The increasing use of bio-based plastics and concerns regarding sustainable development is expected to create opportunities for the vendors in the biopolymers market. Additionally, the need to reduce the carbon content and effect of it on the human health is promoting the usage of biopolymers, and the future prospects are bright, according to a newly published intelligence report from IndustryARC. The has evaluated the global biopolymers market size to be $12 billion as of 2018 and projected the demand to increase at a superlative compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.

The IndustryARC’s latest research report is titled “Biopolymers Market: By Type (PLA, Biodegradable Polyester, Biodegradable Starch Blends and others) By Application & Geographic Analysis - Forecast (2019-2025)”. The report also documents that the government has taken an initiative to encourage the use of biodegradable polymers in order to reduce the carbon footprint.

Global Biopolymers Market: Demand Analysis and Growth Forecast

Biopolymers are polymeric biomolecules with monomeric units which are bonded together to form larger structures. Biopolymers are of different types such as sugar-based polymers, cellulose-based polymers, synthetic-based polymers, polylactic acid (PLA), Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), Polybutylene succinate (PBS), and Polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT). These are used in different applications such as 3D printing, film and sheet casting, injection molding, medical applications, apparel, upholstery, and specialty resins.

Global Biopolymers Market: Leading Segments

Europe accumulated the largest demand share at 55% of the global biopolymers market in 2018 owing to the increasing investments by the companies and the demand for biodegradable polymers across diverse sectors. Moreover, according to the European Bioplastics[Pk1], the bio-plastics production in Europe amounted to 16 million tonnes in 2018. It is approximately one-fifth of the global biopolymers production capacity that is located in Europe.

On the other hand, rigid packaging continues to be the key application segment of the biopolymers market, growing at an impressive CAGR of 21% during the aforementioned forecast period. The biopolymers industry is a young and innovative sector with tremendous economic and ecological potential, and the European Union has started to acknowledge the benefits of it and has started investing ample of money in this eco-friendly domain.
