Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a neutral impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increasing demand for biodegradable plastics is notably driving the PHA market growth, although factors such as the cost-effectiveness of conventional plastics over PHAs may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the polyhydroxyalkanoate industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market Driver

The use of biodegradable plastics in numerous applications, such as packaging and domestic goods, has encouraged plastic manufacturers to reduce their over-dependence on petroleum-based plastic products. Hence, plastic manufacturers are using eco-friendly raw materials such as PHAs, which are biodegradable and thermoplastic in nature. The use of PHAs in these applications has encouraged plastic manufacturers to use bio-based plastics. Raw materials used in biodegradable plastic production are renewable in origin, and the supply is abundant as compared to petroleum and fossil raw materials across the globe. Therefore, the global outlook for bio-based raw materials for plastics is significantly high when it is compared to that of petroleum-based raw materials. Hence, the increasing demand for bioplastics across the globe will drive the demand for PHAs during the forecast period

Key Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market Trend

The growth in plastic waste across the globe has led to the enforcement of stringent regulations on the use of plastics. As a result, consumers increasingly prefer eco-friendly plastic products. Moreover, with the growing necessity to reduce plastic waste across the globe, governments in developed and developing countries are taking numerous initiatives. Such initiatives will drive the demand for PHA-based bioplastics during the forecast period. The rising plastic packaging waste production across the globe has forced vendors to consume more green packaging labels as a strategy for branding as well as customer acquisition. The increasing acceptance of sustainable packaging and green products by consumers will drive the global bioplastics market, which will support the growth of the global PHA market during the forecast period.

Key Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market Challenge

One of the biggest challenges for the global PHA market is the cost-competitive inability of PHAs over conventional plastics. The high price of PHA is mainly attributed to the high polymerization cost of PHAs as most of the processes are still in the development stage, and therefore, the production of PHAs has not achieved an economy of scale. The lack of efficient technologies and the unavailability of feedstock are increasing the production cost of PHAs. The rising prices of renewables raw materials, such as glucose, used for manufacturing PHAs are also hindering the market's growth. The high price of PHAs is likely to hinder their adoption as consumers will switch to cheaper conventional resins. Hence, high production costs because of small-scale production by vendors, high R&D costs incurred by vendors, and a substantial price difference between PHAs and conventional petroleum-based products are hindering the demand for PHAs during the forecast period. 

This polyhydroxyalkanoate market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2020-2024.
