Global Biochemicals Industry Thrives in the Circular Economy Shift: Role of Biomass-derived Chemicals and Materials -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "The Global Market for Biochemical Feedstocks and Intermediates 2024-2034" report has been added to's offering.

The global shift towards a circular economy is fostering significant growth in the biochemicals industry. Chemicals and materials derived from biomass are playing a pivotal role in this transition.

Biobased feedstocks and intermediates are being converted into a diverse range of marketable products through thermal, biological, and chemical processes. These feedstocks are fractionated and processed into key intermediates, acting as platforms for further specialized conversion into final market products, such as fuels and chemicals.

Key Market Insights:

The report provides an all-encompassing overview of the global biochemicals industry. It delves into essential feedstocks, including plant-based sources (starch, sugar crops, lignocellulose, oils), waste streams (food, agricultural, forestry, municipal), and microbial & mineral sources.

The study analyzes production pathways, encompassing biochemical, thermochemical, chemical/catalytic conversion, and hybrid processes. Major intermediate platform chemicals are profiled based on their sources, applications, and global production volumes. Furthermore, end-use markets explored encompass biofuels, bioplastics, solvents, lubricants, surfactants, pharmaceuticals, food additives, and personal care.

Global Producers and Key Players:

The report also highlights the profiles of 102 global producers of biochemicals and intermediates. Among the companies featured are Algenol, Avantium, Bloom Biorenewables SA, Dispersa, Genomatica, LanzaTech, Novozymes, UPM, and Viridis Chemical. Market drivers, trends, and challenges are dissected, providing a comprehensive outlook. The report furnishes market size forecasts spanning from 2018 to 2034.
