The industry expansion is further being impelled by the rising focus of industry players towards the adoption of strategic moves such as acquisitions, mergers, and partnerships for the development of various bio-based adhesives.

For instance, in August 2021, Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical and U.S. agribusiness Cargill Inc announced its plans of the development of a biopolymer production unit worth $600 million in Thailand. The plant will be constructed through NatureWorks and will help cater to the escalating demand for sustainable materials.

Shifting consumer preference towards cost-effective and eco-friendly packaging materials

The industry is witnessing a shift in consumer preference towards cost-effective and eco-friendly materials in the packaging sector. The products are procured alone or in combination from polysaccharides, proteins, and lipids.

Materials including pigments, antimicrobial agents, and antioxidants are added through the process of production for the improvement of product properties.

Favorable government policies in Europe

Europe is characterized by favorable government support towards naturally-derived products in the food & beverage industry across diverse economies including Germany, UK, and France. Say for instance, the European Commission had introduced the Horizon Strategy 2020 in lieu to promote industrial development of naturally derived and ecofriendly ingredients,

Owing to these aspects, Europe biopolymer coatings market size should record gains of nearly 6% through the forecast period.

Furthermore, the market share from natural wax based products in Germany is expected to register around 3% gains through 2024. The materials are utilized as edible coatings for a range of vegetables and fruits for keeping them healthy and fresh for longer period.

China: a potential hotspot for APAC biopolymer coatings market

In the Asia Pacific region, China soy protein coatings market is expected to register more than 4% gains through 2024. The materials are used in the general packaging industry and the food & beverages sector owing to the extending product shelf life and increasing resistance to oil and gas.
