Worldwide Bioplastics and Biopolymers Industry to 2025 - Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic


DUBLIN, Feb. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The "The Global Market for Bioplastics and Biopolymers 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Nearly 270 million tonnes of petroleum are used every year in the production of plastics. Apart from the environmental problems associated with extracting the non-renewable resource, nearly 80 million tonnes of plastics end up in landfills. Bioplastics and biopolymers are a biodegradable and natural alternative.

Bioplastics are biobased products that allow for greater product sustainability due to their biodegradability and renewability. Their use is attractive as bioplastics that biodegrade to CO2 and H2O mitigate the negative effects of standard plastic (litter and damage to aqua environments). Renewable feedstocks can be utilized instead of petroleum, thereby reducing global dependence on crude oil and lessening the impact on climate.

Despite growing global environmental awareness, bioplastics currently account for only around 1 percent of the >365 million tons of plastics produced annually, but with annual growth of >30%. Due to the development of advanced biopolymers and materials, reduced costs, regulations and increased consumer awareness, demand is rising.
