“Governments across the globe have been instrumental in imposing ban on the use of fossil fuel-based products such as plastic bags and are also providing incentives for bio-based PLA production. Moreover, the rising petrochemical prices in association with growing awareness for environment safety have been the prime contributors towards the growth of Polylactic Acid market” state AMR analysts Sarah Clark and Ranjan Singh. “The ongoing research on reinforcement of PLA with other materials would bring opportunities for PLA with much improved products in future.” add the analysts.
