Market Analysis: Global Furfural Market

Global furfural market is set to witness a steady CAGR of 4.75% in the forecast period of 2019- 2026. The report contains data of the base year 2018 and historic year 2017. Rising production opportunities and rising environmental concern are the factor for the market growth.

Market Definition: Global Furfural Market

Furfural is an organic compound which is a colorless liquid. Due to its superior physical properties, furfural is commonly used as a solvent in the production of refractory products, resin-bonded grinding wheels and butadiene extraction. They usually have thermosetting properties, physical resistance and corrosive resistance. They are also used as solvent for refining rosin and oil so they can enhance the characteristics of catalytic cracker and diesel fuel. They are widely used in applications such as flavour enhancer, gasoline additives, decolorizing agents among others.

Market Drivers:

  • Growing demand for furfuryl alcohol will drive the market
  • Increasing demand from industrial chemical manufacturing will also contribute as a factor for the market growth
  • Rising R&D activities will also enhance the market growth
  • Growing importance of bio- based solvents will also accelerate the growth of the market in the forecast period

Market Restraints:

  • Fluctuation in the cost of raw material will also hamper the market growth
  • Lack of process production process framework is another factor restricting the market growth
  • Inefficient technological advancement will also hamper the demand of the market

Key Developments in the Market:

  • In July 2018, Sappi today announced further progress in the growth of its biorefinery ability by announcing that it will build a demonstration plant to further expand its latest Xylex technology for Xylitol and Furfural production. They are planning to focus on building a sustainable and profitable business from the manufacture and sale of food ingredients, materials and chemical intermediates derived from C5 sugars produced as a co-product of our production of dissolving wood pulp and lignin produced in our global production of pulp
  • In July 2015, Oji Holdings Corporation announced that they are going to establish new technology so they can produce furfural from the hemicellulose. During the manufacture of dissolving pulp, this is constantly isolated, making commercial production of furfural possible. This will also help the company to use the furfural in different applications
