Global Bio-Based Cutlery Market: Overview
The increasing use of plastic is creating masses of plastic waste and thus, governing authorities in several parts of the world are implementing bans on the use of plastic. Attributing to such regulatory norms and regulations, consumers are preferring bio-based cutlery made from bio-plastic and wood, over the use of plastic cutlery.
Single-use cutlery manufacturing companies are improving their production facilities to offer economic and environment friendly products such as bio-based cutlery. The youth population in regions such as Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth in the next decade. Thus, bio-based cutlery manufacturers are pursuing growth opportunities in countries such as India and China. Bio-based cutlery is expected to be an ideal choice for on-the-go consumers throughout the forecast period. Apart from functional qualities such as food hygiene & low costs, the grab and go features of bio-based cutlery also add to its growing demand around the globe. Furthermore, in recent years, several bio-based cutlery manufacturers are looking for positive opportunities in edible cutlery made of corn, wheat bran, rice and sorghum. Bio-based cutlery made from edible items reduces carbon dioxide emissions by tons.
