Growth Factors

Growth can be attributed to the developments of novel derivatives, such as THF by key manufacturers, resulting in the expansion of the application segment. In addition, favorable regulations concerning the inclusion of bio-based products in several end-use industries are penetrating the demand for organic chemicals across several industries, thus triggering the market growth.

Technological advancements in the manufacturing process of furfural are estimated to considerably surge the production yield from key raw materials, thus achieving economies of scale. Key manufacturers in the marketare using novel cost-effective processes to increase product yield along with more efficient utilization of key resources. 

Report Highlights

 Chinese batch was the dominant process segment and held a market share of over 90%. This process is majorly used in China, which is the largest manufacturer across the globe. Quaker batch process is one of the oldest manufacturing processes, while others are modified versions of the former processes. The major difference between the Quaker batch and Rosenlew continuous processes is that the former uses sulfuric acid as a catalyst, while the latter does not require a separate catalyst.

Corncobs raw material segment led the global market with a share of over 83% in 2020. It is estimated to retain its dominant position throughout the forecast years due to the extensive use of the raw material in the production of furfural. The yield from corncob is the maximum, thus, marking corncob the most desirable raw material for production. In addition, corncob, when used as a biomass feedstock, delivers promising opportunities for renewable energy creation.

In terms of revenue, refineries dominated the market with a share of 60.6% in 2020. This high share is attributable to its high consumption as a solvent in petroleum refining, specialist adhesives, and lubricants.

Furfural is extensively applied as insecticide, nematicide, and fungicide in the agrochemical industry. It is an active ingredient in various nematicides such as crop protectors or crop guards. The product is also used as a weed killer in horticulture. It is a contact nematicide, mechanically incorporated or moved into the soil during irrigation, and used in reasonably low concentrations. As an agrochemical, it is comparatively harmless and easy to apply.

Furfuryl alcohol emerged as the leading application segment in 2020 accounting for a share of over 95%, as it is predominantly used as a binder in the foundry industry. Furfuryl alcohol is primarily used for the synthesis of furan resin, which is a substantial chemical feedstock used in the production of adhesives, casting resins, thermoset polymer matrix composites, coatings, and cement. Furfuryl alcohol, which is considered as an organic chemical, is also used as a solvent in the petroleum & refining industry.

The Asia Pacific emerged as the dominant region with a market share of over 84% in 2020. This is attributable to the high production of furfural in the region, especially in China, and growth in several end-use industries including agriculture, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and refinery. Asia Pacific market is also projected to witness the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2030 on account of the rising product demand from the chemical and foundry industries.
