Polylactic Acid (PLA) Market to Grow at a CAGR of 15.9%, Globally, by 2020

 
 

quote Packaging is the most prominent end use and accounted for about half of the PLA revenues in 2014. The eco-friendly properties of PLA based material and its great potential for short-lifespan packaging majorly supplements the uptake of polylactic acid. Governments imposing ban on conventional fossil fuel-based plastic bags and providing incentives for bio-based PLA production are also providing additional growth thrusts. quote

Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable and compostable thermoplastic produced from fermentable sugar available in various renewable sources, such as corn starch, sugarcane, tapioca roots and wheat. Easy availability of low cost raw material would drive the market growth. Furthermore, increasing popularity of newer applications (like coated cellophane, agricultural mulching, non-woven fibers, and active packaging among others) across various end user industries such as food and beverage packaging, agriculture, electronics, textiles, Bio medical and others would open new growth avenues in the global polylactic acid market. However, factors such as high production cost, need for industrial composting, popularity of competing alternatives for renewable packaging such as Bio- PE, PHA, and Bio-PET would impede the PLA market growth.
