Rising Adoption of Biodegradable Wipes

Rising demand for biodegradable wipes is mainly attributed to the shift in consumer preference toward eco-friendly products and growing focus of governments on green procurement policies. Wipes produced from biodegradable substances can be easily broken down anaerobically by bacteria or other living organisms over a period of time. This helps in reducing the accumulation of the waste in the environment. Therefore, biodegradable wipes are gaining high acceptance among the consumers in developed countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and the UK. Moreover, environmentally friendly personal products are becoming increasingly popular, further driving the demand for biodegradable wipes globally. Various R&D activities are undertaken by the key players to develop innovative products that have the least impact on the environment or are environment-friendly. For instance, eco-friendly nappy brand Naty produces compostable baby wipes. Likewise, Nivea offers biodegradable aloe cleansing wipes. These gentle wipes biodegrade in 28 days and are made of 100% renewable plant fibers to ensure that no waste is generated that might pollute the environment. Therefore, the development of new and innovative biodegradable wipes is projected to provide a huge growth opportunity for the key players operating in the wipes market during the forecast period.
