Westford, USA, April 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SkyQuest projects that the starch based bioplastics market will attain a value of USD 11.12 million by 2030, with a CAGR of 15% over the forecast period (2022-2030). The global industry has been expanding steadily due to rising consumer demand for biodegradable and environment friendly packaging materials with a growing emphasis on sustainable development, and minimizing plastic waste. Numerous individuals and businesses are searching for more environment friendly substitutes for conventional plastics as environmental uncertainties about plastic pollution and its effects on the environment. Several countries are enacting laws and policies to promote compostable and biodegradable materials, such as bioplastics based on starch. The production of starch based bioplastics is becoming more straightforward and affordable due to improvements in bioplastic manufacturing techniques, which are spurring the demand factors. There is an increasing need for biodegradable packaging materials, such as starch based bioplastics, as more businesses emphasis sustainability and minimize their environmental impact.

According to the SkyQuest, the use of biodegradable and compostable materials is strongly encouraged by government rules and policies, which also help create a regulatory environment favourable to the bioplastics industry. These factors are the significant drivers of global market for starch based bioplastics. The growing concern over plastic waste and its environmental effects is a crucial driver of government legislations and policies relating to bioplastics. Numerous countries are implementing policies to lessen plastic waste and encourage biodegradable and compostable products as sustainable alternatives. One such example is the ambitious goals the European Union has set to decrease plastic waste and boost the use of sustainable materials, including a target to ensure that all plastic packaging in the EU is recyclable or reused by 2030.
