"North America - The Biggest Market of
North America is the world's largest market of biopolymers, which consumed
more than one-third of the total demand. U.S is the key consumer of
biopolymers in North America. Packaging, bottling, fibers, and automotive are
the application segments driving the demand for PLA, bio-PE, and bio-PET which
in turn is pushing the demand for biopolymers within the region. The growing
concern for human health and safety in the region has also led to increased
consumption of biopolymers. The biopolymers market is also up surging due to
high penetration of material in industries like packaging and automotive which
have further helped the biopolymers market to emerge in the region. Various
innovations, developments, and expansions in different industries have in turn
made the region a potential growth market for biopolymers and its products.
"Bio-PE - The Biggest Biopolymer by Type; and
Packaging - The Biggest Biopolymers Application"
Bio-PE is manufactured through fermentation followed by polymerization. Bio-PE
is mainly consumed in applications like packaging and automotive. PHA is the
fastest growing biopolymers with a CAGR of 27.7% to 2018. The major growth
driver for biopolymers is its biodegradability which will have a high impact
on the industry in future as well. The biopolymers packaging market has a wide
scope for its expansion which in turn would help in increasing the consumption
of biopolymers. Bio-PE remains the dominant biopolymer and is expected to be
the largest in the future.
Packaging is the biggest application of biopolymers and is anticipated to be
worth $1,722.7 Million by 2018.
