L-lactide Market - Overview
L-lactide is produced as an intermediate in the formation of polylactic acid or PLA. It finds applications in various end-user industries such as food & beverage packaging, electrical & electronics, medical & health care, agriculture, and textiles. Ring polymerization is the common method of production of L-lactide. Rise in applications of bioplastics in the food & beverage packaging as well as medical and health care sectors is anticipated to boost demand for L-lactides in these applications. Consumption of conventional plastics and awareness among consumers regarding the health risks associated with plastics are propelling the L-lactide market.

In terms of end-user industry, the global L-lactide market has been classified into food & beverage packaging, electrical & electronics, medical & health care, and others, including agriculture and textiles. The food & beverage packaging segment accounts for a high market share owing to increased applications of L-lactide in food containers, bags and cups, and disposable serviceware and utensils; lamination or coating for paper/paperboard and foam products for trays; and in other packaging materials and films for food wrapping.

The electrical and electronics segment is anticipated to offer attractive growth opportunities to the L-lactide market due to increasing applications of L-lactide in 3D printing and rapid prototyping. Rise in applications of L-lactide in the medical and health care sector is fuelling demand for it. L-lactide finds applications in medical implants, tissue engineering, orthopedic devices, drug delivery systems, etc.. The agricultural segment of the L-lactide market is likely to offer attractive growth opportunities. Manufacturing of soil retention sheeting, agricultural films, and waste bags are some of the applications of L-lactide in this sector. Consumer preference for eco-friendly, non-toxic products drives the global L-lactide market. Use of biomaterials such as L-lactide reduces dependence on fossil fuels.

The federal government aims to drive demand for bio-based products through procurement programs. The U.S government has introduced the ‘Farm Bill,’ which is intended to encourage innovation and improve the commercialization of bio-based products. Concerns over the safety of plastics as food packaging materials have boosted demand for L-lactides in the region. The zero waste policy adopted in Europe is likely to have a significant positive influence on the L-lactide market in the region. Key countries and regions of the L-lactide market in Asia Pacific include China and Japan.

L-lactide is expected to offer promising applications in the medical & health care sector. Advancements in nanotechnology and material science are likely to propel the L-lactide market in the coming years. Technological advancements in emerging economies are likely to provide better growth opportunities to the global L-lactide market. In Asia Pacific, Japan and China are the major countries contributing significantly to the expansion of the L-lactide market. Existence of bioplastic recycling technology in developed regions provides better expansion opportunities to the L-lactide market.
