Chinese Mainland In 2020, the production of biodegradable materials (including PLA, PBAT, PPC, PHA, starch based plastics, etc.) in China was about 400000 tons, and the consumption was about 412000 tons. Among them, the output of PLA is about 12100 tons, the import volume is 25700 tons, the export volume is 2900 tons, and the apparent consumption is around 34900 tons. Shopping bags and farm produce bags, food packaging and tableware, compost bags, foam packaging, agriculture and forestry gardening, paper coating are the major downstream consumer areas of degradable plastics in China. Taiwan, China Since the beginning of 2003, Taiwan has banned the free provision of petroleum based plastic bags and disposable tableware in restaurants, department stores, supermarkets, convenience stores and fast food restaurants. Since then, many companies have introduced PLA and other biodegradable plastic products. Since then, Taiwan's bioplastics industry has entered a period of rapid development, with an annual growth rate of 10-20%. At present, Taiwan has become the main producer of PLA products. Since there is no PLA production capacity in China, the products mainly rely on imports. In 2020, Taiwan imported 25500 tons of PLA and 2200 tons of other biodegradable plastics for processing into products. In fact, Taiwan's digestion capacity of biodegradable materials is limited, and a large part is used for export. It is understood that about two-thirds of PLA products produced in Taiwan are exported to other countries, including the United States and European countries. Mainstream degradable materials products manufacturer in Taiwan, China Taiwan Weimeng Industry Co., Ltd. is a pioneer in the field of PLA packaging materials in Asia. Its specific products include PLA coated paper, sheet and film, as well as cups, straws, food containers, trays and bowls under the brand of plan paper. As early as 2002, the company obtained the exclusive agency right of NatureWorks PLA in Taiwan. At present, the company's various PLA products are exported to Europe and the United States. Wei Meng has established a branch in Chinese mainland and established a production base to produce and sell PLA products. Other manufacturers of biodegradable material products in Taiwan include Far East New Century Co., Ltd., Caili Industrial Co., Ltd., Taiwan Ming'an Technology Co., Ltd., yongfengyu Investment Holding Co., Ltd., Chuangfa International Co., Ltd. Japan In 2020, the consumption of biodegradable materials (including PLA, starch based materials, PHA, etc.) in Japan was about 10000 tons, which was mainly met through import. Among them, PLA is the main force of consumption. In 2020, Japan's PLA consumption was 5800 tons, almost all of which were imported. According to statistics, 68% directly or indirectly come from NatureWorks American factory and 27% directly or indirectly come from TCP Thai factory. Due to the growth of demand for special purposes such as low heat-resistant transparent food containers and shrink labels, the consumption of PLA in Japan increased significantly in 2020 compared with the previous year. At present, food packaging and tableware, agriculture and horticulture, compost bags and paper coatings are the main downstream application fields of biodegradable plastics. The republic of korea Ju RuRu information statistics show that in 2020, South Korea's net import of 6500 tons of PLA is used for processing into products. Mainstream manufacturers of degradable materials and products in Korea At present, the developers of PLA modified materials and products in Korea mainly include Toray advanced materials Korea Inc. (formerly Toray Saehan Inc., now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toray industries), Korean biofoam, serim B & G, huvis (a joint venture between SK chemical and SAMYANG), Kolon FM, Hyosung and Green Chemical Co., Ltd. Among them, Toray advanced materials Korea Inc. began commercial production of PLA plates in Guiwei, South Korea in 2007, with an annual production capacity of 5000 tons. The raw materials are from NatureWorks, which belongs to ecomodel ® Under the brand. Southeast Asia Thailand achieved commercial production of PLA in 2018 and is currently the third largest PLA producer in the world. In 2020, the country exported 40000 tons of PLA. In the same year, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, the major countries in Southeast Asia, imported about 6400 tons of PLA, and the region's net export of PLA was about 33600 tons. In 2020, Southeast Asia will consume about 20000 tons of biodegradable materials. Among them, the apparent consumption of polylactic acid materials is about 16400 tons, the consumption of starch based materials is about 3900 tons, and the consumption of other products (including PHA, PBS, PBAT, PGA, regenerated cellulose film, etc.) is about 600 tons. PLA is the main biodegradable material in the local market, accounting for 78% of the total consumption. Agricultural horticulture, compost bags, food packaging and tableware are the main application market fields of biodegradable materials in Southeast Asia. It is understood that most of the biodegradable products produced in Southeast Asia are exported to Europe and the United States. Due to the high price of biodegradable plastics compared with petroleum based plastics, which is usually 3-10 times, and the lack of enthusiasm and willingness of local people and governments in Southeast Asia to pay higher prices for environmental protection products, the region has made slow progress in replacing traditional plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene and polystyrene with biodegradable plastics.

European Bioplastics: in the next five years, the global bioplastics production12 06,2021
At the 16th EUBP conference held in Berlin on November 30 and December 1, European Bioplastic put forward a very positive outlook on the prospect of the global bioplastics industry. According to the market data prepared in cooperation with Nova Institute (Hürth, Germany), the production capacity of bioplastics will more than triple in the next five years. "The importance of a growth rate of more than 200% in the next five years cannot be overemphasized. By 2026, the share of bioplastics in the total global plastic production capacity will exceed 2% for the first time. The secret of our success lies in our firm belief in the ability of our industry, our desire for continuous innovation and the courage to make necessary financial investment." Fran ç OIS de BIE, President of European bioplastics, explained. The global bioplastics production capacity will increase significantly from about 2.4 million tons in 2021 to 7.5 million tons in 2026. Biodegradable PBAT will quadruple, and PBS and bio Based Polyamide (PAS) are the main drivers of this amazing growth. Due to further investment in polylactic acid (PLA) production bases in Asia, the United States and Europe, PLA production will also continue to grow. The production capacity of bio based polyolefins such as PE (polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene) has also been improved. Biodegradable plastics, including PBAT, PLA and PBS, currently account for more than 64% of the global production capacity of bioplastics (1.5 million tons); Bio based non biodegradable plastics, including Bio based PE, bio based pet and bio based PA, account for nearly 36% (800000 tons). Packaging is still the largest application field of bioplastics, accounting for nearly 48% (1.2 million tons) of the total bioplastics market in 2021. The data also confirm that bioplastic materials have been used in many other industries, and the application portfolio continues to diversify. The relative share of segments such as consumer goods, fiber or agricultural and horticultural products continued to grow steadily. From the perspective of regional capacity development, Asia has further consolidated its position as a major production center. At present, nearly 50% of the global bioplastics are produced in this region, and nearly a quarter of the production capacity is located in Europe. However, the share of Europe and the share of the rest of the world will decline significantly in the next five years. In contrast, Asia is expected to exceed 70% by 2026. 0c468b3517702cd0ed0bbdd248c8ff55.png In 2021, the land used for planting renewable raw materials for the production of bioplastics is estimated to be 700000 hectares, accounting for only more than 0.01% of the global agricultural area of 5 billion hectares. With the expected growth of global bioplastics production capacity in the next five years, the land use share of bioplastics will increase to still less than 0.06%. "In terms of available agricultural area, this share is still very small. Therefore, there is no competition between renewable raw materials for food and feed and the production of bioplastics," von pogrell said. "More than 90% of the global agricultural area is used for pasture, feed and food."
