DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6t7dz2/global_bio) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Bio Succinic Acid Market - Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.
The U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) considers succinic acid as one among the top twelve chemical building blocks. Succinic acid, as a platform chemical, is growing in demand in various applications. However, consumption of petroleum based succinic acid, as an intermediate, in manufacturing various chemicals, is limited due to its volatility of price and carbon footprints. These concerns led to the discovery of biological manufacturing of succinic acid.
The bio succinic acid market is forecast to grow at a significant rate over the next seven years. The major drivers for this growth will be volatility in fossil fuel prices, rise in carbon footprints, and an interest in using locally available raw materials. Furthermore, increasing global demand of green chemicals will trigger its adoption in wide range of applications, especially, in bio plastics, making it a strong platform chemical.
Bio succinic acid is primarily being used as a replacement for petrol based succinic acid in few applications such as solvents and lubricants, de-icer solutions, cosmetics, food and pharma. Furthermore, newer application such as 1,4-Butanediol (BDO), PBS, plasticizers and polyesters polyols market will accelerate the future growth of the market.
