Global Biopolymers Market to witness a CAGR of 15.2% during 2018-2024: Energias Market Research Pvt. Ltd.

NEW YORK, July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global biopolymers market was valued at USD 2,465.4 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 7,196.8 million by 2024, witnessing a CAGR of 15.2% over the forecast period. The growth can be primarily attributed to the increasing environmental and sustainability concerns coupled with favorable government regulations promoting the use of biopolymers. Also, there has been a considerable increase in the usage of biopolymers across various end-use industries which is expected to fuel the market demand.

Furthermore, increasing preference towards bio-based packaging among the consumers has fostered significant progression in the advanced packaging technologies over time. High-end research and development has increased the inclination towards bio-based products over petroleum based products. Technological enhancements could lead to the development of more durable biopolymers at low costs, thereby increasing its application scope. Moreover, recent advancements in biotechnology and public awareness have led to the replacement of conventional polymers with biopolymers.

Bio-PET segment to account for the major share of the biopolymers market

Growing demand for bio-PET in packaging and bottle manufacturing has led to considerable growth in the segment. The bio-PET segment held the major share of the global market in 2017 and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period. Besides being identical to conventional PET in properties, bio-PET offers additional advantages such as biodegradability, excellent biocompatibility, and great mechanical strength, which has expanded its applications across several end-use industries.

Packaging is likely to account for the highest market share due to rising preference for bio-based packaging

Biopolymers can be put to a variety of uses such as water treatment, agriculture, packaging, fibers, automotives, medical and many more. Among all these, packaging emerged as the largest segment due to growing use of biopolymers for food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic packaging. In addition, conventional packaging techniques are increasingly being replaced by bio-based packaging, which has further propelled market demand.

Biopolymers Market - Regional insight

Europe dominated the global market in 2017 and is projected to maintain its dominance over the next seven years. The growth can be majorly attributed to stringent government policies and regulations to ensure sustainable packaging and reduce the hazardous impact of conventional plastics. Also, governments across the globe have encouraged the use of biopolymers by providing subsidies to manufacturers which is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. North America and Asia Pacific are also set to witness healthy growth over the forecast period due to the presence of key market players.
