olylactic acid (PLA) is a bio-degradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polymer produced from lactic acid using various crops like corn, sugarcane, tapioca, etc. as a raw material. Polylactic acid is prepared by direct condensation of lactic acid monomers. It can also be prepared by ring-opening polymerization of lactide, with various metal catalysts in solution, melt, or suspension.

Polylactic acid demand is expected to increase, due to the scarcity and volatility of prices of fossil fuels. Bio-based plastics have the potential to reduce consumption and dependence on petroleum-based feedstock, and lessen the negative impact on the environment, by reducing carbon footprints.

Based on the application, the market has been segmented into Packaging, Agriculture, Electronics, Textiles, and Bio-Medical. The packaging industry captures a major share of the application. Polylactic acid is preferred in the food packaging industry due to increasing awareness about environmental concerns possess by the use of conventional plastics packaging.

The textile industry is one of the important sectors with high growth and penetration rate of polylactic acid as it offers smooth 7 pleasant fabrics. In addition, increased usage of plastic in cosmetic products and their packaging is fueling the market demand for Polylactic acid.

Factors majorly driving the global market demand are: Increasing use of Polylactic acid in personal care products (creams, shampoos, and other body care products), and growing consumer awareness about sustainability, recyclability, and green packaging is expected to drive the market.

The problems such as fluctuating crude oil prices and limited fossil fuel resources contribute to the rising demand as plastics are mostly manufactured using resources. Increasing consumer awareness, government incentives, and easy availability of raw materials are the major factors driving the market growth. The market faces few challenges, such as price competitiveness and availability of cheaper alternatives, and difficulty in the disposal of Polylactic acid.

North America is the largest consumer market for Polylactic acid & expected to dominate the global Polylactic acid market in terms of the revenue generated. The Asia-Pacific will be the fastest-growing market during this period. In China, raw materials are found in abundance; thus manufacturers can take advantage of this to make a profit. Furthermore, the European polylactic acid market is also expected to be the prospective growth market for the forecast period.
