Bioplastic are plastic materials made from bio-based source such as sugar, starch straw, etc. And biopolymers are natural polymers produced by the cells of living organisms. Biopolymers are a broad category of materials that includes bioplastics and natural polymers such as silk, chitosan, and wool. Biopolymers and bioplastics are used in industries, such as textiles, building & construction, packaging, and automotive. Increasing use of several plastic compounds worldwide caused a rise in emissions and environmental degradation. This fueled demand for bio-based compounds, which can be environmental-friendly as well as reflect functionality at various end-user markets. The end use industries are toning up to the adoption of bio-based polymers and plastics. The automotive industry, for instance, has proven to be one of the significant consumers of bio-based plastics and polymers due to the high demand for lightweight materials in manufacturing vehicle components. These factors are cumulatively driving the growth of the global bioplastic & biopolymers market.

The bioplastics and biopolymers market is anticipated to reach USD 69,090 million by 2030 from USD 10,810 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 22.8% during the forecast period. The growing demand for environmental-friendly bio-based plastics and polymers is sustaining the market by aligning to government regulations is driving the market growth.

Growth Drivers:

Increasing awareness in regards to stainable plastic solutions and unavoidable endeavors to eliminate the use of non-biodegradable conventional plastics are driving the growth of bioplastics and biopolymers market. Biodegradable plastics separate 60% and more in the span of 180 days or less as contrasted and conventional plastics, which require about 1,000 years to separate. Expanding landfills and waste heaps have arisen as serious ecological risks and brought about various unfavorable consequences for the biological system.

The governments across the world are introducing initiatives and programs to manage the use of plastics. Regions such as Europe and North America have introduced regulations and targets to use bio-based and biodegradable plastic to reduce packaging waste and achieve circular economies. Manufacturers position their businesses to verbalize government regulations to find significant businesses across the regions and gain more market share.

The scope of applications of bio-plastics and bio-polymers is increasingly high. The applications of bioplastics & biopolymers in healthcare, packaging, consumer goods, and automotive industries is expected to accelerate the demand for bioplastics & biopolymers throughout the forecast period. Additionally, major market players are launching advanced bioplastics & biopolymer-based products, which is anticipated to boost the bioplastics & biopolymers market size over the forecast period.

There is a high demand for bioplastics & biopolymers from the packaging industry. The global production and consumption of bioplastics & biopolymers is growing, mainly in food packaging applications. Increasing purchasing power of consumers, a growing population, and a surge in e-commerce are the factors positively influencing the growth of bioplastic & biopolymers market.
