Biodegradable polymers are a class of polymers that break down after their intended purpose to result in natural byproducts such as gases (CO2, N2), water, biomass, and inorganic salts, owing to the action of microorganisms that occur naturally, such as bacteria, fungi, and algae. This characteristic differentiates them from conventional plastics, offering an eco-friendly alternative in the packaging, agriculture, textile, and healthcare sectors. The growing environmental concerns and the stringent regulations against plastic pollution worldwide are primary driving factors. The rising consumer awareness and preference for sustainable products, along with the increasing ban on single-use plastics, are also significant factors boosting the demand for biodegradable polymers. A major restraint is the higher cost of biodegradable polymers compared to conventional plastics, owing to the complex manufacturing process and the high raw material prices. Moreover, the performance issues in some applications restrict their widespread adoption. One of the challenges is the lack of infrastructure for composting and proper waste management systems in many regions. Additionally, there is a challenge in balancing the biodegradation rate with the product's life expectancy for specific applications. There are significant opportunities to innovate cost-effective production technologies and enhance performance characteristics to match or surpass conventional plastics. Furthermore, expanding applications in various industry sectors, such as automotive and electronics, offer new opportunities.
