Bioplastics includes both biodegradable and non-biodegradable polymers that are manufactured from natural sources. The use of bioplastics is being encouraged consistently, in obtaining natural polymers from agricultural, cellulose or potato and corn starch waste. The production and practice of bioplastics are considered as a sustainable solution due to low emission of greenhouse gases. Aspects such as eco-friendly properties, upsurge in consumer awareness, growth in environmental apprehensions, and favourable government guidelines drive the growth of the bioplastic market. However, high production cost and comparatively lower performance standards than synthetic plastics restrain the market growth to a certain extent.

The bioplastics market will witness a significant growth in the coming years owing to the growing consumer preference towards eco-friendly materials and growing innovative technologies to produce bio-plastics. Furthermore, the increased consumption and demand for packaged food and need for sophisticated packaging for the growing middle class are adding up to the growth of global bio-plastic market.
