Furthermore, increasing popularity of newer applications (like coated cellophane, agricultural mulching, non-woven fibers, and active packaging among others) across various end user industries such as food and beverage packaging, agriculture, electronics, textiles, Bio medical and others would open new growth avenues in the global polylactic acid market. However, factors such as high production cost, need for industrial composting, popularity of competing alternatives for renewable packaging such as Bio- PE, PHA, and Bio-PET would impede the PLA market growth.
