Smithers Pira's new report ‘The Future of Bioplastics for Packaging to 2022’ finds that global bioplastics consumption will reach 1.06 million tonnes in 2017, with a market value of $3.4 billion. Bioplastics for packaging markets currently represent a less than 1% of global plastic packaging sales. However bioplastic packaging is forecast to grow at a significantly higher rate than petro-based polymers during the five-year period to 2022.

Europe is the largest regional market for bioplastic packaging with close to one third of world consumption in 2017. North America trails Europe in terms of bioplastic packaging consumption, but government and consumer attitudes are changing. North America and Asia are forecast to show higher growth rates than Europe for bioplastic packaging over the forecast period.

Non-food is the largest area of application for bioplastic packaging demand in 2017, accounting for almost 50% of global consumption. Bioplastic beverage bottle consumption has grown dramatically since 2012, following the introduction of bio-derived PET for soft drinks.
