Flexible Packaging is Gaining Ground, In Turn Augmenting PBAT Market Growth, States Fact.MR

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global PBAT market is estimated at US$ 1.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

In recent years the concept of quality and safety of food from the consumer side has undergone profound evolution. In general, awareness of the risk associated with waste disposal and the importance of biodegradable products has increased.

To solve this problem, OEM and food manufacturers are coming up with biodegradable packaging solutions that cause a little-to-no impact on the environment. PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate) is used extensively during the manufacturing and packaging of such items.

Market Development Strategies

Goliaths within the PBAT market are maintaining a good balance between organic and inorganic growth strategies. Investment towards production capacity and facility expansions, acquisitions, and collaborations have remained some key strategies by market players in order to strengthen their position and deepen their roots across the globe.

Earlier, manufacturers in the PBAT market were focusing only on attaining a high degradation rate, which limited them to manufacturing films and disposable bags.

Whereas new entrants in the market are shifting their focus towards enhancing the hydrophobicity and thermomechanical properties of PBAT so that it could be used in metal coatings to avoid corrosion. Such factors open new doors for the market to explore and grow.
