Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Bioplastics Market

  • The rapid spread of coronavirus pandemic reduced the application of any new plastic bags including biodegradable bags. Consumers are bringing their old fabric and plastic bags, and retail shops and small stores are not providing new plastic bags to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.
  • Prior to COVID-19 outbreak, a large number of multinationals such as Danone, Coca-Cola, and Nestlé promised to adopt biodegradable plastics under pressure from activists and consumers. However, after COVID-19 outbreak governments across different countries made several changes in their regulations regarding disposable and single-use plastics to prevent further spread of the virus. For instance, the State of Maine postponed its ban on plastic bags until January 2021, thus negatively impacting the market growth.
  • In addition, supply chain disruptions due to irregular transport led to increase in lead time of raw materials, such as corn starch, thus delaying the entire product process. For instance, according to a report by Business Standard, the corn starch consumption reduced by 50% from 400,000 tons to 200,000 tons. Moreover, more than 100 countries have locked their international borders for transportation and nonessential trade activities, which hampered the supply–demand chain of the bioplastics market during the COVID-19 scenario.  
  • In 2020, bioplastics prices were high in the Asia-Pacific due to continued regional demand trends and tight product availability. Firm downstream demand for bioplastics in packaging, agriculture, and other sectors and stronger upstream costs are expected to sustain the price gain. Furthermore, import dependency on China for various raw materials for the production of biodegradable plastics may change market scenario.    
  • As China started production in limited capacity, the material price for biodegradable plastic is expected to increase. Industry players are focusing to extend the lead time to avoid such high material price. This is predicted to enhance the performance of the bioplastics market post COVID-19 period.
