The biodegradable food packaging films market is estimated to grow with a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. The rapid increase in non-biodegradable food packaging waste has caused adverse environmental concerns. This has led to the development of polymers made from renewable resources for food packaging. Natural polymers derived from agricultural products (such as starch, proteins, cellulose, and plant oils) are the primary resource for developing renewable and biodegradable polymer materials. The growth of the market can also be attributed to factors such as the increasing demand of food and beverages products as well as rising concern in environment and food safety amongst individuals on a global level. According to the European Bioplastics, Global production capacities of bioplastics in the year 2019 and 2020 were 1.95 million tons and 2.11 million tons respectively.
The market is segmented based on type into PLA, Starch Blends, Biodegradable Polyesters, PHA and others, out of which, PLA segment is anticipated to grab the largest share by the end of 2021 on account of instant availability of raw materials and rising demand of biopolymers in the food and beverages packaging industry. Raw materials used in the manufacturing of biodegradable food packaging such as PLA, PHA, starch, and PBS have volatile prices. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
