Starch Blended Biodegradable Polymers Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Starch blended biodegradable polymers are special kind of polymers which break down into natural by-products such as water, biomass, gases (CO2 and N2) and inorganic salts after their intended purpose. They are produced on an industrial level by processing low-density polyethylene, starch, ethylene acrylic acid copolymer in a mixture of water and glycerine. Starch blended biodegradable polymers have well-diversified applications across various sectors. In the food industry, they are used in food packaging and edible films which are odourless, tasteless, colourless, non-toxic and biodegradable. In the agriculture sector, they are widely used to control the release of nutrients from fertilisers into the soil, to cover greenhouses and as a mulch film to help with the fertility and health of the soil. In the medical field, they are used in the form of microsphere or hydrogel to deliver drugs. During 2009-2016, the global starch blended biodegradable polymers market grew at a CAGR of around 16%. The demand of starch blended biodegradable polymers is driven by the packaging and agriculture sector which account for the majority of its consumption.
