Polymers are compounds that are formed through chemical reactions and have high molar mass. Degradation is a process in which the products undergo a physical and chemical transformation that also results in a change of physical and mechanical properties. Biodegradation polymers generally breakdown into natural byproducts with the help of naturally occurring microbes such as algae, bacteria, and fungi. Biodegradable polymers are eco-friendly, non-toxic, and do not cause any kind of harm to the environment or other living things. Due to its non-toxic properties, its degradation can be controlled and it is capable to maintain its integrity until it is completely degraded.

Rising emissions due to the dumping of petroleum products have raised concerns for the protection of the environment and natural resources and the use of biodegradable products is driving the demand for biodegradable polymers. In addition, biodegradable polymers are triggering the demand due to sustainable development policies, and government initiatives to concentrate on the use of eco-friendly polymers which is bolstering the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing price of raw materials used in the manufacture of petroleum products helps to increase demand. Conversely, restricted uses of biodegradable polymers, high production costs, and inconsistencies in the final product are obstacles to the market. Nonetheless, raw materials for the manufacture of biodegradable polymers are cost-effective and end-users of biodegradable polymers are on the rise.

The major key players in the biodegradable polymer market are as follows:

  • Cortec group
  • Mitsui Chemicals
  • BASF
  • BIOTEC GmbH& Co
  • Cereplast
  • MetabolixInc
  • FP International
  • Others
