Poly (Butylene Adipate-Co-Terephthalate) Market Overview

The global Poly (Butylene Adipate-Co-Terephthalate) PBAT Market Size is being driven by factors such as increasing application in packaging industry coupled with rising government policies toward green procurement. Significant increase in plastic packaging production and sales, specifically in emerging economies of Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America such as France, Germany, U.K, Italy, China, India, Thailand, South Korea, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina is set to propel market growth over the forecast period. Better economic situation and consumer preference toward environment-friendly products have resulted in the increasing demand for PBAT. The major initiatives taken by the government and non-government organizations across the globe towards reducing pollution is set to uplift its demand over the next seven years.

The biodegradable plastics like Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) and Poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) have applications range from packaging, foam materials, apparel, carpets, foam materials, electronics and construction materials all the way through the toys and sports articles. They basically have the same properties as conventional plastics, but offer additional benefits such as greater elasticity and heat resistance and to some extent water vapor permeability. But their ecological benefits will be even more important in the future because of their biologically-degradable or can be recycled for generating thermal energy or for reuse as a material. PBAT is also the part of the biodegradable plastics and the awareness of among consumer for the use of such green plastics in these application segments would offer new opportunities for PBAT market.
