"Governments across the globe have been instrumental in imposing ban on the
use of fossil fuel-based products such as plastic bags and are also providing
incentives for bio-based PLA production. Moreover, the rising petrochemical
prices in association with growing awareness for environment safety have been
the prime contributors towards the growth of Polylactic Acid market" state AMR
analysts Sarah Clark and Ranjan Singh. "The ongoing research on reinforcement
of PLA with other materials would bring opportunities for PLA with much
improved products in future." add the analysts.

Low-cost and easy availability of raw materials are key factors that are
contributing to the cost-effectiveness of PLA. The production costs are
however, expected to further reduce with research focused on identifying
alternative sources of raw materials. On the contrary, certain restraining
factors too exist which will restrain the growth of PLA market. "Need for
industrial composting to completely degrade PLA, will act as an important
restraint" said Clark and Singh.
