Global Bioplastics Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global bioplastics market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~18% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing demand for plastic that is biodegradable, in order to reduce environmental pollution caused by chemically manufactured plastics. Moreover, plastics are extensively used in various day-to-day activities, such as, packaging, which generates a significant amount of waste. To reduce this waste, bioplastics are the most feasible alternative to plastics. Therefore, the growing awareness amongst people regarding environmental conservation is estimated to boost the market growth. Additionally, bioplastics possess advanced technical properties, such as, reducing greenhouse gases, and increasing the source efficiency, and is being increasingly adopted amongst various end-user industries. For instance, in 2020, over 2 million metric tons of bio plastic was produced globally. Along with this, the stringent regulations by the government on plastics, and supportive initiatives to promote bioplastics are anticipated to further encourage the market growth.

 Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
