The need for bio-degradable plastics and resins has been on the rise since the mid 1970s. The high cost of petroleum was the deciding factor to find an alternative material. Recently with growing emissions and emphasis on carbon credits the shift to bio- based resins is gaining all the more precedence.

The bio-based resins have wide applications in building materials, bio-degradable plastics industry, packaging, automotive, household and consumer-able goods, food services, pharmaceutical/medical, agriculture etc. and are also used in making progressive inroads in the leisure or fiber industry, marine, and transportation industry. The largest consumable industry of bio-based resins so far has been the packaging industry. In Europe, the packaging industry is slated to grow from 14% in 2013 to nearly 40% by the year 2020. The automotive and transportation company is expected to grow.

Although manufacturers are more hesitant due to high costs soy- based resins, other bio-based resins, processing costs, etc. the market for bio-based resins is slowing but steadily gaining recognition and growth. The success of this industry mainly depends on industrial performance and pricing. Due to the non-toxicity of bio-based products, consumer industries catering to baby care & play toys, furniture, stationary, sports and goods, paintings, adhesives, coatings have a wide scope. The United States of America has been the leading producers of bio-based resins for the longest time due to the production of soy and corn crops. Other resin based raw components are made from flax, hemp, wood, coconut fiber, jute etc.
