Polylactic acid, a biodegradable polymer sourced from renewable materials like corn starch or sugarcane, has gained considerable traction as a substitute for conventional petroleum-based plastics. The increasing call for eco-conscious alternatives, alongside a heightened focus on curbing carbon emissions, has driven the market’s advancement.


Increasing Demand for Sustainable Packaging Boosts Global Market Growth

As global awareness of environmental issues grows, both consumers and businesses are actively pursuing sustainable alternatives to conventional packaging materials. This transition stems from worries regarding the ecological consequences of non-biodegradable plastics and the aim to diminish the environmental impact linked with packaging.

Due to its biodegradable nature, polylactic acid naturally decomposes over time, reducing the buildup of plastic waste in landfills and oceans. Furthermore, its renewable sourcing helps decrease reliance on finite fossil resources, aligning with the overarching objectives of sustainable and circular economies.

Corn: Key Raw Material (2024-2032)

Corn-based polylactic acid presents numerous environmental benefits. Corn is a renewable resource, and its cultivation promotes the idea of a closed carbon cycle. The carbon dioxide absorbed by corn during its growth offsets the emissions generated during polylactic acid production, rendering it a carbon-neutral material.

North America to Capture Highest Revenue Share by 2032

North America’s polylactic acid (PLA) market is primed for substantial expansion, propelled by various factors fueling the rising need for sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. Both the United States and Canada have experienced a surge in regulations and initiatives advocating for sustainable packaging practices, which, in turn, stimulates the uptake of polylactic acid within the packaging industry.

Furthermore, some of the eminent companies operating in the global market include BASF, Danimer Scientific, Dow Chemicals, etc.
