About this market
The increasing focus on the sustainable use of natural resources, the demand for bio-based or renewable chemicals is rising at a rapid rate. As bio-succinic acid is derived from natural resources, it is used as a replacement for building blocks such as adipic acid and phthalic anhydride, which are used to manufacture compounds such as polyols. The chemical composition of bio-succinic acid is almost similar to adipic acid and exhibits comparable significant characteristics, thereby enabling integration with existing formulations and production process of polyester polyols. The use of bio-succinic acid in the production of polyester polyols increases the renewable content in polyols up to 100%, thereby reducing the environmental impact. Consequently, it reduces the dependency on petroleum raw materials and contributes to sustainability. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the bio-succinic acid market will register a CAGR of over 35% by 2023.

Market Overview
Increasing use of bio- succinic acid in 1,4- butanediol (BDO) production
The increasing use of bio-succinic acid in BDO production. BDO accounts for the largest application segment of the global bio-succinic acid market. With the fluctuating prices of conventional fossil fuel-based raw materials and the increasing focus on technologies that reduce carbon footprint, BDO producers are using renewable bio-based raw materials such as bio-succinic acid for BDO production.
High price of bio-succinic acid
The high price of bio-succinic acid poses a serious challenge to the growth of the market under focus. Although the raw materials used to produce bio-succinic acid are renewable, the high processing cost of succinic acid and lengthy extraction process pose serious challenges to bio-succinic acid producers. The availability of raw feedstocks at competitive prices directly contributes to the total production cost.
