Polyhydroxyalkanoate is biodegradable in nature, which makes it best suited for various biomedical applications. It is widely used in the manufacture of biomedical products such as sutures, suture fasteners, meniscus repair devices, and others. The global rise in the geriatric population has significantly increased the use of such devices. This has subsequently increased the demand for PHA in biomedical applications, which is driving the growth of the global polyhydroxyalkanoate market.

As per Technavio, the sustainable production of PHA will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.

Global Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market: Sustainable Production of PHA

Growing focus on sustainability and government regulations on the use of plastics are providing significant growth opportunities for market vendors. Rising use of biodegradable films for compostable waste bags, catering products, film packaging, and rigid packaging has increased the demand for PHA in packaging applications. PHA is also used to manufacture lightweight components in the automotive industry. It is considered as a replacement for polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Thus, the use of PHAs to manufacture sustainable products is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

“Increasing preference for eco-friendly packaging and increasing investments in R&D activities will further boost market growth during the forecast period”, says a senior analyst at Technavio.
