  • Country: Global
Polylactic acid is a bio-degradable thermoplastic, which is derived from renewable sources such as sugarcane, corn starch, wheat, tapioca roots, and the resulting polylactic acid formed is pressed out in the form of fiber by melt-spinning. Given that PLA fiber can be recycled(ground up, and melted)/ can be decomposed into carbon-dioxide and water by natural processes, it is regarded as highly sustainable than any other non-cellulosic synthetic fiber.

Market Dynamics

The global PLA fiber market is driven by the demand for various end user applications such as woven and knit apparel fabrics including socks, shirts, and sports clothing, products including fiber-fill for pillows, comforters, mattress pads, fiber-beds (similar to feather beds) and pillow-top mattresses, carpeting including recyclable carpeting, disposable products such as diapers and wipes, simulated suede and leathers, fish nets, automotive upholstery, packaging, healthcare etc. Driven primarily by environmental shifts and pressures, population change and changing consumer values, and enriched by opportunities emerging due to technological advances and shifting economic power, mindful consumptionis emerging replacing the conspicuous consumption of the past and this movement is even more progressive in the emerging markets where rapid economic development has triggered negative environmental changes such as pollution, water scarcity or unmanaged industrial waste. All these factors, combined with the depleting fossil fuel reserves which are used as raw materials in the manufacture of synthetic fibers, are projected to drive the growing demand for eco-friendly alternatives for synthetic fibers and hence PLA fibers. Prices of raw materials and the general macro-economic environmental factors, which influence the demand for the various end-user application segments are some of the challenges faced the global PLA fiber market.
