Global Bio-Plasticizers Market Report 2021: Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts to 2026: Augmenting Demand for Flexible PVC & Prohibition on Phthalate-Based Plasticizers –

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Bio-Plasticizers Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Bio-Plasticizers Market is projected to register a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. Owing to the pandemic scenario, the construction activities were on temporary halt due to the government-imposed lockdown, thus led to a decrease in the consumption of bio-plasticizers based flooring and wall coverings, wires, and cables, which in turn negatively impacts the market demand for bio-plasticizers.

However, the demand for packaging from the food and eCommerce segment has been significantly increasing during this situation, which in turn stimulates the demand for packaging material made up of bio-plasticizers, thus enhancing the market growth.

Over the short term, the augmenting demand of bio-plasticizers for flexible PVC and prohibition on phthalate-based plasticizers are expected to drive the market growth.

High cost of bio-plasticizers, when compared with conventional plasticizers, is likely to hinder the markets growth.

Ongoing research on bio-based plasticizers is likely to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market and is also likely to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Flooring and Wall Covering

  • Bio-Plasticizers help in reducing water requirements and make concrete strong and workable. These are generally organic or a combination of organic and inorganic substances that help reduce water content for workability.
  • The quantity of plasticizers added is about 0.1% to 0.4% by weight of cement. This amount reduces 5% to 15% of the water requirement and also leads to the increment of workability from about 3 to 8 cm slump. A plasticizer, in general, entrains less than 2% air.
  • In 2019, the total value of new construction put in place was about USD 1,365 billion in the United States and reached about USD 1,429 billion in 2020, with a growth rate of about 4.5%, thus led to an increase in the demand for flooring and wall covering, which in turn increases the demand of the bio-plasticizers market.
  • Thus, with the growing demand for the conservation of water resources, the usage of plasticizers is rapidly increasing in flooring and wall coverings.
  • Owing to all these factors, the demand for bio-plasticizers is likely to grow across the world during the forecast period.
