"Increasing scope in end-user segments across the world to drive the sector for PHA."

The overall market for Polyhydroxyalkanoate is forecasted to grow from an estimated $73.60M in 2016 to $93.50M by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of ~4.9 percent. With the growing focus on sustainability and favorable governmental green procurement policies, the industry for biodegradable plastics including PHA is anticipated to grow at an important rate. Nevertheless, the cost of production of PHA based bioplastics is higher than that for conventional plastics, which could restrain the increase of the market.

"The packaging segment to benefit a major part during the estimate period."

The packaging segment is intended to be the quickest-rising in the PHA market during the upcoming five years. PHA is a biodegradable polymer which decomposes naturally due to the actions of environmental microorganisms on it, and can be used in different types of packaging including, rigid, flexible, loose fill, and compost bags.

"European area recorded for the biggest market share in 2015."

The sector for PHA is broken down on the basis of regions into, North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia-Pac, South America region, and Middle East (ME) and African continent. EU recorded for the biggest share of the total demand generated by the overall PHA market in 2015, due to the fact that focus on sustainability is high in the European area, especially in the European Union area. The Asia Pacific (APAC) area is forecasted to be the quickest developing market for PHA during the outlook period, due to the increase in the economies and the fast growth in the bio medical and packaging markets.
