Global Biopolymer Packaging Market - Forecasts & Trends (2015-2020) - Driven by Environmental Concerns & Higher Energy Costs - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Biopolymer Packaging Market - Forecasts and Trends (2015 - 2020)" report to their offering.

Biopolymers are polymers that are biodegradable. There are majorly four types of biopolymer starch, sugar, cellulose, and synthetic materials. Recently, developments in biodegradable polymers and renewable input materials have become key focus to scale-up the production and enhance product properties. Biopolymers larger scale production will reduce prices and increase availability over the forecast period.

Biopolymers have advanced properties that make them appropriate for use in protecting products from moisture, making products easier to distribute and increasing shelf-life. The use of cellophane (cellulose) for making packaging material has been present since long time because of its properties like transparency, high-quality folding properties, and biodegradability and can be composted by existing waste processing plant.

There are various types of Biopolymers such as polymers that are directly extracted from processed and biomass, polymers that are made by bacteria such as PHB, and PHA and polymers that are made from bio-based precursors such as PLA.

The global biopolymer packaging market is expected to witness compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.67% from 2015 to 2020.

Biopolymer packaging market is basically driven by environmental concerns and higher energy costs. Certainly, biopolymers will rapidly grow in demand as consumers become aware of importance of reduced carbon footprint and its significance for industry and the environment. Environmental concerns and the increasing costs for fossil fuel products will result in shift towards biopolymer packaging products. Moreover, packagers, brand owners and retailers are adopting solutions which are sustainable and can be used to
