The emergence of bio-feedstock and bio-based commodity polymers production, in tandem with
increasing oil prices, rising consumer consciousness, and improving economics, has ushered in a
new and exciting era of biopolymer commercialization. However, factors such as economic
viability, product quality/performance, and scale of operation will still play important role in
determining the commercialization spectrum.
The biopolymers industry will witness high growth of 7.7% annually in next five years from
