CHICAGO, Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the new market research report "Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market by Type (Non-Biodegradable/Bio-Based, Biodegradable), End-Use Industry (Packaging, Consumer Goods, Automotive & Transportation, Textiles, Agriculture & Horticulture), Region - Global Forecast to 2026", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Global bioplastics & biopolymers market size is projected to grow from USD 10.7 billion in 2021 to USD 29.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 22.7% between 2021 and 2026.
Bioplastics are plastics derived from renewable sources such as corn, potatoes, rice, soy, sugarcane, wheat, and vegetable oil, while biopolymers are naturally occurring polymers. A bioplastic may or may not be biodegradable. Bioplastics are mainly segmented into biodegradable and non-biodegradable plastics for various applications in the packaging, consumer goods, automotive & transportation, agriculture & horticulture, medical, and other end-use industries.
Biodegradable bioplastics & biopolymers type will account for the major share of the market in terms of value
Biodegradable are the largest type segment in terms of value during the forecast period. Biodegradable polymers are high molecular weight compounds that decompose naturally in the environment through bacteria and other microorganisms during a span of time. The process produces natural byproducts, such as biomass, water, gases, and inorganic salts. Biodegradable polymers are made from renewable sources such as corn oil, starch, orange peels, and plant materials and deteriorate into natural by-products. The growing concerns related to environmental pollution and non-renewable finite petroleum resources are leading to the increasing use of biodegradable bioplastics & biopolymers.
In terms of value, the packaging segment is projected to account for the largest share of the bioplastics & biopolymers market, by end-use industry, during the forecast period.
Packaging is one of the end-use industries that dominates the bioplastics & biopolymers market. Bioplastics, and especially biodegradable bioplastics, have increasing demand to replace conventional plastics to address environmental concerns. The use of bioplastics is increasing in applications such as bottles, films, clamshell cartons, waste collection bags, carrier bags, mulch films, and food service ware.
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for bioplastics & biopolymers between 2021 and 2026.
APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for bioplastics & biopolymers between 2021 and 2026.
