The biodegradable packaging market was valued at USD 81.7 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 117.8 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.3% during the period 2021–2027. Bio–degradable packaging solutions are increasingly finding applications in various industries due to their low environmental impact and high demand. Bio–degradable packaging made from renewable resources reductions dependence on petroleum and reduces the amount of waste material while still yielding a product that provides similar benefits to traditional plastics. These products are usually made of renewable raw materials, such as starch and cellulose. Moreover, bio–degradable plastic can decompose into inorganic compounds, CO2, methane, and water, by the enzymatic action of microorganisms.
Besides, growth in bio–degradable production is poised to drive bio–degradable packaging adoption in various applications. Demand for biodegradable packaging is increasing currently and is expected to continue to progress as businesses are now utilizing packaging as a medium to promote their sustainability initiatives, along with their products.

Moreover, starch–based plastics are being enhanced by using starch as a bio–degradable feedstock to make other biopolymers and has successfully developed viable replacements for petroleum–based plastics. For instance, major beverage players, such as Carlsberg, are leading the way by actively supporting research into bio–degradable beverage bottle innovations. Its partnership with EcoXpak has resulted in developments regarding zero–waste material use, which aligns with its goal to create a 100% biodegradable beverage bottle made from green fiber.
Global Biodegradable Packaging Market Dynamics
Drivers: Growing Conscientious Population
Rising consumer awareness regarding the environmental effect of packaging products and a willingness to replace packaging materials with alternatives with a lower carbon footprint or made from renewable resources are the main drivers for developing and using these materials.
Increasing awareness is driving innovation in Biodegradable packaging, as federal institutions to are taking part in the innovation of Biodegradable packaging solutions. For instance, a public–private partnership between the European Commission and the bio–based Industries Consortium (BIC) has launched the FRESH project funded by the Bio–Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU).
Challenges: Growing Investments in Non–Biodegradable and Recyclable Packaging Solutions
Recyclability is expected to be the greatest challenge, as more companies that use packaging products are focusing on recyclable, reusable packaging. Compared to a 5% market share of bio–degradable packaging, the recyclable packaging segment occupied a whopping 79% market share in 2017. Moreover, recyclable packaging is expected to maintain a significant lead in the upcoming years.
Compared to a 5% market share of bio–degradable packaging, the recyclable packaging segment occupied a whopping 79% market share in 2017. Moreover, recyclable packaging is expected to maintain a significant lead in the upcoming years. Further, the agenda targets single–use plastics to eliminate them. This policy is expected to act as the greatest challenge for adopting bio–degradable packaging solutions in Europe.
