					    Global Markets and Technologies for Bioplastics -- Focus on Europe

    The focus of this report is on plastics made from renewable resources such as biomass or
    food crops. There is even some potential development of bioplastics from animal
    resources. Plastics that may be potentially made from waste carbon dioxide are reviewed
    because of their potential impact on bioplastics, but their data is not included in the
    forecasts presented here. Bioplastics are further defined here as polymer materials that are
    produced by synthesizing—chemically or biologically—materials that contain renewable
    organic materials. Natural organic materials that are not chemically modified (e.g., wood
    composites) are excluded. The report includes the use of renewable resources to create
    monomers that replace petroleum-based monomers, such as feedstocks made from
    sugarcane that are used to manufacture polyester and polyethylene. Ethanol, a major
    product in Brazil, is one small chemical step from ethylene.

    The rapid emergence of bioplastics is one of the major materials stories in recent years.
    Once billed as biodegradable plastics, the theme for renewably sourced plastics has shifted
    dramatically in recent years to sustainability. To maximize market impact, the growing
    trend is to compound biobased plastics with oil-based plastics to extend their reach into
    markets for durable products used in cars and cell phones, among other applications. The
    focus has shifted away from contribution to the solid waste stream and toward total carbon
    footprint.

    Market

   The global use of bioplastics was 0.64 million metric tons in 2010 and 0.85 million metric
    tons in 2011. BCC expects that the use of bioplastics will increase up to 3.7 million metric
    tons by 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.3%.

   The European market segment accounted for around 34% of the global market in 2010 and
    was nearly 0.21 million metric tons. This segment increased to 0.3 million metric tons in
    2011 and will further grow to 1.2 million metric tons in 2016, a CAGR of 32.1%.

   The German bioplastics market was 64,000 metric tons in 2010, and was nearly 83,000
    metric tons by the end of 2011. BCC expects this market to reach 320,000 metric tons by
    2016, a CAGR of 31%.
