About Bio-based Butanol

Bio-based butanol is used as a chemical or solvent in the synthesis of acrylate, acetate, glycol ether, direct solvents, plasticizers, and other chemicals. These chemicals are in turn widely used in applications such as paints, plastics, textiles, coatings, polymer composites, and ceramics. Currently, bio-based butanol is used as a prominent solvent for a wide range of applications, and it is gaining popularity for its use as a biofuel, which is predicted to become an alternative to ethanol in future.

Bio-based butanol is used as a solvent for many purposes such as chemical and textile processes and is used as a thinner in coating industries and places where slow evaporating solvents are required. The advantage is that it prevents deterioration of coating in humid conditions. It is one of the most preferred solvents used in lacquers and baking finishes from urea. Even when the product is used in a small quantity, it increases the flow and brush-ability of alkyd resin paints. In the coming years, the growth of the global chemicals and coatings market will drive the growth of the global bio-based butanol market because of bio-based butanol's wide use as a preferable solvent in the chemicals and coatings industry.

The analysts forecast the global bio-based butanol market to grow at a CAGR of 9.27% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Bio-based Butanol Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global bio-based butanol market: Butalco, Butamax Advanced Biofuels, Cobalt Technologies, Eastman Chemical Company, GEVO, and Green Biologics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cathay Industrial Biotech, Green Biologics, Metabolic Explorer, Safeguard Biosystems, Syntec Biofuel, and Zeochem.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing number of strategic alliances. Recently, GrandBio and Rhodia have collaborated to manufacture bio-based butanol from sugarcane straw, bagasse, which is available in Brazil. They plan to make the first biomass-based plant in Brazil, which will produce solvents.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High usage of bio-based butanol for manufacturing consumer products. Bio-based butanol is used either as a feedstock or a solvent in synthesizing resins and specialty chemicals, which are used in the manufacture of various consumer products. The chemical formation of butanol makes it very different from that of ethanol due to the presence of two extra carbons. It is valued more as a chemical than as a fuel. Butanol is an essential chemical used in the preparation of various intermediates and products in the chemical industry. Advancements in technology, which are leading to increasing R&D in the production of specialty chemicals, are driving the demand for the consumption of bio-based butanol.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Increasing price of feedstock. Raw material is a major component that is required for the production of biofuel. With an increasing demand for feedstocks, there is a regulation that is being implemented in countries like the US, where the production of biofuel has been started by using switchgrass. Annual crops that are perennial in nature are funded since they are long-term investments. It is less feasible for energy crops to be insured; moreover, the change in the cropping style is driven by factors such as technology and labor. However, the government of various countries is trying to come up with plans that will help in the production of crops, for food and fuel. The production cost of bio-based butanol increases due to the selection of crops, which plays a significant role. For example, 70% of the production cost in China comes from raw materials.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
