Apart from construction, consumer goods should be a major end-user of biodegradable plastics in the following years. Biodegradable plastics are increasingly being used in a variety of consumer goods such as electronic devices, household appliances, and more. Electronic devices with components like circuit boards, data storage, and casings are designed using plastics, which facilitates their lightness, mobility, and durability. With the growing strictness of government regulations pertaining to traditional plastics, several consumer goods manufacturers are progressively opting for biodegradable plastics. Other key consumer goods that make use of biodegradable plastics include loudspeakers, touch screen computer casings, vacuum cleaners, and mobile casing.

Market Restraints:

Despite the host of environmental benefits, biodegradable plastics come along with a few shortcomings as well. Segregating traditional plastics from the biodegradable ones is a huge task, since there is no distinguishing factor between them. In some cases, inclusion of traditional plastics in the biodegradable ones can lead to complications during the decomposition process in landfills. This factor can emerge as a significant challenge for the top manufacturers in the ensuing years.

COVID 19 Analysis

The pandemic brought along a series of challenges for different industries including declining product demand, reduced production capacity, and financial loss. The lockdown affected several industries such as healthcare, packaging, construction, and more, which needless to say, had a debilitating impact on the biodegradable plastics industry.
