Outlook on the Bioplastics and Biopolymers Global Market to 2025 - Main Producers and Production Capacities

Research and Markets
·5 min read

Dublin, Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Bioplastics and Biopolymers 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Nearly 270 million tonnes of petroleum are used every year in the production of plastics. Apart from the environmental problems associated with extracting the non-renewable resource, nearly 80 million tonnes of plastics end up in landfills. Bioplastics and biopolymers are a biodegradable and natural alternative.

Bioplastics are biobased products that allow for greater product sustainability due to their biodegradability and renewability. Their use is attractive as bioplastics that biodegrade to CO2 and H2O mitigate the negative effects of standard plastic (litter and damage to aqua environments). Renewable feedstocks can be utilized instead of petroleum, thereby reducing global dependence on crude oil and lessening the impact on climate.

Despite growing global environmental awareness, bioplastics currently account for only around 1 percent of the >365 million tons of plastics produced annually, but with annual growth of >30%. Due to the development of advanced biopolymers and materials, reduced costs, regulations and increased consumer awareness, demand is rising.

This report covers:

  • Analysis of non-biodegradable bio-based plastics and biodegradable plastics and polymers.

  • Global production capacities, market demand and trends 2019-2025

  • Analysis of synthetic biopolymers market including Polylactic acid (Bio-PLA), Polyethylene terephthalate (Bio-PET), Polytrimethylene terephthalate (Bio-PTT), Polyethylene furanoate (Bio-PEF), Polyamides (Bio-PA), Poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (Bio-PBAT), Polybutylene succinate (PBS) and copolymers, Polyethylene (Bio-PE), Polypropylene (Bio-PP)

  • Analysis of naturally produced bio-based polymers including Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), Polysaccharides, Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), Cellulose nanocrystals, Cellulose nanofibers, Protein-based bioplastics, Algal and fungal.

  • Market segmentation analysis. Markets analysed include packaging, consumer goods, automotive, building & construction, textiles, electronics, agriculture & horticulture.

  • More than 225 companies profiled including products and production capacities. Companies profiled include major producers such as NatureWorks, Total Corbion, Danimer Scientific, Novamont, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Indorama, Braskem, Avantium, Borealis, Cathay, Arkema, DuPont, BASF and many more.
