Backed by the rigid environment-based regulatory standards, Europe has taken the taken the lead in the global market. Its share in 2018 reached 33.75 percent of the global market, thanks to the surge in the supply networks of bio-based feedstock, comprising bio-refineries as well as biochemicals. The regional market’s growth is further bolstered by the depletion of natural resources, surge in crude oil prices, and stringent government regulations. As a result, the European market had touched USD 19,950.8 million in the year 2018 while its growth rate is anticipated to be 10.85 percent in the years ahead.
The second lead has been secured by the APAC market, since the region is increasingly witnessing rapid industrialization and increase in the number of favorable regulatory policies. Asia Pacific is brimming with a host of opportunities for the players, given the significant production levels and the consumption rate escalating in India and other countries. Government policies in India, China, and Japan are mostly aimed at enhancing the efficiency, cut down price volatility in petroleum-based items, and elevate the adoption of eco-friendly products, which should foster the demand for bio-based chemicals in the following years. Therefore, in the ensuing years, the APAC market can achieve the fastest growth rate of 11.32 percent, thanks to the large-scale availability of required raw materials, and frequent technical developments.
