Global Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) Markets Report 2021-2031 Featuring Bio-on, Bluepha, CJ CHeilJedang, Danimer Scientific, Kaneka, Nafigate, Newlight Technologies and Tianan Biologic Material


Dublin, Sept. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA)" report has been added to's offering.

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are a family of biodegradable polyesters synthesized by various bacteria. They encompass a large variety of bioplastics raw materials made from many different renewable resources. Examples of Polyhydroxyalkanoates are PHB, PHV, PHBV, PHBH etc.

They are candidates for substitution of petrochemical non-renewable plastics due to their biodegradable and nontoxic properties. They also possess good mechanical properties, good barrier properties toward oxygen, carbon dioxide and moisture, biocompatibility and versatility.

The main applications of PHA-based materials are in films and rigid packaging, disposable items (e.g. utensils, hygiene products and compostable bags), cosmetics, biomedicine, plastic components, agriculture and to a lesser extent in textiles, water treatments, 3D printing etc. Wider applications are hindered by high production costs, especially for raw material, downstream processing, and polymer recovery.

Manufacturing capacities of PHA-based materials have increased in recent years from companies such as Danimer, Kaneka, PHAbuilder, Bluepha and this trend is expected to continue due to growing global demand for bioplastics.
