Polyglycolic Acid Market is estimated to generate about USD 9 billion by 2024; as per the new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Polyglycolic acid (PGA) market is poised to have strong demand in accordance with the modern trends in the packaging sector by 2024. The packaging industry focus has been consistently drifted to the usage of compostable and degradable polymers. Approval of polyglycolic acid (polyglycolide) as a biodegradable plastic by the U.S., Japan and Europe governments present strong prospects for product demand. When polyglycolide is used in multi-layered PET bottles as an inner layer, the bottle can be recycled using standard PET recycling processes. This reduces the extent of CO2 outflowing from carbonated drink bottle and provides extended shelf life. Such traits are expected to boost the market over the forecast period.

PGA market will observe the mounting demand of product for medical applications in future years. Polyglycolide sutures have witnessed a widening acceptance among other absorbable sutures in the recent decade. A global escalation in obesity rates has resulted in a rise in the number of bariatric surgeries performed annually. The American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) stated that in 2016, over 210,000 bariatric measures were undertaken in the U.S. Rising prevalence of lifestyle ailments and a consequent rise in procedures for their treatment shall demand effective wound closure methods for increased patient expediency and faster recovery by 2024.
High rate of degradation featured by PGA along with its low solubility might limit the product usage in biomedical applications. The industry will be benefited soon with robust product development initiatives in order to control its rate of degradation as well as cost of production.
Fiber form of product had more than 40% share in 2016, which will have prominent gains in next 7 years, with swelling product usage in medical applications. The film segment in the global polyglycolide market shall rise with CAGR of 8.5% during forecast timespan. A rise in the product usage in the multi-layered PET bottles, as an inner layer will propel the size of film form by 2024.
