The global bioplastics & biopolymers market size is expected to grow from USD 10.5 billion in 2020 and USD 27.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 21.7% during the forecast period. This high growth is driven primarily by the growth of the global packaging end-use industry. Besides packaging, bioplastics & biopolymers are used in various end-use industries such as consumer goods, automotive & transportation, agriculture & horticulture, and textile, among others.
The growing need to reduce the dependency on conventional fossil fuels is propelling the demand for bio-based products. This is also supported by the new policies and regulations implemented and adopted by the government bodies globally. These regulations include banning or implementing additional surcharges on the use of conventional plastics in applications, such as shopping bags, packaging materials, and disposables. These increasing regulations and prohibitions against plastic bags and other plastic items are driving the market for bioplastics, especially biodegradable plastics worldwide.
