A recent study on expected sustainable packaging growth reveals that 43 percent of surveyed companies plan on using bio-based materials within the next three to five years. At present, only 31 percent of respondents are using bio-based materials for sustainable packaging.
Only 14 percent of companies surveyed said they did not plan on making this change. The other 43 percent  had not yet decided whether or not to use bio-based materials.
The top three interests in creating bio-based packaging were to minimize environmental impact, positively contribute to marketing messaging, and consumer expectations. The top three reasons for not using them were expense, lack of availability, and performance issues compared with conventional materials.
