Market Potential and Pitfalls

The bio-based platform chemicals market is likely to gain impetus in the coming years owing to an increased demand in applications like construction, consumer goods, and automotive vehicles. The increased use of fossil fuels has led to environment concerns across the world owing to the negative impact of the petroleum-based polymers. Strict mandates have been imposed in order to limit the carbon footprint, which is increasing the adoption of bio-based platform chemicals across the globe. The European Commission has set up the REACH initiative for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals. With the overall shift in consumer preference towards products which are environmentally safe coupled with the rising concern regarding the emission of carbon, the bio-based platform chemicals market is predicted to foster. The market is booming across the globe owing to their sustainability and low carbon footprint, when compared to other conventional polymers. The dependency on fossil fuels has reduced for the production of polymers which is widely used in a large number of applications, thereby fueling the demand for bio-based platform chemicals.

Governments have initiated various regulations curbing the use of petroleum-based chemicals, creating many growth avenues for the bio-based platform chemicals market. Further, the introduction of various policies in favor of eco-friendly products is contributing heavily to the ascension of the bio-based platform chemicals market. However, the capital and energy-intensive nature of bio-based platform chemicals have created many challenges for market vendors in the market.
On the contrary, bio-based chemicals are considered an expensive procedure which is energy and capital intensive. This is likely to impede the market growth in the coming years as petroleum-based chemicals are very cheap to produce. On a brighter note, with technological advancements, cost of production is likely to reduce in the long run.
