TechNavio, a tech-focused research firm, has published a new report on the Global Polylactic Acid Market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.97 percent from 2014-2019.

The latest report by TechNavio draws attention to a growing number of end-user applications, which are expected to boost market growth over the projected period. Major end-users of polylactic acid (PLA) like the packaging sector, textile industry, electronics industry, construction sector and automobile industries are experiencing robust growth.

“The growth is expected to continue over the forecast period because of improved global economic conditions, growing populations in developing countries, increasing awareness and changes in consumer preferences,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio.

Furthermore, the report emphasizes the prospect of producing PLA from lignocellulose, which is a biomass produced as a by-product by the agriculture sector. It offers a cost-effective and sustainable means of PLA production for the Global PLA Market.

“Though the use of lignocellulose is restricted because of high production costs, advances in technology and increased spending on R&D can help market players leverage this option,” says Ghaus.
