According to a report published by Greenpeace in December 2020, eco-friendly packaging practices used by multiple retailers, such as Carrefour using tapioca-based plastic bags in Malaysia and Singapore, Costco replacing all plastic straws in the US with paper straws, and 7-11 using half petroleum and half plant-based plastic coverings for onigiri in Japan, among others, are providing new growth opportunities to the market.

Biodegradable Plastic Industry Definition and Major Segments

People all across the world have access to plastic products, which they prefer to utilise in their daily lives. This is because they are inexpensive and may be used for multiple purposes. However, rising use has resulted in a worsening environmental catastrophe, prompting businesses all over the world to look for environmentally suitable alternatives to plastic.

Biodegradable plastic is becoming more popular in this area, as it is created from plant-based and organic raw ingredients and can be dissolved by microorganisms into water, carbon dioxide, and mineral salts within a specified time frame. Biodegradable plastics can be used in a variety of ways, including as plant pots in the packaging and agriculture industries.

Biodegradable Plastic Market Trends

The fundamental driver of the worldwide biodegradable plastic business is consumer awareness of environmental issues and a preference for sustainable alternatives. As a result, businesses around the world are investing in research and development of sustainable manufacturing methods in order to meet consumer expectations while lowering their carbon footprints. In this case, biodegradable polymers are an environmentally friendly solution. Furthermore, countries all over the world are enacting tight rules and restrictions on the use of traditional plastics, thereby encouraging the use of biodegradable plastics. These characteristics are likely to give the biodegradable plastic sector a substantial boost.

Thailand has banned microbeads, cap seals, and oxo-degradable plastics, according to a World Economic Forum article published in January 2020.
