Procurement Resource Assessment of Polylactic Acid (PLA) Production Process:

1. Polylactic Acid Production From Melt-Phase Polymerisation: This report provides the cost structure of polylactic acid production by the melt-phase polymerisation method. During the process, dextrose or glucose goes through fermentation to turn it into lactic acid, which is then further oligomerised and depolymerised into lactide (a cyclic dimer of lactic acid). At last, the polymerisation of lactide takes place in order to produce polylactic acid.

Product Definition:

Polylactic Acid (PLA), also called polylactide (PLA), is a thermoplastic biopolymer polyester which accounts for the second-highest consumption volume in regard to bioplastics across the globe. The product can be derived using renewable feedstocks, including sugarcane, corn and tapioca. It has various characteristics that are the same as polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS), and polypropylene (PP). It is also biodegradable and has high tensile strength, resistance to heat as well as thermal expansion.

Market Drivers:

The Polylactic Acid (PLA) market is witnessing growth due to its growing demand from end-user industries like agriculture, packaging, transport, and textile. The plastic is extensively used more than its counter options due to it being low carbon emission-producing which is the preferred choice for end-users. In addition, the rise in demand for flexible packaging is rapidly growing owing to its application for products such as ready-to-eat meals, snacks, and packaged food, among others which are furthering the market’s growth.

Furthermore, it finds application in the automotive sector for manufacturing parts incorporated in interiors and hoods under components that are boosting the industry’s expansion. It is also used in the textile industry to make fabrics that offer a smooth and pleasant finish which also gives excellent durability, moisture, and breathability. Also, it has properties like reducing the carbon footprint owing to its high bio content paired with other benefits like dimensional stability, UV resistance, impact resistance, colourability, and high gloss, which boost the market demand.
