    Regions/ Countries

The “Worldwide Bioplastics Market” is segmented by types, applications industries, and regions. The study covers all the plastics derived from biological sources rather than petroleum covering major application industries such as packaging, agriculture, construction, automotive, electronics & consumer durables, and textiles. The major polymers covered in the study are segmented into Biodegradable Polymers (polylactic acid, polyhydroxyalkanoates, polyesters, and starch blends) and Non-Biodegradable Polymers (polyethylene, polyamide, and polyethylene terephthalate).

The study ensures 360° view, bringing out the complete key insights of the industry. The Worldwide Bioplastics Market report aims to provide an opportunity for players to understand the latest consumer trends, current market scenario, government initiative, and technologies related to the market. The consumers can benefit from an in-depth understanding of the supply perspective, market competition, and sales channels analysis in order to strategize their procurement processes. In addition, study helps the venture capitalist in understanding the companies better and take informed decisions.

According to Infoholic Research, the “Worldwide Bioplastics” market will witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2016–2022. Globally, a very small yet significant portion of the plastic production is derived from biological substances. Even commoditized chemicals such as ethylene and propylene are also being derived from biological sources and are being produced commercially. Strong government support, fluctuating petroleum prices, and increasing innovation have paved path for exponential investments growth in bioplastics which resulted in the development of many working and upcoming plants across the globe. Although financially viable production from biological source remains a challenge for some of the technical plastics; continuous innovations and technological breakthroughs are expected to change the scenario in the near future. Geographically, North America is expected to hold the majority of the share and revenue contribution while Asia Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) are expected to expand the market in the upcoming years. Some of the players included in the report are Arkema, BASF, Cargill, Dow Plastics, DuPont, DSM, and Eastman.
