Global Bio-plasticisers Market Outlook

The global bio-plasticisers market size reached a value of USD 1.37 billion in 2021. The market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.70% during 2023-2028 to reach a value of USD 1.82 billion in 2027.

 

Increased Efficiency, Escalating Eco-Consciousness, Stringent Government Regulations, and Rising Need to Reduce the Dependency on Fossil Fuels to be the Key Trends in the Bio-plasticisers Market 

Bio-plasticisers are safe and sustainable materials that are used to turn stiff synthetic polymers, such as PVC into soft resins for various applications that demand flexibility. These plasticisers are digestible and are extensively used as an alternative to conventional plasticisers, such as phthalates without any alteration in processing.

 

  • The bio-plasticisers offer multiple advantages, such as superior technical and processing characteristics, enhanced flexibility, and improved chemical properties of plastic products, and oil resistance, among others.
  • The surging eco-consciousness and the growing awareness about the harmful impacts of conventional plasticisers on the environment are leading to the increased use of bio-plasticisers.
  • The emerging need to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels is leading to the replacement of conventional petroleum-based phthalate plasticisers with bio-plasticisers.
  • There are stringent government regulations, such as the ban on fossil fuel-made conventional plasticisers to reduce the environmental impacts and to ensure the safe packaging of food products.
  • The strong presence of market players and their efforts to launch superior quality bio-plasticisers that meet customer expectations are supporting the market growth. In April 2021, BASF introduced the bio-plasticisers, such as Hexamoll DINCH BMB and Palatinol 10-P BMB made of organic waste or vegetable oils for the polyvinyl chloride industry.

Availability of Different Types of Eco-friendly Plasticisers to Aid the Bio-plasticisers Market

The epoxidised soybean oil is a nontoxic and yellow-coloured liquid, which is developed from soybean oil through the process of epoxidation. The epoxidised soybean oil is easily available, renewable, and cost-effective, thus resulting in its wider utilisation across various end-use sectors.

 

The castor-oil-based bio-plasticisers are extensively used in various natural and synthetic resins, like polyvinyl chloride, nitrocellulose, ethylcellulose, and rubber polymers for improved elongation. They provide superior electrical insulating properties, excellent lubricity, cold-crack resistance, and improved heat stability.

 

Citrate plasticisers provide an improved toxicological profile and are compatible with various polymers, which is leading to their increasing use as an alternative to phthalate plasticisers in different technical applications. There is expanding availability of non-VOC citric bio-plasticisers that are approved for food contacts and are used in interior applications where no emission is required.

 

There is an increasing demand for succinate acid-made plasticisers of average molecular weight owing to their reduced viscosity, enhanced paste stability, and low-temperature flexibility in synthetic polymer compounds. The market players are making strong efforts in offering plasticisers made from succinic acid, a naturally occurring substance as they have a reduced environmental footprint when compared to adipic acid-based plasticisers.

 

Rising Utilisation in the Packaging Sector to Support the Bio-plasticisers Market Expansion 

The expanding e-commerce channels owing to advantages, like the convenience, are leading to the increasing use of bio-plasticisers in the packaging sector, particularly in the case of food products. The stringent regulations regarding the safe packaging of food items are resulting in the application of non-toxic bio-plasticisers as they do not have an impact on the taste of packaged food. Also, the lightweight of bio-plasticisers results in the reduced use of fuel during transportation, thus being economical and reduces the environmental footprint.

 

The bio-plasticisers are extensively used as additives in consumer goods, such as cosmetics, to provide a smooth texture. Also, there is expanding use of bio-plasticisers in the production of consumer goods, such as toys, to obtain more flexibility and address the growing safety concerns. The increasing production of automobiles due to improved living standards and the surging demand for environment-friendly vehicles are leading to the increasing use of bio-plasticisers in automotive production. Also, automobile producers are adopting bio-plasticisers to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels.

 

The increasing construction of buildings owing to rapid urbanisation is leading to the growing use of bio-plasticisers in cement mortar mixes to reduce viscosity and boost performance with more flexibility.
