Global Biodegradable Plastics Market Expected to Grow at 19.6% CAGR During 2012-2016

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Biodegradable Plastics - 2013 Report" to their offering.

Big cities around the world, particularly in North America and Western Europe, have realized the need for reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by decreasing the waste materials disposed in landfills and incinerators and are now adopting citywide composting. Since biodegradable plastics can be easily composted in a period of few months, the space used for landfills have reduced dramatically. This will result in reduction of methane emission to the atmosphere. Decrease in the release of methane in the environment, which is about 72 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas over a period of 20 years, will reduce the detrimental effects of plastics on the environment. The global biodegradable plastics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.60 percent over the period 2012-2016. However, the large production costs associated with biodegradable plastics could pose a challenge to the growth of the market.

This report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors. The study is based on an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry.
