Polylactic acid or PLA is mainly manufactured through two different processes, namely, condensation and polymerization. It is derived from biomass like sugarcane or corn starch and is therefore known as bioplastics. Polylactic acids find wide applicability in plastic films, bottles, and medical devices. Production of polylactic acid represents cost-efficient and non-petroleum plastic production. Polylactic acid is increasingly being used as an alternative for oil-based products due to environmental concerns and scarcity and volatile prices of fossil fuel.


Global polylactic acid market is expected to witness high growth in the forecast period owing to governmental policies favoring bio-plastics coupled with growing demands for bio-plastic packaging. Moreover, the demands for cellulose-derived fibers in the textile industry propel the polylactic acid market growth. However, difficult disposal of PLA, price competitiveness, and availability of cheaper alternatives hinder the market growth. The market is likely to showcase growth opportunities for the untapped markets of 3D printing and growing production of GM crops during the forecast period.
