Global Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) Market Research Report 2022: A Family of Eco-friendly, Biodegradable and Compostable Biopolymer Polyesters Synthesized by Various Bacteria


Dublin, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) to 2033" report has been added to's offering.

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are a family of eco-friendly, biodegradable and compostable biopolymer 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.

Main applications of PHA-based materials are in films and rigid packaging, disposable items (e.g. drinking straws, utensils, hygiene products and compostable bags), cosmetics, biomedicine, plastic components, agriculture and to a lesser extent in textiles, water treatments, 3D printing etc.

Manufacturing capacities of PHA-based materials has increased in recent years from companies such as CJ Biomaterials, Inc., Danimer, Kaneka, PHAbuilder, Bluepha and this trend will continue as producers have plans to add 100,000s of tons in capacities over the next few years.
