Nascent Rise in Price of Furfural to Propel Demand

Furfural derivatives come from agricultural products such as oat, sawdust, wheat barn, cobs, and corn. Due to an increase in the price of agricultural products, the price of furfural derivatives has also increased in recent times. This has restrained the growth of the global furfural derivates market and may even affect the performance of the market players.
