Polylactic acid is bioplastic and showcases no adverse effects on health. These facets have operated the market prices of Polylactic acid in the global market. Furthermore, the imposition of a ban on single-use plastics in food sectors has forced the manufacturers to increase Polylactic acid's operational rate to cater to the demand from downstream sectors.

As per ChemAnalyst data, the prices of Polylactic acid will continue to follow the uptrend in upcoming weeks as the consequences of surging feedstock corn and sugarcane prices and burgeoning demand from downstream sectors such as packaging and medical devices. These factors will drive the market sentiments toward Polylactic acid and impact its prices.
