Every year, around 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the oceans. The marine animals are harmed either by mechanical effects, such as entanglement in plastic objects, or through exposure to chemicals leached out of plastics that interfere with their physiology. Improper disposal of plastic wastes leads to a harmful effect on the surrounding environment. On burning, plastic waste emits hazardous gasses and high levels of VOCs in the air, while landfills hold them indefinitely as it cannot be decomposed naturally. Therefore, to reduce the production and use of plastics, the government in various countries have taken initiatives to ban the use of single-use plastics. For instance, Kenya banned the use of plastic bags from August 2017. As per the law, anyone found using, producing, or selling a plastic bag faces up to four years of imprisonment or is imposed a fine of US$ 38,000. In January 2018, the UK government announced a 25-year plan to “set the global gold standard” on eliminating plastic waste. In February, Taiwan announced a ban on plastic, restricting the use of single-use plastic bags, straws, utensils, and cups. In 2016, France announced a total ban on plastic cups, plates, and cutlery. Biodegradable plastic is used as an effective alternative to conventional single-use plastics. These plastics deliver similar technical characteristics and functionalities as that of conventional plastics, along with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Rising government initiatives to ban conventional plastics and related products is projected to escalate the biodegradable plastic market at a CAGR of 14.5%

The packaging industry has been witnessing a significant shift of consumer preference toward sustainable packaging and increased use of biodegradable plastics to replace fossil-fuel-based plastics. Sustainable packaging is also known as green packaging that uses materials and manufacturing methods for the packaging of goods that has a low impact on both energy consumption and the environment. Currently, conventional plastic packaging is extensively used in a range of applications, such as FMCG, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods. This increased use of plastic in various applications is responsible for the rise in plastic pollution. Therefore, reuse and recycling of plastic and plastic products are becoming foremost important for innovation and sustainability. Furthermore, conventional plastic is expected to become more expensive in the future with diminishing raw material sources. These factors provide a huge market potential for the biodegradable plastic market players during the forecast period.
