Bio-based Polyethylene Market To Reach $3,491.2 Million By 2030

April 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Bio-Based Polyethylene Market Growth & Trends

The global bio-based polyethylene market size is anticipated to reach USD 3,491.2 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 19.3% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing emphasis on circular economy principles is driving the market growth. Moreover, with an increased focus on waste reduction and improving resource efficiency, bio-based polyethylene aligns well with the circular economy concept. Traditional polyethylene (PE) relies heavily on fossil fuel feedstocks, which are subject to price volatility.

The need to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduce reliance on finite fossil fuel resources is expected to boost product demand in various industries. The government policies and regulations supporting sustainable practices further bolster the demand for bio-based PE. Many countries and regions are implementing measures to incentivize the use of renewable resources and reduce the carbon footprint of industries. Regulatory frameworks that promote the adoption of bio-based materials and reward sustainable practices create a conducive environment for the growth of bio-based polyethylene.
