“North America: The Biggest Market of Biodegradable Plastics”

The North America region is the world’s largest market for biodegradable plastics in 2013. The U.S. is the key consumer of biodegradable plastics in North America. Rising environmental concerns coupled with waste management issues have shifted consumer focus towards sustainable and environment-friendly plastics, especially for packaging. This has resulted in a push towards biodegradable plastics from regulatory bodies such as the EPA (Environment Protection Agency). Various product launches, developments, and expansions in different industries have in turn made the region a potential growth market for biodegradable plastics.

“PHA-The Fastest-growing Type; while Packaging–The Biggest Biodegradable Plastics Application”

Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is aliphatic polyester produced via fermentation of carbon substrate within a microorganism. Polyhydroxyalkanoate is the fastest-growing biodegradable plastic driven by its high use in tissue engineering, wound healing, and drug delivery. The packaging market for biodegradable plastics has a wide scope for its expansion, which in turn would help in increasing the consumption for biodegradable plastics. Packaging is the biggest application of biodegradable plastics and is projected to be worth $2,007.94 million by 2019.
