Biodegradable Films Add to the Product Shelf-Life? But How?


The worldwide packaging sector is going through unheard-of changes as a result of ongoing technical breakthroughs, rapid industrialization, and increasing urbanization. Depending on the material structure and climatic variables, plastic films might take 20–500 years to dissolve into the soil. Biodegradable alternatives have become more and more common as a result of plastic's poor biodegradability and extensive and irresponsible use. This is how biodegradable films are used.

Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the Biodegradable Film Market, valued at USD 15,251.71 million in 2022, will reach USD 23,763.94 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period of 2023 to 2030.

"Improved shelf-life of the packaged products is bolstering the market growth"

Proper food packaging is necessary to protect packaged foods from physical, chemical, and environmental pollutants while also maintaining their quality. The expansion of the worldwide biodegradable films market is being driven by biodegradable films' capacity to enhance food quality, shelf life, safety, and usability. The food sector uses biodegradable films for edible coating, paper boards, egg trays, carry bags, wrapping films, and food packaging.

What restraints the growth of the Global Biodegradable Film Market?

"High prices associated restrain the market growth"

The market for biodegradable film isn't expanding because of the high prices involved. Creating biodegradable films costs 20% to 80% more than creating films made of regular plastic. This is mostly caused by the expensive polymerization of biodegradable plastic, which arises from the fact that the majority of technologies are still in the research and development stages and have not yet attained economies of scale.
