    [title] => As Plastic Regulations and Bans Increase, Market Value for Biodegradable Polymers Exceeds $1 Billion
    [short_title] => 
    [summary] => Western Europe largest market for biodegradable plastics as region tightens restrictions on plastic shopping bags; regulation
    [slug] => as-plastic-regulations-and-bans-increase-market-value-for-biodegradable-polymers-exceeds-1-billion
    [body] => Led by Western Europe, increasing regulations and bans against plastic bags and other single-use plastic items such as drinking straws is driving growing demand for biodegradable plastics, according to new analysis from IHS Markit. The current market value of biodegradable plastics exceeds $1.1 billion in 2018, but could reach $1.7 billion by 2023, the report said.

Biodegradable or compostable polymers are bio-based or fossil-fuel-based polymers (plastics) that undergo microbial decomposition to carbon dioxide and water in industrial or municipal compost facilities. A few of these polymers decompose in backyard compost bins or in soil, freshwater or saltwater.

The food packaging, disposable tableware (cups, plates, and cutlery) and bags sector is the largest end-use segment, as well as the major growth driver for biodegradable polymer consumption. This segment will benefit from local restrictions on plastic shopping bags and will achieve double-digit growth. Compost bags are the second most important end-use for biodegradable polymers. This market segment will experience strong growth thanks to the gradual expansion of composting infrastructure and growing interest in diverting organic waste such as leaves, grass clippings and food waste from landfill, according to the IHS Markit Chemical Economics Handbook: Biodegradable Polymers Report.

Foam packaging, which includes starch-based loose-fill packaging (packing peanuts), is a significant end-use for biodegradable polymers in Western Europe and North America; mulch films and other agricultural applications are important end uses in Western Europe and Asia. Smaller-volume markets include paper coatings for cups and cartons, as well as textiles, nonwoven fabrics, resorbable medical devices such as sutures and implants, downhole tools for oil and gas field operations, and 3-D printing filament.

In 2018, global demand for these polymers is 360,000 metric tons, but total consumption of biodegradable polymers is expected to increase to almost 550,000 metric tons by 2023, representing an average annual growth rate of 9 percent for the five-year period, which is equivalent to a volume increase of more than 50 percent from 2018 to 2023.

Western Europe, with the world’s strictest and increasingly stringent regulations for single-use plastics, commands 55 percent of the global market value in 2018 for these specialty biodegradable polymers, followed by Asia and Oceania (Australia and New Zealand) at 25 percent, then North America at 19 percent of consumption, with the rest of the world combined for less than 1 percent of demand.


“Biodegradable plastics, which are largely starch-based compounds or polylactic acid (PLA)-based materials, have become more cost-competitive with petroleum-based plastics and the demand is growing significantly, particularly in Western Europe, where environmental regulations are the strictest,” said Marifaith Hackett, director, specialty chemicals research at IHS Markit and the report’s lead author. “However, the demand for these biodegradable polymers is still a drop in the bucket when you compare it to demand for traditional plastics such as polyethylene (PE).”

According to IHS Markit, global demand for PE, the world’s most-used plastic, has nearly doubled during the last 20 years. IHS Markit expects 2018 global PE demand to exceed 100 million metric tons (MMT). However, significant new market pressures, including a rise in consumer expectations around sustainability, along with tightening environmental regulations in mature markets such as Europe and key growth markets such as China, could threaten future demand growth.

“The properties and processability of biodegradable polymers have improved, allowing the use of these materials in a broader range of applications, but legislation is the single most important demand driver for these plastics,” Hackett said. “Restrictions on the use of non-biodegradable plastic shopping bags in Italy and France have led to a significant increase in the consumption of biodegradable polymers in those countries, and we expect European countries will continue to lead in legislative restrictions.”

In contrast, Hackett said, biodegradable polymer use has grown more slowly or stagnated in places that lack mandates. “Growing consumer awareness and activism regarding environmental issues could certainly increase the market for biodegradable plastics,” she said. “To truly capture the benefits of these biodegradable polymers, however, you need to have the collection and composting infrastructure to support their use. Very few major cities or municipalities currently have the necessary infrastructure in place.”

Hackett said it is important to understand that many biodegradable polymers are compostable only in special industrial composting facilities, which operate at higher temperatures than home compost piles. “Only a subset of biodegradable polymers is compostable in backyard compost bins; an even smaller subset is compostable in the soil or in marine environments,” Hackett said.

Despite the positive potential of biodegradable polymers, they are still mostly taking a backseat to other sustainability approaches, such as reducing plastics consumption and recycling, Hackett said. “For various reasons, which may include consumer confusion regarding bio-based plastics versus biodegradable polymers, there is not as much demand for these more sustainable plastics as you might expect, despite heightened public awareness of the plastics waste issue,” she said. “In addition, suitable disposal options for products made from biodegradable polymers are often lacking. The cost of establishing the infrastructure necessary to support their collection and composting remains a barrier to demand growth.”

Mandatory composting programs can contribute to demand growth for biodegradable polymers, the IHS Markit report said. These programs divert organic waste from landfill, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions from landfill sites. The expansion of composting programs can spur demand for compostable trash bags and food service ware, both important end uses for biodegradable polymers. The shortage of composting facilities that are capable of processing biodegradable polymers limits the positive impact of mandatory composting programs on biodegradable polymer demand.

“More legislation is likely coming in Europe or at the E.U. level, and if that occurs, we could see major changes in this industry and pushback from producers of traditional plastic products,” Hackett said. “The last time we at IHS Markit assessed the global demand for biodegradable polymers, we noted the U.S. was the largest driver of demand growth for this segment, but due to legislation, Europe is by far the leading demand center. Europe is the place to watch, as Europeans are particularly motivated to reduce marine litter.”

The issue of plastics and sustainability will be a key topic of discussion at the upcoming 6th Annual Global Plastics Summit (GPS) 2018, October 30 – November 1, in Chicago. Experts from IHS Markit and the Plastics Industry Association will discuss the latest market outlooks from key industry sectors, and will feature senior business leaders sharing their companies’ strategies for success and innovators presenting the latest in plastics technologies. Bob Maughon, R&D vice president, Packaging and Specialty Plastics and Hydrocarbons, The Dow Chemical Company, will discuss sustainability as a catalyst for innovation in packaging. Don Thomson, president of The Center for Regenerative Design and Collaboration, will address turning plastic waste into building blocks.

The biodegradable polymers industry is affected by several major drivers in the environmental area: solid-waste disposal patterns, existing and potential legislation, and consumer attitudes and behavior. The evolution of these factors and their impact on the biodegradable polymers industry differ in each region of the world.

In the U.S., landfilling is the most common method of municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal. According to the U.S. EPA, landfill accounted for 53 percent of total MSW in 2014 (the most recent year for which data is available). Materials recycling accounted for 26 percent, and combustion with energy recovery at 13 percent were next in order of importance. Composting accounted for 9 percent of MSW disposal.

Composting has the potential to become a more important means of MSW disposal, especially for food waste and yard trimmings. According to the IHS Markit report, together, these two categories of waste accounted for 28 percent of U.S. MSW generation in 2014! In the case of yard trimmings, 31 percent of the waste generated was landfilled, while 61 percent was composted, and the remaining 8 percent was combusted with energy recovery.

Composting of plastics waste was negligible in 2014. Landfill was the primary method of disposal, responsible for 75 percent of plastics waste in the U.S. Combustion with energy recovery was 15 percent, and recycling accounted for 9 percent of the remainder.

“Biodegradable or compostable polymers can play a role in diverting waste from landfills. For example, biodegradable pods for single-serve coffee makers simplify disposal of used capsules; compostable trash bags can control odors, minimize mess, discourage pests, and otherwise reduce the “yuck” factor associated with residential composting programs,” Hackett said. “Diverting organic waste from landfill reduces emissions of methane—which is a potent greenhouse gas. We at IHS Markit expect biodegradable or compostable plastics will increasingly be an important part of the sustainability solution, but much of their advancement and adoption will depend on legislation as well as consumer attitudes and behavior.”

Concerns about plastic waste in the environment are contributing to demand for biodegradable polymers worldwide. In 2015, China’s Jilin Province issued a ban on non-biodegradable plastic bags and food service items, boosting bioplastics manufacturing in China. In addition to local policies, there are also favorable policies for biodegradable polymers at the national level.

In India, the biodegradable polymer market is still at a preliminary stage, with few players in the segment. However, India seems to be taking the lead in Asia as it relates to plastic bag bans, although enforcement is sometimes questionable. In 2012, the Delhi government issued an order imposing a ban on the use, storage, sale and manufacture of single-use plastic carrier (shopping) bags in the city. In other parts of the country, use of these bags is a finable offense, but despite this, change is, as of yet, barely visible on the ground. India has a significant challenge with plastic pollution and mismanaged municipal waste.

The major manufacturers of biodegradable polymers include NatureWorks (a joint venture of Cargill and PTT Global Chemical), Novamont, BASF, and PTT MCC Biochem Co., Ltd., a joint venture of PTT Public Company Ltd. (the parent of PTT Global Chemical) and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation.

In addition, TOTAL Corbion PLA, a joint venture of energy producer TOTAL and lactic-acid producer Corbion, plans to start up a world-scale polylactic-acid facility in Thailand by the end of 2018. The U.S. accounts for the bulk of production for these polymers, but Thailand, with its proximity to growing markets in Southeast Asia, its expanding bio-economy, favorable investment climate, stable government, and access to cost-effective sugarcane feedstocks for fermentation, is becoming an increasingly important contributor to the biodegradable polymers market, the IHS Markit report said.

According to the IHS Markit report entitled the Westlake Chemical Competitive Company Analysis, Westlake had reported revenue of $5.08 billion in 2016, Westlake was ranked in 66th place on theIHS Chemical Week “Billion Dollar Club 2017” list (ranking of chemical companies, by revenue), based on 2016 revenue.

“Westlake Chemical has traditionally been a major regional chemical producer in the U.S., but has diversified its portfolio through acquisition of Vinnolit (2014), and Axiall (2016),” said Mohit Sood, senior principal chemical analyst at IHS Markit and lead author of the IHS Markit Westlake competitive company report. “Additionally, the company has made timely investments in North American ethylene production by undertaking capacity additions, debottlenecking and feedstock conversion projects, which have allowed it to capitalize ethane feedstock availability in the region. This in turn, has ensured Westlake’s margin expansion along the vinyl’s chain.”

Sood said Westlake has the lowest ethylene cash-cost among major chemical producers, which is driving higher margins, and the company is strengthening its position as a market leader in the polyethylene and chlor-vinyl’s market.

Westlake solidified its position as a major chlor-vinyl producer with recent acquisitions of Axiall, a U.S. producer, and Vinnolit, a European producer. According to Sood, Westlake is experiencing robust revenue growth and has a largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels, which enables the company greater flexibility to take advantage of market opportunities and capture synergies, such as its recent acquisitions.”

The Axiall acquisition substantially increased the company’s product diversity along the chlorine chain, while the Vinnolit acquisition helped diversify and expand its operations to Europe, and provided access to critical vinyls technology, noted the IHS Markit report. This expansion is enabling Westlake to transition beyond commodity chemicals to the more profitable specialty PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) production, where Europe has a leading global position.

According to the IHS Markit analysis, Westlake is the leader in terms of (vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) production, it ranks second in terms of ethylene dichloride (EDC) and third globally in terms of both chlorine and caustic soda production. Westlake is the leader in terms of production capacity for low-density polyethylene (LDPE) in North America and is among the top five linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) producers in the United States. The company uses autoclave technology for LDPE production, which helps produce high-margin specialty polyethylene products.

However, Westlake has no high-density polyethylene (HDPE) production. The Axiall acquisition has enhanced the ethylene deficit for Westlake, but the company does have first rights to increase its ownership to 50 percent in the New Lake Charles, La. (U.S.) cracker project (with Lotte) within the first three years of completion.

“Westlake’s ethylene business is highly integrated into the polyolefins and chlor-vinyl’s chain,” said Steve Lewandowski, global business director of light olefins at IHS Markit. “Following the Axiall Corporation integration in 2016, the EDC integration for Westlake has increased from 0.5 million metric tons (MMT) per year to 1.4 MMT per year. This has enhanced the net-short ethylene position for Westlake in 2017, but we at IHS Markit expect this shortfall to moderate once the Lotte-Axiall cracker comes on stream in Lake Charles, in 2020, assuming the company significantly increases its stake in the project, as expected. Presently, the company is primarily reliant on third-party suppliers of ethylene for its U.S. and European operations.”

According to Lewandowski, Westlake continues in its strategic growth plan. “Westlake has focused on its ethylene-chain integration by debottlenecking existing assets, changing feed slate on another to an advantaged feedstock, and finally, through a merger, has taken an equity position in a green-field cracker build,” Lewandowski said. “With these changes, it has reduced the production of propylene, a non-core product. Westlake now has many options to consider—such as investing in additional backward integration to ethylene in the U.S., or taking a position in Europe on ethylene production to develop integration there.”

Westlake, in line with other ethylene producers in the U.S., has invested in various projects to benefit from the advantaged feedstock position in the region, said IHS Markit. Westlake completed its conversion of Calvert City, (La.) ethylene feedstock from 100 percent propane to 100 percent ethane in 2014. However, Westlake has the flexibility to process 100 percent propane in the event that the feedstock price scenario changes.

The company also completed ethylene capacity at Lake Charles, increasing capacity by 110,000 metric tons per year, and the company plans to increase Calvert City ethylene capacity by 30,000 metric tons per year by end 2017.

Westlake pursues a strategy of product concentration and vertical integration through acquisitions, expansions and modifications of existing plants, and new projects. With that in mind, Sood said, “the company is leveraging its pipeline connectivity across sites to capture synergies and improve operational efficiencies. Westlake has a 50 percent stake in a natural gas pipeline that supplies feedstocks to the Lake Charles, cracker site. This helps the company improve the long-term reliability of feedstock supply at the site and its North American portfolio concentration, to drive greater profitability. In addition, Westlake’s downstream integration into PVC-fabricated products offers higher value, specialty products.”

While the company continues to expand its position in the vinyl’s segment, Westlake’s olefins segment is more profitable that the vinyl’s segment. In 2016, the olefins segment contributed about 76 percent to the company’s total income from operations, while the vinyl’s segment contributed just 25 percent. This is in contrast with sales contributions from both the segment as sales from olefins segments contributed only 37 percent to the overall sales of the company, while vinyl’s segment contributes around 63 percent.

Westlake has witnessed a substantial increase in EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue since 2008. The company’s EBITDA percentage surged from 2 percent in 2008, to 30 percent in 2014, before returning to 20 percent level in 2016.

Aside from its ethylene deficit, which the company is addressing, the only other significant vulnerability for Westlake, IHS Markit said, is the company’s limited geographical diversification and continued heavy revenue dependence on North America, which makes it more susceptible than its peers to any volatility in the country’s economy.

Despite this, IHS Markit expects that continued North America chlor-alkali industry consolidation will aid remaining larger industry players like Westlake, which stand to benefit from prospective increased pricing power position. Additionally, the Minamata Convention on Mercury and its potential impact on the carbide-based PVC industry in China can open new market opportunities for export-focused U.S. vinyl producers, the IHS Markit report said. Westlake will also benefit from the improved vinyl’s operating rates during the next five years, which should boost the company’s margins.

The growing chlor-vinyl’s market will be a key focus of discussions at the upcoming IHS Markit 33nd Annual World Petrochemical Conference (WPC), March 19–24, 2018, at the Houston Hilton Americas Hotel. WPC is the premier annual international gathering of chemical industry leaders, experts, government officials and policymakers, as well as leaders from key end-use markets and technology innovators.

The Dow Chemical Company is a sponsor of the No. 3 Dow Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and a partner with Richard Childress Racing (RCR). Together they develop new technologies in the lab that are then tested by Dillon on the race track, ultimately speeding implementation in transportation technologies. Dillon’s historic win at the Daytona 500 demonstrates how the power of advanced materials, technology manufacturing and in-lab and on-track testing help drive the science of speed.

“Dow has been with me since the beginning of my Cup career – I’m very thankful for that and I’ll never forget it – and we just brought them a win,” Dillon said. “I said after my first win that nothing could beat it, but this does.”

Dow and RCR’s partnership has enabled scientists and engineers to test transportation systems and technologies in one of the most extreme operating environments – the race track – to ensure they deliver in the real world. Some of the solutions developed from this collaboration include sealants, carbon fiber and lubricants. These solutions that can make the difference between a winning and failing engine.

“Our partnership with Richard Childress Racing extends from the racetrack to the lab,” said Louis Vega, VP for Dow Olympic & Sports Solutions and president of Dow Australia & New Zealand. “We have been working collectively to develop the transportation technology to achieve this success, and we’re looking forward to the next win.”

The benefits of this collaboration at the intersection of sport and science extends beyond NASCAR to the transportation industry as a whole, with the ability to accelerate widespread technology and system adoption, auto manufacturers can meet evolving consumer and regulatory demands for passenger vehicles. On and off the track, Dow’s partnerships such as with RCR produce research and help drive the development of innovative solutions in the transportation market and beyond.

According to the IHS Markit report entitled the Westlake Chemical Competitive Company Analysis, Westlake had reported revenue of $5.08 billion in 2016, Westlake was ranked in 66th place on theIHS Chemical Week “Billion Dollar Club 2017” list (ranking of chemical companies, by revenue), based on 2016 revenue.

“Westlake Chemical has traditionally been a major regional chemical producer in the U.S., but has diversified its portfolio through acquisition of Vinnolit (2014), and Axiall (2016),” said Mohit Sood, senior principal chemical analyst at IHS Markit and lead author of the IHS Markit Westlake competitive company report. “Additionally, the company has made timely investments in North American ethylene production by undertaking capacity additions, debottlenecking and feedstock conversion projects, which have allowed it to capitalize ethane feedstock availability in the region. This in turn, has ensured Westlake’s margin expansion along the vinyl’s chain.”

Sood said Westlake has the lowest ethylene cash-cost among major chemical producers, which is driving higher margins, and the company is strengthening its position as a market leader in the polyethylene and chlor-vinyl’s market.

Westlake solidified its position as a major chlor-vinyl producer with recent acquisitions of Axiall, a U.S. producer, and Vinnolit, a European producer. According to Sood, Westlake is experiencing robust revenue growth and has a largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels, which enables the company greater flexibility to take advantage of market opportunities and capture synergies, such as its recent acquisitions.”

The Axiall acquisition substantially increased the company’s product diversity along the chlorine chain, while the Vinnolit acquisition helped diversify and expand its operations to Europe, and provided access to critical vinyls technology, noted the IHS Markit report. This expansion is enabling Westlake to transition beyond commodity chemicals to the more profitable specialty PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) production, where Europe has a leading global position.

According to the IHS Markit analysis, Westlake is the leader in terms of (vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) production, it ranks second in terms of ethylene dichloride (EDC) and third globally in terms of both chlorine and caustic soda production. Westlake is the leader in terms of production capacity for low-density polyethylene (LDPE) in North America and is among the top five linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) producers in the United States. The company uses autoclave technology for LDPE production, which helps produce high-margin specialty polyethylene products.

However, Westlake has no high-density polyethylene (HDPE) production. The Axiall acquisition has enhanced the ethylene deficit for Westlake, but the company does have first rights to increase its ownership to 50 percent in the New Lake Charles, La. (U.S.) cracker project (with Lotte) within the first three years of completion.

“Westlake’s ethylene business is highly integrated into the polyolefins and chlor-vinyl’s chain,” said Steve Lewandowski, global business director of light olefins at IHS Markit. “Following the Axiall Corporation integration in 2016, the EDC integration for Westlake has increased from 0.5 million metric tons (MMT) per year to 1.4 MMT per year. This has enhanced the net-short ethylene position for Westlake in 2017, but we at IHS Markit expect this shortfall to moderate once the Lotte-Axiall cracker comes on stream in Lake Charles, in 2020, assuming the company significantly increases its stake in the project, as expected. Presently, the company is primarily reliant on third-party suppliers of ethylene for its U.S. and European operations.”

According to Lewandowski, Westlake continues in its strategic growth plan. “Westlake has focused on its ethylene-chain integration by debottlenecking existing assets, changing feed slate on another to an advantaged feedstock, and finally, through a merger, has taken an equity position in a green-field cracker build,” Lewandowski said. “With these changes, it has reduced the production of propylene, a non-core product. Westlake now has many options to consider—such as investing in additional backward integration to ethylene in the U.S., or taking a position in Europe on ethylene production to develop integration there.”

Westlake, in line with other ethylene producers in the U.S., has invested in various projects to benefit from the advantaged feedstock position in the region, said IHS Markit. Westlake completed its conversion of Calvert City, (La.) ethylene feedstock from 100 percent propane to 100 percent ethane in 2014. However, Westlake has the flexibility to process 100 percent propane in the event that the feedstock price scenario changes.

The company also completed ethylene capacity at Lake Charles, increasing capacity by 110,000 metric tons per year, and the company plans to increase Calvert City ethylene capacity by 30,000 metric tons per year by end 2017.

Westlake pursues a strategy of product concentration and vertical integration through acquisitions, expansions and modifications of existing plants, and new projects. With that in mind, Sood said, “the company is leveraging its pipeline connectivity across sites to capture synergies and improve operational efficiencies. Westlake has a 50 percent stake in a natural gas pipeline that supplies feedstocks to the Lake Charles, cracker site. This helps the company improve the long-term reliability of feedstock supply at the site and its North American portfolio concentration, to drive greater profitability. In addition, Westlake’s downstream integration into PVC-fabricated products offers higher value, specialty products.”

While the company continues to expand its position in the vinyl’s segment, Westlake’s olefins segment is more profitable that the vinyl’s segment. In 2016, the olefins segment contributed about 76 percent to the company’s total income from operations, while the vinyl’s segment contributed just 25 percent. This is in contrast with sales contributions from both the segment as sales from olefins segments contributed only 37 percent to the overall sales of the company, while vinyl’s segment contributes around 63 percent.

Westlake has witnessed a substantial increase in EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue since 2008. The company’s EBITDA percentage surged from 2 percent in 2008, to 30 percent in 2014, before returning to 20 percent level in 2016.

Aside from its ethylene deficit, which the company is addressing, the only other significant vulnerability for Westlake, IHS Markit said, is the company’s limited geographical diversification and continued heavy revenue dependence on North America, which makes it more susceptible than its peers to any volatility in the country’s economy.

Despite this, IHS Markit expects that continued North America chlor-alkali industry consolidation will aid remaining larger industry players like Westlake, which stand to benefit from prospective increased pricing power position. Additionally, the Minamata Convention on Mercury and its potential impact on the carbide-based PVC industry in China can open new market opportunities for export-focused U.S. vinyl producers, the IHS Markit report said. Westlake will also benefit from the improved vinyl’s operating rates during the next five years, which should boost the company’s margins.

The growing chlor-vinyl’s market will be a key focus of discussions at the upcoming IHS Markit 33nd Annual World Petrochemical Conference (WPC), March 19–24, 2018, at the Houston Hilton Americas Hotel. WPC is the premier annual international gathering of chemical industry leaders, experts, government officials and policymakers, as well as leaders from key end-use markets and technology innovators.
