Biopolymer Packaging Market Analysis by Material Used (Polyactides, Bio-Polyethylene, Starch, Cellulose), by Types of packaging (Cartons, bags & Pouches, Bottles & Cans, and Other), by End-User (Food & Beverages Industry, Pharmaceutical, Agriculture Sector, & Home Care) - Forecast 2017-2025
Biopolymers are the biodegradable polymers made of starch, sugar, cellulose and many more.Biopolymers coating in the packaging retard unwanted moisture transfer in food products, are good oxygen and oil barriers, are biodegradable, and have potential to replace current synthetic paper and paperboard coatings.Biopolymerbased materials have gathered attention from packaging industry due to rising concerns in recent years from environmental as well as economic perspectives of traditional petroleum based polymers. Pharmaceutical industry has seen a lot of regulatory actionto raise the bar for packaging of products. It accounts for potential machines for 100% non-destructive inspection of seal integrity.
Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the global biopolymer packaging market size is set to reach USD 17.4 billion by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 15.4% over the forecast years. The growth of biopolymer packaging market is anticipated to grow on the lines of the existing traditional polymer market, being the closest and sustainable substitute. For instance, McDonald’s in 2016 used 50% of its guest packaging from sustainable sources and is dedicated to increase its share to 100% sustainable packaging.

Trends, Drivers and Challenges to Market Growth
According to the report, packaging is the advertisement of the product which requires being as per the changing social trends, profitability, differentiation, environmental awareness and sustainability. Thus, there is a rising trend of consumers buying the products that are packed in biodegradable packages, whether the food or beverages or medicines or any daily need product, that are light weight, easy to store and attractive.
The major driving factor for the growth of biopolymer packaging market is the rising government regulations over the use of traditional polymers, which is paving the way for biopolymers to be used in packaging. For instance, the joint Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code specified various regulation for the food manufacturers and retailers to not to use any materials that can cause any alimentary or respiratory problems, bodily harm, distress, or discomfort or any other hazards to consumers.
Further, the major challenge for the biopolymer packaging market is the availability of the feedstock and biomass for the purpose of developing biopolymers.The land area need to grow biomass for material purpose is 2.0% which was 106.0 million hectare globally in 2015. The concerns of food security are raising the problems for the availability of feedstock.
