Major drivers, restraints, and opportunities have been mentioned to provide an exhaustive picture of the market. Furthermore, the current market trends related to the demand, supply, and sales, in addition to the recent developments, have been provided in this report. The report also analyzes key players in the Global bioplastics market. The report provides comprehensive forecast up to the period 2022 for various key segments, with 2016 as base year.
Plastics which are manufactured from biomass sources such as corn starch, vegetable fats and oils are called bioplastics. They are extensively utilised in various disposable items like crockery, pots, and straws and in various non disposable items like carpet fibres, plastic piping, and insulation car interiors among others. The overall impact on environment due to the use of bioplastics is significantly lower than that of conventional plastics, so these are considered to be eco friendly. Moreover, various factors such as favourable government policy supports for their use and their wide utilisation by the customers across many industry verticals such as construction, textile and automotive among others. Though, some factors like high cost as compared to its alternative, poor waste processing infrastructure may impede the market growth.
Geographically, Europe will drive the global market of bioplastics due to their increased adoption in Italy, United Kingdom, and Germany. Asia Pacific region will also drive the market of bioplastics because of increasing number of huge investments being made by the global major players in the region owing to presence of huge renewable feedstock.
The analysis presents in-depth information regarding the development, trends, and industry policies and regulations implemented in each of the geographical segments. Moreover, the research study analyzes the overall regulatory framework of Global bioplastics market, offering stakeholders a better understanding of the key factors affecting the overall market environment.
