Copyright Business Wire 2018

The "Bioplastics - A Global Market Overview 2018" report has been added to's offering.

Bioplastics industry is in emerging phase, though being in existence for about a decade or more. Bioplastics are used in an increasing number of markets, from packaging, catering products, consumer electronics, automotive, agriculture/horticulture and toys to textiles and a number of other segments. Bioplastics can be produced from renewable resources, as well as synthetic polymers and not all bioplastics are bio-based. Bioplastics can encompass a complete group of materials that can be biobased, biodegradable, or both.

Asia-Pacific accounts the largest regional market for biodegradable bioplastics with an estimated 351.8 thousand metric tons in 2017 (40.4% share), reaching 565 thousand metric tons in 2022. Asia-Pacific is also anticipated the fastest growing regional market with a robust CAGR of 9.9% during 2017-2022 period. Europe is estimated the second largest regional biodegradable bioplastics market with 31.8% share 2017.
