[170+ Pages Research Report] Bio-Renewable Chemicals Market to surpass USD 139.4 billion by 2030 from USD 55.4 billion in 2021 at a CAGR of 10.80% throughout the forecast period 2021-30.

Product Overview

Renewable chemicals, usually known as bio-based chemicals, are obtained from numerous renewable sources such as organic waste products, agricultural leftovers, agricultural feedstock, micro-organisms, and bio-mass. The bio-renewable chemical is a notion of “green chemistry”, which uses a natural renewable source of power to generate specific chemicals. These days, firms and governments around the world are stressing ecologically pleasant dealing. In addition to that, the shortage of non-renewable reserves also appeals to shareholders in the bio-renewable chemicals market. A rise in demand for fossil fuels leads to rising in the price of fuel-related goods and so, to reduce this dependence, the demand for bio-renewable chemicals is rising. The global market for bio-renewable chemicals is hindered due to the absence or shortage of raw materials used in the manufacturing of renewable chemicals.

Market Highlights

The global bio-renewable chemicals market is anticipated to exceed USD 139.4 billion by 2030 from USD 55.4 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of about 10.80% during the forecast period, i.e. 2020-2030. The global bio-renewable chemicals market is expected to grow based on the rising demand for alcohol (ethanol and methanol), green wrapping supplies, and consumer product packing materials. For every chemical, there are limited players in the market and they do not create any threat to each other. The demand for these commodities is high with roughly all production capacities being disbursed. The market is at an emerging stage and the firms are yet to stabilize their production. Thus the level of competition in the market is low.

Evolving technological innovations, an inclination of the population towards environment-friendly products, and supportive government policies are driving the growth of the renewable chemicals market. Plentiful raw materials, cheap labor costs, and rising demand for renewable chemicals in India and China are expected to boost the growth of the market for renewable chemicals. Rapid urbanization and industrialization in evolving markets of Asia Pacific (APAC) are further anticipated to boost the demand for renewable chemicals throughout the end-use productions.

Global Bio-renewable Chemicals Market Opportunity Analysis



Global Bio-renewable Chemicals Market: Segments

Ethanol segment to surge with the highest CAGR of XX% during 2020-2030

The global bio-renewable chemicals market is segmented by product type into alcohol (ethanol and methanol), organic acids (succinic acid, lactic acid), bio-polymers (starch blends, regenerated cellulose, PBS, bio-PET, PLA, PHA), glycerin, and others (bio-based, 3-PDO, ECH and 4-BDO). Among these, glycerin was the largest segment holding XX% of the total market share in 2019, and is expected to display a similar trend in the coming years. Glycerin is mostly used in the manufacture of bio-polymers, biofuels, and other chemical products. Lactic acid is likely to be the next leading product segment throughout the forecast period. Anthocyanin is the most preferred product in the food & beverages industries because it displays good heat, ph.

Global Bio-Renewable Chemicals Market: Drivers and Restraints

The surge in End-user Demand Augmenting Growth

Emerging technological innovations, people’s inclination towards eco-friendly goods, and supportive government policies are driving growth in the demand for renewable chemicals. In addition, rising demand for ethanol & methanol, green packaging materials, and consumer goods packaging materials is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

High Cost for Commercialization

The market for renewable chemicals is very niche, with few players in the global market. It is expected that rising consumer awareness of the environment will increase the adoption of green and eco-friendly chemicals. To meet the growing demand for renewable chemicals, pilot projects need to be commercialized and players need to make significant investments in research and development to upgrade the ongoing production technology and develop new products. While the market offers highly lucrative growth opportunities, high capital investment in the production of renewable chemicals compared to other conventional chemicals and polymers is expected to be a key challenge for market growth.
