As per a new market study by Fact.MR, the global bio-based platform chemicals market is expected to reflect healthy growth from 2020 to 2030. Bio-glycerol will account for higher demand, despite the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the sector reflecting steady recovery towards 2021.
Bio-based platform chemicals largely find use in the pharma and agrochemicals sectors. While 2020 has been a negative year for the industry, analysts from Fact.MR anticipate very promising prospects for the duration of the assessment period, as far as the expansion of the bio-based platform chemicals market is concerned.
Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market Insights by Type
Itaconic acid, also known as methylene butanedioic acid or methylene succinic acid, is an organic compound produced with fermentation. Also, it is widely used as a substitute for petroleum-based products in the chemical production sector. The material is soluble in alcohol, including ethanol, methanol, and propanol. Also, the product is largely biodegradable. Further, the compound is used in the production of monoesters, and is reactive to pyrrolidones alternatives, which are used in applications such as detergents, shampoo, and more. The derivatives of the chemical find roles in chemical, pharmaceutical, and textile industries.
Bio-based itaconic acid is used as an alternative to acrylic acid, for the development and production of super absorbent polymer variants. The slump of fossil fuel consumption and demand for sustainable development are expected to boost demand through the forecast period, aiding growth of the bio-based platform chemicals market. One of the key factors holding back the use of itaconic acid is relatively higher costs as compared to other alternatives. Consequently, the material is primarily used in low volume applications.
Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market Insights by Application
Polymer production is a major segment in terms of applications in the bio-based platform chemicals market. Bio-based platform chemicals are key components for the production of polymers. These chemicals are more widely used in polymer manufacturing than other bio-based offerings. Lignocellulosic polymers are extensively used in high-value applications, including filters, films, and fibers. Developments in the bioplastics sector are still fairly new. However, the segment is likely to grow strongly in the near future.
Widening scope of use in the superabsorbent polymers industry for a large number of end-use offerings is a key factor driving the growth of the bio-based platform chemicals market. Superabsorbent polymers allow for the absorption and retention of large liquid volumes for materials such as aqueous solutions. This makes such polymers ideal for use in products such as adult incontinence pads, baby nappies, controlled release drugs, and absorbent medical dressings.
Platform chemicals used for the production of polymers include aspartic acid, glucaric acid, succinic acid, and 3-hydropropionic acid. Higher demand for bio-based polymers in construction, automotive, and pharma sectors is expected to generate revenue for the bio-based platform chemicals market during the assessment period.
Regional Outlook of Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market
North America, led by the United States, is a leading region as far as bio-based platform chemicals market share is concerned. Innovations in the field of renewable energy and emergence of bio-based products have resulted in the growth of the industry in the region. Also, easy access to bio-based feedstock is projected to create key growth opportunities for manufacturers in the region. Favorable policies by government bodies such as the USDA have boosted sales in the sector. The industry is also expected to reflect growth opportunities in Canada, owing to government initiatives and demand for bio-based products.
Europe is also a key market, supported by government policies under the Europe 2020 strategy towards sustainable growth of the economy. The Asia Pacific region has a displayed higher growth rate in the global bio-based platform chemicals market owing to recent regulations regarding environment protection and consumer awareness about bio-based offerings.
COVID-19 Impact on Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market
The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on the global economy, and is having a moderately adverse effect on the bio-based platform chemicals market. Bio-based platform chemicals find roles in pharmaceuticals, agriculture, cosmetics, and more. While supply chain disruptions are likely to hurt short-term prospects, decline of fossil fuel use during the crisis will create lucrative opportunities.
In the pharma sector, demand for bio-based platform chemicals is likely to remain high. Also, applications in the agrochemicals sector will gain traction, as governments continue to invest towards food security. These factors will influence market developments in the post pandemic era.
