Market Definition

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are biodegradable polymers that are manufactured by the microbial fermentation of glucose or sugar. In other words, polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are produced by numerous microorganisms, including through the bacterial fermentation of lipids. Owing to their biodegradable properties, polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are used for a wide range of industrial applications. Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) serve as a source of energy and a carbon store when produced using bacteria.

Global Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Increasing demand for biodegradable materials in the packaging and foodservice industries

The Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) market growth factors include the increasing demand for biodegradable materials in the packaging and food service industries, as these materials will mitigate environmental pollution and support sustainability initiatives. Moreover, factors such as increasing demand for food packaging and increasing demand for biodegradable plastics in various forms of packaging are expected to drive the demand for polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) shortly.

  • Emergence of new and cost-effective raw materials for PHA production

The demand for polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is mainly driven by the abundance of sugar sources found in sugarcane, beet, molasses, and bagasse which can be easily consumed and converted by bacteria to produce PHA. In addition, the manufacturing of biodegradable plastics can benefit from raw materials derived from non-food items or waste residues worldwide. This is owing to the rising global demand for cereals, including maize, wheat, barley, and other grains for food, animal feed, and biofuels. Additionally, non-food raw resources such as organic waste, biomass, and dead plants are predicted to improve waste management.

  • Increasing concerns for human health and safety

Manufacturers in the polyhydroxyalkanoate market blend PHAs with other polymers to provide valuable human-use options. Moreover, thermal decomposition methods such as pyrolysis are being used for chemically decomposing PHA into other substances, including monomers or oligomers, by the presence of heat and leaving no harm to the environment.

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) Market

Opportunities

  • Increasing investments in research & development activities for PHA applications

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are a diverse group of biodegradable polyesters that can be synthesized through biological and non-biological routes. Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are compounds that belong to the class of polyesters made from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane bagasse. With the growing acceptance of PHA in various industries and segments, companies are investing heavily to explore new applications for PHAs, including biomedical products, paints & coatings, and textiles, which is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) market.

  • Stringent government regulations regarding the use of plastic products

The strict governmental law against single-use plastic and increasing concerns over human health and safety are expected to offer opportunities for growth in the global; polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) market. The need for environment-friendly products is driving innovation in the bioplastics industry. The packaging and food services industry demands single-use plastics and sustainable packaging. This increases the need for bioplastics. Moreover, there are many PHA manufacturers across the globe with a huge domestic market in their regions.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Higher price of PHA as compared to conventional polymers

The considerably higher cost of PHA than other polymers is also one of the major restrictions on industry expansion. Biodegradable plastics, such as PHA, have a production cost of 20 percent to 80 percent greater than conventional plastics. These bio-based materials and technologies are still in the early stages of development and have not yet reached the same level of commercialization as their petrochemical counterparts.

  • Slow advancement in manufacturing technologies for PHA production

Economic threats hamper the broad market penetration of PHAs: production of these materials is still significantly more expensive if compared to the well-established, large-scale manufacturing of petrol-based plastics. In particular, the allocation of feedstocks needed for PHA production drastically contributes to these polyesters' still high production price. The major limitations in producing PHAs are special growth conditions required, substrate composition, cultures condition, fermentation processes (batch, fed-batch, repeated batch, or fed-batch, and continuous modes), and high recovery cost. In addition, the production of PHA generates a large amount of biomass waste.

Recent Development

In January 2021, Danimer Scientific opened its new facility at 605 Rolling Hills Lane, Winchester, KY 40391, which is the world's first commercial production facility for PHA. With the help of this new facility, the company doubled its production capacity in the year 2021.
