Increasing environmental awareness on the part of product manufacturers and the desire to reduce dependency on oil are the leading drivers behind the $2.4 billion global market for biorenewable chemicals (BRC) in 2010. This steadily growing market has experienced a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.8%, a growth trend that is going to increase as the world resumes a more normal production page and new bio-based chemicals such as bioethylene come to market. By 2015 the BRC market will be worth $6.8 billion, a CAGR of 22.8% between 2010 and 2015. The largest region for BRC sales continues to be the U.S., which captured 21.6% of the BRC market in 2009.

The platform biorenewable chemicals (PBC) glycerin and lactic acid make up the bulk of biorenewable chemicals being sold in 2010, accounting for 79.2% of the market. There is a large range in market maturity for PBCs, ranging from mature markets such as lactic acid to nascent markets for chemicals such as succinic acid.

Compared to the platform chemicals market, the intermediate biorenewable chemicals (IBC) market is much more nascent, particularly in relation to its potential. In 2010, IBCs accounted for $574.9 million of the BRC market; however this will grow to $2.5 billion in 2015 and account for 37.0% of biorenewable chemical sales. The strongest growth will be for secondary chemicals such as polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) and bioethylene that are used to manufacture bio-based plastics.

Biorenewable Chemicals World Market by SBI Energy provides key insight into current and future markets for biorenewable chemicals worldwide, with a particular emphasis on the U.S. market. The analysis includes definitions, current product offerings and market detail on the following segments:

  • Industrial organic acids, amino acids and other organic compounds, made from biorenewable feedstocks such as corn, oilseeds and sugarcane, which can be used as the building blocks for alternatives to petroleum-based chemicals. These chemicals are referred to as platform biorenewable chemicals (PBC).
  • Industrial organic acids and polymers that are manufactured from platform biorenewable chemicals and are themselves key chemical components for the manufacture of many other chemicals and products. These chemicals are referred to as intermediate biorenewable chemicals (IBC).
The report also analyzes the key industries that make use of biorenewable chemicals for their end products. These include bioplastics, cleaners, solvents and adhesives.
