New Report Released: - Global Biodegradable Polymers Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global biodegradable polymers market: BASF, NatureWorks, Arkema, Novamont, and Plantic

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Braskem, Cereplast, DSM, DuPont, Ecospan, Evonik Industries, FP International, Metabolix, Meredian Holdings Group, Toray and Industries

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Catering of food products is a large segment of the food and beverage industry and is another important application area for bioplastics. Bioplastics can be used to produce food catering equipment such as trays, cutlery, cups, and dishes. Other applications of bioplastics include the manufacture of tires with starch-based materials to reduce fuel consumption and the manufacture of stitching materials, screws, and implants in the medical sector.”

According to the report, the production of polymers and plastics has a negative impact on the environment. Waste polymer products also have negative effects on the environment. Plastic waste management is a top priority in most parts of the world currently as mass consumption of products with short lifespans is increasing, leading to an increase in the amount of waste generated. This waste often ends up in landfills or dumping grounds that have grave environmental impacts such as soil pollution, destruction of local flora and fauna, odor, leachate seepage into groundwater, and irreversible destruction of arable land.

Further, the report states that products made from biodegradable polymers must be placed in an end-of-life environment to ascertain their biodegradability. This puts additional pressure on material processing facilities and composters as sorting becomes a tedious task. Consumers demand easily recognizable and clear labels that facilitate end-of-life environment management of biodegradable polymers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
