Introduction

Bio-plasticizers are compounds incorporated in a polymer matrix to increase its flexibility and enhance the chemical properties of the plastic product. Bio-based plasticizers posses higher biodegradability and lesser chemical effects are developed during the degradation process. They are widely used as additives in PVC resins, PVC cables, wire jacketing, vinyl flooring, and automobile parts etc. application of bio-plasticizers in wire products enables original equipment manufacturers and cable manufacturers lower carbon gas emission by up to 40%. Vegetable raw material such as soybean oil, castor oil, starch, and palm oil are used in the production of bio-plasticizer and the material is used as a substitute to petroleum-based plasticizers. Bio-plasticizer manufactured from soybean oil through a process called epoxidation often referred as Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO). ESBO is one of the most adopted additives in PVS gasket used specifically in food packaging.

Market Dynamics

The global bio-plasticizer market has been gaining traction from last few years, as there is need to shift towards sustainable ingredients. Wide applications of bio-plasticizers such as in PVC, wire jacketing, medical equipment, automobile parts, vinyl flooring, packaging materials, and consumer goods among others drives the growth of bio-plasticizer market. Rising health concerns among population and various stringent environmental regulations regarding carbon dioxide gas emission stimulates the demand for bio-plasticizers. Additionally, improved characteristics of bio-plasticizer such as flexibility, softness, workability, safe, non-phthalate, and increased bio-degradability supports the growth of the market.   The growing adoption of bio-based materials in various end-use industries is expected to propel the bio-plasticizer market growth.
