Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Bio-Isobutene Market

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic severely impacted most industries worldwide. Since bio-isobutene is petroleum-based, the acutely hit oil & gas sector, with volatile crude oil prices, had a direct & simultaneous impact on the Global Bio-Isobutene Market. As a result, it introduced several growth challenges for the market like suspended or delayed research & development activities on bio-isobutene, hampered fuel transportation, etc., thereby causing massive financial losses to the leading players in the global market amidst the crisis.

Market Segmentation

Based on the Type:

  • Straw Derived Bio-Isobutene
  • Sugar Beet & Sugarcane Derived Bio-Isobutene
  • Wood derived Bio-Isobutene
  • Cereals Derived Bio-Isobutene
  • Tubers Derived Bio-Isobutene

Of them all, the demand for Straw Derived Bio-Isobutene is anticipated to demonstrate astronomical growth over the forecast years. It owes principally to the mounting focus of governments of different countries worldwide on addressing the alarming concerns over environmental depletion due to plastics & excessive use of fossil fuels. Hence, they are taking several initiatives for reducing excess wheat straws while generating growth opportunities for the leading market players to develop & upscale the production of bio-isobutene using these wheat straws.

On the other hand, Sugar Beet & Sugar Cane-derived Bio-Isobutene acquired a significant market share in recent years, mainly due to the increasing focus of governments on encouraging the production of sugar beet & sugar cane to derive sucrose for its further use in bio-isobutene production in order to reduce carbon emissions. Prominent companies like Global Bioenergies (GBE) are actively participating in increasing the production of sucrose due to escalating demand for fuel alternatives, especially from the aviation industry.

Based on End-Users:

  • Fuel
  • Lubricant Additives
  • Bio-Based Cosmetic Ingredients
  • Butyl Rubber
  • Organic Glass
  • Bio-Based Plastics

Here, Fuel is anticipated to dominate the Global Bio-Isobutene Market with the largest share during the forecast period. It owes principally to the rapidly increasing demand for residuals like sugar, wood, & wheat straws, among others, to produce biofuel as an alternative to fossil fuels. In addition, with the growing focus on reducing carbon footprints and attaining the net Green House Gas (GHG) levels, different countries & industries are increasingly adopting sustainable fuels.

The aviation sector is increasingly collaborating with various sustainable aviation fuel producers to curb carbon emissions, which, in turn, is augmenting the demand for biofuels & generating profitability in bio-isobutene production. For instance:

  • In 2018, Global Bioenergies (GBE) joined forces with SkyNRG to add its isobutene-based SAF into ASTM D7566 and enable its commercial use by airlines.

Regional Landscape

Geographically, the Global Bio-Isobutene Market expands across:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia-Pacific

Amongst all regions globally, Europe dominated the market with the largest share in recent years and would prevail the same trend during the forecast period. It owes principally to the mounting focus of governments in France, Germany, and the UK on curbing carbon emission levels & investing substantially in the production of different bio-based products, including bio-isobutene.

Additionally, favorable government policies for bio-isobutene production shall also generate lucrative opportunities for the leading players in the regional market through 2026. Besides, the abundant presence of wheat straws is instigating producers to optimize the conversion of residuals into bio-isobutene & make a positive influence on the regional market.

In Europe, France is likely to dominate the regional market in the coming years, owing to its massive cosmetic industry, i.e., propelling the demand for bio-isobutene as a replacement for petroleum-based ingredients. Additionally, the application of bio-isobutene for hairspray & deodorant shall also positively influence France's cosmetic industry and boost the regional market in the years to come.
