Global Biopolymer Films Market: Introduction
Biopolymer films are biodegradable and compostable materials that have packaging applications. They are manufactured from renewable raw materials such as cellulose, starch, polylactic acid (PLA), chitosan, and proteins.
Global Biopolymer Films Market: Dynamics
A major factor driving growth of the global biopolymer films market during the forecast period is increasing demand for biopolymers in food & beverage and agriculture industries. Stringent regulations regarding use of synthetic and semi-synthetic films, coupled with rising initiatives to promote adoption of biopolymer films, especially in food packaging and related applications, is expected to drive growth of the market. Biopolymer films help in protecting food from exposure to the environment, and also to maintain quality of food products. Moreover, negative environmental impact of non-biodegradable films has influenced various governments to launch initiatives to promote the use of biopolymer films for packaging applications.
Biopolymer films are used in agriculture and horticulture, and are known as mulch films. For such applications, they are used to modify soil temperature, limit weed growth, prevent moisture loss, and improve crop yield as well as precocity in order to prevent loss of humus.
Biopolymers are polymers derived from renewable sources such as plant and animal, and are eco-friendly. Moreover, the raw materials required for production of biopolymer films are easily available. Biopolymers films are biodegradable and degrade easily when exposed to heat, moisture, and microbial actions, and hence leave no traces of residual in the implantation. Moreover, they emit low carbon footprint in the atmosphere. These advantages and features of biopolymers are expected to support revenue growth of the target market over the forecast period.
However, cost of biopolymer films is comparatively higher than that of synthetic and semi-synthetic films, which is one of the major factors that could affect the adoption rate, thereby restraining growth of the global biopolymer films market to a certain extent.
Development of innovative products such as Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF), which is a new polymer is similar to PET, but is 100% bio-based. Features of PEF include superior barrier and thermal properties. In addition, PEF polymer films can be used for packaging of food, beverages, and non-food products as it is entirely made from vegetable raw materials and is 100% recyclable. In addition, it has greater level of impermeability to carbon dioxide and oxygen, resulting in longer shelf life. These technological advancements can create lucrative growth opportunities for key players in the global biopolymer films market.
Favorable environmental regulations the EPA and FDA towards usage of ecofriendly films across food packaging, medical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic for packaging applications. In addition, rising adoption of bio-based polymers such as Polytrimethylene Terephthalate (PTMT), Thermoplastic Starch (TPS), Polylactic Acid (PLA), and Polyhydroxyalkonoates (PHA) are among other trends in the market currently
