Loose fill packaging materials offer cost-effective protection to lightweight products against vibration or shock during handling or shipping. This packaging material is flexible and therefore, fills the empty spaces in the outer packaging. It is most widely used to fill the empty space around the fragile goods in the cardboard boxes, in order to ensure safe delivery of products during shipping.

Furthermore, biodegradable loose fill, also known as peanuts, is majorly used in the protection of valuable items such as electronic components, fragile consumer products, and glass items. This packaging material has the ability to dissipate static charge and therefore, is used in the packaging of microchips and electronic products that are susceptible to damage due to static electricity.

Rising environmental concerns regarding plastic pollution is driving growth of the biodegradable loose fill packaging market. According to data provided by United Nations in 2015, plastic packaging waste accounted for 47% share in the global plastic waste generation. Rising awareness regarding these factors is fuelling demand for environment-friendly and sustainable packaging solution, which in turn will support growth of global biodegradable loose fill packaging market during the forecast period.

However, higher production cost of biodegradable loose fill’s material is restraining the market growth. The production cost of these materials is higher than conventional packing peanuts. Therefore, preference of consumers and suppliers shift towards low cost packaging materials over biodegradable packaging materials is expected to negatively impact the market growth over the forecast period.
