Publication Month: Mar 2022 | Report Code: TIPRE00003267 | No. of Pages: 146 | Category: Chemicals and Materials | Status: Published

The bioplastics market is expected to grow from US$ 5,799.8 million in 2021 to US$ 13,806.1 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2021 to 2028

Bioplastics is a substance made from organic biomass sources, unlike conventional plastics made from petroleum. Bioplastics are made through a number of different processes. Some processes include the use of a microorganism to process base materials, such as vegetable oils, cellulose, starches, acids, and alcohols.

In 2020, Asia Pacific dominated the global bioplastics market and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period. Consumers are increasingly shifting their preference toward bio-based plastics due to the growing environment-related regulations and rising government initiatives to encourage environmental awareness. The increased bans on traditional plastics are becoming a primary driver for the growth of the market in Asia Pacific. As countries such as India and China are environmentally concerned, companies are shifting to bioplastics, which helps them acquire a higher consumer market share. The demand for bioplastics is expected to surge in the packaging sector in the coming years due to the rising need for various healthcare products to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. The growing demand for flexible packaging from the consumer goods industry and the adoption of various technological innovations in packaging have led to the substantial growth of the packaging sector. Europe is the second-largest region in the global market and is also expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period. The growing automotive industry and the increasing demand from the packaging industry are bolstering the growth of the bioplastics market in Europe.

Market Insights

Wide Application Scope of Bioplastics

In recent years, there has been an increase in the application of bioplastic in various end-use industries across the world. In the agriculture industry, bioplastics are being used as an alternative that decreases resource use. Superabsorbent bioplastics can be utilized as a complementary water source since they can absorb and retain a large amount of water, providing it to crops in drought times. Bioplastics are also increasingly used in various consumer products, such as food containers, biodegradable utensils, and grocery bags. In the automotive industry, it helps in reducing fuel consumption and emissions by reducing vehicles’ weight. Thus, the wide application scope of bioplastics is driving the growth of the market.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into biodegradable and non-biodegradable. In 2020, the non-biodegradable segment dominated the market. Various non-biodegradable bioplastics, such as polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamides (PA), and polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), are available in the market. These plastics are used for carry bags, films, and bottles.

Frequently Asked Questions

The major players operating in the bioplastics market are Teijin Limited, Toray Industries, Inc., Sabic, BASF SE, Total Carbion PLA, Braskem S.A., Biome Bioplastics, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Novamont S.P.A., and Natureworks LLC.
In 2020, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global bioplastics market. Some of the primary market drivers for bioplastics include its environmentally favorable features, high consumer acceptance of bio-based goods, regulatory support for producing degradable packaging materials, and the availability of renewable raw material sources to manufacture bioplastics.
In 2020, the biodegradable segment held the largest market share. To reduce reliance on conventional plastics, the industry trends shifted toward adopting bio-based products. Furthermore, due to the government's strict rules, most manufacturers in industries such as packaging, textile, and agriculture are moving toward bio-based plastic. Such considerations have a significant influence on the growth of the biodegradable plastic industry.
Based on application, the packaging is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Bioplastic packaging is expected to increase market share because of its low environmental effect, increased emphasis on recyclability and sustainability, government attention on efficient package management, expanding consumer awareness, and increasing prohibitions on single-use plastic.
During the forecast period, the biodegradable segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment. Biodegradable plastic manufacturers have considerable prospects in new electronics, medical, and automotive industries due to an increased focus on sustainability and favorable government rules for green procurement strategies. Manufacturers are substantially investing in R&D operations to use biodegradable polymers in various medical applications, such as stitching materials, screws, and implants.
Consumer awareness of sustainable plastic alternatives and widespread initiatives to minimize the use of non-biodegradable conventional plastics are driving the growth of the bioplastics market. Traditional plastics, which are often petroleum-based, take decades to break down or degrade and can be found in landfills for an extended length of time. When biodegradable plastics are discarded, they degrade faster and are incorporated back into the natural system. Furthermore, the degradation rate of biodegradable plastics by microbial activity is substantially faster than that of regular plastics.
