Bio succinic acid is primarily being used as a replacement for petrol based succinic acid in few applications such as solvents and lubricants, de-icer solutions, cosmetics, food and pharma. Furthermore, newer application such as 1,4-Butanediol (BDO), PBS, plasticizers and polyesters polyols market will accelerate the future growth of the market. Additionally, higher cost of crude oil, increase in investments for green chemicals, demand for renewable chemicals, and increase in government support will further boost the growth of the market. However, higher price of bio succinic acid and lengthy extraction processes are primarily restraining the market growth for the next few years. The global bio based succinic acid market is expected to reach market volume of 710.0 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 45.6% during 2013-2020.
Various industrial application markets analyzed in the study includes BDO, polyester polyols, PBS, plasticizers, resins, coatings, & pigments, solvents & lubricants, alkyd resins, and de-icer solutions. The resins, coatings, & pigments market generated maximum revenue in the year 2013. However, seven years down the line, BDO is expected to emerge as the largest application segment. This is largely due to higher consumption of bio succinic acid in the production of BDO, as a replacement of maleic anhydride. It is estimated that 1.2 MT of bio succinic acid is needed to replace 1 MT of maleic anhydride.
Among the four geographic markets, namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and RoW; Europe was the largest consumer of bio succinic acid in 2013. Stringent regulations in Europe towards carbon footprints have enabled significant application of bio succinic acid in various chemical manufacturing units. However, Asia Pacific will be the fastest growing market with an expected CAGR of 49.5% during 2013 to 2020.
The major companies profiled in this report include BioAmber, Myraint, DSM, Mitsui & Co, Mitsubishi, BASF, Roquette Frerse S.A, Purac and Reverdia.
