The adoption of the resolution on ending plastic pollution (Draft) will promote relevant parties to fundamentally change the way of producing and consuming plastics and managing plastic waste. World plastic production soared from 2 million tons in 1950 to 348 million tons in 2017. Affected by this news, a large number of environmental protection concept stocks have ushered in an outbreak, among which the concept of degradable plastics is the most eye-catching, because the theme of this conference is to end plastic pollution. With the increase of environmental protection, most countries around the world have begun to restrict the use of traditional plastics.
Degradable plastics are an important alternative to traditional plastics. According to the data of o-state bioplastics Association, the global output of degradable plastics was 1.553 million tons last year, which is expected to increase to 5.297 million tons by 2026, with a compound growth rate of 28%. At present, the main driving force for the development of degradable plastics comes from the policy side. In order to reduce white pollution, the state has issued a number of treatment measures to vigorously support the promotion and popularization of biodegradable plastics such as PBAT while banning the use of traditional plastic products.
As an important basic material, plastic has been widely used in all aspects of economic and social production and life. It not only brings many conveniences to people's production and life, but also brings great environmental impact challenges. Plastic itself is not a pollutant. The essence of plastic pollution is that plastic waste leaks into soil, water and other natural environments and is difficult to degrade, resulting in environmental hazards such as visual pollution, soil damage and micro plastics.
Plastic products play an important role in daily life. With the upgrading of national plastic restrictions and the gradual enhancement of people's awareness of environmental protection, the market prospect of degradable plastics is huge and just needed. In the future, degradability and green environmental protection will become an important direction for the development of plastic products industry.
Under the theme of environmental protection, degradable plastics, as a key material to replace existing plastics, has undoubtedly become the direction of public speculation again. Degradable plastics once again occupy the upper air outlet, and there is a broad alternative space for degradable plastics in the domestic market! It is predicted that by 2025, the total market demand of domestic degradable plastics will reach 4152300 tons, which will be 9.23 times of the demand. Based on the unit price of 20000 yuan / ton, the market space will be 83 billion yuan. Considering the large amount of foreign demand, the market of more than 100 billion is about to break out!
