Bioplastics are plastic materials produced from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, straw, woodchips, sawdust. Bioplastics are biodegradable materials that come from renewable sources and can be used to reduce the problem of plastic waste that is suffocating the planet and contaminating the environment.
Increasing adoption of it, owing to its numerous benefits such as environment friendliness and biodegradable nature is a key factor expected to drive growth. The increasing consumer preference towards eco-friendly products instead of synthetic derived chemicals products is another factor expected to fuel growth of the target market. Furthermore, increasing research and development activities and investment by beverage manufacturers such as The Coca Cola Company and PepsiCo, which is another factor expected to boost growth.
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Bio-Plastic Packaging Market is accounted for $16.80 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $57.28 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period. Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR, due to the high adoption of eco-friendly packaging solutions, along with the strict governance framework for synthetic polymers, is predicted to drive market expansion. In Europe, supportive government policies include helping consumers give preference to buying bio-based products. Also in the EU, member states are reducing taxes on bio-based products, owing to stringent government regulations against the consumption of non-recyclable plastics and increasing awareness about sustainable packaging in manufacturing industry in various countries in this province.
With rapid urbanization and industrialization, demand for packaging is growing exponentially in emerging economies. The growing demand for eco-friendly, advanced, and effective packaging in countries is boosting the growth of the market. In the coming years, emerging countries are expected to undertake environment-friendly approach for packaging solutions due to strict regulations and supports by the governments. This will create opportunity for the advanced bioplastic packaging solutions in the emerging economies.
