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.
