA) and South & Central America. Asia Pacific accounted for a significant share of the market and is valued at more than US$ 9,300 million in 2022. Asia Pacific comprises several developing and developed economies such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Australia. The critical factor contributing to its growth is the increasing demand from building & construction and transportation for end-use industries. The high demand for biocomposites is primarily observed in China, Japan, India, and South Korea. Also, the increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) in transportation and infrastructure sectors is expected to drive the demand for biocomposites during the next few years. Europe is also expected to witness considerable growth valued at approximately US$ 11,000 million in 2028, owing to the increasing government spending on infrastructure building. Furthermore, in North America, there has been a widespread usage of biocomposites in residential & commercial construction, consumer products and the automotive sector. This has created lucrative opportunities in biocomposites market. The biocomposites market in North America is augmented to grow at CAGR of 15.0% during the forecast period.


Partnership, acquisitions, and new product launches were found to be the major strategies adopted by the players operating in the global biocomposites market.

  • In May 2022, Arkema planned to launch its new solution for recyclable and ever more efficient composites.
  • In Mar 2021, Fiberon announced the launch of wildwood composite cladding, providing the unrivaled beauty and warmth of wood combined with the durability of high-performance, low-maintenance materials.


Lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected economies and industries in various countries in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), South & Central America, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). The crisis disturbed global supply chains, manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and essential and nonessential product sales. Various companies announced possible delays in product deliveries and a slump in future sales of their products in 2020. Further, the international travel bans imposed by various governments in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America forced several companies to discontinue their collaboration and partnership plans. All these factors hampered the chemicals & materials industry in 2020 and early 2021, thereby restraining the growth of various markets related to this industry, including the biocomposites market.

Before the COVID-19 outbreak, the biocomposites market was mainly driven by the rising demand from automotive and building & construction industries. However, in 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in value chains caused by the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the supply chain of key raw materials and disturbed manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities in various countries. However, the economies revived their operations. The previously postponed construction projects were resumed, further providing an opportunity for the biocomposite market players to regain normalcy.


Some of the key players operating in the biocomposites market include TTS; Lingrove; Bcomp Ltd; UPM; Flexform Technologies; Tecnaro GmbH; Fiberon; Arkema; Trex Company, Inc.; and HempFlax Group B.V. among others.
