Furfural Derivatives Market Analysis 2020-2027:

Furfural is an organic intermediate derived from agricultural residues, such as corncob, rice husk, and sugarcane bagasse or wooden residues. It is used for manufacturing furan-based biochemicals and biofuels. Furfural is a solvent produced through the acid hydrolysis of pentosan, which might be present in biomasses, including bagasse, corn cobs, rice hulls, and oats hulls. The coloration of furfural changes to a dark red/brown when exposed to sunlight in presence of oxygen. It is particularly used within the production of derivatives consisting of furoic acid, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA) for refining lubricating oils as selective solvents in agriculture, plastics, pharmaceutical, and oil & gasoline commercial application. Furfural has gained acceptance alternatively for petrochemicals as a building block for polymers and solid elastomers. It is widely utilized in industries inclusive of agrochemicals, food & beverages, business chemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and refineries.
