The global bio based poly THF1000 market stands at USD XX billion and by 2020 it is expected to increase to USD XX billion.

The development of bio based poly (tetrahydrofuran) THF 1000 is an important milestone for the use of products derived from renewables. Petro based poly THF is a widely used product with multiple uses in various industries. This is extensively used in several industries like apparel, footwear, sports equipment, marine hoses, films and medical equipment manufacturing, artificial leather, coatings, etc.

The advantage of bio based poly THF is that in terms of both looks and quality it is similar to the petro based poly THF. So it is much easier for producers to replace petro based product with the bio based one. Since the bio based product is derived from renewable materials it reduces the emissions that otherwise would have been created by using a petro based product. The attributes of bio based poly THF include its stability over a range of temperatures, is highly resistant to microbes and can be stored in steel containers by following proper guidelines.

Bio based poly THF has a distinct advantage over petro based poly THF by being able to negate the health effects induced by the latter. There are many opportunities in terms of ensuring long-term market acceptance by using this innovative bio based technology.

Bio based poly THF has been termed as non-hazardous for its use by humans. Proper guidelines need to be followed to store bio based poly THF. Unless properly managed poly THF can turn into solid, which later can be brought back to its original state. Also, poly THF needs to be stored in closed containers blanketed by dry nitrogen. If not stored there are chances of loss. Currently the cost of bio based poly THF is more than petro based one and with low crude oil prices, the difference has also increased.

The global bio based poly (tetrahydrofuran) THF1000 market report studies the market based on by industry (artificial leather, leisure and sports, textile and garment, medical equipment, coatings and others), by application (dry and melt spun fibers, thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPU), thermoplastic polyetheresters, polyetheramide and cast polyurethane elastomers). The report offers insights on a segmentation based on geography: North America, Europe, Africa, South and Central America, Asia-Pacific, South and Central America.
