This is projected to propel demand for compostable foodservice packaging significantly during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Rising Manufacturers Focus on Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Many countries across the globe are taking initiatives to promote compostable or biodegradable packaging for the green environment. Foodservice manufacturers are shifting their preferences toward bio-degradable packaging to maintain the quality and freshness of food products. Moreover, to reduce the environmental impact, companies have started to launch a hundred percent bio-degradable plastic-like material, which is made from renewable materials like corn, potato, cellulose, starch, etc.  For instance, Caribbean Containers Inc. launched Eco Pak—a range of products that are hundred percent non-toxic. The containers are 100 percent bio-degradable 90 days after use. Due to the alarming environmental issues due to the plastic waste from foodservice packaging there has been a reduction in the use of plastic and foam packaging.

Expanding Beverages Packaging is Driving the Global Compostable Foodservice Packaging Market

The never-ending ending demand for bottled water and non-alcoholic beverages is surging the compostable packaging in the beverage sector. The increasing high-quality drinking water and the fear of diseases due to drinking polluted tap water fuels the Global Compostable Foodservice Packaging Market. Also, the need to compost these water bottles to reduce the harmful environmental impact aid to increase the usage of compostable packaging. Moreover, the companies in the beverages market, such as PepsiCo, have been using recyclable PET bottles for their beverages. PepsiCo's recyclable PET bottles account for 30% of packaging volume in North America and 7% globally. For instance, in July 2020, PepsiCo joined the consortium of global consumer goods companies, including Unilever, to further develop and scale the world’s first recyclable paper bottle, initially developed by Diageo and Pilot Lite.

Restraints

High Manufacturing Costs Hinder the Market Growth

Compostable plastics are made from plants such as soybeans, corns, and cellulose. Adequate production of biodegradable plastic requires the use of cropland to provide the natural materials required instead of producing food. Moreover, there is a need for costly industrial processors and composters, mainly those which require high industrial-scale temperatures to be broken down. Also, the availability of costly equipment for both processing and recycling is a huge problem while manufacturing. Furthermore, it costs 20-50% more to produce compostable plastic than traditional plastic. The cost of producing compostable materials for packaging continues to be higher than conventional packaging. All these factors lead to increase concern among key industry players. But, with improved technologies and more access to materials, this cost can be reduced significantly.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Compostable Foodservice Packaging Market
