The polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market size is estimated to be USD 62 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 121 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is a sustainable alternative to conventional petrochemical plastics. It is 100% biodegradable plastic made out of renewable sources. Unlike PLA, PHA is 100% marine soluble. Different production method such as vegetable oil fermentation, sugar fermentation, and methane fermentation are used to produce monomers for polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). The short chain length monomers are majorly used to make cheap, flexible and single use packaging. Factors such as stringent environmental laws and customer awareness will drive the market.
Based on type, the major type for polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is short chain length polymer. This type is mainly used in packaging & food services applications due to its low cost as compared to the medium chain length. Moreover, the use of short chain length polymer is increasing because of its use in diversified applications, for instance, environmental-friendly plastics, for packaging and biomedical (implants and controlled release drug carriers). The monomers can later be used to produce biofuels.

Based on production method, the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market has been segmented into as vegetable oil fermentation, sugar fermentation, and methane fermentation. The demand for polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) in this segment is mainly driven by the abundance of sugar source found in sugarcane, beet, molasses, and bagasse which can be easily consumed and converted by bacteria to produce PHA. The market in sugar fermentation is projected to witness a moderate CAGR, between 2020 and 2025, because of its abundance in sugar sources.
Based on the application, the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market finds its applications in packaging and food services, biomedical, agriculture and others. Packaging is the most promising application, where PHA can replace conventional plastics. According to United Nations Environment Programme report on plastic waste, packaging accounts for 42% of the total plastic waste generated globally. Most of this waste is from single-use plastic. Many European countries are banning the use of single-use plastics in departmental stores and malls, which is creating an opportunity for PHA to gain some momentum in the packaging & food services application.
