Furfural (C4H3OCHO) is a naturally occurring compound formed by dehydrating carbon sugars and obtained from the hemicellulose fraction of lignocellulosic biomass. It is a versatile chemical, which is widely utilized as a raw material to produce phenol-furfural-resins. It can also be converted into furfuryl alcohol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA), tetrahydrofuran, furan, and diols. Amongst these, furfuryl alcohol finds extensive applications as a flavoring agent and filler in the manufacturing of paints, textiles, and plastics across the globe, which is positively influencing their overall sales.
Furfural Market Trends:
The wide applications of furfural in various end use industries represent one of the primary factors bolstering the market growth. For instance, it is used to manufacture plastics, adhesives, nematicides, inks, antacids, fungicides, fertilizers, and flavoring compounds worldwide. In addition to this, the escalating demand for packaged food products on account of hectic schedules, increasing working population, inflating income levels and convenience offered is fueling the adoption of furfural in the food and beverage (F&B) industry. Moreover, the increasing shortage of food due to rapid urbanization, growing global population, changing climatic conditions, and declining arable land area is catalyzing the demand for furfural in the manufacturing of pesticides. Furthermore, the growing focus on personal health and hygiene is driving the demand for furfural for making perfumes and fragrances. Its derivatives are also finding extensive applications in manufacturing fiberglass, and aircraft and automobile components. Apart from this, due to the growing environmental concerns and the need for minimizing dependence on petrochemicals, furfurals are gaining traction as a potential source to produce biofuels. Moreover, emerging novel applications of furfural are projected to strengthen the market growth.
