The factors that are currently impacting the PLA market currently are awareness on environment safety, increasing price of substitutes and raw materials of substitutes such as petrochemicals. Government across the globe have imposed ban on the use of plastic bags and also provide incentives for PLA production process. This has encouraged the shift towards PLA production. Additionally the petrochemicals that are major raw material for conventional plastics are significantly increasing therefore; the manufacturers are looking for effective substitutes.

The conventional polymers are not biodegradable and lead plastic waste that remain in the soil for thousand or more years. Industrial composting enables degradability of PLA. However, the fact remains that it also takes several years for PLA to be bio degraded in normal conditions.

This market research report is an effort to provide the clear picture of the state of the market and sub markets over the next seven years. The report provides micro level analysis of the factors affecting the market, key market trends and industry drives and challenges for the better understanding of the market structure. The presentation of the market dynamics, competitive scenario and developments will enable marketers to aptly design their growth strategies and have competitive edge.
