Biodegradable Plastics Market Application, Demand, COVID-19 Analysis, Forecast by 2022


Biodegradable Plastics Market Overview

The global biodegradable plastics market is expected to reach a valuation of USD 16.8 billion by 2022, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR). The global biodegradable plastics market is expected to exhibit a strong 8.4% CAGR over the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.

The global biodegradable plastics is mainly driven by the growing awareness about the ecological damage caused by the growing volume of plastic waste and the increasing government interventions in the area to offer solid support to efforts that aim to resolve the issue of plastic pollution at its roots. The discovery of biodegradable plastics dates back to the 1970s, since when the development of the biodegradable plastics has steadily gained steam as the world’s consumption of plastic materials has grown exponentially over the same time period. The growing volume of plastic waste has bent governments as well as public will, particularly in developed areas of the world, to take concrete steps towards eradicating the problem.

Governments all over the world are funding research efforts into the production of biodegradable plastics, as they look to use human ingenuity to resolve a human-caused problem. This is likely to be a major driver for the global biodegradable plastics market over the forecast period, as groundbreaking research is expected in the area of biodegradable plastics in the coming years.
