India Sustainable Polymers Market

Market Overview

India plastics and polymer industry was on strong growth from 2016 to 2017 reaching to 1.7 lakh crore from 1.02 lakh crore in 2016. The increasing concerns over sustainable environment, there is a shift towards using sustainable polymers. Till 2016 bio plastics constituted only 1% of the total plastic but it is growing at the rate of 7.3% annually. Per capita plastic consumption in 2017 was 11 kg and same for US was 109 kg, showing the growth prospects of the plastics sector in India owing to the huge share of packaging industry followed by rebounding construction industry in India after the RERA, an act was passed by Indian Parliament in 2016.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast the India sustainable polymers market to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period 2016-2024. Further, the market is anticipated to reach USD 7.41 million by the end of forecast period owing to increasing opportunities of using plastics in automotive, agriculture and packaging industry.

India Sustainable Polymers - Market Trends, Drivers and Challenges

Biopolymers are in trend making polymers entirely from tapioca and vegetable starches. These innovations has also made edible plastic cutlery made from rice, wheat and sorghum as the primary ingredient. This has reduced the use of plastic cutlery and henceforth decreasing pollution from its disposal and contributing to ecological balance.

Sustainable polymers market is witnessing growth driven by the application of green chemistry to produce green and natural polymers and the new methods for producing various polymers. Green chemistry designs products and processes them in a manner that minimizes the use of harmful substances and thus open areas for development of sustainable polymers such as green chemistry that can eliminate the use of Bisphenol A, an important raw material, for the production of polycarbonates. Cows in India are the holy animal but due to non-degradation of synthetic polymers around 30 kg of plastics have been found in guts of cows in the country.   

Further, the major challenge for the sustainable polymers market is the physical properties such as toughness, color, melting temperature and elasticity. These physical properties are far better in existing traditional polymers with an advantage of being cost effective.
