Interesting Research Report on the Future of Synthetic and Bio-Based Biodegradable Plastics Market


In its market research report published recently, Transparency Market Research, a U.S. – based market intelligence firm states that the global synthetic and bio-based biodegradable plastics market will report a CAGR of 19.5% from 2011 to 2018. The report, titled ‘Synthetic and Bio-Based Biodegradable Plastics Market- Global Industry Analysis, Size, Applications, Share, Growth And Forecast, 2011 – 2018,’ is now available for sale on the company’s website.

This market research report has explained that the global synthetic and bio-based biodegradable plastics is fueled by rising demand for environment friendly materials from various industries like packaging, electronics, agriculture, automotive, and transportation. The packaging industry is witnessing a shift of focus towards green and eco-friendly packaging, which is driven by greater consumer awareness about green products and their subsequent benefits. Hence, much of the demand in the bio-based biodegradable plastics market comes from the packaging industry. Materials that get decomposed naturally by microorganisms are known as biodegradable materials.

According to this research report, the global synthetic and bio-based biodegradable plastics market involves biodegradable plastics which include a range of products which can be biodegradable, bio-based, and sometimes even both. Biodegradable plastics are very different from non-biodegradable plastics in terms of applications, inputs used, and the type of processing technology used. The two main factors that distinguish biodegradable plastics from the traditional plastics are availability, and renewability. The global synthetic and bio-based biodegradable plastics market is also driven by other factors like the widespread acceptance of biodegradable products by consumers, and ample supply of cheap feedstock.
