Global Bio-Based Platform Chemicals Market

Platform Chemicals are building blocks that can be transformed into an extensive variety of chemicals or materials like fiber products and starch derivatives. They constitute an intermediate molecule (such as C5-C6 Carbohydrates, syngas, lignin, pyrolytic acid) whose structure enables the generation of a number of derivatives at a competitive cost. A platform ranges from single carbon molecules such as biogas and syngas, to mixed carbon-carbohydrates stream. These platforms can be converted to a wide range of marketable products by blending thermal, biological and chemical processes. Today, much of these platform chemicals production is being driven by the use of renewable and sustainable resources. The interest in green resources in recent years, due to a decline in the availability of petrochemical resources and an increase in concerns about global warming, has been steering the development of bio-based chemicals. Made from renewable raw materials, bio-based platform chemicals offer immense potential for decarbonizing everyday products, enabling everything from shoe soles to plastics and car parts to be made bio-based.


The end-users of platformchemicals are chemical distributors, and industries that manufacture products ranging from detergents and cosmetics to imaging and printing chemicals, aerosols, inks, paints, toners, construction chemicals, adhesives, lubricants and fragrances.

Market Dynamics

For the production of commercial products, the conventional fossil-based base chemicals are oxidized, while bio-based platform chemicals are chemically reduced. Oxidation is a highly random process, unlike reduction, and it produces more chemical waste, even after applying good and specific catalysts. Bio-based platform chemicals can be produced at a competitive cost, are capable of allowing exploitation of the scale and scope economies, and facilitate the de-carbonization of the environment. These factors have been driving their rapid market growth, and numerous sectors are now looking to increase their renewable productspercentage.
The market restraints for these platform chemicals could be the fact that products made out them need to perform as good as the ones made out of their petrochemical equivalents.

Market Segmentation

The market is segmented in terms of:
-> Chemical Type:
--> C-3 (Glycerol; 3-Hydroxypropionic Acid)
--> C-4 (Succinic Acid; Fumaric Acid; Malic Acid; Aspartic Acid)
--> C-5 (Levulinic Acid; Glutamic Acid; Itaconic Acid; Xylitol)
--> C-6 (Sorbitol; Glucaric Acid; 2,5-Furan Dicarboxylic Acid)

Regional/Geographic Analysis

Themarket is segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.Rapidly growing economies such as the BRIC countries are creating a competitive marketplace, as they are transitioning to green products due to a rise in oil prices, population growth, and limited availability of non-renewable resources. The ever-strengthening economic positions of market sectors like agriculture, forestry, and energy in these nations is further facilitating market penetration.


Brand owners today are strongly demanding bio-based chemicals, and opening doors to a plethora of bio-based products like food, feed, chemicals; and bioenergy such as fuel, power and heat. Countries are now reducing their over-dependency on fossil fuel imports, and diversifying their energy sources. The renewable chemical sector is taking bio-based chemicals into the mainstream to ensure performance, delivery, competitive pricing and quality. The bio economy is being commended as a second industrial revolution, and the future of versatile bio-based platform chemicals looks bright.
