Bioplastic Market Revenue Growth and Quantitative Analysis Till 2030
The global Bioplastic market was valued at USD 5.3 billion in 2020 to USD 13.1 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 13.8% from 2021 to 2027. Bioplastics have evolved as sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives to synthetic plastic. The demand for bioplastics has gained incredible traction in various plastic applications due to the favorable legislations implemented by numerous governments around the globe. Packaging and consumer durable are two top investment segments for the global bioplastic market. PET is used mainly in bottle packaging. The rapid growth of the global sustainable packaging industry and volatility in crude oil prices drive the market's growth. Moreover, favorable government policies are anticipated to drive the market demand as an eco-friendly substitute.
The high price of biodegradable bioplastic is a major factor restraining industry growth. This issue can be resolved with the volatility in crude oil price, which results in a price rise in petrol plastic. Moreover, this issue can be resolved with the decrease in dependence on petroleum resources and advancement in R&D. The industry, with a healthy capital base and good infrastructure is projected to adopt a forward integration strategy to create its value chain. The “green” PET bottle developed by PepsiCo. is 100% bio-based and has an identical molecular structure.
Therefore, the green bottle exhibits equal efficacy, which includes conventional plastics. The company need not incur any extra cost for manufacturing this bottle as it can be manufactured by the agricultural waste generated from its food industry (1.3 billion pounds of orange peels every year from the Tropicana business). This bottle can break PepsiCo’s dependence on petroleum materials and can reduce carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Huge R&D investment is required to transform this innovation into commercialization. The research should continue to increase the efficiency of the material, simplify its synthesis, and maximize the usage of potential biomaterials. With this development, the manufacturers will be able to produce more valuable and less expensive bioplastic.

Global Bioplastic Market Dynamics
Drivers: Favorable government policy
Various governments across the world adopt favorable regulations and policies to promote the sustainability and biodegradability of bioplastics. These are some of the key factors that boost this market. The European Union is one of the major political advocators of the bioplastics market. In Europe, policymakers formulate environmental policies to create awareness among consumers.
Besides, they are also formulating R&D programs to boost the production of bioplastic in the region. Furthermore, national governments in various European countries also promote the usage/application of sustainable material. Governments in Asia and Europe have now formulated specific stringent policies, which are expected to favor the growth of the bioplastic industry material. For instance, Japan has now focused on achieving at least 20% usage of bioplastics by 2020. According to the recently implemented waste management program, the Government of Singapore advocates recycling plastic waste besides other solid and municipality waste.
Restraints: Limited performance
Due to poor mechanical, thermal, and water absorption properties, bioplastic is not suitable for many applications. For example, due to low melting point & low transparency, first-generation PLA is not suitable for a few packaging applications, requiring high-temperature resistance. Due to the common tensile strength, the starch-based bioplastic is highly brittle. Therefore, it needs to be plasticized with polyether and urea, blended with other materials, or chemically modified for further packaging applications. Due to excellent oxygen barrier properties, the thermoplastics starch is widely used in food-related applications, including food packaging and manufacturing food containers, such as bowls, plates, cups, and egg trays. However, the hygroscopic nature of starch determines that this material is not suitable for high-moisture and liquid food products. To resolve this issue, the manufacturers need specific adaption and technical advancements in the production process. For instance, Sulzer has established a new process for PLA production. With this innovative route, PLA can withstand heat up to 180°C.

Non-biodegradable, by bioplastic type, is having largest market segment during the forecast period
The bioplastics market report has been segmented by type as biodegradable and non-biodegradable plastics. In 2020, Non-biodegradable Plastic had the largest market revenue share of 55.56% in the global bioplastic market.
Non-biodegradable plastic usually does not break down or dissolve into other materials for several years. These plastics can be recycled and used multiple times. Bottles and grocery bags are the common non-biodegradable materials that can be reused. The global non-biodegradable plastic market is segmented into epoxy, polyurethane, polyethylene terephthalate, and others (PA, PE, EPDM, & PTT). The market witnesses high demand owing to the elastic nature of polyethylene films, which enable the production of films with good toughness suitable for food packaging and non-food applications. Innovations in food & beverages packaging drive the demand for polyethylene films. However, fluctuations in the cost of raw materials and stringent regulations imposed for the use of plastic are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Though the market is saturated in North America and Western Europe, Asia-Pacific has huge potential demand due to the growth in end-users such as agriculture, medical, and food industry.
