Market Insights

Growing awareness of the adverse effects attributed to conventional plastics to favor the biodegradable plastic market in Europe

The customers in countries of Europe have been educated 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 Europe biodegradable plastic market is bifurcated as PHA, PLA, starch blends, biodegradable polyesters and others. The starch blend segment dominated the Europe biodegradable plastic market. The starch blend polymer bio-blends are the biodegradable polymeric materials which are composed of cellulosic-based biomaterials which can be degraded by enzymes and microorganisms. The combination of polyolefin and starch gives a single material with the biodegradation properties of starch with the mechanical, thermal and barrier properties of polyolefin. Starch has been noticing 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 Europe 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 Europe 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.
