Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC440


Green chemicals or bio-based chemicals are the chemicals which are renewable in nature and are produced from bio-based feedstock. They are less destructive to the environment than the petroleum-based creation of chemicals. Green chemicals are formed primarily using raw materials, which uses rarer natural resources, preserving the environmental balance. The main raw materials used in producing of green chemicals include starch, sugar, animal fat, vegetable oils and bio-ethanol.

Construction chemicals are the chemicals that are extra in exact formulations with the cement or concrete during construction to meet the aesthetic, functional or design requirements of any infrastructure. Green chemicals are the chemicals that do not hold the components that are destructive to human health or environment. Green chemicals are gradually preferred in construction industry at present due to their several benefits such as strength, color, increased durability, minimum use of water and cement, ability to withstand climatic changes, chemical resistance and protection from natural factors such as fire and heat among others. These are extensively used in construction of residential, commercial, industrial, and other infrastructure projects.

Market Dynamics

Increase in the infrastructure developments all over the globe due to urbanization is in full process. Large scale funds in public and private sectors are driving the demand for green chemicals and materials required in construction purpose. Governments are undertaking huge scale projects such as building of highways, road lines, and public infrastructure projects. Builders and contractors are significantly cutting down on construction time by making usage of new chemical technologies and construction assistances. This is leading to the decrease in construction expenditure and upgrading in the quality of work. Although, green chemical technologies are presently used in large scale infrastructure expansions such as highways and bridges, they are progressively accepted for use in residential applications. It is anticipated that concrete admixtures will be used in the building of smaller infrastructures too in nearby upcoming years.

Market Classification and Overview

One of the key trend is the recent developments in technology in the production of green chemicals and materials. Current advances in technology in the chemical industry have led to the manufacture of feedstock that is inexpensive and brings sustainable chemical products. On the basis of types, green chemicals and materials can be segmented into three major types which are concrete admixtures, adhesives and sealants and flame retardants.

On the basis of material type, the global green chemicals and materials market can be segmented into bio-polymers, bio-organic acids, bio-alcohols, and bio-ketones. These are sets of methods and technologies that transform formless and organized data into meaningful and useful data processes. By regions, the global market of green chemicals and materials is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA). Asia-Pacific was the largest market for green chemicals and materials globally and is expected to hold the same position in the future. Huge production of green chemicals and materials in India and China will continue to drive the market growth, however exports to Western countries will enhance to the regional market revenues. North America and Europe also hold a huge share globally in the market of green chemicals and materials.
