Global Extruded PLA Market - Segmented by Derivatives and Region - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)
The global Extruded PLA market is expected to witness a CAGR of approximately 20% during the forecasted period, majorly driven by the usage of bio-based materials that are expected to help the environment by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from the usage of crude oil and the need to use sustainable plastic materials.
Rising Demand from End-users
Extruded PLA is used in various end-user industries, such as packaging, transportation, healthcare, textiles, etc., as a substitute for polyester and nylon. It is made from natural sources of starch, like tapioca, sugarcane, cornstarch etc. The major end-user industries of extruded PLA are expected to be packaging, transportation, and textile due to their extensive usage of polyester and nylon. The shift towards sustainable plastics and the interesting applications in tissue engineering are expected to propel the demand for this market.
Major Market Focused in Asia Pacific
The developing regions of North America and Europe have started usage of extruded PLA few years ago and it has been accepted well in multiple end-user industries. Interestingly, Asia-Pacific also adapted the usage of extruded PLA, due to the export demand. The increase in usage of extruded PLA for catering to the local needs in the future is expected to boost the market and companies are increasingly focusing on price competitiveness of extruded PLA.
March 2018: 3D printing has been an interesting market for PLA and the extrusion of PLA for use in 3D printing is leading to multiple innovations in extrusion. Micro pellet extrusion has been developed by New Zealand Researchers to improve the 3D printing process.
