COVID-19 Leads to Reduced Adoption of PLA Owing to Industrial Shutdown

  • In April 2020, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimated a 3% fall in the overall global economic activity in 2020, which is believed to be higher than the 2009 economic slowdown.

The shutdown of industries has led to reduced industrial demand for polylactic acid (PLA) and other plastic packaging products. Moreover, several government agencies have banned the use of single-use plastics citing no provision for the biodegradation of the materials. This is expected to hamper the market growth in the short run.

However, proactive initiatives from the government and private companies are expected to favor the growth of the market in the forthcoming years. For instance,

  • November 2020 – Total Corbion PLA released its whitepaper that explains its position on the preferred end-of-life options for PLA bioplastics. The company further outlined the importance of PLA products and its applications that can aid in contributing towards effective functioning of a circular economy.
