Global Natural Polymers Market 2018-2022 - Rise in Adoption of Natural Polymers for Packaging Applications -


The "Global
Natural Polymers Market 2018-2022"
report has been added to's

The global natural polymers market to grow at a CAGR of 5.11% during the
period 2018-2022.

Global Natural Polymers Market 2018-2022 has been prepared based on an
in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report
also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The natural polymer market is segmented based on product as cellulose
ethers, protein-based polymers, starch and fermentation polymers,
natural gums and others.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the
increase in use of natural polymers over synthetic polymers. Natural
polymers do not have any side effects since they are polysaccharides
that are derived from plant and animal sources. Therefore, consumers are
preferring natural polymers over synthetic polymers due to the adverse
effects of the latter on environment and human beings.

Vendors of the natural polymers industry are investing heavily on
research and development to provide customers with new and innovative
products. For example, in July 2018, Solvay launched Rhovanil US NAT, a
naturally sourced ingredient that can be used in chocolate,
confectionary, bakery and beverage applications. This key trend will
encourage other competitors to innovate new products to remain
competitive in the market thus, driving natural polymers market growth.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the
growth of this market is the rising prices of natural polymers. Factors
such as high raw material and supply chain costs are forcing prominent
vendors of natural polymers to hike the prices of their products. It is
expected that this will be a key factor impeding the growth of the
