COVID-19 Impact Analysis: Bioplastics Market Faces a Downtrend in 2020, as COVID-19 Crisis Delays Green Investments – Future Market Insights

Demand for bioplastics is set to move on an upward swing as conventional plastics emerge as tough waste problem. However, COVID-19 will take a toll on the revenue growth.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / Bioplastics are gaining significant momentum as a solution to the global plastic phenomenon. Strong focus on sustainability along with aversion of consumers towards products with high environmental impact has led to popularization of bioplastics in a wide range of industries. The packaging industry, in particular, which is heavily reliant on conventional plastic for its convenience factor, is turning to bio alternatives to fulfill the demand of eco-conscious consumers. The result is expected to lead to increased demand for bioplastics.

According to a detailed study by Future Market Insights, the bioplastics market is estimated to be valued at US$ 43.8 Bn in 2020, nearly 6X surge from the past half decade. Technological advancements involved in the research and development of bioplastics will further remain instrumental to the market growth.

The ubiquity of non-biodegradable plastics in oceans and landfills has shown the urgent need for an effective alternative. While compostable and biodegradable raw materials are making headway in packaging industry, bioplastics are set to push the weight reduction trend in automotive industry,” says the FMI analyst.

Bioplastics Market – Key Restraints

  • Despite its ‘eco-friendly’ tag and benefits over oil-based plastics, bioplastics still tend be relatively expensive.
  • Bioplastics are produced in small quantities, making it a challenge to break into established production cycles of their conventional counterparts.

Impact of COVID-19 on Bioplastics Market

Confinement measures triggered by the rapid spread of the COVID-19 have significant impacted the business sphere worldwide, and the bioplastics market is no exception. A notable decline in crude oil prices will be a linear disadvantage for bioplastics, further affected by the higher price point. Post pandemic, green investments are highly likely to be delayed due to a climate of uncertainty created by the crisis. A headwind coming from closure of factories and halt in manufacturing and supply chain operations will become deterrent to the market growth.
