Synopsis of Biodegradable Plastics Market

The Global Biodegradable Plastics Market is expected to reach ~16.8 billion by 2022 with CAGR ~8.4% between 2016-2022. 

Based on Product Type, Biodegradable Plastics is segmented into polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), polylactic acid (PLA), polybutylene succinate (PBS), polycaprolactone (PCL), starch-based plastics, regenerated cellulose. Polylactic acid-based biodegradable plastics dominate the Biodegradable Plastics Market. This is due to large scale application in packaging industry owing to superior properties such as high mechanical strength and low toxicity. Polylactic acid is fermented by action of wheat starch and corn starch which provide a good appearance to various products across the end user industries. Starch based Biodegradable Plastics are expected to overtake polylactic acid based Biodegradable Plastics over the forecasted period owing to high tensile strength and impact resistance in packaging and consumer goods.
