Growing Demand for Lactic Acid in Biodegradable Polymers Application
Lactic Acid is a key building block for the synthesis of various types of biodegradable plastics. The global market for Lactic Acid has been expanding at a rapid pace over the past few years. For instance, the global market was estimated to be worth US$ 875 million in 2014 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of roughly 10% from 2015 through 2022. This article provides an overview of how this market functions as well as an analysis of its supply chain, which includes raw material suppliers, producers, and end-use companies. Bioplastics are plastic polymers derived from renewable biomass sources as corn starch, vegetable oils, sugar cane, or pea starch.
Burning Lactic Acid generates heat to produce steam for use in power plants. This renewable energy source can be applied to cogeneration plants, thermoelectric plants, and solar plants. The market for biodegradable polymers is expected to experience robust growth over the forecast period as environmental concerns regarding petroleum-based plastics gain prominence across regions. The market is witnessing the increasing penetration of bioplastics owing to government incentives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from conventional plastics. However, high demand from emerging economies such as China may pose a challenge for other regions due to low-cost advantages of these nations.
North America is Dominating Lactic Acid Market
The United States is the largest producer and consumer of Lactic Acid in North America with total consumption exceeding 800,000 tons/year. Lactic Acid is used extensively in food applications notably as an acidulant or flavoring agent to adjust pH values. It is also used for its antimicrobial properties, preservative effects, buffering capability, fermentative abilities and positive influence on water activity. End use application data was collected by primary research through surveys with companies using or producing Lactic Acid . Moreover, data reported by various associations of producers and users were also included in the study. Lactic Acid is used extensively in dairy products such as cheese, ice-cream, dressings and sauces or bakery items like bread, crackers and cookies among others. It is estimated that Lactic Acid worth USD 448 million will be consumed by food application which includes wine/beer making, meat processing etc. The growing demand for naturally fermented foods is expected to foster the use of Lactic Acid in food industry along with its increased usage in pharmaceuticals (sterilization water supply) and animal feed (poultry).
