Global Natural Biopolymers Market Report 2021-2031: Current Market Conditions, Players, End User Markets, Trends and Future Outlook

Dublin, Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Natural Biopolymers: PHA, Polysaccharides, Protein, Algal & Fungal, Mycelium and Chitosan" report has been added to's offering.

The market for biopolymers extracted from agro-food wastes, biomass such as polysaccharides, proteins and lipids, as well as those produced by yeast biomass, algae or by bacterial fermentation, have attracted a significant amount of research and industrial interest over the last few years.

Applications have been developed for food packaging, agricultural films, membranes, sustainable clothes etc. and will continue to grow with continued government and industry push for sustainable plastics.

Biopolymers or natural polymers are naturally occurring polymers formed by plants, animals, and microorganisms.

In this group naturally occurring and chemically modified polymers are included, such as cellulose, chitin, gelatin, vegetal proteins, ?-glucan, dextrane, and kefiran. Biopolymers are directly used as obtained from their sources and are biodegradable; they are also referred to as natural polymers.
