Organic materials are carbon based compounds that are combination of carbon with hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen. Some organic materials are found naturally and some are manufactured in laboratories through chemical reactions. Organic materials play a crucial role in the manufacturing and other end-use industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics & personal care products, crop protection, pesticides, agrochemicals and others.
Organic materials include acetic acid, methanol, ethylene, benzene, acetone, monomer, baron, polymer, propanol, naphthalene, toluene, citric acid, formaldehyde and others. Acetic acid is most commonly used for pickling of vegetables and other foods in the form of vinegar. Acetic acid is the main component utilised to manufacture vinyl acetate monomer which is used to produce high demand products such as polyvinyl acetates and vinyl alcohols. It is also used in the production of cellulose acetate for photographic film.
Methanol is widely used in vehicles and aircrafts as a blend with gasoline and is used in the internal combustion, without affecting the efficiency of the fuel. In addition, methanol is used to produce formaldehyde which is utilised in manufacturing of household products and building materials. Methanol- to-olefins (MTO) and methanol-to-propylene (MTP) are the fastest growing derivatives of methanol and are expected to become the largest form of derivatives in the overall methanol derivatives market.
Boron is another type of organic chemical which is used as a raw material in day to day products such as car body panels, LCD screens, insulation grade materials and others. Fiberglass is the largest application of boron owing to its increasing demand from construction industry.
The global organic materials market is driven by several factors such as growing demand for electronic products, increased automotive production, rapid industrialization and rising construction activities. However, the industry faces challenges such as harmful health and environmental effects and release of hazardous chemicals during the production of organic chemical production along with the strict government regulations.
