Crude oil is conventionally used as a carbon feedstock for producing chemicals. However, the fluctuations in crude oil prices affect the prices of the raw materials considerably, which in turn, affects the costs of platform chemicals. In 2010, the price of Brent crude oil was around USD 77 per barrel. However, the price increased by nearly 41% in 2012. The price of crude oil per barrel decreased in the subsequent years, and by nearly 60% in 2016. The volatile prices of raw materials directly impact the revenue and profit margins of manufacturers due to which they are compelled to seek alternative solutions to maintain their profit margins. Bio-based platform chemicals have emerged as an alternative to petroleum-based chemicals owing to the comparatively stable costs. Thus, the volatility in crude oil prices will drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market: Strict Environmental Regulations And Policies

The rise in energy prices and growing awareness regarding the hazardous effects of conventional energy sources has led governments to invest in other alternatives, such as bio-based fuels to meet the growing demand for energy. In addition, government initiatives towards sustainability are also fueling the demand for bio-based platform chemicals. The increased demand for sustainable products has encouraged chemical manufacturers to use bio-based raw materials to produce alcohols, polymers, and other products. Moreover, the imposition of stringent regulations by the European Commission and the federal government agencies are leading manufacturers toward achieving a green environment with minimum or zero harmful emissions. Bio-based platform chemicals manufacturers are playing a crucial role in these winning imperatives as they are adhering to these regulations to achieve sustainable growth. Thus, strict environmental regulations and policies will drive the growth of the market.

“Other factors such as the increase in demand for biofuels, and the growing demand for paints and coatings, resins, and adhesives in the automotive segment will have a significant impact on the growth of the bio-based platform chemicals market value during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
