The Global Bioplastics Market is divided into By Type, Application, and Region. By Type, the bioplastics market is bifurcated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable bioplastics. Furthermore, biodegradable is segmented into polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), starch blend, polyester (PBAT & PBS), and cellulose acetate. Non-biodegradable is divided into the epoxy, polyurethane, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and others (polyamide (PA), polyethylene (PE), ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM), and poly-trimethylene terephthalate (PTT) in which non-biodegradable waste contributes to the highest market share. PET is largely used in bottle packaging. Based on Application, the market is classified into rigid packaging, flexible packaging, textile, agriculture & horticulture, consumer good, automotive, electronic, and building & construction, and others in which rigid packaging contributes to the highest market share.
