Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Bio-Plastic Packaging Market is accounted for $16.80 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $57.28 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period. Bioplastics are plastic materials produced from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, straw, woodchips, sawdust. Bioplastics are biodegradable materials that come from renewable sources and can be used to reduce the problem of plastic waste that is suffocating the planet and contaminating the environment.
Growing Initiatives By The Government & Environment Friendliness
Increasing adoption of it, owing to its numerous benefits such as environment friendliness and biodegradable nature is a key factor expected to drive growth. The increasing consumer preference towards eco-friendly products instead of synthetic derived chemicals products is another factor expected to fuel growth of the target market. Furthermore, increasing research and development activities and investment by beverage manufacturers such as The Coca Cola Company and PepsiCo, which is another factor expected to boost growth.
The high cost of production of bioplastics. Though bioplastics are biodegradable, they cannot be degraded as easily as naturally occurring organic matter. In order to balance the physical properties of plastics and biodegradability of organic matter, the overall cost of production of bioplastics increases significantly.
With rapid urbanization and industrialization, demand for packaging is growing exponentially in emerging economies. The growing demand for eco-friendly, advanced, and effective packaging in countries is boosting the growth of the market. In the coming years, emerging countries are expected to undertake environment-friendly approach for packaging solutions due to strict regulations and supports by the governments. This will create opportunity for the advanced bioplastic packaging solutions in the emerging economies.
The high complexity associated with the production of bioplastic packaging materials from raw materials of agricultural origin is predicted to challenge the expansion of the market. Improved crude oil and natural gas production in the Middle East and Russia by companies leading to lower oil prices is predicted to have a negative impact on the market. The high complexity associated with the production of materials from raw materials of agri-food origin is predicted to be a difficult factor for the market in the near future.
Food & beverage segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
Plastic-based products are associated with a high risk of contamination, owing to which the food & beverage industry is turning towards bioplastic packaging products. Further, growing consumer preference for organic and natural polymers in food packaging is also accelerating the adoption rate of these bioplastic packaging solutions in the food & beverage sector. Such factors are substantially contributing towards the market growth.
The flexible packaging segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The segmental growth of the market is attributed to the increased demand for flexible packing options from a wide variety of industries. Flexible packaging products can also be refilled as well as can be changed into any desired shape. Flexible packaging also offers ease and convenience to the customers in their fast-paced lifestyles and enables the enhanced printing technology that allows the manufacturers to achieve a strong brand presence. Hence, owing to the several benefits offered by flexible packaging, the segment is likely to gain traction over the forecast period.
Region with highest share:
The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the highest market share, owing to growing packaging industry in various countries such as India and China. Furthermore, China launched a policy to increase manufacturers focus on bioplastic products for packaging. Asia-Pacific province is anticipated to grow significantly, owing to the several government initiatives regarding the waste management across economies such as China, India, and Japan.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR, due to the high adoption of eco-friendly packaging solutions, along with the strict governance framework for synthetic polymers, is predicted to drive market expansion. In Europe, supportive government policies include helping consumers give preference to buying bio-based products. Also in the EU, member states are reducing taxes on bio-based products, owing to stringent government regulations against the consumption of non-recyclable plastics and increasing awareness about sustainable packaging in manufacturing industry in various countries in this province.
Key players in the market:
Some of the key players profiled in the Bio-Plastic Packaging Market include Amcor, BASF, Biotec, Braskem, Cargill, Clondalkin, Coopbox, Corbion, DowDuPont, Eastman Chemical Company, Taghleef Industries, Greendot, Huhtamaki, Koninklijke DSM N.V, NatureWorks, Novamont, Perstorp, Toray Industries, Inc., Roquette, Sealed Air, Sonoco, Sphere Tagleef Industries, Tereos.
In June 2020: BASF SE expands its packaging coatings production to South China. The expansion will complement the production capacities in Shanghai, which primarily serve the market in the East China region. The move will support the fast-growing packaging industry in South China and help customers reduce lead times by offering proximity between production and point of use. This also reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions due to the shorter transportation distance.
In May 2020: Toray Industries, Inc. announced that it had created a high tensile modulus of carbon fiber and thermoplastic pellets ideal for injection molding employing that fiber. The pellets can efficiently produce complex, rigid parts that are also light, thereby lowering environmental impact. These advances could greatly enhance cost performance.
In January 2021: Taghleef Industries introduced a new range of bio-based polypropylene (PP) films to its biobased portfolio. Taghleef's bio-based PP films are biodegradable packaging options that are a bio-based alternative to films generated from fossil fuels. ISCC Plus certified Ti's biobased PP films could be used in the same packaging and labeling applications as typical grades made of fossil-based raw materials.
