Environmental benefits associated with natural polymers has escalated their adoption across end-use industries such as food & beverages, oilfield and packaging significantly. Stringent regulatory framework promoting the usage of bio-based products along with rising environmental concerns is slated to fuel natural polymer consumption over the forecast period.

The strong growth of pharmaceuticals is expected to further benefit the growth of Natural Polymers Market. The growth of pharmaceutical industry will subsequently uplift the demand for fermentation products and starch. End-use industries such as medical, food & beverages and packaging widely utilize cellulose ethers obtained from various plants such as wood pulp and cotton. Other commonly used cellulose ethers are hydroxyethyl cellulose, methyl cellulose, and microcrystalline cellulose.

Increasing application in end-use industries such as adhesives & sealants, toiletries, construction, and leather tanning among others is expected to result in increased product demand over the forecast period. However, high cost in comparison to synthetic polymers along volatile raw material availability is anticipated to hinder market growth and pose challenges for market participants. Rising awareness regarding deforestation, stringent norms, along with unavailability of seasonal raw materials are few of the areas that obstruct the development of natural polymer industry.
North America was the leading regional market in 2016 and is set to witness robust growth rate over the coming years. Presence of advanced technologies coupled with rising need for reducing dependence on petroleum based derivatives are few of the key factors set to augment regional market growth. Medical application was the leading segment in the region followed by food & beverages. U.S. government aims at reducing carbon footprints significantly that is expected to benefit the growth of Natural Polymer Industry.

Region such as Asia Pacific and Latin America are anticipated to witness moderate growth owing to heavy usage of synthetic polymers and relatively easy regulatory framework. However, rising consumer awareness coupled with environmental concerns in Indian & Chinese cities such as Delhi and Beijing is expected to shift focus towards bio-based alternatives.
