Starch-based Bioplastics Market to Deliver Outstanding Growth and Remarkable Opportunities, Analysis, Demand & Growth

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Starch-based Bioplastics Market by Technology, Type, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030,” the global starch-based bioplastics market was valued at $1.4 Billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3.6 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2021 to 2030. The starch blend with PLA segment accounted for maximum share of total market in 2020.

Starch is an attractive biopolymer owing to its abundance, low cost, and potential application in the production of biodegradable films in the form of thermoplastic starch (TPS). However, availability of the thermoplastic starch-based (TPS) film is limited due to its hydrophilic nature, which has resulted in the changes of its mechanical properties when exposed to high relative humidity. The environmental issues associated with disposal of non-biodegradable materials have led to the development of biodegradable materials that exhibit maximum usage in packaging applications on a wide commercial scale.

These films are used as a synthetic plastic and glass substitute in agriculture applications to reduce adverse environmental impacts. In addition, high demand for cultivation of soft fruits and vegetables; and increase in consumer expenditure towards food, beverage, and cosmetics are expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, strong growth indicators in the end-user industries such as personal care, medical, and food on account of increasing consumer spending power also influence the global market growth. However, high product prices in comparison with existing counterparts is expected to hamper the market demand.

The starch blend with PLA segment accounted for the maximum share, in terms of volume, in 2016. PLA is an aliphatic, biodegradable, and hydrophobic polyester produced from the polymerization of lactic acid molecules and has properties comparable to plastics made from petroleum. The multiple properties of PLA such as enhanced process ability and mechanical properties make it effective among medical and pharmaceutical applications such as packaging, disposable materials, and medical textile industry. Furthermore, introduction of new medical devices based on PLA, such as degradable sutures, drug-releasing microparticles, nanoparticles, and porous scaffolds for cellular applications, owing to their longer strength retention, increases the market demand for these films.
