Growth Factors

Increasing government support for the use of bio-degradable plastics in various fields including packaging and coatings is a major factor that drives the growth of global biopolymer coatings market. For instance, in May 2021, Danimer Scientific, a leading manufacturer and developer of biodegradable materials announced that it has received a research grant for continuing its research on pennycress oil that is a potential feedstock material used for the production of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), an eco-friendly alternative for traditional plastics. Further, impending government regulation in against the manufacturing of single-use plastics in China has compelled plastic manufacturers to ramp-up their biodegradable plastic production.

In addition, increasing global awareness for environment pollution and use of biodegradable products also propel the demand for biopolymer coatings market. With the rising level of concern regarding environment degradation, the use for biodegradable products and biopolymer coatings are estimated to flourish at a significant pace during the forecast timeframe. This also triggers the rate of research & development in the field of biopolymer coatings and bioplastics. For instance, in November 2020, Eagle Beverage and Danimer Scientific announced a partnership agreement for manufacturing a biodegradable drinking straw. Similarly, in March 2017, DuPont announced its agreement with FMC Corporation to deprive its crop protection business in order to acquire Health & Nutrition business of FMC Corp. that helped the company to grow its coatings market and related business.

Apart from notable developments in the bioplastics and biopolymer coatings, the market is still at its emerging phase and has a promising future growth opportunity. In order to curb the environment pollution load, governments and plastic manufacturing companies are collaborating or partnering to move the future towards more renewable and greener environment. Henceforth, the aforementioned factors are likely to support the market growth of biopolymer coatings market remarkably in the upcoming years.
