Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market Insights:

Polyhydroxyalkanoate market was valued at USD 83.2 Million in 2021, registering a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period (2022-2030), and the market is projected to be worth USD 216.3 Million by 2030. Polyhydroxyalkanoate is typically produced when the microbes are cultured with nutrient-limiting concentrations which consist of phosphorus, nitrogen, sulfur, or oxygen and excess sources of carbon. Industrial optimizations in terms of such fermentation conditions have resulted in the reduced costs of commercial production of polyhydroxyalkanoate. Also, the increased use of polyhydroxyalkanoate in bioplastics is expected to potentially replace petrochemical-based plastics due to their biocompatibility nature. For instance, according to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), over 36% of the produced plastic comprises single-use plastic packaging for food and beverage containers and over 85% of the plastic remains in landfill as unregulated waste. Thus, the growing awareness of environment-friendly, PHA-based bioplastics is estimated to contribute to the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the growing introductions of green procurement policies by the government are also anticipated to witness significant growth in the projected period. For instance, the latest updated list of Food Contact Materials Regulation (EU) by the European Union is released in terms of using PHA in food packaging. Thus, the rising adoption of PHA-based bioplastics in packaging & food services is expected to boost the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market. In the context of the region, North America is anticipated to contribute a larger market share during the forecast period. The factors such as rising concerns about the use of conventional plastics due to the harmful threat to the environment combined with the increased expenditure in research and development of sustainable alternatives such as PHA-based biopolymers and the large presence of the major market players are estimated to accelerate the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market in North American region.

Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) Market Dynamics:

Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) are natural polyesters that are accumulated as water-insoluble granules within multiple microorganisms found in specific conditions. PHAs are also known as renewable resources-based substitutes for petrochemical polymers. The significant factors of polyhydroxyalkanoate are environmental biocompatibility and biodegradability.

Driver:

The rising adoption of biodegradable plastics in the food & beverage packaging industry combined with the increased focus on environmental concerns and favorable government green initiatives like the UNEP campaign called Clean Seas drive the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market owing to the increased demand for PHA-based biodegradable plastic. Additionally, the wide application of polyhydroxyalkanoate in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industry especially in developing countries such as India, Brazil, and Mexico, and increased consumer awareness of sustainable PHA-based plastics accelerate the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market during the forecast period.

Restraint:

The expensive procedure of biodegradable plastics polymerization, poor thermal properties of the PHA, and decreased research and development expenditures due to the reduced PHA production hinder the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market. Furthermore, the reduced awareness of PHA production from biomass in developing countries due to the high costs of processing and purification hamper the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market growth during the forecast period.

Opportunities:

The shift of focus on sustainability combined with government protocols for green procurement policies due to the high number of PHA-based plastic applications is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market. Additionally, the growing demand for polyhydroxyalkanoate for catering products, biodegradable mulch films, film packaging, compostable waste bags, and rigid packaging are also anticipated to create profitable opportunities for the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market.

COVID-19 Analysis of Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) Market:

The polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market has been significantly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic in many different parts of the world. The factors such as transportation restrictions, uncertain consumer demand, limited availability of raw materials, and economic slowdown are the major impacts of COVID-19 which hampered the growth of the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market. Shipments were impacted during the initial lockdown due to a labor shortage and the closure of a manufacturing facility. However, the circumstances have stabilized and as a result, it is determined that COVID-19’s overall impact on the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market is moderate. Post covid-19, there was a positive impact on the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market due to the increased awareness of sustainable alternatives like PHA-based bioplastic as a replacement for conventional plastic packaging.

Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) Market Segment Analysis:

By Type

The type segment is separated into short chain length, medium chain length, and long chain length. The short chain length segment is expected to contribute the largest share in terms of value in 2021. Monomers form multiple crystalline structures such as medium chain length monomers and short chain length monomers. The short chain length PHA monomers include Polyhydroxyvalerate (PHV), Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), and Poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (P3HB). The structure helps in determining the mechanical and thermal properties of monomers which make them suitable for diversified applications such as packaging and production of environmental-friendly plastics, biofuels, and biomedical products. Furthermore, the increased use of short chain length PHAs for manufacturing products such as carry bags and packaging materials is also projected to support the growth of the short chain length segment during the forecast period.
