Biodegradable Plastic Market Outlook - 2027

The global biodegradable plastic market was valued at $1.6 billion in 2019 is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2020 to 2027.

Biodegradable plastic is a plant-based plastic with no hazardous effects on the environment. It degrades naturally in base compounds in a reasonable amount of time. Hence, plastic, defined as biodegradable, is made of molecule that can break down naturally by the action of micro-organisms. Some of the major known types of biodegradable plastic include, Polylactic Acid) (PLA), Polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT), Polybutylene Succinate (PBS), Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), and starch blends.

The global biodegradable plastic market is in the introductory phase of the industry life cycle and is expected to explore new growth opportunities during the coming years. Some of the basic factors driving the demand for the market include governmental initiatives to eliminate single use plastic and strict regulatory outlook against the use of conventional plastic products.

Industry trends are shifting toward biobased products to reduce dependence on conventional plastics. Moreover, most of the manufacturers in industries such as packaging, textile and agriculture are shifting toward biobased plastic due to stringent regulations from the government. Such factors are largely impacting the biodegradable plastic market growth.

On the other hand, the growth of the market is negatively impacted by high cost of biodegradable plastic over its conventional counterparts. For instance, polylactic acid based bioplastics are at least eight times as expensive as the petroleum-based plastics. However, new biopalstics made from the skins of tropical fruits at a lower price, are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities in upcoming times.

The global biodegradable plastic market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Based on type, the market is classified into PolylacticAcid (PLA), Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate (PBAT), Polybutylene Succinate (PBS), Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), starch blends, and others. On the basis of application, the global biodegradable plastic market is categorized into packaging, agriculture, textile, consumer durable and others. Based on region, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Some of the major manufacturers studied and profiled in the global biodegradable plastic market are BASF SE, Dow Inc., Novamont S.p.A., Plantic, Natureworks, Corbion N.V., Biome Technologies plc, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, Eastman Chemical Company, and Danimer Scientific.

Biodegradable Plastic, By Region

Europe accounted for the highest revenue share in both biodegradable plastic market. This is attributed to European legal framework and strategies that are expected to boost the extensive use of biobased plastic products and provide growth opportunities for the Europe biodegradable market. LAMEA is expected to witness fastest growth rate owing to the large presence of sugarcane feedstock, which can be utilized for production of bioplastics. Increase in demand for bioplastic products among European customers stimulates the growth of biobased products in this region. European customers choose bioplastic products over conventional plastic products considering their environmental benefits. Thus Europe has significant market share in terms of revenue in the global biodegradable market.

Biodegradable plastic, by Application

Packaging emerged as the global leader in terms of revenue in biodegradable plastic market. This is attributed to shifting trend of consumers from synthetic to biobased products in response to the growing environmental awareness. In food packaging, biodegradable plastic is offering a promising functionality and is being used in range of applications. Rise in preferences for packaged food in response to demographic and life style changes directly impact the demand for biodegradable plastic in packaging applications. Agriculture is expected to witness highest growth rate owing to growing application of biodegradable mulch films in agriculture. The biodegradable mulch film is becoming more popular than traditional plastic films. This is attributed to many factors that indicate the market for biodegradable mulch film is developing due to greater decomposition in the soil. It is estimated that 75%-80% content in the mulch film is renewable and its use is increasing.

Biodegradable plastic is considered as the major innovation from renewable material as the world is discovering alternatives to single use plastic products. It is being adopted as a perfect substitute to single use plastic as this plastic decomposes after a definite period of time by causing no harm to environment.

Increase in number of manufacturers, favorable government policies for the adoption of sustainable and biodegradable products, and rise in availability of renewable feedstock boost the growth of the biodegradable plastic market. Rise in consumer acceptance due to various awareness and education programs regarding biobased products is providing a new perspective to eliminate usage of conventional plastic. However, higher price of biobased plastic as compared to traditional plastic coupled with low performance standards hamper the market growth.

At present, use of biodegradable plastic in packaging is the highest and is projected to remain the same through 2027 on account of its favorable properties. On the other hand, relative inferior performance of biodegradable plastic especially PLA plastics against traditional petroleum-based plastics is expected to be the key concern. The production of bioplastics is highest in Asia-Pacific owing to the huge availability of renewable feedstock. Despite being biodegradable, one of the key advantages is its properties are similar to the conventional plastic, which makes biodegradable plastic a perfect substitute to conventional plastic.
