Bioplastics are synthetic materials sourced from renewable origins like corn, potatoes, rice, soy, sugarcane, wheat, and vegetable oil, whereas biopolymers are polymers found naturally. Bioplastics can either degrade naturally or not. They are primarily classified into biodegradable and non-biodegradable categories and are used across a wide range of industries including packaging, consumer goods, automotive and transportation, agriculture and horticulture, medical, and various other sectors.

PBAT is estimated to be the second largest market in the global bioplastics & biopolymers market, by product type, during the forecast period, by Value.

PBAT (Polybutylene adipate terephthalate) is a biodegradable polyester widely used in the production of bioplastics and biopolymers. It offers excellent biodegradability in various environments, including industrial composting facilities and natural soil conditions. PBAT is commonly used as a component in blends with other biodegradable polymers to improve mechanical properties and enhance the overall performance of bioplastic materials. Its versatility, along with its ability to break down into environmentally friendly byproducts, makes PBAT a valuable ingredient in the development of sustainable packaging, agricultural films, disposable utensils, and other biodegradable products. As the demand for eco-friendly alternatives to traditional plastics grows, PBAT continues to play a crucial role in advancing the bioplastics and biopolymers industry.

Sugarcane/Sugar beet to be the largest market in the global bioplastics & biopolymers market during 2024 to 2029, by value.

Sugarcane and sugar beet serve as vital sources of raw materials for bioplastics and biopolymers, offering abundant stores of fermentable sugars essential for producing eco-friendly plastics like polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). Their widespread cultivation globally provides a sustainable and renewable feedstock for biopolymer manufacturing, without competing with food crops for agricultural land. Additionally, their growth contributes to carbon sequestration, enhancing the environmental profile of bioplastics derived from these sources by mitigating carbon emissions. Leveraging sugarcane and sugar beet underscores the shift towards sustainable practices in the plastics industry, promoting environmental stewardship and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

Consumer goods is estimated to be the second-largest end-use industry, in 2024.

Consumer goods encompasses a wide range of products including packaging, disposable cutlery, bottles, bags, and various other items used in everyday life. The demand for sustainable packaging solutions is particularly high in the consumer goods industry due to increasing environmental awareness among consumers and regulatory pressures to reduce plastic waste. Bioplastics offer a promising alternative as they are derived from renewable resources and can be biodegradable, thereby addressing concerns related to traditional plastics. As a result, many companies in the consumer goods sector are incorporating bioplastics into their product packaging and manufacturing processes to reduce their environmental footprint and meet the evolving preferences of eco-conscious consumers.
