Report Description

Global Green Chemicals Market is likely to showcase robust growth during the forecast period (2021-2027).
Agriculture sector contributes a considerable share to gross domestic product (GDP) of a country and many sector relies on it. Ever growing agriculture sector uses fertilizers to boost the production of crops qualitatively and quantitatively. Since synthetic fertilizers are toxic in nature and leads to severe diseases when consumed to long time therefore, farmers are shifting to organic farming techniques which uses biofertilizers and biopesticides to farm crops. Furthermore, fertilizer manufacturers are increasingly focusing on to produce organic fertilizers owing to increasing demand from the sector. In addition to this, byproducts obtained from wheat, maize, corn, sugarcane, beet, etc. hold wide applications in food & beverages and automotive industries which have shown exponential increase over the decades. Bioethanol which is made from grains, grapes, molasse, sugarcane and other agricultural origins provides the base for many sprit drinks. In addition, bioethanol is used as natural product to extract and concentrate flavors and odors which are used in food & drink industry.

Besides, food & beverages bioethanol is widely used in transportation industry. Thus, rise in transportation industry would lead to high demand of automotive vehicles thereby propelling the green chemicals market. Alongside, increasing food & beverages industry which extensively uses green chemicals would further drive green chemicals market.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Arkema S.A., BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, GF Biochemicals Ltd., Koninklijke DSM N.V., Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Toray Industries Inc., BioAmber Inc, Total Corbion PLA, and Vertec BioSolvents Inc. Several M&A’s along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to boost their presence in different regions.
