Global Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) Market Report 2022: Packaging & Food Services and Biomedical Industries Offer Significant Opportunities


Dublin, Oct. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) Market by Type (Short chain length, Medium Chain Lenth), Production Methods (Sugar Fermentation, Vegetable Oil Fermentation), Application (Packaging & Food Services, Biomedical) and Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

PHA market is expected to reach at USD 167 million in 2027 at a CAGR of 15.3% during the forecast period. Growing awareness towards environment and harmful impacts of conventional plastics is driving the growth for PHA market. Developed regions such as Europe and North America are introducing strict regulations, which can provide lucrative opportunities for the market.

By application, biomedical accounted for second-largest market share for PHA market, in terms of volume, in 2021

Plastics are finding increasing use for the fabrication of biomedical materials and drug delivery applications. Both, synthetic and bio-based plastics are utilized for manufacturing biomedical equipment depending upon the suitability and properties required. The synthetic plastics used are PE, PS, PVC, and PP, whereas PLA and PHA are biodegradable. The mechanical properties of these materials are of primary importance in this segment as these need to match with their specific medical applications including tissue engineering and wound treatment.

Sugar fermentation is expected to be the second-fastest growing application for PHA market during the forecast period, in terms of value

sugar fermentation is The most common production method, based on the source of raw material. Since sugarcane, beet, molasses, and bagasse is available in abundance and is easily consumed and converted by bacteria to produce PHA, it is projected to grow at second-highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period.

Based on region, Europe region was the largest market for PHA in 2021, in terms of volume

Europe is one of the pioneers of biodegradable plastics and has a significant focus on sustainable packaging. Increased awareness in Europe about environmental issues has resulted in the formulation of laws and regulations which have influenced the creation of biological waste treatment facilities.
