Global Bio-Renewable Chemicals Market

Bio-renewable chemicals are referred as chemicals that are derived from renewable sources, including agricultural waste, agricultural feedstock, biomass, microorganisms, and organic waste products. Bio-renewable chemicals have less carbon footprint as compared to traditional petroleum-based chemicals. Some examples of commonly used bio-renewable chemicals include bio-glycerol, acetone, propanol, succinic acid, lactic acid, and others.

Surge in awareness for sustainability and eco-friendly activities have led the environmental regulating agencies of both developed and developed economies to increase efforts toward reducing environmental footprints. Several agencies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S.EPA), State Pollution Board (SPB), Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), European Union (EU), and others are constantly engaged in reducing environmental footprints by imposing various acts as regulations. For instance, the section 111 of the Clean Air Act regulates the emission of greenhouse gases from industries and impose independent regulation considering the severity index of emitted gases generated by processing of petrochemicals.

Petrochemicals create extraordinary amounts of pollution. Some of the most harmful pollutants include benzene, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde, chloroprene, PFAS, vinyl chloride, and trichloroethylene. Bio-renewable chemicals are produced from renewable bio-based feedstocks that make them clean and safe to use considering the environmental aspects. Furthermore, the price of petrochemicals varies significantly owing to the fact that petrochemicals are derived from petroleum which is a highly volatile commodity when price is considered. These aforementioned factors have led the bio-renewable chemicals to gain traction over petrochemicals in various end-use sectors; thus, fueling the growth of the bio-renewable chemicals market.

Furthermore, factors such as increase in technological advancements, rise in dynamics of renewable energy, improvements in economics of renewable, and growing concern for environmental protection activities have led consumers to shift towards using products derived from renewable resources. Furthermore, the customers are becoming aware about the benefits associated with the use of renewable-sourced products as compared to the synthetic ones. For instance, the use of renewable resources causes less air pollution, reduces dependency on synthetic processes, creates economic development and jobs in manufacturing, installation, and others.

Moreover, governments of both developed and developing economies are promoting the use of renewable resources. For instance, according to a report published by the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy in July 2022, the government has permitted foreign direct investment (FDI) up to 100% in the renewable sector. Furthermore, setting up of Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Parks to provide land and transmission to RE developers on a plug and play basis. These events have promoted the use of bio renewable chemicals for developing and manufacturing a wide range of renewable chemicals; thus, boosting the growth of the bio-renewable chemicals market.

However, the overall price of bio-renewable chemicals depends upon factors such as costs of feedstock, energy requirements, and marketability of products. These factors have made bio-renewable chemicals expensive as compared to synthetic chemicals. Furthermore, high processing costs and complex manufacturing processes leads to an increase in the overall prices of bio-renewable chemicals. Also, the manufacturing of bio-renewable chemicals requires big machinery and skilled workforce. These factors directly influence the price of bio-renewable chemicals and make them costlier. Moreover, when compared to synthetic counterparts, some bio-renewable chemicals have proved to be exceedingly expensive. This factor may restrain the growth of the bio-renewable chemicals during the forecast period.

In addition to this, lack of consumer understanding and low purchasing power of these chemicals in Asia-Pacific and African region may restrict the consumption of bio-renewable chemicals among various end use sectors; thus, hampering the growth of the bio-renewable chemicals market.

On the contrary, factors such as preservation of the environment, health benefits, and ethical aspects of the production process have surged the popularity of environment friendly products. Furthermore, the increasing regulatory pressure imposed by several environment protection agencies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S.EPA), Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), European Union (EU), and others have led the chemical manufacturers to make rapid transition towards using renewable resources-based raw materials. Bio-renewable chemicals being an environmentally-friendly product poses less threat to environment. Moreover, the production and trading of bio-renewable chemicals is duty free in many countries. These factors have surged the popularity of bio-renewable chemicals in various end use sectors; thus, creating lucrative opportunities for the market.

The global bio-renewable chemicals market is segmented into type, applicationand region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into glycerol, lactic acid, succinic acid, acetone, and others. By application, it is classified into packaging, food & beverages, personal care & cosmetics, chemical industry, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. 

Global Bio-Renewable Chemicals Market

By type, the glycerol dominated the global market and is anticipated to grow at a highest CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. The increasing disposable income coupled with awareness for skin care activities have led the cosmetic sector in both developed and developing economies to witness a significant growth where glycerin is widely used as a denaturant, fragrance ingredient, hair conditioning agent, humectant, and others in various cosmetic and personal care products. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the bio-renewable chemicals market for glycerin type.

Furthermore, factors such as increase in R&D activities, low cost of production, and a huge workforce availability have led the pharmaceutical sector to witness a significant growth where glycerol is used to improve smoothness and taste of medicines. For instance, according to a report published by India Brands Equity Foundation, Indian drugs and pharma exports reached $5.78 billion between April 2021- June 2021. This is anticipated to increase the demand for bio-renewable chemicals market for glycerol type in the growing pharmaceutical sector.
