Global Bioplastics Packaging Market: Dynamics

More than 200 mn tonnes of waste is created by plastics causing major landfill issues. Manufacturers of packaging products are focussing on increasing the use of use of bioplastic packaging, which can reduce this plastic waste to a great extent. PLA, which is a biodegradable plastic developed by NatureWorks LLC., is highly supported by the U.S department of energy. Government organizations across the globe are working in partnership with private sector companies that focus on manufacturing bioplastics packaging products. The government has also exempted tax on bioplastic resin manufacturing.

This move is anticipated to promote the growth of the packaging market across many regions. The U.S government is passing new bills such as the Federal Farm Bill Energy title 9, which encourages sale of bioplastics items. However, a lack of proper compositing grounds is expected to hinder revenue growth of the market. Bioplastics do not get the required environment for their degradation everywhere. Bioplastics require the presence of microorganisms at a high temperature for degradation.

Microbes break down bioplastics into CO2, H2o, and CH4. There are different types of decomposition based on bioplastic composites, such as soil biodegradable, marine biodegradable, anaerobically digestible, and home compostable.
