Growth Boosters and Top Barriers

Bio-Based Chemicals come from biological origins including plants, feedstock, trees, biological waste, and crops. These chemicals are considered the best alternative to traditional chemicals as they play an essential role when it comes to lessening the dependency on fossil fuels. This leads to significant reduction in carbon emission levels, in addition to maintaining the ecological balance. Among the raw materials, Lignocellulose is the most commonly available and used raw material for the production of biofuels.

Stringent policies with regard to the production of synthetic chemicals are expected to favor the market in the long run. Subsidies and incentives implemented by governments to bring down emissions are bound to aid in market growth. This can be exemplified by the Renewable Chemicals Act started in 2017 by the U.S. government. It helps provide a tax credit to the bio-chemical vendors in the country.

Emergence of a number of bio-refineries does wonders for the Bio-Based Chemicals market as well. With the increasing focus on sustaining a consistent supply chain of raw materials in traditional industries like automotive backed by technological advancements could give rise to a flurry of investment opportunities. Also, the shale gas boom in North America has prompted the demand for bio-based polymers as well as intermediates.
