Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Overview

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market size is forecast to reach $736.2 million by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 14.1% during 2021-2026. Bio-based materials are increasingly being used as food packaging materials due to its advantages over fossil-based plastics, such as the use of renewable resources in their manufacture and, in many cases, the finished product's biodegradability & compostability, offering an alternative to landfill disposal. The bio- polylactic Acid (PLA) films market is driven by positive growth indications in the food and beverage industry, as well as an increase in demand for food packaging for long-term preservation. Furthermore, the fast adoption of these films as a synthetic plastic in agricultural applications, such as soft fruit and vegetable growing has minimized negative environmental impacts, resulting in market growth. Similarly, the production of environmentally friendly films, combined with government support, and technological breakthroughs such as Multilayer films and atomic layer deposition (ALD) could present a lucrative potential for market participants in the near future.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, various countries are under shut down owing to which the market is witnessing a period of low demand from its end-use industries such as packaging, and agriculture. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the operations of various industries, as most of the countries have issued “stay at home guidance” i.e., lockdown. As bio- polylactic Acid (PLA) films are utilized in these industries, the declining operation of these industries is directly limiting its market growth during the pandemic. According to the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) projections, the Chinese GDP growth declined to 1.9% in 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

Packaging industry held the largest share in the Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. It is utilized in food and beverage packaging systems that require performance features such as compostability, such as form-fill-seal yogurt containers or coffee capsules. Because of its use in fruit and vegetable packaging in supermarkets, bread bags and bakery boxes, bottles, envelopes, and display carton windows, and shopping or carrier bags, among other things, the food packaging sector dominated the global market share. Furthermore, worries about hygiene and food safety have risen to the top of the global priority list in the wake of the pandemic. The COVID-19 is progressively affecting companies that help fulfill critical necessities, such as transferring food and needed supplies to consumers safely, because the packaging industry is a significant participant. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2018, the total value of all retail food and beverage sales in Japan was $479.29 billion (¥53,339 billion), an overall increase of 2.3 percent. Thus, increasing food production will require more packaging material, thus acts as a driver for the market during the forecast period.

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia Pacific dominated the Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films market in 2020 with a share of 35%. Due to growing urbanization, the economy of APAC is largely influenced by the economic dynamics of nations such as China and India. People's lifestyles are constantly changing as a result of rapid urbanization. People in cities have embraced a more modern way of life, which has resulted in an increase in the usage of bio-polylactic acid films as a premium product for a variety of home uses, including packaging. Factors such as the rising need for plastic packaging, faster electronic product manufacturing, rise in digital printing, rising food and grocery retail sales, and the expansion of the pharmaceutical industry are all driving rapid urbanization, therefore bio-polylactic acid (PLA) films market in this region is seeing increased demand. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), retail sales of grain, oil, and food reached 499.63 billion yuan (about $70.41 billion), up 13.8 percent from last year in China. During the period, beverage sales stood at 63.46 billion yuan in China, a 6.3-percent growth year-on-year. With the increasing retail sale, the demand for packaging materials will also see an upsurge in its demand. According to the Sea-Circular Organization, the packaging industry in China is projected to record a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.5 percent during the forecast period (2020-2025) retail thereby, accelerating the growth of the bio-polylactic acid (PLA) films in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Drivers

Growing Demand from Food Packaging Industry

Bio-based materials are increasingly being used as food packaging materials due to their advantages over fossil-based plastics, such as the use of renewable resources in their manufacture and, in many cases, the finished product's biodegradability and/or compostability, which provides an alternative to landfill disposal. Polylactic acid is the most common bio-based plastic made from a bio-based monomer. PLA is an aliphatic polyester made by lactic acid polymerization (2-hydroxypropionic acid). Bio-PLA films can hold creases or twists, which is a characteristic not found in most plastic films. PLA's physical qualities make it an excellent candidate to replace fossil-based plastics in a variety of applications, including low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) (PET). The bio-PLA business is driven by positive growth indications in the food and beverage industry, as well as an increase in demand for food packaging for long-term preservation. The market for food packaging will grow dramatically as the food sector grows. For instance, in 2018, Canada's overall food and beverage industry revenue hit $87 billion, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Russia has the eighth largest market for packaged food goods, with a trading volume of 27.5 million tonnes, according to the International Trade Administration (ITA). In 2018, total processed food production in Ukraine was $15 billion, and processed food exports amounted to $9.4 billion, representing 50% of Ukraine's agricultural products and processed food exports. The packaging material production industry accounted for 1.7 percent of Mexico's GDP in 2017, 5.8 percent of GDP in the industrial sector, and 8.5 percent of GDP in manufacturing. This in turn is driving Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films demand. 

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Challenges

High Cost Compared to Synthetic Films

The global bio-PLA film market is likely to be restrained during the projected period due to higher costs of bio-PLA films compared to synthetic and semi-synthetic films. In addition, the product's low vapor barrier and mechanical qualities may limit the industry's future expansion. Therefore, the market for bio-plastic acid (PLA) films is expected to be hampered by the rising demand for alternatives such as synthetic films due to their low cost.

Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market. Major players in the Bio-polylactic Acid (PLA) Films market includes NatureWorks LLC, Futerro, Tale & Lyle, Total Corbion PLA, Hiusan Biosciences, Toray Industries, Inc., Taghleef Industries, Amcor Ltd. Toyobo, and Avery Dennison Corporation among others.
