“North America – The Biggest Market of Biopolymers”

North America is the world’s largest market of biopolymers, which consumed more than
one-third of the total demand. U.S is the key consumer of biopolymers in North America.
Packaging, bottling, fibers, and automotive are the application segments driving the
demand for PLA, bio-PE, and bio-PET which in turn is pushing the demand for biopolymers
within the region. The growing concern for human health and safety in the region has also
led to increased consumption of biopolymers. The biopolymers market is also up surging due
to high penetration of material in industries like packaging and automotive which have
further helped the biopolymers market to emerge in the region. Various innovations,
developments, and expansions in different industries have in turn made the region a
potential growth market for biopolymers and its products.

“Bio-PE – The Biggest Biopolymer by Type; and Packaging – The Biggest Biopolymers

Bio-PE is manufactured through fermentation followed by polymerization. Bio-PE is
mainly consumed in applications like packaging and automotive. PHA is the fastest growing
biopolymers with a CAGR of 27.7% to 2018. The major growth driver for biopolymers is its
biodegradability which will have a high impact on the industry in future as well. The
biopolymers packaging market has a wide scope for its expansion which in turn would help
in increasing the consumption of biopolymers. Bio-PE remains the dominant biopolymer and
is expected to be the largest in the future.

Packaging is the biggest application of biopolymers and is anticipated to be worth
$1,722.7 Million by 2018.

Braskem S.A. (Brazil), NatureWorks LLC (U.S), and Indorama Ventures Public Co. Ltd.
(Thailand) are some of the major manufacturers of biopolymers.
