Polyhydroxybutyrate Market Eyeing Admirable Growth Due to Increasing Government Initiatives :

Pune, India, August 2019, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global Polyhydroxybutyrate Market.

Market Analysis 

The Global Polyhydroxybutyrate Market is predicted to touch USD 752.3 Million at a 5.57% CAGR over the forecast period (2019-2024), states the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Polyhydroxybutyrate or PHB, simply put, is a biopolymer that is produced from microorganisms. This is a form of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) which is produced through the fermentation process. It is a thermoplastic polymer having properties that are similar to PP (petroleum-based polypropylene). Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is biodegradable and mostly used to manufacture packaging material, medical devices, and mulch films. 

PHB has various properties including biodegradability, non-toxicity, water resistance, and good oxygen permeability, which make it immensely useful for different end use industries. It is preferred over traditional petrochemically derived plastics owing to the plentiful benefits that it offers. Moreover, it is non-toxic, thus automatically holds better physical characteristics over polypropylene and thus is widely used in food packaging. 

Various factors are propelling the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth. Some of these factors, according to the Market Research Future report, include growing initiatives by the government and environmental agencies, increasing awareness in consumers about the negative impacts of non-biodegradable packaging materials, its eco-friendly nature, and increasing use in packaging materials including garbage bags, bin bags, and cling films, and increasing consumption of packaged food. 

On the contrary, high product price may hamper the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth over the forecast period. 

Market Segmentation

The MRFR report offers a wide segmental analysis of the polyhydroxybutyrate market on the basis of grade, application, and end use industry. 

Based on grade, the polyhydroxybutyrate market is segmented into lithium battery grade and industrial. Of these, the lithium battery grade segment is predicted to have the largest share in the market over the forecast period. This is owing to growing demand in the electrical and electronics and automotive industries. 

Based on application, the polyhydroxybutyrate market is segmented into chemical intermediate, electrolyte, solvent, and others. The electrolyte segment will lead the market over the forecast period. This is owing to growing demand for lithium-ion batteries. 

Based on end use industry, the polyhydroxybutyrate market is segmented into electronics, foundry, personal care and cosmetics, paints and coatings, Li-ion batteries, and others. Of these, the li-ion batteries segment will dominate the market over the forecast period. This is owing to increasing investment in electric cars, coupled with consumers inclination towards electronic goods.
