    What are bioplastics?

    Plastic materials produced from renewable biomass sources are known as bioplastics. They are generally made up of corn starch, straw, woodchips, sawdust, vegetable fats and oils, and recycled food waste and have vast applications in the packaging industry.


    Covid-19 had resulted in lockdowns and restrictions, stricter border controls. This made big businesses, the government, and the plastics industry to renew supply chains. The pandemic had a major impact on the social and financial sectors across the globe, and all the major industries suffered. However, the need for bioplastic and biopolymer biodegradable takeaway containers saw an increase in demand. Still, the pandemic had an uneven effect on the bioplastics & biopolymers market.

    Market Dynamics

    The growth of the bioplastics & biopolymers market is primarily driven by-

    • The rise in environmental consciousness and the implementation of regulations: The escalating recognition of environmental problems, encompassing plastic pollution and carbon emissions, has engendered a heightened need for sustainable alternatives to conventional plastics. Bioplastics and biopolymers, sourced from renewable materials like biomass and agricultural waste, present a more ecologically sound choice. Additionally, government regulations and initiatives aimed at curbing plastic waste and fostering sustainability have played a significant role in driving market expansion.
    • The need for a circular economy: The idea of a circular economy, which promotes the reuse and recycling of resources, has gained considerable momentum over time. Bioplastics and biopolymers are in line with this concept, as they can be biodegradable or compostable, facilitating the reduction of plastic waste and the establishment of a closed-loop system.
    • Technological progress and innovative breakthroughs: Continuous research and development endeavors have yielded the exploration of novel and enhanced bioplastics and biopolymers. Advancements in biotechnology, including genetic engineering and fermentation processes, have enabled the production of bioplastics that exhibit improved properties, performance, and cost-effectiveness. These innovations have broadened the range of applications for bioplastics, establishing them as viable substitutes for conventional petroleum-based plastics.
    • Enabling government policies and incentivization: Governments worldwide have proactively enacted comprehensive policies and regulations to foster the widespread adoption of bioplastics and biopolymers. Such measures encompass a range of financial incentives, tax benefits, grants, and subsidies, specifically tailored to drive research and development, production, and uptake of sustainable materials. These strategic initiatives have not only galvanized market expansion but have also cultivated an environment conducive to the proliferation of bioplastics and biopolymers.
    • Expanding industrial utilization: The versatile adoption of bioplastics and biopolymers is permeating diverse industry sectors, including packaging, agriculture, electronics, automotive, and textiles. Surging awareness among enterprises to use cleaner alternatives has steered the demand for bioplastics and biopolymers further, propelling market expansion.
