The global bioplastics & biopolymers market is projected to witness a CAGR of 12.0% from 2016 to reach a market size of USD 5.08 Billion by 2021. The market is driven by stringent environment laws across the globe as bioplastics have less negative impact on environment compared to traditional plastics. Another major factor which is expected to bring momentum to this market is fluctuations in the prices of oil forcing companies to search for a stable source of raw material.

Bio-PET and PLA segments are expected to register high CAGRs between 2016 and 2021, in terms of volume. The bio-PET segment accounted for the highest market share as this bioplastics are widely used in packaging and bottling industries. Bio-PET possesses similar properties to conventional PET.

Europe accounted for the largest share of the global bioplastics & biopolymers market and is projected to continue dominating the market during the forecast period. The Central & South America market is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to availability of feedstock in the region. Europe accounted for the largest share due to focused interest on the issue of sustainable packaging and increased political awareness in the region about environmental issues. Increased awareness has resulted in the formulation of laws and regulations that have influenced all industries in Europe.

Packaging is projected to account for the highest market share during the forecast period. Bioplastics & biopolymers are widely used in the packaging sector for food packaging, cosmetics packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging, and goods packaging. Many countries are banning conventional plastics due to environmental pollution as these plastics ultimately end up in sea or in landfills. Governments are encouraging the use of bioplastics by providing subsidies and charging taxes on the use of conventional plastics.

Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market

The bioplastics market is still in its introductory phase and R&D expenses accounts for a major portion of the product cost. This high cost of bioplastics, when compared to the conventional plastics, acts as a major restraint in the bioplastics market. In order to develop new and innovative products, technologies, and manufacturing processes, the market players collaborate with each other. These collaborations are expected to overcome the restraints in the market during the forecast period.

The market players adopted both organic and inorganic growth strategies to strengthen their market position. New product launches, partnerships, and agreements & collaborations are the major organic growth strategies adopted by the market players to enhance their regional footprint and meet the growing demand of bioplastics & biopolymers in emerging economies. BASF SE (Germany), Bio-on S.p.A. (Italy), NatureWorks LLC (U.K.), Metabolix Inc. (U.S.), Meredian Holdings Group Inc. (Washington), and Plantic Technologies PLC (Australia) are some of the major players in the market.
