Biodegradable Plastic Market – Overview

Biodegradable Plastic is classified as those plastic which decompose to carbon dioxide and water under the actions of microorganism. It is derived by the fermentation of sugar or canola oil to produce polylactic acid (PLA) or polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) which in turn converted into biodegradable plastics. Some of the types of biodegradable plastic are Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), Polylactic Acid (PLA), Polybutylene Succinate (PBS), Polycaprolactone (PCL), Poly (Butylene Adipate-Co-Terephthalate) (PBAT). The growing demand of biodegradable plastic in wide range of industries such as packaging, agriculture, textile, and, automobile is due to their environmental degradable nature.

Market Research Future concludes that in the recent years, the biodegradable plastic market across the globe has witnessed a tremendous growth and as per the analysis, the growth will remain continue in the upcoming years. Biodegradable plastic market growth is attributed towards the continuously rising growth of the application segment such as agriculture, packaging, and textile. Moreover, increasing awareness regarding the benefits associated with biodegradable plastic along with continuous growth of packaging industry in the developed and developing region worldwide is estimated to drive the market growth. Furthermore, increasing good quality food demand along with the rising need of biodegradable mulch films in agricultural sector to increase yield is expected to drive the market growth. However, high cost associated with the manufacturing of biodegradable plastic as compared to conventional plastic might hinder the market growth.
