Rising population and rapid urbanization in emerging economies and increase in demand from end-use industries are expected to offer significant growth opportunities to manufacturers of bioplastics & biopolymers.

New York, Aug. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Bioplastics & Biopolymers Market by Type, End-Use Industry, Region - Global Forecast to 2026" -

Packaging accounted for the largest share in the bioplastics & biopolymers market in terms of value.
Packaging accounted for the largest share in the bioplastics & biopolymers market in terms of value, followed by textiles and consumer goods.Stringent regulations regarding environmental conservation, especially in developing economies, such as China, India, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and South Africa, are the major growth factors for the bioplastics & biopolymers market.

Food & beverage manufacturers are increasingly switching to bioplastics & biopolymers to mitigate environmental and economic issues.Increasing prices of fuel and usage of fossil fuels for manufacturing conventional plastics have made manufacturers switch to bioplastics & biopolymers.

In many regions, especially Europe and North America, stringent governmental regulations are forcing industries to reduce their carbon footprint, which has increased the demand for bio-based products in the packaging industry.

PLA is the fastest-growing biodegradable type of bioplastics & biopolymers materials.
PLA is the most commonly used type of bioplastic & biopolymer.It is made from renewable resources; it is compostable as well as biodegradable.

It is derived from corn starch (in the US and Canada), tapioca roots, chips, or starch (mostly in Asia), or sugarcane (in RoW). PLA is a versatile material that features excellent barrier properties, non-toxic nature, and is available in high-performance PLA grades that are ideal replacements for PS (polystyrene), PP (polypropylene), and ABS in more demanding applications.

Europe is estimated to be the largest market for bioplastics & biopolymers in 2021
Europe is estimated to be the largest market for bioplastics & biopolymers in 2021, in terms of value.Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and the UK are the major countries in the European bioplastics & biopolymers market.

Germany was the largest bioplastics & biopolymers market in Europe in 2020. The demand for bioplastics & biopolymers in the country is consistently increasing due to the rising environmental concerns and the implementation of stringent regulations on the use of petroleum-based plastics.
