About This Report


Global demand for biodegradable and bio-based plastics will more than triple through 2015. While excellent growth is forecast for biodegradable plastics such as starch-based resins and PLA, bio-based polyethylene will be the primary driver of demand. Western Europe will remain the largest outlet for bioplastics.This study analyzes the 300,000 metric ton world bioplastic industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., starch-based resins, polylactic acid, polyester bioplastics, PHAs, bio-based polyethylene, bio-based polyamides), market (e.g., containers, packaging film, loose-fill, nonpackaging bags, foodservice disposables, agriculture, automotive and electronics), world region and for 16 major countries.The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including NatureWorks, Novamont and Innovia Films.
