The drivers for renewable chemical market include abundant & low-cost feedstock, technological innovations, consumer acceptance for eco-friendly products, and government support for eco-friendly sources and processes. The factors hindering the growth of the renewable chemicals market are high price when compared to the conventional polymers and associated performance issues. However, with the increasing research and innovation, improvement is expected in the near future. The growth opportunities for the renewable chemicals market are increasing scope in end-user segments, new raw materials, under penetration in the Asian countries, and potential for cost reduction through economy of scale.

Ethanol is the most commercialized segment among all the major renewable chemicals. The U.S. and Brazil together account for more than 80.0% of the global ethanol production. There is ample scope of growth in Canada, Europe, and developing nations such as China and India in the Asian region. In the bio-polymers segment; bio-PET and bio-PE together accounts for more than 50.0% share, in terms of volume. Bio-PET is projected to register the highest CAGR of over 20.0% (by volume), followed by PLA during the forecast period.
