A significant change is occurring in the global polymer industry. The demand for polymers derived from renewable resources and biodegradable polymers are growing. Moreover, due to rapid advances in the biotechnology, many bioplastics such as polylactides and polyhydroxyalkanoates have been developed.

As of 2018, about 8-10% of the total annual crude oil consumption in the U.S. was used to produce plastic. With the price volatility of crude, the supply and economic stability of plastic packaging remain to be uncertain. In addition, plastic packaging products are toxic to both the environment and human health, if they are not biodegradable. Non-biodegradable disposed of plastic packaging products results in land and water clogs, hence degrading the quality of the environment and health. Thus, the demand for bioplastics and biodegradable plastics are on the rise.

Bioplastic or green polymer packaging is material produced from biomass or is biodegradable or both. Unlike the common understanding, bioplastics are also produced from fossil-based raw materials provided by the end products are biodegradable. The market penetration of bioplastic materials has been substantially low in the last decade. With the growing availability of raw materials and diverging product portfolios of bioplastic and green polymer materials, the demand is projected to be on the rise during the forecast period. The major development of biopolymer and green plastic is primarily expected in Europe owing to the growing importance of bio economics in the European Union. Europe is a major hub for the entire bioplastics industry as it ranks highest in the field of research and development.
