Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic Packaging Market to Maintain Healthy CAGR During the Forecast 2016 - 2024

Press Release   •   Feb 06, 2017 04:59 EST

Oxo-biodegradable plastic is manufactured through extrusion process by blending a pro-degrading additive (to break down the molecular structure of plastic when exposed to heat or sunlight) in the plastic. Oxo-biodegradable plastic is known as degradable plastic. Oxo-biodegradable plastic is digested by microorganisms as it does not require a biological process to degrade. Oxo-biodegradable plastics are generally used for lightweight carrier bags, disposable bags, and packaging films. Oxo-biodegradable plastic offer following benefits such as potentially widely biodegradable, permeable, heat resistant, better strength and long shelf life. Owing to enhanced impact resistance and tensile strength, the PLA (Polylactic Acid or Polylactide) segment is expected to dominate the global oxo-biodegradable plastic packaging market. Food & beverage industry segment is projected to dominate among end user industry segment on account of increasing usage. The global oxo-biodegradable plastics packaging market is expected to register healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
