Europe Biodegradable Plastics Market to be dominated by utilization of biodegradable plastics in textile industry through 2028

Initiatives taken by government regarding biodegradable plastics are the major drivers for the Europe Biodegradable Plastics Market.

 According to TechSci Research report, “Europe Biodegradable plastics Market –Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028”, the Europe Biodegradable Plastics Market is anticipated to register a high CAGR during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to collaborations and partnerships among leading companies with a diverse approach to merge the expertise of individual companies and to strengthen their position in the market.

Biodegradable plastics, also referred to as bioplastics, are derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, sugarcane, and potato starch. These materials naturally decompose, effectively mitigating the long-lasting environmental impact associated with traditional synthetic textiles. The textile industry is facing pressure to transition towards eco-friendly materials that align with consumer values, making biodegradable plastics an appealing alternative. Europe's rigorous environmental regulations have paved the way for the adoption of biodegradable materials. Policies that promote circular economy practices and reduce plastic waste have incentivized the textile industry to seek alternatives to conventional materials. The collaboration between textile researchers and bioplastic manufacturers has resulted in the development of biodegradable fabrics with desirable properties. Innovations range from biodegradable fibers to textiles that can be composted after their useful lifespan.

The textile industry generates significant waste during production and post-consumer use. Biodegradable textiles contribute to waste reduction as they naturally break down and do not accumulate in the environment. Europe is at the forefront of integrating biodegradable plastics into the textile industry. Initiatives such as the European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy and collaborations between bioplastic manufacturers and fashion brands are driving innovation and raising awareness. European governments have recognized the urgent imperative to address plastic pollution and have taken proactive measures to incentivize the adoption of biodegradable plastics. Several European countries and the European Union (EU) have implemented or proposed bans on single-use plastics such as straws, cutlery, and stirrers. By fostering a market demand for biodegradable alternatives, these bans stimulate innovation and growth in the biodegradable plastics sector. Governments have introduced eco-labeling programs and certification standards for biodegradable plastics, providing consumers with accurate information about the environmental benefits of such products and fostering their acceptance in the market. As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission has announced plans to propose new legislation on packaging, packaging waste, and bioplastics. These proposals aim to enhance the regulation and management of biodegradable plastics and promote their responsible use. The evolution of Europe's biodegradable plastics market is heavily influenced by the power of collaborations and partnerships. Successful partnerships span the entire supply chain, from raw material suppliers to manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Cooperation ensures a seamless flow of biodegradable materials, encourages adoption, and enhances the overall market dynamics.

One recent collaboration in the realm of biodegradable plastics in Europe involves TotalEnergies Corbion. They have announced that their Luminy Polylactic Acid (PLA) bioplastics have successfully met the stringent criteria of EU regulations. This collaboration aims to develop and promote bioplastics that comply with European standards. Another notable partnership involves Borealis and Ecopost, who are working together to scale up the collection and recycling of Kenyan plastic waste, including biodegradable plastics. The primary objective of this partnership is to advance the recovery and recycling of biodegradable plastics, thereby contributing to a more sustainable approach to plastic waste management.

However, limited infrastructure for composting and recycling along with lack in availability of biodegradable plastics are expected to slow down the growth of the market in the coming years.
