The Global Bio-based Platform Chemicals Market has been estimated at USD XX.XX billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD XX.XX billion by 2020, at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period. Platform Chemicals commonly referred to as building block chemicals is one of the fastest growing segment in the bio-based chemicals market. Platform chemicals are basically composed of 2-6 carbons, which are used as an intermediate in the production of various chemicals. However, due to the scarcity of fossil-based products and the rising crude oil prices have shifted the platform chemicals to use renewable resources in its production process. Moreover, the technological advancements in the bio-based products made it possible in developing microbial strains in the production of chemicals.

Bio-based Platform Chemicals is segmented by product type such as Bio Glycerol Acid, Bio Glutamic Acid, Bio Itaconic Acid, Bio-1,4-Diacids, Bio-3-hydroxypropionic Acid, Bio Levulinic Acid, Bio Glucaric Acid, and others. Packaging is the major application in the Bio-based Platform Chemicals market, accounting for a share of XX.XX % in 2015.The automotive segment will be the fastest growing segment, growing at a CAGR of XX.XX% in 2015.

The market is driven by rising crude oil prices, demand from automobile industry, and stringent government regulations. However, this market faces certain drawbacks such as shortage of raw material and the huge competition form fossil-fuel products.

Europe is the leading consumer of bio-based platform chemicals in 2015 accounting for a share of XX%, followed by North America and APAC. APAC will be the fastest growing market posting a CAGR of XX.XX% in 2015 owing to the availability of cheaper raw materials in the region.

Furthermore, the shifting focus towards organic alternatives and shifting focus towards eco-friendly products and technological advancements will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the bio-based platform chemicals market. Some of the major companies dominating the market with its products, and continuous product developments are Alpha Chemika, Braskem, BASF, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Lucite International Group, Itaconix Corporation, and BioAmber.
