概要

バイオプラスチックの世界市場規模は2023年に126億米ドルに達しました。IMARC Groupは、2024年から2032年にかけての成長率(CAGR)は10.6%で、2032年には319億米ドルに達すると予測しています。大衆の間で環境の持続可能性に対する意識が高まっていること、廃棄物管理や排出に関する規制が厳しくなっていること、環境に優しい製品への嗜好が高まっていることなどが、市場の成長を促す主な要因となっています。

バイオプラスチックは、従来の石油由来のプラスチックではなく、コーンスターチやサトウキビ、あるいは藻類など、再生可能な資源から得られるプラスチック材料の一種です。バイオプラスチックの主な利点は、環境への影響が少ないことです。分解に何百年もかかる従来のプラスチックとは異なり、バイオプラスチックの一部は生分解性を持つように設計されており、より早く分解することができます。さらに、バイオプラスチックの製造工程で排出される温室効果ガスも少ない傾向にあります。そのため、包装から自動車部品まで、幅広い用途でより持続可能な選択肢となります。このような利点があるにもかかわらず、現在バイオプラスチックが世界のプラスチック市場に占める割合は小さいです。さらに、バイオプラスチックは、特に環境への関心が高まる中で、石油ベースのプラスチックに代わる有望な選択肢を提供しています。

バイオプラスチック業界の市場促進要因として最も重要なものひとつは、環境維持に対する意識の高まりと、それに伴う規制当局の支援です。世界各国の政府が廃棄物管理や排出に関する規制を強化する中、企業はより持続可能な素材を採用するよう奨励されています。これとともに、消費者の行動も市場動向に大きな影響を及ぼしており、環境に優しい製品への嗜好の高まりは、バイオプラスチック市場を牽引する顕著な要因となっています。気候変動やプラスチック汚染に対する意識が高まるにつれ、消費者は環境フットプリントの小さい製品を積極的に求めるようになっています。生分解性、堆肥化可能性、再生可能な資源調達を示すラベルは、しばしば購買決定に影響を与えます。さらに、バイオプラスチックはパッケージングだけでなく、多様な用途に使われるようになってきています。ヘルスケア、農業、テキスタイル、3Dプリンティングなどの分野でバイオプラスチックが採用され始めています。さらに、大手企業は、二酸化炭素排出量の削減やサプライチェーン全体における再生可能素材への移行など、持続可能性に関する野心的な目標を掲げています。これらの企業は目標を達成するために、材料の持続可能性目標を達成する方法としてバイオプラスチックに注目しています。

バイオプラスチック市場の動向と促進要因:

絶え間ない技術革新

技術革新もバイオプラスチック市場の強力な促進要因です。ポリマー科学、材料工学、製造プロセスの進歩により、バイオプラスチックは性能とコストの面で石油由来のものと遜色のないものになってきています。例えば、バイオポリマー配合の革新により、バイオプラスチックの引張強度、耐熱性、その他の機械的特性が向上しています。さらに、この分野での研究開発の活発化により、バイオプラスチックの新しい用途が生まれつつあり、それはパッケージングにとどまらず、自動車、建築、家電製品などの分野にも広がっています。企業は、高性能であるだけでなくコスト競争力のあるバイオプラスチックを開発するため、最先端技術に投資しています。この動向は今後も続くと予想され、全産業でバイオプラスチックがより広く採用される道が開かれます。

化石燃料価格の乱高下

化石燃料価格の変動は、バイオプラスチック産業を間接的に支える市場促進要因です。従来のプラスチックは石油化学製品に由来するため、石油・ガス価格の変動の影響を受けやすいです。このような変動は、石油ベースのプラスチックに依存している企業にとって、コストの不安定性をもたらす可能性があります。トウモロコシやサトウキビなどの再生可能資源を原料とするバイオプラスチックは、不安定な化石燃料市場からある程度隔離されているため、より安定した価格モデルを提供します。この価格安定性により、より安定した材料コストを維持したいメーカーにとって、バイオプラスチックは魅力的な選択肢となります。化石燃料の入手可能性と価格に対する懸念が続く中、より安定した代替品としてのバイオプラスチックの魅力は高まると思われます。

循環経済と廃棄物管理への懸念

循環型経済モデルの台頭も、バイオプラスチックの市場促進要因のひとつです。サーキュラー・エコノミーは、製品や素材をできるだけ長く使い続けることを重視し、廃棄物をなくすことを目指しています。この文脈において、バイオプラスチック、特に生分解性プラスチックは、従来の多くのプラスチックよりも効率的に堆肥化やリサイクルができるため、適しています。この特性は、産業界や自治体全体で廃棄物管理や削減戦略への注目が高まっていることと一致しています。循環型経済の原則を採用しようとする組織が増えるにつれて、バイオプラスチックの需要は伸びると予想されます。バイオプラスチックは、既存のリサイクルや堆肥化の流れに組み込むことができ、より効果的で持続可能な廃棄物管理システムを促進します。
