Polylactic Acid is a polyester derived from natural resources such as corn starch or starch or sugarcane. PLA Packaging is a bioplastic form of packaging which is bio-degradable and can be decomposed. The vast industrialization results in the generation of abundant amount of waste generation which resulted in an increase in carbon footprints. Thus, the practices to reduce waste generation and carbon footprint has been employed by the industries and government over the last few years and PLA Packaging is the result of these efforts. The major usage of PLA Packaging is in the food & beverage and cosmetics products. As the food & beverage products, demand is increasing due to the increase in the number of consumers, it is expected that the PLA Packaging market is expected to grow substantially during the forecast period.
Other properties of the PLA Packaging material are that they are lightweight, produce fewer greenhouse gases during the production, durable, and easy to handle during the transportation and logistics operation. Polymer materials are derived from petroleum which prices fluctuate continuously and PLA Packaging is the efficient alternatives to such packaging material.
