Biodegradable Polymers Market Outlook – 2030

Biodegradable polymers are degradable in nature and break down into smaller molecules with the action of agents like microorganisms and nature. Based on feedstock, they are classified into natural bio-degradable polymers formed in nature and synthetic biodegradable polymers based on petroleum. Biodegradable polymers are advantageous over non-biodegradable polymers as they are less toxic, have lesser side effects, help to improve patient compliance, and maintains stabilization of the drug. The biodegradable plastics are increasingly finding uses in niche application such as in shale gas industry, hygiene products, and in fishing gears, among other applications these are projected to act as an opportunity for the market in future.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

  • The coronavirus's unfavorable global effects are already evident, and they will have a big impact on the biodegradable polymers in 2020.
  • The World Health Organization declared a public health emergency after the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019. The disease has spread to over 100 nations and resulted in massive deaths all across the world. Exports & Imports, global manufacturing, tourism, and financial sectors have all been heavily damaged.
  • The downward pressure on the global economy, which had previously shown signs of improvement, has escalated once more. The outbreak of the virus has added danger factors to the international economy's already sluggish development. Many international groups have stated that the global economy is experiencing its most difficult moment since the financial crisis.
  • The lockdown has resulted in hampering the imports and exports of various goods. Also, the uncertainty created in the market in the consumers’ buying pattern has resulted in hampering the biodegradable polymers market.

Top Impacting Factors

Non-decomposable plastics are a global issue. Governments around the world are tackling this problem by banning single use plastics and promoting use of biodegradable plastics. Moreover, consumers are willing to pay more for biodegradable plastics owing to their eco-friendly nature. Packaging is one of the leading end used segment of biodegradable plastics and is used in both rigid packaging and flexible packaging. Replacement of conventional plastics by these products in food packaging such as boxes, wraps, cups, and plates is gaining momentum which is supporting the growth of biodegradable plastic market. The agriculture sector also held a significant share in the market.

Market trends

  • Increasing demand in the packaging industry.
  • Biodegradable polymers are used in both flexible and rigid packaging applications. Biodegradable polymers are used for wrapping organic food, as well as for premium branded product with particular requirements. Biodegradability is an important component of food packaging of perishable food items. Due to all these elements and factors, the market of the biodegradable polymers is expected to grow in upcoming years.
  • Growing concerns regarding environmental degradation and use of eco-friendly items.
  • With the growing concern of the consumers regarding the pollution and environmental degradation various steps are taken by the government to ensure safety and integrity of the environment. Because of this reason the traditional non-biodegradable plastic usage is being replaced by the biodegradable plastics and hence the market is expanding.
  • Growing consumer demands and needs owing to industrialization and urbanization.
  • Developing countries like China and India is going through the process of urbanization and industrialization in the recent past. Consumer goods emerged as one of the largest industry for biodegradable plastics. The major consumer courts considered under the segment are household appliances, electronic devices, and various other electronic gadgets. Electronic devices consisting of parts such as casing, circuit boards, and storage that are made from conventional plastics, are now being replaced by biodegradable plastic for their manufacturing process.
