In the United Kingdom, Future Market Insights states in its latest report that the global bio-based biodegradable plastics market is expected to demonstrate a double-digit CAGR during forecast period 2014-2020. In terms of application, the packaging sector accounts for the largest share of the global bio-based biodegradable plastics market and is largely driven by Europe. Other key application sectors include fibres, agriculture and medical.

Essien Jae, Lead Consultant at FMI said in their press release, “Consumption of bio-based biodegradable plastics is substantially low compared to fossil fuel-based plastics, but this is expected to grow rapidly over the next five years. By 2020, the total revenue of the global bio-based biodegradable plastics market is expected to grow two and half times as compared to 2014”.

Europe leads the global bio-based biodegradable plastics market, followed by North America. The two major markets contributed approximately 70% to the global bio-based biodegradable plastics market revenue in 2014. The European bio-based biodegradable plastics market is relatively mature due to early adoption of these materials compared to other regions.
