Bio-based Plastics in the World

Capacities, Production and Applications: Status Quo and Trends towards 2020

Last chance to take advantage of early subscription and to join the advisory board:

First comprehensive multi-stakeholder market study on “Bio-based Plastics in the World – Capacities, Production and Applications: Status Quo and Trends towards 2020”

There is a wide agreement regarding the lack of a worldwide and solid market study on the fast growing bio-based plastics business. Until today, no coherent and fundamental inquiry of the worldwide bio-based plastics market has been made. Especially data on the rising Asian markets is insufficient.

Experienced market researchers from nova-Institute in co-operation with leading international bioplastic experts have developed a full concept for a multi-stakeholder market study solving this essential problem of uncertainty and established a competent team capable of delivering ambitious results.

The following worldwide leading companies and associations have decided to support the study as stakeholders.
