Biocomposites Market Set to Soar: Forecasted to Reach US$ 75.0 Billion by 2031, Driven by Eco-Friendly Demand Surge


A rise in the food and beverage industry and pharmaceutical innovations are expected to drive the market for biocomposites.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Transparency Market Research Inc. -, July 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The biocomposites market (생체복합재 시장) was valued at US$ 24.6 billion in 2022. A CAGR of 13.2% is forecast from 2023 to 2031, reaching US$ 75.0 billion during the forecast period.  A shift toward sustainable practices and environmental concerns have led to adoption of biocomposites materials. As consumers increasingly seek eco-friendly and sustainable options, companies incorporate these materials into their products.

Biocomposites, primarily made from natural or biobased materials, are gaining momentum as governments worldwide enforce strict regulations on plastics and promote sustainable alternatives. These materials address the environmental impact of non-degradable plastics while offering superior sustainability benefits. Lightweight and durable, biocomposites are increasingly used in automotive and aerospace industries, reducing carbon footprints and improving resource efficiency. They offer advantages like improved crash behavior, low splinter tendencies, and excellent sound absorption, making them suitable for construction and consumer goods. Wood fiber composites, favored for decking and railing, are growing rapidly due to their affordability and eco-friendly appeal in both residential and commercial settings.


Researchers are constantly working on improving biocomposites’ properties. Among these improvements are enhanced durability, strength, and other characteristics, resulting in a superior performance for biocomposites over traditional materials. Various industries have found use for biocomposites, including the automotive, construction, and packaging industries. Because biocomposites are versatile, they can be used to design and function products in various industries.
