Report Code: ZMR-3871 | Report Format : | Status : Upcoming |


Global Polylactic Acid (PLA) Market: Overview

Polylacticacid  (PLA) is a biodegradable as well as bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, cassava roots, chips, or starch (mostly in Asia), or sugarcane (in the rest of the world). In 2010, PLA had the second highest consumption volume of any bioplastic of the world.

Global Polylactic Acid (PLA) Market: Growth Factors

Massive use of PLA in creams, shampoos, and body care products on account of its various properties, including enhancing skin lightening effects as well as accelerating exfoliation and cell renewal will drive the Polylacticacid (PLA) market trends over the years ahead. Furthermore, the odor barrier features and flavor will steer the growth of the Polylacticacid (PLA) market in the years to come. In addition, the use of the product in manufacturing plastic bottles and films and medical implants such as screws, plates, pins, and rods will further boost the business scope over the coming years. Massive use of the product in shopping bags and disposable cutlery will further boost the Polylacticacid (PLA) market size in the coming years.

Rising consumer awareness with respect to the need for recyclability, green packaging, and sustainability is likely to drive consumption of PLA over the next few years, thereby enlarging the scope of the business in the near future.
