The recent years have exploded environment friendly alternatives globally. Preferably, biodegradable plastics are one set of materials that have become a popular replacement for conventional plastics as consumers demand green options to align with the environment. Biodegradable plastic degrades under biological (mainly microbial) action with a bleak chance of hampering the natural environment. Moreover, the awareness of conventional plastic's harmful impact on the environment has also supported the global market for biodegradable plastics. According to the report, Global Biodegradable Plastics Market is expected to reach US$ 7.1 Billion by 2027.



COVID-19 Impact on Global Biodegradable Plastics Market:


Biodegradable plastics confirm to be an outstanding option to conventional plastics, which are in enhanced demand owing to the increase in food, pharma, and PPE packaging amidst the pandemic booming of the market strength globally. Remarkably, the need for food packaging and single-use plastic has increased in the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies have endeavoured biodegradable alternatives for food packaging and single-use cutlery, driving the market growth.

Worldwide Biodegradable Plastic Market Size was US$ 4.3 Billion in 2021


Numerous biodegradable and compostable plastics are bioplastics produced from plants rather than fossil fuels. There are many options, such as packaging, agriculture, and consumer goods depending on their application. Wherein biodegradable plastics can be split down by microbes, crushed up and converted into biomass, water and carbon dioxide (or in the nonexistence of oxygen, methane rather than CO2).

The positive impacts of biodegradable plastic are being regulated while society is transitioning towards a circular economy. Legislation is the most critical driver for biodegradable plastics globally. For example, bans or taxes on the use of non-biodegradable shopping bags in Italy, France, or coastal cities have led to a substantial surge in the consumption of biodegradable plastics.

By Application, Packaging is currently Gaining Traction in the Global Biodegradable Plastic Market:


By Applications, Packaging, Agriculture and Consumer Goods, Packaging is the chief use for biodegradable plastics. Wherein flexible packaging uses biodegradable plastics, large multinationals in the consumer-packaged goods, retailers, and foodservice sectors have also made progress or declared intentions to scale biodegradable plastic usage dramatically. Consequently, drive the demand for biodegradable packaging for fresh produce and food cutlery and compostable bags across the globe. In addition, several e-commerce giants have also prompted a switch to biodegradable packaging, encouraging the biodegradable demand in online goods and food delivery.

Similarly, agriculture also uses biodegradable plastics. The agricultural mulching film is used to improve crop yield in many countries. The traditional mulching film is difficult to collect from the field and can lead to severe plastic pollution in the soil. The biodegradable mulching film has, therefore, been tested and developed to be an alternative. Though its soil biodegradability and consequences are not fully understood, many countries have applied it to a larger scale.

Global Biodegradable Plastic Industry will grow with a CAGR of 8.72% during 2020-2027


Across the realms of the global biodegradable plastic market, by material type, Polybutylene adipate Terephthalate (PBAT), Polybutylene Succinate (PBS), Polylactic Acid (PLA), Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), and Starch Blends are most renowned. Amongst the variants, starch blends emerge as the global leader in market share in the worldwide market.

Moreover, the commercial development of starch blends has gone through several phases. Starch blend being inexpensive and readily available compared to other natural polymers with additional biodegradability makes it a popular material to expand biodegradable plastics. Exceptionally, starch-bends are used in end-use industries such as packaging, automobiles, and agriculture.

On the other hand, PHA is majorly employed in medical applications such as drug encapsulation and medical implants. Other medical uses comprise tissue engineering, bone marrow scaffolds, and bone plates. Additionally, PHA is also used to produce compost bags, agriculture foil and films, packaging for food and beverages, and consumer goods, thereby feeding the growth of PHA globally.

The Future for Biodegradable Plastics:


Demand for biodegradable plastic has been rising due to environmental concerns regarding the use of non-renewable materials. As per our analysis, global market predictions are more ambitious, with an estimation of global biodegradable plastics demand reaching 2,066.99 Thousand Tonnes by 2027. The prevailing instances, like in China legislation relating to single-use plastic, are driving the need for biodegradable plastics. Moreover, according to Greenpeace China, has planned or constructed new biodegradable plastic projects with 36 companies.

By Region, Global Biodegradable Plastic Market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, The Middle East and Africa and Latin America:


The North American market is a crucial hub as it is the leading region in the research & development and consumption of biodegradable plastic. Consumer goods are added vertical that shall fuel the market growth in North America owing to the raised living standards of the people, which prefer quality products instead of cheaper products.

Currently, Europe has the most extensive production capabilities and regional development. The robust automotive industry and the increasing demand for bio-plastic-based packaging products by various manufacturers in Europe expect to favour the market's demand. The expanding packaging industry in the region shall further bolster regional growth due to the expanding market for lightweight automobile parts and electronic goods.

In addition, the growth of the biodegradable plastics market in Asia-Pacific is attributed to the apparent availability of raw materials utilised to produce biodegradable plastics. However, the future development of biodegradable plastics in Asia-Pacific is highly attributable to the awareness about biodegradable plastics as a viable option to conventional plastics and price reduction.
