Biopolymers are polymeric biomolecules. Biopolymers contain monomeric units, which covalently bond to form larger structures. Based on monomeric units used and the structure of the biopolymer, there are three main classes of biopolymers namely polynucleotides (RNA and DNA), polypeptides and polysaccharides. These biopolymers are renewable, sustainable, carbon neutral, biodegradable, and compostable.
Increasing demand for bio-PE, bio-PET, and PLA is driving the product market of biopolymers to grow rapidly. Packaging industry is the prime application areas for biopolymers with maximum market share. Bottle industry is an emerging sector with fastest growth rate over the forecast period. Biodegradability, government interventions in green procurement policies, technological innovations are increasing the penetration of biopolymer in the application market.
North America is the leading market for biopolymers and accounted approximately one third of the market demand. U.S. is a high potential country, which is accelerating high growth in this region over the forecast period. Followed by North America region, Europe is growing owing to the industrial expansion. Investments from major players in this market resultant to growing demand, are driving the global biopolymer market growth. Leading players in this industry are NatureWorks LLC, Metabolix Inc., Braskem S.A., Meredian Inc., Indorama ventures Public Co. Ltd., Novamont S.P.A., Tianjin GreenBio Materials Co. Ltd., etc.

SEGMENTATIONS IN REPORT:
Biopolymers By Classes:
Biopolymers: Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in other words, they are polymeric biomolecules. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures.
Other Related Terms And Reports:
1. The term as defined here is specific to polymer science. An alternative definition of “additive” applies in some other fields of chemistry.
2. An additive is usually a minor component of the mixture formed and usually modifies the properties of the polymer.
3. Examples of additives are antioxidants, plasticizers, flame-retardants, processing aids, other polymers, colorants, UV absorbers, and extenders.
Plastic Additives: Plastics additives are all kinds of low molecular or polymeric, inorganic or organic substances that are added to a polymeric compound to render them more useful or to provide them with specific properties.
