With the gradual environmental protection of the packaging market, the demand for new materials increases

[China Packaging News] the enhancement of public awareness of environmental protection has greatly increased the acceptance and growth rate of bioplastics in the global packaging field. According to some data, driven by the renewable and degradable trend, the demand for degradable plastics in the global packaging market will reach 9.45 million tons in 2023, with an average annual compound growth rate of 33%

It is understood that the global consumption of polymeric materials has exceeded US $650billion in 2013, of which the market share of North America and Europe is less than 25% respectively, while the market share of Asia (including Japan) has reached about 40%; The market share of other regions is 13%. By 2023, the demand for biopolymers in Asia will reach 34% of the total global demand, while the share of Europe and North America in the global biopolymer market will decline

with renewable materials gradually becoming important raw materials and energy, bioplastics are being favored by more and more packaging professionals. Biological conversion plants will also increase investment in technology and production of "chemical raw materials", some of which will be processed into degradable polymeric materials. Increasing energy costs and a new understanding of the concept of environmental sustainable development will lay the foundation for the success of bioplastics in the market

biopolymers are mostly used in packaging, food services and other fields, mainly for packaging products that are intended to be used once or sent to landfills or washed into the sea. In this way, biodegradability has become the first factor that human impact testers consider when choosing packaging materials

bioplastics have not been widely sold and returned for many years because the price of bioplastics is higher than that of ordinary materials. However, we cannot save costs at the expense of the environment. As a sustainable and renewable raw material, biological products have established a firm foothold in the market, and it is bound to be more widely used in the future
