Global Polyhydroxybutyrate Market: Overview

Polyhydroxybutyrate is a biopolymer which is manufactured from microorganisms. It is a kind of polyhydroxyalkanoate and is synthesized via fermentation process. These are thermoplastic polymers with similar properties to petroleum based polypropylene. Polyhydroxybutyrate is biodegradable polymer and is widely used in the manufacturing of packaging material of medical devices and mulch films. Polyhydroxybutyrate is drawing heavy interest from end use industries such as food, agriculture and pharmaceutical owing to its environmental friendly features. Polyhydroxybutyrate is widely used in the packaging of cosmetic and food products. Increasing preference of packaged food due to easy availability and hectic lifestyle is set to uplift the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing population has resulted in the reduction of agricultural land due to urbanization and industrialization has forced farmers to increase the productivity in the comparatively smaller areas. This led to increase in demand for polyhydroxybutyrate as mulch films. Additionally, increasing number of initiatives by environmental agencies and government coupled with rising awareness within consumers regarding the negative effects of the non-biodegradable packaging materials along with ecofriendly nature of the products is driving the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth.

Global Polyhydroxybutyrate Market: Dynamics

Increasing usage of polyhdroxybutyrate in packaging material such as cling films, bin bags, and garbage bags is expected to uplift the global polyhdroxybutyrate market in the coming future. The growing consumption of packaged food has also propelled the usage of polyhydroxybutyrate in food processing industry. Moreover increasing government initiatives and norms made by environmental agencies coupled with rising consumer wakefulness concerning the harmful effects of the non-biodegradable packaging materials along with environmentally friendly nature of the product is driving the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth. However, high price of polyhydroxybutyrate based polymers as compared to conventional polymers expected to hinder the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth over the forecast period.
