LONDON, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the plastic alternative packaging market, companies in the plastic alternative packaging market are focusing on increasing investment in environment-friendly Bioplastics. Bioplastics are prepared from biodegradable, renewable resources such as starch, proteins, and polylactic acid (PLA). The number of available products and suppliers has exploded in recent years, and bioplastics are being used in commercial markets across the globe. For example, in January 2022, Vikas Ecotech Limited plans to invest in the environment-friendly Bioplastics (PHA) technology and is in the advanced stage of finalizing a Technology Tie-Up/Joint Venture with Aurapha Private Ltd. (the “AuraPHA”) to produce biodegradable plastics.

Government initiatives for the development of bioplastics are expected to drive the plastic alternative packaging market in the forecast period. Governments worldwide are focusing on the development of the bioplastics industry due to its sustainable nature. For example, the Indian government has announced a ban on single-use plastic to reduce plastic pollution, which will be effective from July 1st, 2022. Similarly, the UK government is also committed to preventing all avoidable plastic waste by the end of 2042 by banning microbeads in rinse-off personal care products, which helps in reducing the number of plastic bags being used and restricting the supply of single-use plastic straws, stirrers, and cotton buds. Bioplastic-focused companies have also received frequent funding from government institutions keen to promote the use of more environmentally friendly plastics. These initiatives are expected to continue in the forecast period, thus supporting the growth of the market.
