Degradable Plastic

US degradable plastic demand will grow 16.8 percent annually through 2010 as these products become more price competitive and continue to benefit from various sustainable resource initiatives. Biodegradable/compostable plastic will remain dominant and grow the fastest, led by polyactic acid (PLA). Packaging will lead market gains.

This study analyzes the $335 million US degradable plastic industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by type (e.g., polylactic acid, starch-based, cellophane, polyester-based); and by market (e.g., packaging, fibers).

The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 leading industry players including NatureWorks, Innovia Films, and ITW Hi-Cone.
