Press Release

Global Polylactic Acid Market to be dominated by utilization of polylactic acid in agriculture industry through 2028.

Growing demand of polylactic acid in textile industry and initiatives taken by the government to support the production of polylactic acid are the major drivers for the Global Polylactic Acid Market.

According to TechSci Research report, “Polylactic acid Market –Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028”, the Global Polylactic Acid Market stood at USD 692.34 million in 2022 and is anticipated to register a high CAGR of 11.53% during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to collaborations and partnerships among leading companies with a diverse approach to merge the expertise of individual companies and to strengthen their position in the market.

Polylactic Acid (PLA), a bio-based and biodegradable polymer derived from renewable sources, has emerged as a sustainable powerhouse that is reshaping various sectors, including agriculture. With its exceptional properties and eco-friendly profile, PLA is driving transformative changes in agriculture practices around the world, propelling the global PLA market to new heights. Traditionally, plastic mulch films have been used to enhance soil quality and protect crops. PLA mulch films provide a sustainable alternative. These biodegradable films break down into harmless components, eliminating the need for time-consuming and costly removal after harvest. PLA-based erosion control products, such as bio-blankets and mats, are gaining traction. These products stabilize soil and protect it from erosion caused by wind and water.

PLA's biodegradability ensures that these products degrade naturally over time, leaving behind enriched soil. PLA-based biodegradable coatings can be applied to seeds, enhancing their germination rates and protecting them from pests. These coatings break down naturally, reducing the use of harmful chemicals in agriculture. Moreover, greenhouses play a pivotal role in modern agriculture by extending growing seasons and protecting crops. PLA greenhouse films provide a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic films. They offer UV protection and temperature regulation while being biodegradable and compostable. PLA is biodegradable under controlled conditions, offering a solution to the textile industry's persistent issue of synthetic fiber waste. While conventional synthetic textiles contribute to microplastic pollution, PLA-based textiles break down into harmless components when properly composted. PLA fibers can be engineered to match the performance of conventional synthetic fibers. They exhibit qualities such as moisture-wicking, breathability, and durability, ensuring that consumers don't need to compromise comfort or functionality for sustainability.

Furthermore, by utilizing PLA in textiles, brands and manufacturers can significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with their products. This resonates with the global trend of carbon footprint reduction and drives the adoption of PLA textiles. To incentivize the adoption of sustainable materials like PLA, governments offer subsidies and grants to companies engaged in PLA production. These financial incentives offset the initial costs associated with transitioning from traditional plastics to PLA-based products, making them more economically viable for businesses. Such support encourages manufacturers to embrace PLA, boosting its production and usage across sectors. Government agencies are leading by example by incorporating PLA-based products into their procurement policies. By prioritizing the purchase of eco-friendly and sustainable materials, governments provide a significant market pull for PLA products. Research collaborations play a pivotal role in advancing the PLA industry's technical know-how. From improving PLA's mechanical properties and processing techniques to enhancing its compatibility with various applications, collaborative research is accelerating innovation cycles.

In 2022, SEOUL, South Korea and CHICAGO- - (BUSINESS WIRE)- - LG Chem , a main worldwide expanded synthetic organization, and ADM , a worldwide forerunner in nourishment and biosolutions, held a marking function sending off two joint endeavors for U.S. creation of lactic corrosive and polylactic corrosive to satisfy developing need for a wide assortment of plant-based items, including bioplastics. The primary joint endeavor, GreenWise Lactic, would deliver as much as 150,000 tons of high-virtue corn-based lactic corrosive every year. ADM would be the larger part proprietor of GreenWise, and would contribute maturation limit from its Decatur bioproducts office to the endeavor. The subsequent joint endeavor, LG Chem Illinois Biochem, would be greater part claimed by LG Chem. It would expand upon LG Chem's skill in bioplastics to fabricate an office that will utilize item from GreenWise Lactic to create roughly 75,000 tons of polylactic corrosive (PLA) each year.

However, lack of composting infrastructure and complexities associated with production of polylactic acid are expected to slow down the growth of the market in the coming years.
