San Francisco, California (PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Uncertain petrochemical prices are expected to have a positive effect on the overall bio-based functional polymers market over the next six years. Consumer preference towards bio-based polymers over conventional polymers is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Bio-based feedstock usage is supported by the environmental regulations against their chemical counterparts and is expected to be beneficial for the global bio-based functional polymers market. Growing end-use industries on a global scale is also expected to have a positive influence in the bio-based functional polymers market growth. Polylactic acid (PLA) and Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) were the most dominant products in 2013 owing to growing end-use applications market such as automobiles, food packaging, chemicals, textile, laminates, hygiene products, fibers, medical packaging, cosmetics, and non-woven fabrics.
