$700 Million Furfural Market - Global Forecast to 2024 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Furfural Market by Raw Material (Sugarcane Bagasse, Corncob, Rice Husk and Others), Application (Derivatives (Furfural Alcohol and Other Derivatives), solvent) and Region (Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa) - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The furfural market size is estimated to grow from USD 551 million in 2019 and to USD 700 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. The market is driven by the increasing use of various derivatives of furfural in different industries and shift toward green chemicals.

The corncob-based furfural segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Corncob is estimated to be the fastest-growing raw material for the manufacturing of furfural. This is due to the high pentosan content in corncobs, resulting in a high yield of furfural. The majority of the furfural manufacturing plants in the world use corncobs.

The derivatives segment is expected to be the largest application of furfural during the forecast period.

Furfural is majorly used in the manufacturing of furfural-based chemicals. Among the derivatives, furfuryl alcohol accounts for the largest consumption of furfural. This, in turn, is used in the manufacturing of furan resins. Apart from furfuryl alcohol, furfural is also used in the manufacturing of other derivatives such as THF, furoic acid, and tetrahydrofuranyl alcohol (THFA).

APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.

APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing furfural market during the forecast period. The region is the largest producer and consumer of furfural. China led the global market for furfural, and it is projected to continue during the forecast period. China is also the largest manufacturer and exporter of furfural globally. Besides China, the market for furfural is also propelled by countries such as Thailand and India.
