The content of this report will be updated with the latest scenarios based on the global COVID-19 Pandemic
The global bio-isobutene market growth is mainly attributed to the increased demand for bio-based and green products in multiple application areas such as transportation (aerospace and defense, and automotive), rubber, plastic, personal care and cosmetics, lubricant, and solvent industries. Specialty fuel and polymer grade bio-isobutene have promising and emerging markets with high margins, predominantly in Europe and North America.
The global bio-isobutene market was at a pre-commercial stage in 2019 and accounted for $4.1 million. The market is expected to garner significant revenue of around $1.0 billion by 2025, growing at a whopping CAGR of 150.30% during the forecast period, 2020-2025. Bio-isobutene is expected to bring reliability as well as environmental and socio-economic sustainability in the global chemical value chain. The increased consumption of bio-based fuels, primarily in the transportation industry (aerospace and defense), is predicted to propel the market. However, the exorbitant prices of all grades of isobutene are expected to hinder the market in the short run.
COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the market and caused unprecedented devastation to various sectors, including the manufacturing industry in recent times. The crisis is expected to have intense socio-economic consequences across the globe. As a result, most of the countries are moving toward a new climate and nature-friendly economy model, i.e., circular bioeconomy. This, in turn, is expected to positively impact the global bio-isobutene market.
Currently, the applications of bio-isobutene are majorly limited to fuel and cosmetic and personal care ingredients. However, with the commercialization of the product by 2022, the capabilities of bio-isobutene are expected to gain momentum. Despite the bio-isobutene market currently being highly consolidated, potential new players are expected to enter the value chain by 2025.
Business expansions, partnerships, and collaborations are some of the business strategies executed in the bio-isobutene market. Several companies, including Gevo, Inc., Global Bioenergies, Butagaz, BASF SE, ExxonMobil, LanzaTech Inc., Songwon Industrial, Butamax Advanced Biofuels, LLC, Clariant, Lanxess AG, L’Or?al, Eastman Chemical Company, INEOS, Sinopec Corp, and Dow are anticipated to emerge as significant players in the global bio-isobutene value chain.
