The "Biocomposites Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Fiber Type (Wood, Non-wood), By Polymer Type (Natural, Synthetic), By Product Type (Green, Hybrid), By End Use, And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global biocomposites market size is projected to reach USD 46.3 billion by 2025., exhibiting a 12.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Increasing use of biocomposites in end-use sectors such as automotive, building and construction, electrical and electronics, and consumer goods is the main driver triggering the biocomposites market. Additionally, changing consumer preference from plastic composites to ecofriendly biocomposites is expected to spur market growth over the forecast period.

The handling of plastic waste globally is a serious issue as plastic products do not decompose easily. In order to tackle this problem, a number of governments have banned plastic products and are promoting the use of biocomposites as a substitute for plastic composites.

Use of biocomposites in the automotive sector is likely to help in decreasing the overall weight of a vehicle and also reduce instances of injuries to passengers in cases of accidents. Similarly, surging demand in electrical and consumer durables sectors is expected to drive the market.

Rising disposable income in developing countries such as China and India and growing awareness about biocomposites and their advantages are key factors expected to drive the market in the region. Ban on non-reusable plastics in Europe is driving demand in the region.

A number of key players in the industry are investing in research and development of eco-friendly and high strength products. Some players have also integrated their operations throughout the value chain in an attempt to increase profitability and serve customers better.

Key Findings

  • By type of fiber, wood fiber composites are expected to grow at the fastest throughout the forecast period.
  • Transportation emerged as the largest end-use segment in the market, followed by building and construction.
  • Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest regional market for biocomposites. It is also likely to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period.
