Bioplastics are derived from renewable feedstocks such as corn, sugarcane, and cellulose. The preference towards bio-based plastics has increased significantly, due to their eco-friendly nature, abundant availability of renewable feedstocks, and favorable government policies the aid the use of bioplastics in various industries. Moreover, bioplastics are widely applicable in rigid packaging, flexible packaging, textiles, consumer goods, agriculture, construction, electrical & electronics, and other industries. Furthermore, the fusion of bio-resources such as plant-derived natural fibers into bioplastic composite structures has gained traction in designing and engineering of bioplastic composites. The natural fibers used in the bioplastics help to enhance the specific properties such as stiffness & thermal behavior, reduce the price of bioplastics, improve the bio-based share of bioplastics, and refine their recyclability.

Environment-friendly properties of bioplastics and their high consumer acceptance significantly drive the growth of the global bioplastic market for injection molding. Furthermore, favorable government policy towards the use of bioplastics and adequate accessibility of renewable raw material sources fuel the market growth. However, high cost of bioplastics and their limited performance restrain the growth of the bioplastic composites market. On the contrary, decrease in dependency on petroleum resource and increase in R&D activities for bioplastic are expected to provide lucrative future opportunities for the market growth.

The report segments the global bioplastic composites market for injection molding on the basis of polymer, fiber type, end-user industry, and geography. Based on polymer, the market is bifurcated into natural polymer and synthetic polymer.

According to a new report titled, Global Bioplastic Composites Market for Injection Molding by Polymer, Fiber Type, and End-User Industrylobal Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023, the global bioplastic composites market for injection molding was valued at $18,562 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $39,722 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2017 to 2023. The wood fiber composites segment accounted for more than 91% share of the global bioplastic composites market for injection molding in 2016.

Bioplastics refer to materials that are either biodegradable or non-biodegradable, derived from both renewable and non-renewable resources. The fusion of bio-resources such as plant-derived natural fibers into bioplastic composite structures has gained importance in designing and engineering of bioplastic composites. The natural fibers used in the bioplastics help to enhance particular properties such as stiffness and thermal behavior. Furthermore, natural fibers reduce the price of the bioplastics, improve the bio-based share of the bioplastics, and refine the recyclability properties of the bioplastics composites.

Based on polymer, the market is segmented into natural polymer and synthetic polymer. The natural polymer segment is projected to be the most lucrative segment from 2017 to 2023, owing to its biodegradability and rise in price of substitutes that are made from petroleum products. Furthermore, government and environmental governing bodies across the world have imposed various policies that encourage the use of natural polymers, which fuel the market growth for natural polymers.

On the basis of fiber type, the market is divided into wood fiber composites and non-wood fiber composites. The wood fiber composites segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the high strength & stiffness of the wood fiber composites. Moreover, the cost of production of wood fiber composites is low as compared to non-wood fiber composites, thus lowering the price of the wood fiber composites, which fuels the growth of market.

Basis on end-user industry, the market is categorized into transportation, electrical & electronics, building & construction, aerospace & defense, consumer goods and others. The transportation segment is projected to be the most lucrative segment from 2017 to 2023, owing to extensive application of bioplastics composites in transportation segment.
