Global Biopolymer Market Size, Trends, Industry Analysis & Forecast 2016-2024

Packaging And Food Services Sector Occupies Over 65% Of The Market For The Need Of Eco-Friendly Products

The global biopolymer market accounted for USD 3.2 billion in 2015 and expected to reach USD 9.8 billion by the end of forecast period i.e. 2024. Further, the market is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 11.2% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2024.

More than 80% of polymers used globally are derivatives or by-products of the petroleum industry. To overcome negative impacts of conventional polymers, biopolymers were introduced which are bio-degradable in nature. Biopolymers are derived naturally from plant proteins and starch which can be easily decomposed in the environment. Biomass basically consists of non-food crops like sugar beet, potatoes, and wheat to produce polylactic acid (PLA). Volatility in the prices of crude oil and limited availability of fossil fuel resources boosts the growth of biopolymer market. Vast application of biopolymer in the medical industry for controlled drug release and wound management will help the business players to increase the penetration of products in the healthcare sector.

According to Goldstein Research, global biopolymer market is segmented on the basis of product, application and by end-user. Regionally, Europe is the major consumer of biopolymer products in global market. Effective laws and regulation in Western Europe contributed to the dominance of Europe in the global market throughout the forecast period. Asia-Pacific region anticipated to witness robust growth due to rapid industrialization and growing global pressure on developing regions to curb the pollution.
