Poly (Butylene Adipate-Co-Terephthalate) Market Trends

  • Shift in consumer preference towards bio-based plastics is driving the market growth

The market for biodegradable plastics like PBAT is expanding as a result of consumer awareness of sustainable plastic alternatives and widespread initiatives to stop using conventional plastics that are not biodegradable. Traditional plastics, which are mostly made of petroleum, take decades to disintegrate and spend a lot of time in landfills. When biodegradable plastics are thrown away or reincorporated into the environment, they degrade more quickly. Additionally, compared to conventional plastics, biodegradable polymers decompose significantly more quickly because to the actions of microbes. The adoption of PBAT is encouraged by the increased public knowledge of these negative consequences (caused by conventional plastics).

Concern over the potential health dangers connected to conventional plastics is also rising. Because PBAT is non-toxic, using it is safer and better for you. PVC, for instance, can result in genetic problems, ulcers, hearing loss, and vision impairment. Customers are paying more attention to how their purchases affect the environment. As a result, there is a rising need for environmentally friendly and sustainable goods, particularly those produced with PBAT.

PBAT is ductile and durable, and it may be produced using standard film extrusion methods. This contributes to the production of films having LDPE-like mechanical characteristics. Nevertheless, PBAT is more rigid than its homopolymers. Incorporating PBAT into polymer blends that contain brittle polymers like PLA (Polylactic Acid) or thermoplastic starch (TPS) can therefore aid increase their toughness without affecting their biodegradability.

Increased research is being conducted by PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate) industry participants to create flexible and moldable composites based on PBAT and calcium carbonate. When compared to other biodegradable plastics, the combination of cheap calcium carbonate and PBAT is somewhat cost-competitive. On the other hand, producers are expanding the amount of packaging films they produce using a mixture of PBAT and PBS (polybutylene succinate). Thus, driving the Poly (Butylene Adipate-Co-Terephthalate) market revenue.
