Bioplastics Market Share 2023-2028 |Industry Size, Growth and Forecast

Published April 6, 2023

The global bioplastics market size reached US$ 11.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value US$ 23.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 12.1% during 2023-2028.

Bioplastics refer to biodegradable plastic materials produced from renewable biomass sources, including vegetable oils and fats, corn starch, recycled food waste, etc. They do not require fossil fuel as a raw material as compared to common plastics or petro-based polymers. Bioplastics are highly durable, lightweight, and can be molded into multiple shapes and sizes. They consume less amount of energy during the manufacturing process and are easily absorbed by the soil and converted to humus or compost. Bioplastics reduce the need for more landfills and help to decrease plastic waste polluting the environment. Consequently, they find extensive applications across numerous sectors, such as agriculture, consumer goods, textile, automotive, pharmaceutical, etc.

Bioplastics Market Trends:

The growing concern about the harmful impact of plastics across the globe is primarily driving the bioplastics market. Additionally, the escalating demand for bio-based packaging in the consumer goods segment, owing to their higher tensile strength, and the increasing product usage in various other industries to lower carbon and greenhouse gas emissions are further stimulating the global market. Besides this, the launch of favorable initiatives and policies by government bodies across countries aimed at promoting the use of bioplastics to minimize plastic pollution is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor.

Moreover, the shifting preferences toward these plastic products, on account of the inflating oil prices, are also positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the rising investments by leading market players in research and development (R&D) activities to innovate bio-based polyethylene and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles for beverage packaging are expected to propel the bioplastics market over the forecasted period.
