Green boom: Ceresana forecasts further growth for bioplastics
"Bio" is not always compostable
Two groups of materials are called bioplastics, although they are not necessarily identical: there are biodegradable plastics can be composted, as well as bio-based plastics that are made of renewable resources but are not biodegradable. Biodegradable plastics, such as polylactic acids (PLA) and polymers on the basis of cornstarch, reached a market share of 56% of the total market for bioplastics in 2018. Ceresana predicts volume growth of 7.1% per year up until 2026 for this product group. Growth regarding bio-based plastics such as polyethylene, PET, or PA made of sugar cane, which are not biodegradable, is expected to be weaker, with 5.1% per year.
Packaging is the main application
This study by Ceresana analyzes the development of bioplastic usage in various sales markets in detail. Demand is subdivided into the categories rigid and flexible packaging, consumer goods, automotive and electronics, and other applications. The most important sector for sales of bioplastics in 2018 was the packaging industry - more than 60% of bioplastics were processed to bags, sacks, and other types of packaging. However, Ceresana expects the highest percentage increase in the future for the category automotive and electronics with 8.4% per year.
Manufacturers and processors of bioplastics are facing great challenges: prices, availability, and quality need to be able to compete with fossil resources. Alternatively, they must offer added value in order to justify the price difference to consumers. Recycling and composting are an advantage for many applications. However, the existing infrastructure of disposal companies plays a decisive role in this respect: problems arise when plants are not designed to separate bioplastics or when they are unable to biodegrade them. Temperatures that are needed for quick composting of bioplastic bags are, for example, nor always reached.
The study in brief:
Chapter 1 provides a comprehensive analysis of the global market for bioplastics - including forecasts until 2026: the development of demand, revenues, and production is presented for each region. Furthermore, individual application areas for bioplastics are examined. We differentiate between the categories rigid packaging, flexible packaging (bags and sacks), other flexible packaging, consumer goods, automotive and electronics, and other applications.
Chapter 2 examines the eight most important countries for sales of bioplastics separately: Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, USA, China, and Japan. Demand and revenues, demand within individual application areas, demand per product type (PLA, starch-based, other biodegradable plastics, non-biodegradable plastics made of renewable resources) are presented.
Chapter 3 provides useful company profiles of the most important manufacturers of bioplastics, clearly arranged according to contact information, revenues, profits, product range, production sites, and profile summary. In-depth profiles of 75 manufacturers are listed.
