Future of Biodegradable Materials Industry in China

Dec, 2013   |   46  Pages   |   CCM International Limited   |   Format : PDF

Biodegradable material is a new kind of environmentally friendly material. With the increasing awareness of environmental protection around the world, especially in China, biodegradable materials become very promising products. However, the application of biodegradable materials was not so widely promoted as expected since the Chinese government released the Restriction of Production, Sales and Use of Plastic Bags in 2008. Even so, the capacity of biodegradable materials in China kept growing since then (a CAGR of about 33.8% during 2007-2012). So far, there are mainly four kinds of biodegradable materials in China, namely starch based plastics, PLA, PHA and PBS, among which the capacity of starch based plastics is the biggest in the last few years thanks to its mature production technology in China. To be noticed, the capacity of other biodegradable materials such as PLA (a CAGR of about 28.0% during 2008-2013) expands very fast, which indicates huge potential market in China and around the world.

What are shortages and problems of biodegradable materials industry in China? Where is the market of biodegradable materials in China so far and in the future? What about the future capacity of biodegradable materials in China? Whats the technology of biodegradable materials applied so far and whats the development direction of the technology in the future?

In order to verify all the above-mentioned questions, the report was generated by CCM through investigation, deep analysis, and detail results of designed questionnaires.

The highlights of the report include:

1. Current market situation of Chinas biodegradable materials
