Universally, the conventional plastic is getting banned because of the ill-effects it has on the environment. This plastic leaves behind a significant amount of carbon footprints, which is affecting the earth adversely. To reduce this, governments have imposed many regulations to stop environmental degradation. Especially Europe and North America have completely banned the use of plastic, which is reflecting as an influencer to the growth of the biodegradable plastic market in that demography.

The biodegradable plastic is replacing the conventional plastic in the 3D printing industry as well. The 3D printing industry is gaining traction from its numerous applications in the end-user industry such as automotive, electronics, packaging and textiles. The automotive industry is using biodegradable plastic to manufacture essential automotive parts of a vehicle. With biodegradable plastics’ promise to preserve the nature, the uptake is expected to flourish in the near future.
