    • Bioplastics : Technologies & Global MarketsPublished:September 2011No.Of Pages:208Price:US $ 4850Bioplastics will grow at a significant pace over the next 5 years. The totalworldwide use of bioplastics is valued at 571,712 metric tons in 2010. Thisusage is expected to grow at a 41.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR)from 2010 through 2015, to reach 3,230,660 metric tons in 2015.By 2010, ready access to crops such as soybeans, corn, and sugarcanemoved the United States strongly into bioplastics. North American usage isestimated at 258,180 metric tons in 2010 and is expected to increase at a41.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach 1,459,040 metrictons in 2015.Use of bioplastics got off to a faster start in Europe than in the UnitedStates. European usage is now reported at 175,320 metric tons in 2010 andis expected to increase at a 33.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) toreach 753,760 metric tons in 2015.Additional InformationINTRODUCTIONMarket forces, especially increasing focus on environmental threats such asglobal warming and disposal of products containing toxic materials, havestrongly driven development and early use of bioplastics.Bioplastics are plastics that are made from renewable resources, such asfood crops or biomass. The terms “bioplastics” and “biodegradable plastics”have been used interchangeably, but there is a difference between the twotypes of polymers.BCC Research defines a fully biodegradable polymer as a polymer that iscompletely converted by microorganisms to carbon dioxide, water, andhumus. In the case of anaerobic biodegradation, carbon dioxide, methane,and humus are the degradation products. Some, but not all, bioplastics arealso biodegradable.
    • STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESGoals and objectives of this study include:Identifying trends that will affect use of bioplastics and their major end-useapplication markets Reviewing, analyzing, and forecasting specific endbioplastics market by material types, with sections devoted to each type ofrenewable-sourced plastic Analyzing and forecasting market developmentsfrom the viewpoint of major applications for bioplastics, that is, packaging,automotive, electrical/electronic, medical, building, and construction andothers Profiling many of the most important suppliers of bioplastics,including resin roducers and compoundersREASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYThe rapid emergence of bioplastics is one of the major materials stories ofthe period starting in 2010. Once billed as biodegradable plastics, the themefor renewably sourced plastics has shifted dramatically in recent years tosustainability. In order to maximize market impact, there is now a growingtrend to compound bio-based plastics with oil-based plastics to extend theirreach into markets for durable products used in cars, cell phones, andelsewhere. The focus has shifted to total carbon footprint, and away fromcontribution to the solid waste stream.Browse All Energy and Power Market Research ReportsINTENDED AUDIENCEDue to the growing concern about climate change and negative healthimpacts of many existing materials, this report will be of interest to anyonewho sells, designs, or manufactures products that are, or could be, madefrom polymeric materials. This report will also be of value to individuals whoare helping to establish public policy about issues ranging from limits on useof plastics packaging to potential limits on use of vinyl compounds in medicalapplications.The report Bioplastics : Technologies & Global Markets will be of value totechnical and business personnel in the following areas, among others:Personnel in end-user companies in a wide range of industries from retailbags to solar cell manufacturing Marketing and management personnel incompanies that produce, market, and sell any type of plastics Companiesinvolved in the design and construction of process plants that manufacture
    • resins and products made from the resins Companies that supply, or want tosupply, equipment and services to plastics companies Financial institutionsthat supply money for such facilities and systems, including banks, merchantbankers, venture capitalists, and others Investors in both equity and fixed-income markets; the fate of the plastics very much weighs on the values ofthe publicly traded stocks of companies such as Eastman, Bayer, DSM, andDuPont Personnel in government at many levels, ranging from federal tostate and local authorities, many of whom are involved in trying to ensurepublic health and safety; the report also will be of interest to militaryscientists studying new packaging and equipment.SCOPE OF REPORTThe focus of this report is plastics that are made from renewable resourcessuch as biomass or food crops. There is even some potential development ofbioplastics from animal resources. Plastics that may be potentially madefrom waste carbon dioxide are reviewed because of their potential impact onbioplastics, but their data is not included in the forecasts presented here.Bioplastics are further defined here as polymer materials that are producedby synthesizing, either chemically or biologically, materials which containrenewable organic materials. Natural organic materials that are notchemically modified, such as wood composites, are excluded. The reportincludes use of renewable resources to create monomers that replacepetroleum-based monomers, such as polyester and polyethylene that usefeedstocks made from sugarcane. Ethanol, a major product in Brazil, is onesmall chemical step from ethylene.The focal point is on the following resin chemistries, including: Polylactic acidThermoplastic starch Bio-polyamides (nylons) Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA)Bio-polyols Cellulosics Bio- polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) Bio-polyethylene Bio-bottle-grade polyethylene terephthalate (PET)Biodegradable and photodegradable polymers made from petrochemicalfeedstocks are not included.Other renewable resin chemistries are also covered but in less detail becausetheir roles are not as well developed. They include collagen and chitosan.METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCESBoth primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparingthis report. Extensive searches were made of the literature and the Internet,including many of the leading trade publications, as well as technicalcompendia, government publications, and information from trade and other
    • associations. Many background sources were used to develop chemical andproperty descriptions, but all forecasts are solely attributable to BCCResearch.TABLE OF CONTENTS CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY INTENDED AUDIENCE SCOPE OF REPORT METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES AUTHOR’S CREDENTIALS RELATED BCC REPORTS BCC ONLINE SERVICES DISCLAIMERCHAPTER TWO: SUMMARY SUMMARY TABLE USE OF BIOPLASTICS BY GLOBAL REGION, THROUGH2015 (METRIC TONS) SUMMARY FIGURE USE OF BIOPLASTICS BY GLOBAL REGION, 2008-2015(METRIC TONS)CHAPTER THREE: THE BIOPLASTICS INDUSTRY SUMMARY HISTORY OF BIOPLASTICSCHAPTER FOUR: PROS AND CONS OF BIOPLASTICS THE CASE FOR BIOPLASTICS THE CASE AGAINST BIOPLASTICSCHAPTER FIVE: BIOPLASTICS BY RESIN TYPE POLYLACTIC ACID POLYMERS (PLA) CHEMISTRY PRODUCERS TABLE 1 GLOBAL PLA SUPPLIERS PRODUCTION TABLE 2 USE OF PLA BY GLOBAL REGION, THROUGH 2015 (METRICTONS) FIGURE 1 USE OF PLA BY GLOBAL REGION, 2008-2015 (METRIC TONS)PROPERTIES
