Global Sustainable Polymers Market: Growth Drivers

  • Effective Degradation of Sustainable Polymers in Landfills

One of the most important factors that has driven demand within the global sustainable polymers market is their ease of disposal. In the presence of suitable conditions, sustainable polymers can easily degrade inside landfills. The uses of sustainable polymers across a wide range of industries is expected to fetch key revenues for the vendors.

The use of sustainable polymers for manufacturing food containers is a key driver of market demand. Other areas of application for sustainable polymers are plastic cutleries, clothing fibers, and cell phone cases.

  • Popularity of Plant-Based Polymers

Use of renewable feedstock for manufacturing sustainable polymers has garnered the interest of energy scientists. Furthermore, plant-based polymers have become the cynosure of developments within the polymer industry. Environmentalists in several regions have lobbied against the use of non-biodegradable polymers. This trend has shifted the focus towards sustainable polymers.

Despite the relevance of sustainable polymers in the contemporary times, challenges in manufacturing these polymers could hamper market growth. Sustainable polymers lack in toughness and elasticity which discourages several manufacturers from using them. However, research aimed at optimizing the potential of these polymers shall continue to drive Sustainable Polymers Market demand.
