The global biodegradable plastic market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.03% in the forecast period to reach USD5741.74 million by 2027. The growing environmental consciousness is driving the demand for biodegradable plastic among the various end-users. Also, the high-end investment in the research and development activities by the market players to make them usable in the healthcare industry and the favorable government policies emphasizing reduced carbon footprint and efficient waste management techniques are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the global biodegradable plastic market over the next five years.
The traditional plastics take a large amount of time to decompose, and landfills and waste fill collected at various spots pose severe health and environmental risk to the nearby surroundings. Biodegradable plastics are easily decomposable and absorbed back into the ecosystem in comparatively less time than traditional plastics. The rise in efforts taken by the consumers to remove the use of non-biodegradable conventional plastics and the high awareness about the benefits of adopting sustainable plastic solutions are having a significant impact on accelerating the global biodegradable plastic market demand across the globe. With the rise in the focus on improving sustainability and stringent government regulations, the demand from various end-use industries is expected to grow at a rapid rate.
The global biodegradable plastic market is segmented into type, end user industry, regional distribution, and competitive landscape. Based on the end user industry, the market is divided into packaging, consumer goods, textiles, and others. The packaging industry dominated the market in 2021, with a market share of 60.40% of the overall market share. The segment is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The change in the lifestyle of the consumers and the high demand from several end-use industries such as healthcare, food, cosmetic & personal care industries are expected to drive the segment demand in the coming years.
