Awareness of Environment Health and the Need to Curb Plastic Pollution to Offer Potential Growth Opportunities for Oxo-Biodegradable Plastics

Since the last few years, plastic has been a vital component in the packaging industry. A higher percentage of various types of plastics are being used for packaging, and are also being discarded after use. Most of the plastic ends up in landfills where they take several years to degrade. This has created a huge concern for environment health and little has been done to eradicate the issue. As complete elimination of plastic is not possible, manufacturers have been promoting use of biodegradable packaging solutions, such as oxo-biodegradable plastic products. This has triggered the adoption of oxo-biodegradable plastic packaging solutions and is expected to drive the growth of the global market. 

Supportive Government Regulations Regarding the Use of Oxo-Biodegradable Plastics to Drive Increased Adoption

Although oxo-biodegradable plastic packaging is going through a phase of instability in the west, which might prove to be a critical restraining factor in the coming decade, it is viewed as a key solution to curb the land and marine pollution problems. Many countries actively encourage oxo-biodegradable plastic packaging. For example, governments of various countries in Middle and Africa have made a mandate that the country will use only oxo-biodegradable plastics for packaging.
