Strict regulations in the biodegradable packaging materials market

According to the World Bank, the production of plastic waste is expected to increase by around 70% and by 2050 it is expected to reach more than 3.3 billion tonnes.

The dangers of plastic waste generation have compelled governments and institutes to ban single-use plastic packaging materials. Several regulations and legislations mainly focusing on plastic packaging and single-use plastic have been introduced in more than 60 countries, regions and cities. Certification procedures and labeling regulations are in place to control false claims about sustainable packaging.

The United States represents only 4% of the world’s population but produces more than 105 kg of plastic per person per year. In the United States, the Break Free from Plastic Pollution Act requires producers to ban single-use plastic products, manage waste and suspend permits for new plastic factories, in addition to other measures imposed.

The National Action Plan for the Sustainable Management of Plastics has set up 3 goals of plastic concern. First, recycle 50% of plastics by the end of 2025, second, phase out single-use plastic by 90% by the end of 2026, and third, reduce plastic waste generation by 30% by 2030.

Manufacturers need to comply with stringent government regulations established in regional markets and move towards environmentally friendly packaging solutions, which is expected to drive the market growth.
