India Bioplastics Summit 2017

The First Ever Conference + Networking Platform in India Exclusively for Bioplastics

A 2 day conference & networking that provides the audience updates, insights and perspectives on the current and emerging opportunities in bioplastics, and how entrepreneurs can benefit from these.

Bioplastics – A Great Business Opportunity

As of 2016, the plastic industry is worth $ 482 billion and the global production of plastics stood at 299 million tonnes. With the Plastics market growing, its disadvantages in sustainability and compostability are coming to light.

Bioplastics, with their low carbon footprint and their ability to degrade back to CO2 and water, are increasingly being recognized as valid substitutes for conventional plastics. The global bioplastics production capacity was 4.16 million tonnes as of 2016, which is just 1.7% of the global plastics market. This presents a huge business opportunity for entrepreneurs and businesses planning to enter the Bioplastics market.

Indian Bioplastics Market

The Indian bioplastics market is in its nascent stages with very few domestic players prevalent in the country. While half of their production caters to local demand, the rest of it is exported.

It is expected that the industry could expand in the coming years as most of the currently planned projects are being implemented in Thailand, India and China. It is presumed that about 75% of bioplastics will be produced in Asia by 2020.


It should be noted that the bioplastics market in India could explode in the coming years owing to the drivers listed below:


Some of the challenges hindering the growth of Indian bioplastics market include

Steps should be taken to meet these challenges and expand the bioplastics market in India.
