Bioplastics are products which are obtained from renewable biomass sources, these generally includes food waste, corn starch, woodchips, vegetable fats and oils and others. These products may either be derived from agricultural by-products or other sources like pre-used containers or plastic bottles, by usage of microorganisms. On the other hand, biopolymers are obtained from living organisms; hence they are also known as polymeric biomolecules. These biopolymers consist of multiple units of monomers which are bonded together covalently, to form a single large unit. Both bioplastics and biopolymers are used in replacement to plastics, i.e. polyethylene or polystyrene based products.

Bioplastics and biopolymers industry can be broadly classified into two distinct types depending on the natural decomposition mechanism, i.e. either biodegradable or non-biodegradable. Whereas, the various industries utilizing these products are- packaging, textiles, agriculture & horticulture, consumer goods, automotive & transportation and others. 

Increasing global demand of the packaging industry has directly contributed to the demand for plastics as a material for packaging. However, extensive threat to the environment resulting from the use of plastic has been a rising concern. The adoption of bioplastics and biodegradable packaging material has seen a substantial growth, owing to the importance of maintenance of ecological balance. Further, favorable rules and regulations by the governmental bodies have played a crucial role in propelling the growth of this market. However, high prices of bioplastics and biopolymers are expected to be a major limitation in the prosperous growth of the market.

Few key players associated with the Bioplastics and biopolymers industry are- Natureworks, Braskem, BASF SE, Novamont, Total Corbion PLA, Biome Bioplastics, Bio-On, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Toray Industries, Plantic Technologies and others.

The initial establishment of the industry was set up on the basis of innovation; this has also been the key factor contributing to its growth in recent times. Increased investment in R&D sector has been a major focusing point by major market players. In December 2017, Natureworks introduced there latest product Ingeo, an advanced plastic obtained from renewable resources. Various factors like enhanced flexibility, better barrier protection, heat resistance, amended strengths and other features is expected to increase the demand of such products, further.
