Bio Plasticizers Market by type (ESBO, Citrates, Castor oil, succinic acid & others), by application (packaging materials, medical devices, consumer goods, wires & cables, building & construction & others), by region - Trends & forecasts to 2020

Bio Plasticizers have found wide acceptance in various industries including transportation, medical, packaging, building & construction, and healthcare. Based on the application areas, the market for bio plasticizers can be broadly segmented into packaging materials, medical devices, consumer goods, wires & cables, building & construction, and others. The ban on phthalate plasticizers in consumer goods, medical products, and food packaging materials is driving the demand for bio plasticizers globally. Also, based on countries, the U.S., China, Germany, Japan, France, and India are the major users of bio plasticizers, with the U.S. being at the forefront.

The consumption trend of bio plasticizers varies in different regions depending upon its various types. For instance, the consumption trend in North America represents a mix of all the bio plasticizers. The North America is one of the biggest markets for bio plasticizers. It is a major market for bio plasticizers, especially ESBO plasticizer, which is mainly due to stringent environmental regulation and abundant availability of raw materials.

Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-growing markets for bio plasticizer in medical, wires & cables, and packaging materials applications. Merger & acquisitions, technological developments & innovations, and expansion are identified as key strategies to expand the bio plasticizer market.
