Key Market Dynamics 

Packaging solutions have incurred a predominant significance among every F&B company. Manufacturers of food products and beverages continue to adopt the most suitable packaging mechanism, befitting the packaging requirements of various kinds of products.

Bioplastics packaging is, thus, expected to gain prominence in the global F&B sector, primarily due to the several advantages that it endures. Obtained from biomass sources, bioplastics or biopolymers are innovative packaging materials for food materials, the demand for which is deeply integrated to consumer preferences. 

Preferences of consumers for organic/natural materials is slated to impact the growth of bioplastics packaging market. Along with this, government initiatives enacted in various countries and regions in the world promote the production of bioplastics over that of hazardous polymer and plastic materials.

Besides the consumers’ keen inclination towards eco-friendly products and favorable support from industrial regulatory bodies and governments, the growth of the global bioplastics packaging market will also be driven by the sustainability of bioplastics packaging materials compared to others. 

Enhancing the physical properties of packaging materials by making them more attractive, easily printable and antistatic has been observed to be key trend influencing the growth of global bioplastics packaging market.

Nonetheless, inclusion of chemical additives in production of bioplastics has spiked health concerns related to its toxicity. Besides the health concerns, complexity of processes for separation of bioplastics materials from disposal sites, on the basis of resin types, are also slated to restrain the market’s growth.
