Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Industrial Applications of Renewable Alcohols to Boost Market Growth

Renewable alcohols are used in various industrial applications such as solvents, fuel additives, and beverages, which will drive market growth. Renewable alcohols mainly comprise methanol and ethanol. Fuels such as regular gasoline are increasingly blended with ethanol as an oxygenate additive. Bio-based ethanol is also added to the product catalogs of some businesses due to its advantages of being ecologically sound.

For example, Braskem created the first sugarcane-based ethanol-based partly renewable solvent in April 2019. The HE-70S product from the oxygenated solvents group uses bio-based carbon as a raw material. On the other hand, methanol is used to manufacture formaldehyde and acetic acid, which are used in solvents, foams, plywood subfloors, adhesives, and windshield washer fluid. As a result, during the anticipated time frame, increased demand for renewable alcohol will propel the growth of the market.

However, intricate manufacturing processes and high-cost processing result in an increase in the total cost, eventually hindering the renewable chemicals market growth.

Government in the Asia Pacific to Promote Production of Eco-Friendly Products and Chemicals

In 2020, the Asia Pacific renewable chemicals market share was valued at USD 71.43 billion. Governments in the region are promoting environment-friendly products and chemicals in response to growing environmental concerns. As a result, demand for these chemicals is increasing, leading to market growth in Asia Pacific. China has the largest market share and is the fastest-growing country in the area. The need for bio-based chemicals in China is fueled by rising bio-polymer manufacturing, increased research and development efforts, and a burgeoning chemical sector.

Due to the rise in the e-commerce and food & beverage industries, the U.S. is a prominent contributor in North America. As a result, the demand for ketones and biopolymers in packaging and beverage applications is expanding. The strong demand for the commodity in Europe is linked to the expansion of the automotive sector. The rising use of ethylene glycol fuels regional development as a coolant for engines since it provides greater protection against boil-over, freezing, cavitation, erosion, and corrosion.

The increased consumption of alcohols, such as ethanol and methanol, in the solvents sector is attributable to the market expansion in Latin America. These alcohols are used in the cosmetics, drinks, and medicines industries.

Furthermore, the expansion of the pharmaceutical business in the Middle East & Africa will result in significant market growth shortly. As a result of this expansion, demand for biopolymers in tissue engineering and drug delivery applications is expanding. As a result, the pharmaceutical industry’s rapid growth supports the Middle East & Africa market growth.

Competitive Landscape-

Key Players to Focus on Product Innovations

Capacity improvement, product innovation, acquisitions, and collaborations are part of the market growth strategies for key firms such as Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (ADM), BRASKEM, Trucent, and others.

Industry Development-

January 2021: Varennes Carbon Recycling, a waste-to-low-carbon-fuels plant in Canada, signed a commercial deal with Shell Canada.
