The report highlights key factors driving the market growth and prominent players with their progress in the market.

Biocomposite is a material formed by a matrix and a reinforcement of natural fibers, including wood, hemp, flax, jute, and sisal. The matrix material present in biocomposites can be biodegradable, nonbiodegradable, or synthetic. Synthetic matrix materials, along with natural fibers, are used to form hybrid biocomposites.

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for lightweight materials from the automotive industry to meet the required performance standards for fuel economy. Biocomposites are increasingly used in the industry as it reduces vehicle weight, which helps in improving vehicle performance and lowering CO2 emissions. According to the European Union (EU) Commission, on a yearly basis, the European automotive industry consumes 80,000 metric ton of plant and wood fibers to reinforce composite products instead of other synthetic fibers. The European Union (EU) has also emphasized using recyclable and biodegradable parts for automotive interior components. Biocomposites have better acoustic and thermal properties than the composites of nonrenewable origin, making them an ideal material to be used for manufacturing interior parts of a vehicle. Various properties of biocomposites make them suitable for the manufacture of nonstructural interior components, including seat fillers, seat backs, headliners, interior panels, and dashboards.

TTS, Lingrove, Bcomp Ltd., UPM, Flexform Technologies, Tecnaro Gmbh, Green Bay Decking, Fiberon LLC, Arkema, and Procotex are among the well-established players constituting the majority of the biocomposites market share.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Biocomposites Market

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the chemicals & materials industry owing to the shutdown of manufacturing facilities, difficulty in procuring raw materials and components, and restrictions on logistic operations. The disruptions in the supply of raw materials to manufacturers hampered biocomposites production. The outbreak distorted operational efficiency and hindered the value chains due to the sudden shutdown of national and international boundaries, creating revenue loss and damage. Various biocomposites manufacturers had to temporarily close their operations or limit their production capacities, which negatively impacted the biocomposites market. The fall in demand due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the manufacturing of vehicles has restrained the biocomposites market. However, the businesses are gaining ground as governments of various countries across the world have eased out the previously imposed restrictions. The start of operations in the biocomposites manufacturing units is positively impacting the market development.
