Monomers can form various structures, such as short chain length monomers and medium chain length monomers .Short chain length PHA monomers consist of not more than four to ten carbon atoms. Some of the short chain length PHA monomers include Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), Poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (P3HB), and Polyhydroxyvalerate (PHV).  The structure determines the thermal and mechanical properties of the monomers, making them suitable for the use in diversified applications, for instance, environmental-friendly plastics, for packaging and biomedical (implants and controlled release drug carriers). PHA monomers can also be used to produce biofuels. The applications best suited for short chain length PHAs, such as packaging materials and carry bags. It has a large market in Europe due to strict governmental regulations regarding the single use plastics.

Based on the production method, the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market has been segmented into as vegetable oil fermentation, sugar fermentation, and methane fermentation. The demand for polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) in this segment is mainly driven by the abundance of carbohydrate source found in sugarcane, beet, molasses, and bagasse which can be easily consumed and converted by bacteria to produce PHA. The market in sugar fermentation is projected to witness a higher CAGR in the forecasted year because of its abundance in sugar sources.

Danimer Scientific is one of the major players in the polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) market. In order to expand its business, the company is focusing on enhancing its market reach by opening plants to increase the capacity. For instance, In May 2019, Danimer Scientific announced the completion of a new plant for PHA production in Kentucky, US. The plant will use canola oil as the raw material for PHA production. The plant started operating from September 2019. Similarly, September 2019, RWDC announced the closing of a USD 133 million two-stage Series B funding round. This funding will be used to replace single-use plastic continues to rise to meet growing consumer demand for better materials choices. The funding will meet the growing demand for PHA by expanding the company’s production capacity to a new facility in Athens, Georgia.

The companies also came into agreement as a strategy to expand their market presence and brand image. In November 2020, Danimer partners with Eagle Beverage to produce biodegradable drinking straws. It will use Danimer’s Nodax PHA for marine degradable straws with plans to expand into adjacent product categories. Similarly, in August 2020, Kaneka, in a partnership with Shiseido Company Ltd., has been developing cosmetics packages made from Kaneka Biodegradable Polymer PHBH since 2019. Shiseidos new lip palette, “A Kiss to the sea,” matching with PHBH’s function of sea biodegradability, has laid a path for PHBH to be adopted in the palettes case (both the main body and lid). This is the first time PHBH is used in the field of cosmetics.
