News Biopackaging for Beverages Compostable bottles present an increasingly attractive alternative to recycled PET for beverage companies, according to a new Drinks Biopackaging report from leading food and drink consultancy Zenith International. Biopackaging use in the combined markets of West Europe and North America rose by 47% in 2010 to over 100 million litres, but volumes remain small as a proportion of total volume. There is a clear need for government incentives if the market is to make a real step change, particularly in the area of drinks packaging. “While the environmental credentials of compostable bottles sit well with increasingly green-minded consumers, challenges such as price, separation from PET and composting facilities persist,” commented Zenith Senior Analyst Jenny Foulds. Zenith’s 2011 Drinks Biopackaging report finds that: • Biopackaging does have potential to improve sustainability in beverage packaging. • Increased retailer acceptance has helped compostable packaging become a mainstream opportunity. • Whilst the economic downturn may have affected demand, interest in added value, convenience and eco-friendly products will return. • Larger formats, such as 1.5 and 2 litre sizes or above, represent a relatively untapped segment. • Growing interest in locally-available renewable crops may bring additional scope. “Despite the difficulties, we foresee continuing strong growth in development projects. If the challenges can be answered, then volume can gain serious market share”, Jenny Foulds concluded. The Report contains over 80 pages and is available for € 1500 or US-$ 2000 via Zenith’s website. 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 DRINKS BIOPACKAGING MARKET, 2006-10 North America, West Europe Million litres 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010e bioplastics MAGAZINE [02/11] Vol. 6 5
