Bio-Polylactic Acid (PLA) Films Market to Reach USD 1552.92 Million by 2032; Rising Demand from the Packaging Industry to Propel Growth


The global bio-polylactic acid (PLA) films market size is anticipated to grow from USD 500 million to USD 1552.92 million in 10 years. The market will experience rapid growth during the forecast period due to favourable government regulations encouraging using biopolylactic acid films.

Newark, Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 500 million in 2022 global bio-polylactic acid (PLA) films market will reach USD 1552.92 million in 2032. Lactic acid CHCOOH condenses to produce polylactic acid, a thermoplastic polyester. PLA is derived from renewable, organic materials like sugar cane or maize starch. It is a semi-crystalline, glassy, amorphous polymer. PLA offers a great deal of industrial application potential. Because of its unique properties, PLA can be utilized to create biodegradable bottles, plastic film, and medical equipment. It also functions well as a shrink-wrap material. The requirement for bio-polylactic acid (PLA) films will be driven by the food and beverage industry’s growing need for food packaging for long-term preservation.

Market Dynamics

Driver: The packaging industry’s growing need for bio-polylactic acid films.

Due to a larger population and rising disposable income, the demand for packaged goods has expanded, ranging from foods and beverages to personal care and household items. Over the past few years, the pharmaceutical business has likewise experienced exponential growth. Given the two-year pandemic era, there has been a notable increase in online delivery and e-commerce platforms. The demand for packaging has expanded due to all these industry trends, which will fuel the expansion of the global bio-polylactic Market.

Restraints: high costs of bio-PLA films.

The high price of bio-polylactic acid films even though they are an environmentally benign, biodegradable, and sustainable packaging material. However, the cost of making these films is far more than that of packaging solutions made of synthetic materials or fossil fuels, which will restrict the Market’s expansion.

Opportunities: Government regulations.

The growing worries about environmental degradation and climate change necessitate adjustments to policies that support ecologically friendly and sustainable practices, processes, and goods. Government authorities are pushing the usage of bio-polylactic acid films across sectors since they are ideal and compliant with such rules. Therefore, throughout the projected period, the Market’s expansion will be driven by the strict laws supporting the implementation of bio-polylactic acid films.

Challenges: Underdeveloped Technological.

The technology to produce or manufacture bio-polylactic films is still underdeveloped or at its nascent stages, which increases the production costs and, therefore, the retail prices of these products. The lack of technological advancement to produce or enhance bio-polylactic films to widen their applications will likely challenge the Market’s growth during the forecast period.
