Starch-Based Plastics Market Current And Future Trends, Demand And Business Strategies, Leading Key Players And Forecast 2027
Starch-Based Plastics Market Research Report: Information By Type (Thermoplastic Starch and Starch Polymer Blends),

Market Overview

Global Starch-Based Plastics Market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.2% to reach around USD 2,353 Million by the end of 2027. Starch-based plastics are rigid blends of starch with biodegradable or compostable plastics such as polylactic acid, polybutylene adipate terephthalate, polybutylene succinate, polycaprolactone, and polyhydroxyalkanoates. They inhabit many properties such as excellent water resistance and processing and mechanical properties. Also, they can accommodate a vast range of physical properties such as tensile strength and heat tolerance. Hence, it is mainly used as an alternative to traditional plastics. Few end-use applications of starch-based plastics include automotive and transportation, agriculture, packaging, and consumer goods.


Type, End-Use, and Region have segmented the global Starch-Based Plastics Market.

The global starch-based plastics market has been divided into thermoplastic starch and starch polymer blends. The thermoplastic starch segment holds the largest market share of over 50% and is expected to register a CAGR of around 9% between 2020-2027. The growth is featured in its processability, similar to the thermoplastics with shear and temperature. Furthermore, the starch polymer blends segment is expected to witness the fastest growth of around 9.5% to reach over USD 1,500 million by 2027. Depending on end-use, the starch-based plastics market is segmented into automotive & transportation, agriculture, packaging, consumer goods, etc. The packaging segment is anticipated to account for around 60% of the global market and is expected to register a CAGR of around 9.5% from 2020 to 2027. Furthermore, it is the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period due to widespread usage in the food packaging industry in the production of bottles, carrier bags, disposable foam dishes and trays, cups, and biodegradable films.
