Starch blended biodegradable polymers represent the second largest type of biodegradable polymers, after PLA (Polylactic Acid). They can be produced either by combining starch and synthetic polymers or by chemical modifications. The starch content in these polymers should be more than 60% in order to breakdown the material and leave less harmful residues.
Starch blended biodegradable polymers are used in edible films and food packaging which reduce the loss of food and keep it fresh. In the agricultural sector, they are majorly used in mulch film, greenhouse covering and controlled release materials for fertilisers. In the medical field, starch blended biodegradable polymers can be used in drug delivery and bone tissue engineering. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global starch blended biodegradable polymer market reached a volume of 383 Thousand Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 664 Thousand Tons by 2024.
The production of starch blended biodegradable polymers during 2014-2018 witnessed a significant growth. As a result of their renewability, lower cost, higher abundance and biodegradability, they are used for the development of sustainable materials. Moreover, a shift in the behaviour of consumers towards green and sustainable products is also compelling various end-use industries to use biodegradable polymers. Furthermore, rising demand for eco-friendly packaging, expanding applications involving starch blended biodegradable polymer, growing environmental concern and government regulations are some of the other factors which are driving the market growth.
