Global Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) for packaging – Market Overview:
Plastic is one of the best packaging solutions for the packaging of food and other goods rather than other packaging solutions. The severe supervisory changes by several governments across the globe for decrease the usage of plastic has augmented the inclination of manufacturer towards the biodegradable plastics. This type of plastic is environmentally friendly and produced by the bacterial fermentation of lipids or sugar. Polyhydroxyalkanoates are gaining attention in the biodegradable polymers market due to their influence properties such as high biodegradability in different environments, not just in composting plants. Polyhydroxyalkanoates are used in the various application including packaging of food & beverages, cosmetics, bio-medical application and agricultural films among others. The global biodegradable plastics market is undesirably affected by the high cost of the invention of biodegradable plastics. The huge difference between the prices of biodegradable plastics and conventional plastics has negatively affected the polyhydroxyalkanoates market. Furthermore, the necessity of skillful labour, which is a challenge in emerging countries, has also restrained the global polyhydroxyalkanoates market in the near future.
Global Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) for packaging – Market Dynamics:
There are several reasons which contribute to the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoates market. One of the significant reason which plays an important role in the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoates market is raising awareness among the consumer towards the environment protection. In addition, government regulations against the use of conventional plastic and tax relevance in the biodegradable industry may be the reason towards the inclination of the manufacturer. One of the major drivers of the global polyhydroxyalkanoates market is the fact that many manufacturers are now considering a shift in preference for biodegradable plastics, rather than plastics. This is attributed to increasing awareness among manufacturers regarding the disadvantages of plastics. Higher costs of polyhydroxyalkanoates as compared to conventional polymers are expected to hamper the growth of the market. Emphasis on minimizing the production costs of polyhydroxyalkanoates is expected to be a new opportunity for the growth of the market in the near future.
