Market Dynamics

Drivers

Biodegradable polymers have found uses in a variety of industries, but the most popular application is in the packaging business, where they exhibit qualities similar to traditional alternatives. They are used in both rigid and flexible packing. With an expansion in worldwide e-commerce, a significant amount of packing material is likely to be required in the coming years. Because bio-based plastics may readily replace the conventional plastic, and their use can be a great way to reduce plastic spread pollution in a environment. Food and pharmaceutical sectors are also expanding their need for the renewable feedstock-based polymers. Aside from that, the demand for ready-to-eat foods has grown in both established and emerging nations. As a result, makers of such items have aggressively sought packaging the materials that are very safe and also inert to packed products and further have little to no environmental impact. These polymers have become the preferred material for such businesses.

Plastics has several applications in the agriculture and the horticulture. They are used to make the greenhouses, bins, and silos storage bags, among other things. Furthermore, conventional semi-intensive and the intensive farming systems and entail the uses mulching films to harvest-protection bags suppresses the weed development, and shields crops from pesticides, and manages soil moisture to produce a healthy micro-climate. Conventional plastic, on the other hand, is not biodegradable and remains in the environment for numerous harvest seasons. It harms the ecosystem and impairs agricultural and product growth by preventing roots from accessing water and nutrients in the soil. As a result of these issues, numerous firms creating agricultural plastic goods have explored biodegradable polymers made from renewable and sustainable raw ingredients that are both technically and commercially viable. Aside from encouraging plant development, biodegradable plastics disintegrate in the natural environment and to contribute to the soil enrichment. As a result, demand for such bio-based plastic is increasing in the agricultural and horticultural industries bode well for the global bioplastics market growth throughout the forecast year.

Restraints

Despite the fact that biodegradability is a clear benefit, most grades require very specialized industrial composting techniques to disintegrate, and only a few economies have a high density of infrastructure to handle these items. As a result, they may end up in landfills or pollute recycling material, causing environmental damage. As a result, a separate process is necessary to correctly dispose such polymers, which result in greater product costs.

Because the feedstock crops utilized in production are usually used to feed people globally, the land required to make biodegradable plastics competes with food production. According to the Plastic Pollution Coalition, growing feedstock crops will require an area of 13800 square kilometers to supply current worldwide demand for these plastics. This area is greater than Belgium, the Netherlands, and Denmark combined. All of these considerations have resulted in higher product pricing when compared to traditional plastics. According to Columbia University's Earth Institute, PLA can be 20-50 percent more expensive than equivalent materials due to the complicated process necessary to convert corn and sugarcane into lactide monomers for PLA.

Opportunities

Bioplastics are utilized in flexible packaging because they are environmentally friendly and easily degradable. They are used in food packaging films, toilet paper, diapers, sanitary towels medications, beverage bottles, packaging films, and, cardboard and coat paper for food wrapping paper, non-food packaging such as napkins and tissues and coated cardboards to the manufacture cups and plates. They are also utilized in flexible and loose-fill packaging. Cornstarch bioplastics have uses in flexible and loose-fill packaging. Polylactic acid (PLA) is mostly utilized in food packaging, whereas bio polyethylene, bio polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and bio polypropylene are the most commonly used to the packaging films. Bioplastics are increasingly being used to make plastic bags since they are environmentally beneficial.

Challenges

They are significantly more expensive than traditional plastics (that could be 2 to 4 times costly, depending on the product) because downstream technology is continually changing, there are uncertainty in technologies and processes. Uncertainties exist in bioplastic post-use processing and end-of-life alternatives.

Substitutes, both real and not-so-authentic, also pose competitive barriers to adoption of the bioplastics in many mainstream markets. Awareness among consumer - a variety of myths lead to often incorrect grasp of those market, which resulting in the poor decision making with respect to investments.
