Market application analysis of biodegradable starch plastics

in seeking to solve the problem of plastic waste pollution by replacing non degradable plastic products with at least 1million plastic bags each year, biodegradable starch plastics based on starch have developed rapidly because of their degradability, wide sources of raw materials, low price and renewable, Covestro, which accounts for the output of degradable plastics, has continuously injected innovation and inspiration into more than 70% of the research and development of materials, which has attracted much attention and welcome

according to the current situation, degradable plastics are still used most in traditional plastic products, such as packaging products and disposable household products. In addition, the markets worth exploring are all kinds of daily necessities, stationery, toys, civil engineering supplies and medical plastic products. At present, there are few people entering these fields, the market demand is large, and the added value is high. In particular, at present, China has begun to vigorously implement desert control, barren mountains planting trees and grass, urban planning, as well as various slope protection and soil consolidation projects. The use of disposable plastic products will be greatly increased, which is a very good opportunity for degradable plastics

in terms of price, at present, the price of starch plastic is lower than that of ordinary plastic. The price of starch resin masterbatch is about 7500 yuan/ton, and the international market is 1200 dollars/ton. The price of products obtained after mixing is more than 15% lower than that of ordinary plastic products. Therefore, in addition to some areas required by policies, such as shopping bags, disposable tableware and other places, it was rarely used as early as 1992. Moreover, the added value of degradable plastics used in the agricultural field is not high and the profit space is small. However, degradable plastics used in daily necessities, packaging materials, civil engineering supplies and medical plastic products have very high cost performance and added value, especially the profit of medical products is more than 100% - 200%. In these emerging application fields, there are relatively few thin products involved, and most of them are products with great thickness, such as geotechnical, water retaining substrates, toys, stationery, infusion tubes, infusion bags, disposable syringes, etc. unlike the preparation of thin products, starch plastics with these uses and properties do not exist to make up for the lack of use performance by increasing the thickness, so compared with ordinary plastics, the cost is low, generally 15% - 20% lower than ordinary plastics, If the starch content is increased or all starch thermoplastic is used, the cost is lower and the cost performance is higher. At present, the production cost of high starch content products is about 5000 yuan/ton, and the processing cost of all starch thermoplastic products can be reduced to less than 5000 yuan/ton, which shows that the price advantage is relatively obvious

in addition, in these new fields, starch plastics have little competition within the industry, because at present, there are few manufacturers entering this field, and they are still concentrated in the field of packaging and agriculture. After loading to a certain load, they cannot rise again. The competition faced by products is mainly the competition with ordinary plastic products. This competition is affected by factors such as price, product performance, policy and people's cognition. The first three factors will be conducive to the development of starch plastics in these fields, and will form a new industry with high added value

now, the United States, Japan, Germany and other western countries are vigorously developing this new environmentally friendly material. Starch plastics can not only solve the "white pollution", but also reduce the dependence on oil and save oil resources, and open up new ways of application and value-added of corn starch, providing new opportunities for the adjustment of rural industrial structure and the development of agricultural economy
