About the Report

According to the latest report by Technavio, the push towards sustainability and a greener environment have forced the governments of many countries to shift to the production of bio-based platform chemicals.

“The European Union and industry leaders have launched a new European Joint Undertaking on Bio-based Industries, which will contribute hugely to the European market for the production of bio-based products,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio.

The latest report by Technavio also emphasizes economic growth in emerging areas like South America and Africa, which is expected to help boost market projections.

“Growing awareness and environmental sustainability in emerging economies will also result in new applications for itaconic acid, another product in the market. These new applications will inevitably spur growth in the overall market,” says Ghaus.
