Reason being the increased consumption of essential commodities such as detergent, personal care products, and disinfectants due to the coronavirus spread. The adoption of personal care products increased due to the well-spread awareness for personal hygiene during the pandemic is estimated to deliver high premiums for manufacturers. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global bio-based propylene glycol market is projected to witness significant during the forecast period (2022 – 2030).

 Rising usages of bio-based propylene glycol as chemical intermediates, unsaturated polyester resin, and solvent in the production of detergent household cleaners, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals resultantly accelerates the growth of the market. Bio-based propylene glycol meets the standards of Certified Biobased Product Label dictated by the US Pharmacopeia (USP) and the US Department of Agriculture. Hence, it is utilized as an inactive ingredient in the production of medicines.

Also, it is an essential raw material for the production of antifreeze and coolant used in numerous end-use industries, including automotive and construction. Increasing production and sales of automotive products support the growth of the bio-based propylene glycol market. Besides, the augmenting demand for bio-based polyester fiber and PET products is a major tailwind pushing the growth of the market. Moreover, the ample production of glycerine obtained as a by-product of biodiesel substantiates the market growth, prompting manufacturers to focus on bio-based propylene production.

Additional factors supporting the market include the rising demand for the product from industries such as packaging, automotive, and textiles led by improving economic conditions, worldwide. The rising demand for non-ionic surfactant and propylene glycol-based adhesives, emulsifiers, and a lubricant is predicted to boost the market growth.

Industry/Innovation/Related News:

February 11, 2022 --- UPM Biofuels (Finland), a leading global petrochemical products producer, announced investments in a new biorefinery to produce wood-based biochemicals. The new biorefinery will produce a range of 100% wood-based biochemicals, bio-mono propylene glycol (bioMPG), and industrial sugars, which enable a switch from fossil raw materials to sustainable alternatives in various consumer-driven end-uses. 

Currently, the supply of biochemicals is minimal, which leads to high-priced sustainable alternatives. Once operational, the new plant would enable the sustainable supply of biochemicals with large growth potential. The move is another major milestone in UPM’s transformation that showcases it’s focused efficient RD efforts. Scheduled to function by the end of 2022, the new facility will have a total capacity of 220,000 bio-based chemicals.
