Biobased plastics: sporting goods


The biobased plastic market is emerging rapidly. New partnerships, pilot plants and production facilities are announced or launched almost every day.

Through the high rate of technological development it is still an extremely immature market and biobased plastics need to create wider exposure in higher value goods. Due to good market prerequisites of the sport market, such as high growth rates, high willingness to pay and high material cost-insensitivity, the applicationof biobased plastics in sporting equipment and apparel is increasing.
