Market Overview 2023-2028:
The global bio-plasticizers market size reached US$ 1.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% during 2023-2028.
Bio-plasticizers refer to biologically derived additives used for improving the flexibility, softness, texture, functional properties and volatility of plasticized polymers. Some of the commonly used bio-plasticizers include epoxidized plant oils, cardanol, isosorbide esters and citrates. They are derived from vegetable raw materials, such as soybean, palm, castor oil, citrates, stearic acid, starch, biomass, agricultural products and waste materials. In comparison to the traditionally used phthalates, bio-plasticizers are non-toxic, environment-friendly, resistant to leaching, miscible and highly cost-effective. As a result, they are extensively used for the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cables and resins, wire jackets, cables, food packaging material, medical equipment and automobile components.
Bio-plasticizers Market Trends:
A significant increase in the demand for PVC products across the globe is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Bio-plasticizers are widely used in the manufacturing of PVC products to enhance the stability, safety and effectiveness of flexible sheets and films, coated fabrics and electrical components. Moreover, the imposition of a ban on the use of phthalate-based plasticizers to produce consumer goods, food packaging materials and medical devices is providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, the widespread adoption of bio-plasticizers in construction materials is also contributing to the growth of the market. Bio-plasticizers aid in reducing the water requirement of the concrete and increasing the functional stability of other building materials. They are also highly effective in thermo-insulation panels, architectural molds and sculptures that require high-quality adhesives and sealants. Additionally, the development of fast-acting bio-plasticizers using rapidly renewable plant-based feedstock with enhanced productivity, minimal defects and enhanced biodegradability, are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including rising environmental consciousness among the masses, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting sustainable development, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
