The increasingly stringent regulations against non-biodegradable plastic across the globe are the primary factor expected to drive the market growth of biodegradable cutlery over the forecast period.

Most countries around the world are expected to ban plastic usage in any form as it has become a prominent global issue. According to a press release by the European Commission in December 2018, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union framed policies and rule to reduce marine litter through the ban on single-use plastics. In addition to this, in 2015, European Commission proposed a ‘plastic bags’ directive to regulate and restrict the usage of plastic bags.

According to this directive, the 28 EU countries were required to adopt any one of the two proposals either to ensure that the usage of plastic bags was reduced to 40 units per year per person from 90 units per year per person. These regulations will increase the awareness as well as the demand for biodegradable cutleries over the forecast period.

The usage of biodegradable tableware is increasing as the global trend to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and plastic waste makes rapid progress. Cutlery such as spoons, bowls, plates, and other products that can degrade within weeks of being thrown away, is referred to as biodegradable tableware.

The amount of packaging trash in municipal solid garbage has been noted to be high, which has raised environmental concerns. Oil-based polymers, a common component of modern packaging, are essentially non-biodegradable. Certain packaging options are also challenging to discard and cannot be used again.

Europe was the largest market in 2022 accounting for around 36% of the total market share globally. On the other hand, North America is expected to become the fastest-growing market with a CAGR of 7.2% from 2023 to 2030. Over the past few years, North America has witnessed a substantial reduction of plastics by major food chains.

For instance, Starbucks Corporation, one of the largest coffeehouse chain targets phased out the use of plastic straws and lids, key components of its drinks, conventionally. This initiative will ensure significant growth in the demand for biodegradable cutlery over the forecast period.
