Polyhydroxybutyrate is a biopolymer which is manufactured from microorganisms. It is a kind of polyhydroxyalkanoate and is synthesized via fermentation process. These are thermoplastic polymers with similar properties to petroleum based polypropylene. Polyhydroxybutyrate is biodegradable polymer and is widely used in the manufacturing of packaging material of medical devices and mulch films.
Polyhydroxybutyrate is drawing heavy interest from end use industries such as food, agriculture and pharmaceutical owing to its environmental friendly features. Polyhydroxybutyrate is widely used in the packaging of cosmetic and food products. Increasing preference of packaged food due to easy availability and hectic lifestyle is set to uplift the market growth over the forecast period.
Moreover, the increasing population has resulted in the reduction of agricultural land due to urbanization and industrialization has forced farmers to increase the productivity in the comparatively smaller areas. This led to increase in demand for polyhydroxybutyrate as mulch films.
Additionally, increasing number of initiatives by environmental agencies and government coupled with rising awareness within consumers regarding the negative effects of the non-biodegradable packaging materials along with ecofriendly nature of the products is driving the polyhydroxybutyrate market growth.
