Foreseeing the rising importance of renewable chemicals, major players in the chemicals industry such as Dow and BASF have already begun focusing on this market. Though the alcohols segment holds the largest share in the overall renewable chemicals market, the polymers segment is expected to gain the maximum growth rate for the next five years. Bio-polymers are expected to command a significant share in the overall polymers market mostly due to their applications in the manufacture of biodegradable and compostable plastics and consumer goods such as cell phones and laptops. Platform chemicals also play an important role in the renewable chemicals market since their multiple functional groups can be converted to families of other highly useful chemicals.
