Pune, India, June 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The North America and Europe bioplastics market size is projected to reach USD 11,321.8 million by 2028. The implementation of strict government norms in these regions to reduce the use of plastics has compelled producers to shift rapidly towards the development of bio-based plastics for numerous applications. In September 2020, for instance, NatureWorks announced its plan to enhance the efficiency of lactide monomer purification in Blair, Nebraska. It will help the company to surge the production of Ingeo™ (PLA) biomaterials portfolio by 10%. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a new study, titled, “North America and Europe Bioplastics Market, 2021-2028.” As per the study, the market stood at USD 5,178.9 million in 2020 and is expected to show a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period between 2021-2028.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Reduction in Manufacturing and Lack of Manpower to Obstruct Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the transportation and production of bioplastics in North America and Europe owing to supply chain disruptions. The unavailability of material and lack of manpower have also enforced manufacturers to reduce manufacturing activities. These factors are expected to hamper the North America and Europe bioplastics industry. Our research reports will provide a clear picture of the current market scenario.

Drivers & Restraints:

Increasing Demand from Electronics and Automotive Component Industries to Aid Growth

Bioplastics are extensively used in the packaging industry because of their ability to provide similar properties to conventional plastics. Also, the high demand from a wide range of industries, such as consumer goods, foods, electronics, and automotive components would propel the North America and Europe bioplastics market growth in the forthcoming years. However, separate disposable streams are required to eliminate bioplastics from the environment smoothly. Lack of these may hinder this industry.

Regional Insights:

Expansion of Automotive Industry to Help Europe Dominate in Upcoming Years

Geographically, Europe stood at USD 3,460.8 million in 2020 in terms of revenue. It is expected to remain at the forefront because of the expansion of the automotive industry. Coupled with this, the surging usage of bio-based packaging products and investments in R&D activities would accelerate growth. In North America, Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. are anticipated to majorly contribute to growth backed by the high demand for food and retail packaging.
