Moreover, North America, on the basis of production, is a significant region owing to the availability of raw materials.

 

Polylactic Acid (PLA): Industry Definition and Segmentation

Polylactic acid (PLA), a thermoplastic aliphatic polymer, has a chemical formula (C3H4O2)n. This acid is a semi-crystalline and biodegradable hydrophobic polymer, which has a good mechanical strength. The product is compostable, which means it can be broken down under certain conditions into biodegradable components, making it an ideal material for packaging across different industries like food and beverages and consumer products.

On the basis of end use, the market is divided into:

  • Packaging
  • Agriculture
  • Textile
  • Automobiles
  • Electronics
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Rising Demand for Bioplastic to Aid the Market Growth of Polylactic Acid (PLA)

The market growth for polylactic acid (PLA) is being driven by the rising demand for bioplastic. Further, the government is implementing initiatives and offering subsidies, and assistance for the rising usage of biodegradable products. In addition, pollution control and environment safety are the significant drivers leading more stakeholders to turn towards bioplastic usage instead of the conventional plastic synthesised from petroleum. The market is also aided by the technological advancements, high consumer demand from the developing economies, and technological transfer from developed economies as they contribute to the growth of textiles, packaging, and electronics industries, which use polylactic acid in the production process.
