Report Highlights

The global market for bioproducts should reach $714.6 billion by 2021 from $466.6 billion in 2016 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9%, from 2016 to 2021.

Report Includes

  • A complete techno-economic and environmental analysis of industrial biorefinery products
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015, estimates for 2016, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2021
  • Breakdowns of product demand by division, including energetic (ethanol, biodiesel, electricity/heat), nonenergetic (chemicals, materials, herbal/botanicals); and by segment, including fuel (transport, mechanical, etc.), energy (heat, electricity), material (plastics, resins), chemical (alcohols, solvents, acids, surfactants, etc.), and herbal/botanical (drugs, body care, aroma, etc.)
  • Forecasts for biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, and chemicals from biomass
  • Evaluations of the prospects for biorefineries built on different "platforms," such as the "sugar platform," based on fermentation of sugars extracted from biomass feedstocks, versus the "syngas platform," based on thermochemical conversion processes
  • Detailed patent analysis and a research-and-development update
  • Profiles of major players in the industry

Report Scope

This research report quantifies the two categories of energetic and non-energetic bioproducts into seven major product segments: bio-derived chemicals, biofuels, pharmaceuticals (biodrugs and herbal/botanicals), biocomposite materials, biopolymers/bioplastics, biogas and biopower.

The report is divided in 14 chapters. Chapter Two contains the demand by category with forecast to 2021.

Chapter Three presents an overview that defines and quantifies biorefinery products and assesses market trends and categories/segments with a forecast to 2021.
