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.”
