Bio plasticizers are non-phthalate and sustainable alternatives to traditional phthalate plasticizers used in PVC products like wires, cables, flooring and medical devices. They are derived from renewable agricultural sources like vegetable oils, corn, and citric acid esters offering advantages over phthalates including biodegradability, low toxicity and compliance with strict regulations. With increasing regulations against phthalates due to concerns over health impacts, the demand for bio-based and non-toxic plasticizers is growing. The global bio plasticizers market provides a natural substitutes for petroleum-based plasticizers while retaining performance.
The global Bio Plasticizers Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.78 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the bio plasticizers market is the shift towards non-phthalate plasticizers. Strict regulations against phthalates have led plasticizers manufacturers to explore alternative solutions. Currently, citric acid esters dominate the non-phthalate bio plasticizers market owing to their properties like stability, compatibility with PVC and efficiency as a plasticizer at low dosage rates. With advantages like biodegradability and sustainability, citrates are widely replacing phthalates in applications like wires and cables, films and sheets, flooring among others. Further, development of innovative application-specific bio plasticizers derivatives from renewable resources like epoxidized soybean oil (ESBO) and various fatty acid esters will support the market growth over the forecast period.
