This report examines the global trends and forecasts for the renewable chemicals
market looking at alcohols (ethanol, methanol), biopolymers (starch, pla, pha,
polyethylene & others), platform chemicals and various others to the year 2018.

The renewable chemicals market includes all the chemicals obtained from renewable
feedstock such as agricultural raw materials, agricultural waste products or biomass
microorganisms etc. The development of this market is driven by the fact that renewable
chemicals decouple economic growth from finite, non-renewable resource consumption, and
also help diversify the feedstock portfolio.

The market is currently facing considerable competition from conventional chemicals
derived from petrochemical feedstock. Because the chemicals market is susceptible to the
volatility in crude oil prices, market participants are increasingly experiencing the need
to make a paradigm shift from petrochemical feedstock to renewable feedstock. This move
would not only bring in economic benefits, it would also successfully address the rising
concern over greenhouse gas emissions and their lasting impact on the natural environment.

This report relies on various secondary sources such as company’s annual reports,
organizational websites and databases to identify and collect information vital for this
extensive commercial study of renewable chemicals. The primary sources – selected experts
from related industries and selected suppliers have been interviewed to obtain and verify
critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of renewable chemicals
