Global Biopolymer Films Market to value over USD 10 billion by 2029 end and register a CAGR of over 7% from 2019 to 2029.

The biopolymers film market is principally motivated by the flourishing food and beverage industry, especially in developed nations. Advancements along with escalating food packaging demand for extended preservation has substantially propelled the overall biopolymer films market size over the forecast time spell. Biopolymers are derived naturally from organic sources such as plant proteins and starch and are easily degradable by the action of micro-organisms when exposed to moisture and heat. Bio-based plastics and biopolymers have been widely used due to their ability to replace oil-based packaging materials with bio-based films & containers, that might give not only a competitive advantage due to the more sustainable and greener effect, but also some improved technical properties.

The growing focus towards sustainable development, implementation of strict environmental regulations to reduce carbon content, fluctuating fuel prices and limited availability of petroleum resources is expected to create lucrative opportunities for bio-based plastics and polymers in the coming years. High production cost in contrast to synthetic films is one of the major pitfalls faced by the biopolymer films market. Relatively low vapor barrier and mechanical properties of the product will likely affect industry growth. However, technological advancements such as atomic layer deposition and multilayer films have introduced the optimistic growth of products with promising characteristics. The aforementioned trends along with an increased focus on sustainable packaging by brand owners and retail companies will drive the market demand for biopolymer packaging, thus creating new industry growth prospects for biopolymer films over the projected timeframe.

Market Segmentation:

1. By Raw Material

●     Bio-based

●     Microbial synthesized

●     Synthetic 

●     Partially bio-based

Bio-based will hold the maximum market share. Prolific availability of these resources such as chitosan, pectin, cellulose, protein, and starch will augment the global biopolymer films market share over the estimated timespan. Microbial synthesized biopolymer films will experience promising gains. Superior barrier and mechanical properties provided by these raw materials-based films is the major factor propelling industry growth in this segment. Microbial synthesized are obtained generally by structural, intracellular and extracellular microorganism synthesis.

2. By Technology

●     Sol-gel

●     Atomic layer deposition (ALD)

●     Multilayer 

3. By Product

●     Polylactic acid (PLA) film 

●     Mulch films (starch blends)

●     Cellophane

●     Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) films

●     Polyamide films

●     Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) films 

●     Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films 

●     Others 

4. By End-user

●     Food & beverage

●     Medical & pharmaceutical

●     Home & personal care

●     Agriculture 

●     Others 

5. By Region

●     North America

●     Europe 

●     Asia Pacific

●     Latin America 

●     Rest of the World

North America led by the U.S. biopolymer film market size accounted for major market share. The regional growth is mainly attributed to robust product demand for food packaging applications. The prevalence of strict norms formulated by the FDA in the U.S. for food packaging applications will substantially boost the regional industry size by 2025.

Asia Pacific region is a key contributor and is forecast to observe maximum gains during the forecast period. The region will witness significant growth opportunities particularly due to increasing product demand for food and medical applications. Increasing consumer spending patterns towards food, beverage, and cosmetics will further complement regional growth over the estimated timeframe.
