In addition, changing lifestyle and increasing awareness to use environmentally-sustainable products is stoking the demand for bio-based packaging. To serve this demand, topnotch players are pouring in money for research and development in order to introduce newer biopolymers. These factors are anticipated to further growth of the biopolymers market.

Easy Availability of Feedstock a Boon for Market

“The availability of raw materials required for the production of biopolymers is another key factor driving the global biopolymers market,” says a TMR analyst. Biopolymers are either available naturally or are obtained from living organisms, which make them biodegradable. Starch, sugar, natural fibers, and other organic compounds are combined in varying composition to obtain biopolymers that serve as substitutes for conventional polymers. Biopolymers have features that overcome disposal issues associated with conventional polymers. The carbon neutrality and sustainability that make biopolymers renewable is their another distinguishable feature.

On the downside, high cost of biopolymer production and lack of infrastructure in emerging economies for the production of biopolymers is challenging the market's growth.

Among the various segments based on type, bio-PET, bio-PE, and biodegradable polyesters hold the leading share in the biopolymers market on account of their excellent biodegradability and biocompatibility features. Application-wise, packaging, textiles, consumer goods, agriculture, electronics, construction, and others are the segments of the global biopolymers market. Among them, packaging occupies the leading market share mainly because of sustainability and biodegradability attributes of biopolymers combined with their versatile physical properties.

Geographically, Europe has emerged as the most market for biopolymers. This is mainly because of green procurement practices adopted by the European Union.
