According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Market by Technology and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023, the global bio-PLA films market was valued at $354 million in 2016, and is estimated to reach $910 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 14.5% from 2017 to 2023. In 2016, the multilayer segment accounted for more than half of the share of overall bio-PLA films market.

Access Full Summary at:

PLA is a bioplastic generally derived from animal feed corn that can be used for different purposes, including cold drink cups, deli and takeout containers, and fresh produce packaging. These films are also used to wrap organic food and premium & branded products. Furthermore, enhanced usage of these films in food packaging as an alternative to polypropylene and favorable governmental regulations for non-hazardous food packaging materials are expected to boost the market growth.

Rapid adoption of these films as a synthetic plastic in agricultural applications, such as cultivation of soft fruits and vegetables, has decreased harsh environmental impacts. Moreover, growth in end-user industries, such as home & personal care, medical and food industry, and increase in consumer spending power in developing countries augments the market growth. Furthermore, rapid utilization of these films is due to their low value-added properties such as negligible toxicity and bio-compatibility. However, variable product prices in comparison with existing counterparts and critical issues associated with these films, such as low thermal resistance and low impact resistance, are expected to restrain the market growth.
