Bio Plasticizers Market Insights
The global bio plasticizers market is anticipated to register a CAGR of more than 10% over the forecast period. Rapid growth in end-user industries in emerging countries such as India, China, and Brazil are projected to boost the bio plasticizers market over the coming years. The reduced supply of harmful phthalate such as DBP, BBP, DEP, and DOP coupled with increasing consumer awareness are expected to stimulate the market growth.
Stringing regulations on production of phthalate-based plasticizers in consumer goods, food packaging material, and medical products have resulted in the growth of eco-friendly bio-based plasticizers. These bio-plasticizers are extensively used for cable manufacturing and offer various advantages in terms of electrical and temperature performance.
However, change in environmental regulations, protocols, and blending policies are anticipated to restrain the market growth over the coming years. In addition, packaging companies have already started manufacturing cost-efficient, yet eco-friendly petrochemicals alternatives without compromising on product performance. These factors are likely to fuel the demand for the product over the forecast period.
Bio Plasticizers Market: Product Insights
The bio plasticizers market is segmented into Citrates, Castor Oil, ESBO, and Succinic Acid, based on the product type.
ESBO accounted for the majority of market share in 2016 due to its increased application in producing a variety of products. The demand for castor oil is likely to increase over the coming years owing to its increased application. Castor oil is used in producing flexible, semi-rigid, rigid, and bio plasticizers. It displays resistance to hydrolysis, pigment dispersion, and has high compatibility with polyether polyols.
Succinic acids segment is also projected to register a significant growth over the coming years. These acids help aid the production of bio-based additives which are phthalate-free and has higher renewability content.
