According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to
the growth of the global natural polymers market is the increase in the
use of natural polymers over synthetic polymers:

Global natural polymers market: Increase in the
use of natural polymers over synthetic polymers

Natural polymers are preferred over synthetic polymers due to their
adverse effects on the atmosphere and on human beings. They are
polysaccharides that are derived from plant and animal sources and
biocompatible and do not have any side effects. Natural polymers are
produced through biological processes, whereas synthetic polymers are
produced using chemicals processes. The adoption of natural polymers in
end-user industries such as pharmacy and food and beverage is high in
comparison to synthetic polymers.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on plastics,
polymers, and elastomers, "Natural polymers are non-toxic as they are
carbohydrates in nature and composed of repeating monosaccharide units.
Moreover, the production cost of natural polymers is low as the raw
materials are available at low prices. As natural polymers have
applications in many industries, they are produced in large quantities.
Hence, natural polymers are more widely available than synthetic
polymers. These factors are likely to drive the market."
