Polylactic Acid (PLA) is thermoplastic polyester derived from renewable feedstock such as corn starch, sugarcane, wheat, tapioca roots. PLA has wide application such as in Packaging, Textile, Agriculture, Transportation, Bio-Medical and Electronics industry. Due to environmental concerns and scarcity & volatility of prices of fossil fuels, many companies and government regulatory bodies are focusing to find substitute to oil-based products. Moreover, bio based plastics has huge potential to reduce the consumption and dependency on petroleum based feedstock and lessen negative impact on environment by reducing carbon footprints. Thus, PLA has emerged mainly as source of biodegradable plastics available in the market in recent years. Furthermore, ongoing research and technical development in the field of bio-based plastics have enhanced their properties such as high temperature resistance, thus increasing scope of its application market. The global Polylactic Acid market is presently facing supply crunch as few international manufacturers trying hard to meet rapidly rising demand for bio-based plastics. Thus, it is anticipated that the global Polylactic Acid market will grow at a double digit growth rate.
Low-cost and easy availability of raw materials are important factors that are contributing to the cost-effectiveness of PLA. The production costs are however, expected to further reduce with research focused on identifying alternative sources of raw materials. On the contrary, certain restraining factors too exist which will restrain the growth of PLA market. Need for industrial composting to completely degrade PLA, will act as an important restraint said Clark and Singh.
