Sugarcane Raw Material Segment To Remain Highly Lucrative Followed By Corn Raw Material Segment
Sugarcane raw material is expected to be the leading segment of the global polylactic acid (PLA) market during the forecast period, owing to the owing to the increasing penetration of polylactic acid (PLA) in various industries such as food and beverages, personal care and manufacturing. Raw sugar extricated from sugarcane or sugar beet, is one of the primary feedstock used to produce lactic acids and its derivatives, thereby increasing the demand for sugarcane raw materials in lactic acid products. Sugarcane-based lactic acid is evaluated to witness high growth due to various improvement activities taken for manufacturing of bioplastics and biochemical produced using supportable feedstock. For istance, the Institute for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (IFBB) and Wageningen University and Research Center (WUR) analyzed and investigated the information for crop yields, whose feedstock is capable for creating biomaterials. However, the most common nutrients required for the production of the lactic acid products is yeast extract, and is associated with high production cost. Hence, as an alternative, corn steep liquor (CSL) is used, resulting in increasing the demand for corn raw material. On the other side, food & beverages segment is anticipated to grow at highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the growing penetration of lactic acid in the poultry, meat and seafood industries in order to enhance product ability to enhance flavors and increase life span.
The Adoption Of Polylactic Acid (PLA) Products In Personal Care Applications To Boost Up The Overall Growth Of The Market
Growing introduction of sophisticated and innovative personal care products is expected to boost the growth of the polylactic products. Rejuvenating, moisturizing and antimicrobial properties of the polylactic acid is acting as a helping factor for the growth of the overall market. Due to ongoing development in science and technology, the polylactic acid (PLA) market is projected to expand at rapid pace over the forecast period.
North America To Continue To Hold Largest Share In The Overall Market
Geographically, the global polylactic acid (PLA) market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa. North America accounted for largest market share in 2017 due to the technological advancements in pharmaceutical and food industries and introduction of innovative skin care products. North America is anticipated to grow at significant CAGR over the forecast period. This is due to the rising consumption of biodegradable polymers and growing composting infrastructure.
