Transparency Market Research Report Added "Bioplastics Market" to its database.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2014 -- Bioplastics are a type of plastic manufactured from biomass sources such as vegetable oils and certain starches and are also called biobased plastic or biodegradable plastic. They are commonly used for insulation, as a packaging material, and in crockery and food packaging. Since bioplastics are plant based products, the consumption of petroleum for the production of plastic is expected to decrease by 10-15 percent by 2018. The bioplastic industry has high potential for growth if the focus is not just the replacement of current plastic applications but innovation of newer properties and newer applications as well.
