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.

The global bioplastics market, although currently less than 1%, is expected to have a double digit CAGR in the near future. The global production capacity of bioplastics is expected to increase up to 6 million tonnes by 2020 from 4.16 million tonnes in 2016.

By market segments, packaging (rigid and flexible) remains the leader of application for bioplastics with almost 39% of the total bioplastics market. The segment is expected to have a significant growth till 2021.

By region, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a high growth as most of the currently planned projects are implemented in Thailand, India and China. It is expected that about 75% of bioplastics will be produced in Asia by 2020.

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:

    • Availability of feedstock
    • India, being a leader in organic farming products, has very high potential for bioplastics to play a role in packaging of these products
    • The need for certain end-use segments to project themselves as eco-friendly and for packagers to meet the requirements in the export-oriented market


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

    • Very low consumer awareness
    • Lack of recycling infrastructure
    • Lack of proper implementation and regulation of laws by the government on plastic ban

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

It is important to note that many research institutes and organizations such as IIT Madras, CIPET, IIT Delhi, IISc, etc. are working on these challenging areas in the bioplastics market to expand the sector in India.
