Renewable Chemicals - Winning Imperatives and Market Forecast
The global renewable chemicals market is estimated to reach US$ 67.13 billion in 2015 from about US$ 38.67 billion in 2010. The alcohols segment holds the largest market share, while the polymers segment is expected to have the highest growth rate due to the increasing applications of bio-polymers in the manufacture of biodegradable and compostable plastics and in consumer goods such as cell phones and laptops.

The major factor driving the growth of the renewable chemicals market is the growing consumer demand and governmental support for ‘green’ products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable chemicals also reduce dependence on finite non-renewable petroleum resources.
