Bio-plastics Market will reach valuation of US$ 43.8 billion by 2021 and is expected to grow at CAGR ~ 28.8% for 2021–2025

Future Market Insights (FMI), in its latest report titled, “Bio-plastics Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2014 to 2020”, estimates that the global bio-plastics market is expected to account for US$ 43.8 Bn by 2020, registering a CAGR of 28.8% during the forecast period. A growing beverage packaging industry, government support for adopting bio-based materials, and rising consumer acceptance for bio-plastics are expected to contribute to the growth of the global bio-plastic market over the forecast period.

In terms of materials, the global bio-plastics market is segmented as bio-PET, bio-PE, bio-PA, bio-degradable polyesters, PLA & PLA blends, starch blends, PHA, and others. Currently, the bio-PET material segment dominates the bio-plastics market and was estimated to be US$ 5.6 Bn in 2014. This segment is expected to reach US$ 29.1 Bn by 2020, with a momentous CAGR of 31.4% for the forecast period. Moreover, increasing demand for bioplastics from the beverage packaging industry and the effectiveness of bio-plastics in one-time-use application has driven the demand for bio-PET in the last few years.

On the basis of application type, the bioplastics market is segmented as bottles, other packaging, food-services, agriculture/horticulture, consumer products, automotive, and others. Among all the aforementioned applications, the bottles segment is expected to dominate the market with 34.4% of the total revenue share by 2020. However, the automotive segment is anticipated to exhibit the second-highest CAGR of 27.5% as compared to other applications during the forecast period. Additionally, the influx of new entrants is predicted to fuel the growth of others application segments, thereby accounting for 5.0% market share by 2020.
