Renewable chemicals, also known as "bio-based chemicals," are those derived from renewable resources such as agricultural feedstock, agricultural waste, organic waste products, biomass, and microorganisms. Renewable chemicals have emerged as potential substitutes for petroleum-based chemicals due to their lower carbon constituent and environmentally friendly characteristics. Some of the most promising biopolymers are polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates, which can be produced from nontoxic renewable feedstock.
Global Renewable Chemicals Market Dynamics
- Stringent Regulations Associated with Environment Safety
There are various strict regulations and government initiatives to improve the environment, so renewable chemicals are increasing dramatically in almost every country. Brazil, for example, has been experimenting with programs aimed at ethanol made from sugar cane and biodiesel in the field of renewable fuel. In this regard, approximately 45 percent of Brazil's energy and 18 percent of its fuels are already renewable. On the other hand, the Air Pollution Control Act is the main piece of air pollution legislation in Japan. The government has set a target of a 26% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. (25.4 percent compared to 2005). Such stringent environmental regulations and initiatives will directly impact the growth of the renewable chemicals market.
- High Demand for the Renewable Chemicals
The rising demand for ethanol and methanol, green packaging materials, and consumer goods packaging materials is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. There is a high demand for these market chemicals because of the consistent production volumes consumed in various global locations.
Furthermore, the factors such as the cheap labor cost, abundant raw materials, and cheap and increasing demand for renewable chemicals in China and India will further propel the growth rate of the renewable chemicals market. Additionally, rapid urbanization and industrialization will also drive market value growth.
- Focus Towards Technology and Growing Awareness
Furthermore, various manufacturers and researchers focus on new technology that may replace fossil fuels, extending profitable opportunities to the market players from 2023 to 2030.
- Growing awareness of the need to reduce carbon footprints
Additionally, the growing awareness of the need to reduce carbon footprints to deal with issues such as landfills, global warming, and rising consumer preferences for green and natural products will further expand the future growth of the renewable chemicals market.
- Huge capital requirement
The higher upfront cost of construction and technology investment may prevent the growth and implementation of renewable chemicals, particularly in areas where the potential exists but investors are lacking. In many regions, higher construction costs cause institutions to view renewable chemical projects as risky, resulting in a negative attitude toward renewables that could impact thousands of lives. The setbacks and unintended consequences may hamper the growth of the renewable chemicals market.
- High competition
Start-ups and young companies are willing to take on challenges and successfully implement renewable chemical projects; however, the existing market players and their market influence make it extremely difficult to overcome the challenges imposed by existing or conventional energy sources. Such technical limitations and development obstacles may challenge the renewable chemicals market growth rate over the forecast period.
