Consumer Pressure and ‘Attenborough Effect’ Influence Brands to Invest in Sustainable Packaging

Majority of millennial shoppers are becoming highly-aware of the environmental footprint of products they use and thereby, sustainable brands are grabbing attention from environment-conscious end-users.

Manufacturers across various industrial sectors are adopting strategies to use biodegradable packaging materials to incorporate a pro-environment message as a part of their marketing policies.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation – a British charity – declared its New Plastics Economy initiative, which united globally recognized brands, including Unilever, the Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Amcor Limited, and PepsiCo, to work towards adopting sustainable packaging materials by the year 2025.

As a part of its Performance with Purpose 2025 agenda, PepsiCo announced that it will adopt 100% compostable, recyclable, or biodegradable packaging materials by 2025.

The Coca-Cola Company recently declared its packaging vision to make all its packaging 100% recyclable by the year 2025. It also “pledged” to incorporate 50% recycled materials across all its packaging worldwide by 2030.

Unilever also declared that it will reduce its packaging waste by one third by the year 2020 and adopt fully compostable or biodegradable packaging materials by 2025.

A palpable shift towards biodegradable packaging materials among retailers across the world is expected to provide a great boost to the development of the biodegradable packaging marketing in the coming future.

Stringent Regulations against Single-Use Packaging Drive Demand for Biodegradable Packaging Materials

According to statistics declared by the World Bank, more than 2 billion tons of solid waste was generated across the globe in 2016, and with the increasing global population, annual waste generation may increase by 70% to reach 3.4 billion tons by 2050.

Another report published by the World Economic Forum opined that in 2015, over 300 million tons of plastic waste was generated across the world, and only 14% of which was recycled.

Considering the perils of rising plastic waste generation, a majority of governments and institutes, such as the European Commission, have imposed a ban on the use of single-use plastic packaging materials.

Players in the biodegradable packaging material market are aiming to leverage lucrative business opportunities as manufacturers are shifting towards eco-friendly packaging materials while complying with strict government regulations.

Shift from Traditional to Biodegradable: Opportunities and Challenges for Stakeholders Across Supply Chain

The surge in biodegradable packaging can be attributed, in part, to regulatory challenges pertaining to the use of traditional plastics. The institution-industry collaboration to mitigate global warming has led to adoption of sustainable materials.

The growing emphasis towards ‘eco-friendly packaging’ is likely to create sustained opportunities for biodegradable packaging material manufacturers in the long-term.

However, the onus is on manufacturers to scale up and offer a wide range of functional products that are compatible with the evolving needs of various industries.

The lucrativeness of biodegradable packaging materials market has led to the foray of a large number of domestic and local players. The ambiguity over what qualifies as ‘biodegradable packaging material’ has also made it necessary for governments to have the necessary regulatory frameworks in place.

The broader impact of a shift towards biodegradable packaging is all-encompassing – from material providers to recyclers, every player in the supply chain is involved.

Further, many biodegradable materials cannot be recycled, which continues to create challenges in terms of investment.

The challenges are not limited to recyclability alone – ineffective waste management continues to create shortage as well as oversupply of raw materials used in the manufacture of biodegradable packaging.

Concerns about Sustainability and High Cost of Biodegradable Plastic Hinder Market Growth

Though the ban on plastic packaging has influenced retailers into shifting towards biodegradable packaging alternatives, high cost of biodegradable packaging materials continues to be the main impediment to its speed of adoption.

Unavailability of cost-effective biodegradable packaging materials remains a huge challenge for retailers and market players in the end-user industries.

Additionally, consumers are becoming aware of the fact that bio-plastics used in biodegradable packaging also have a significant environmental footprint, which is changing the dynamics of the biodegradable packaging material market.

As the level of consumer understanding about biodegradable packaging materials and current waste management infrastructure drive the manufacturer’s choice of biodegradable packaging materials, concerns about the biodegradability of bio-plastic may hamper the development of the biodegradable packaging material market in the upcoming years.

Proliferation of e-Commerce Sector Creating Lucrative Opportunities for Biodegradable Packaging Manufacturers

An increasing number of consumers purchasing products on the web and companies adopting omni-channel sales strategies have changed the dynamics of biodegradable packaging industry.

According to a recent report by the European Commission, the percentage of European individuals purchasing goods over the internet increased from 30% in 2007 to 57% in 2017.

The growth prospects of the biodegradable packaging material market are hugely influenced by rapidly growing e-commerce sector along with growing concerns about reducing packaging waste.

Needs for minimizing the environmental impact of over-packed shipped products due to consumer pressure are encouraging manufacturers in the biodegradable packaging material market to introduce biodegradable paper packaging solutions for the e-commerce sector.
