According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the bio-plasticizer market looks attractive with opportunities in the packaging, medical device, consumer goods, wire & cable, and building & construction industries. The global bio-plasticizer market is expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach an estimated $2.2 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 10% to 12% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are stringent environment regulations and increasing health concern.
In this market, various type of bio-plasticizer, such as ESBO (Epoxidized soybean oil), citrates, castor oil, and succinic acid are used as an additive in polymers to enhance flexibility, softness, and volatility. ESBO based bio-plasticizer will remain the largest material type and it is also expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to restriction on phthalate plasticizer, ease of availability, and growth in packaging materials, medical devices, and consumer goods.
Within the bio-plasticizer market, packaging will remain the largest end use industry and it is also expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period supported by increasing demand for eco-friendly plastics in the food and beverages, household products, personal care, and pharmaceutical packaging.
Asia Pacific will remain the largest region by value and volume and it is also expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period, supported by increasing demand for PVC plastics in construction, automotive, packaging, food and medical industries in emerging countries, such as China and India.
Dow Chemical, Evonik Industries, Solvay, Lanxess, Polyone, Bioamber, Danisco, Emery Oleochemicals, Matrica, Myriant Corporation, Hebei plasticizers, Jiangxi East Huge Dragon Chemical, and Vertellus Specialties Inc. are among the major bio-plasticizer providers.
