Biodegradable plastics are plant-based plastics that are produced from petroleum-based sources and renewable raw materials, such as corn, wheat, bamboo, and sugarcane. These products degrade naturally in base compounds by the action of micro-organisms. Some of the widely utilized biodegradable plastics include polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT), polybutylene succinate (PBS), polylactic acid (PLA) and starch blends.

The global market is primarily driven by the rising awareness regarding the hazardous effects of using non-biodegradable plastic products. Additionally, governments of numerous countries are undertaking initiatives to impose bans on the usage of non-biodegradable plastic products due to the rising environmental concerns among the masses. This has provided an impetus to the demand for eco-friendly alternatives, such as biodegradable plastic products, on the global level. Some of the other factors creating a positive outlook for the market include the easy product availability across both the organized and online retail platforms and the widespread popularity of biodegradable plastic packaging in the food and beverages sector.
