The global furfuryl alcohol market grew at a CAGR of around 3% during 2015-2020. Furfuryl alcohol (C5H6O2) refers to a colorless or pale-yellow organic compound which is majorly extracted from waste biomass such as corncobs, rice hulls, sugarcane bagasse, etc. It can be synthesized by the continuous vapor-phase hydrogenation of furfural or its catalytic reduction using nickel and copper chromium oxide. It is denser than water, turns amber to black in air and finds extensive application as a solvent in making dark corrosion-resistant resins. It can also be used along with other solvents for cleaning and paint-removing applications. Besides this, it is employed in the food and beverages (F&B) industry as a flavoring agent.
Furfuryl alcohol is employed in various end use industries across the globe. For instance, it is utilized as a filler in the manufacturing of paints, textiles and plastics, and a binding agent in paints and sand. It also finds application in the casting of steel and iron and the insulation of electrical components. Additionally, the increasing construction activities across the globe are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, furfuryl alcohol is gaining traction in surface treatments of metals, hardening agents, corrosion inhibitors, polishing agents, rust inhibitors and water repellants. Apart from this, the rising extraction of resources, such as industrial and natural gas, is also bolstering the market growth. Moreover, the escalating demand for paper plates, cutlery and roasters, coupled with the growing usage of condiments and seasoning, is positively influencing the market. Besides this, as furfuryl alcohol derived from hydrolyzed biomass waste is a renewable material, the increasing environmental concerns are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global furfuryl alcohol market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
