The EU CBD Markets

This chapter presents the market values of all CBD subsegments in each EU Member State. Market valuations are based on consumer preferences specific to each Member State. The total EU CBD market value is € 1.6 billion in 2020 increasing to €8.7 billion in 2030. Particular focus is paid to the large markets of Germany and the UK.

Hemp plastics

Hemp plastics are discussed in this report from the perspective of the automotive industry. This market is valued at € 29 million in 2020, increasing by a third to € 44 million in 2030. Estimated are based on growth in the sales of EU-manufactured cars and the discussion around use of plant-based bioplastics in the replacement of plastics.

Hemp wool insulation

This chapter presents market valuations of the hemp home insulation market. The market is valued at € 13 million in 2020, nearly doubling to € 24 million by 2025. Further rapid growth may be limited by the technical limitations of hemp-based insulation relative to mineral wool and rockwool.

Hemp concrete

This chapter discusses use of hemp-based concrete known as hempcrete. The market is valued at € 1.5 million in 2020. Though a niche segment, the market could double in size by 2030 based on the growth of the last ten years.


The appendix provides some reference information relating to the CBD market valuations by Member State.
