A naturally occurring who is partially in the crystalline polymer is called Polyhydroxy butyrate (PHB). During starvation, it helps in energy storage which is primarily synthesized by prokaryotic microorganisms. Various bacterial strains are potent producers of polyhydroxy butyrate. Some of these are rhizobium, pseudomonas, Nocardia, Bacillus, Azotobacter, Alcaligenes, and many others. PHB is also used as an attractive alternative for petroleum-derived plastics as it has non-pollutant and biological degradability characteristics.

Market Dynamics


Drivers


Various factors drive the market demand. The rise in the regulations regarding the environment and increasing concern for plastic waste accumulation drives the demand for biodegradable plastics and hence increases demand for polyhydroxy butyrate. As PHB has thermoplastics characteristics that resemble synthetic polymers to a great extent which helps in various synthetic plastic-based applications and hence drives the market demand. In this eco-friendly era, PHB is largely used as it reduces hazardous effects caused by non-degradable and conventional petroleum-based plastics.


Opportunities


The rise in demand for PHB in the global market. Owing to increasing use of polyhydroxy butyrate as a replacement of polyolefin commodities like polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) creates various growth opportunities during the forecasted period. Moreover, owing to various qualities of PHB like nanotechnology, biocompatibility it is largely used in medical applications which propel the market demand and hence provide various growth opportunities in the global market.


Restraints


Though the polyhydroxy butyrate market is increasing at an incredible rate some factors restrict its growth in the global market. The presence of poor mechanical properties of biopolymer coupled with high fabrication cost restricts the use of PHB in various applications and hence hamper the market growth. The cost of manufacturing biodegradable plastic-like PHB is 20%-80% more than conventional plastics. Since most of the countries are at the developing stage it becomes difficult to afford biodegradable plastic. Also, the PHB market is at the early development stage and hence it does not achieve economies of scale.


Value Chain Analysis


The demand for the polyhydroxy butyrate market is increasing rapidly in the global market owing to various benefits associated with it. Since it has properties like oxygen permeability and resistance from UV rays it is largely used in the various medical and biomedical industries. It is also used in the production of microcapsules to control the release of drugs. Another use of PHB is seen in tissue engineering. Regular research and development done in PHB fuels the market demand in the global market. Additionally, increasing concern regarding environment-related issues provides growth opportunities.

Recent Developments


Aug 2021 Nike has teamed up with Newlight Technologies, a biotechnology business, to lower its carbon impact. Nike intends to investigate the usage of AirCarbon, a carbon-negative biomaterial created by ocean microorganisms and developed by Newlight. The material's creation also makes use of the exchange of greenhouse gases. By developing this plastic alternative, Newlight hopes to contribute to the fight against plastic pollution and climate change. The material is currently utilized as a plastic leather alternative for bags, eyewear, and wallets. Newlight uses ocean microorganisms to manufacture AirCarbon, which absorbs greenhouse gases and air before converting it inside the material's cells. As a result, AirCarbon, also known as polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), is an energy storage substance made up of 40% oxygen from the air and 60% carbon from greenhouse gases.

Jun 2021 A RUDN University scientist has discovered how the environment affects the nanofibers of two organic plastics: polyhydroxybutyrate and polylactide. Using the electrospinning method, the researchers produced six types of fibres from polylactide granules and polyhydroxybutyrate powder. The polymer solution was placed in an electric field with a high voltage, which "pulled" the fluid into narrow jets. They transformed into fibers when they cooled. Six different types of finished fibers were obtained, each with a different polymer content, ranging from pure polyhydroxybutyrate and polylactide to their blends in various ratios.

The largest market share in the polyhydroxy butyrate market is held by the European region owing to increasing demand for sophisticated biopolymers coupled with a reduction in the dependence on fossil fuels drives the market growth.


Tianjin GreenBio Materials Co., Ltd. (China) is spending a huge sum of money on research and development to get an upper edge over its competitors. This will help the company by increasing the sales revenue.


Being the fastest-growing region, the Asia-Pacific region projects higher market share owing to increasing personal disposable income coupled with increasing industrialization.


All the major key players are highly investing in new product launches, mergers, and acquisitions, and joint ventures.
