Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a biopolymer produced from microorganisms. It is a kind of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) and is produced via fermentation process. They are thermoplastic polymer with properties very similar to petroleum based polypropylene (PP). They are biodegradable and are widely used in the manufacturing of packaging material, mulch films, and medical devices. PHB is attracting heavy interest from end use industries such as agriculture, food, and pharmaceutical due to its environmental friendly characteristics.
Increasing number of initiatives by government and environmental agencies coupled with rising consumer awareness regarding the harmful effects of the non-biodegradable packaging along with ecofriendly nature of the product is driving PHB market growth. However, higher price of PHB based polymer in comparison to conventional polymers is slated to hinder PHB market growth over the forecast period.

PHB is widely used in the packaging of food and cosmetic products as well. Increasing consumption of packaged food due to busy lifestyle and easy availability is set to compliment the market growth over the forecast period. The growing population has resulted in the shrinking of agricultural land due to industrialization and urbanization and has forced farmers to increase productivity in the relatively smaller areas. This has increased the demand for PHB as mulch films.
The increasing usage of polyhdroxybutyrate (PHB) in packaging material such as bin bags, cling films, and garbage bags is also expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. The growth in consumption of packaged food has propelled the usage of PHB in food processing industry.
The prominent players operating in the polyhydroxybutyrate market include BASF SE (Germany), Biomer (Germany), TianAn Biologic Materials Co., Ltd. (China), PHB Industrial S.A (Brazil), BIO-ON (Italy), Telles, LLC (U.S), TEPHA INC (U.S) and others.
