Global Soybean Derivatives Market: Drivers and Restraints
The global market for soybean derivatives has witnessed growth at a significant pace, chiefly owing to its increased use in functional foods and nutritional supplements. Owing to soybean’s high viscosity index and a low level of toxicity, soybean residues are being increasingly used as to manufacture lubricants for the automotive industry. Moreover, soybean residues are also witnessing a significant rise in demand owing to their increased usage in the manufacture of bio-diesel.
In the next few years, the market is expected to benefit from demand for a variety of soybean derivatives in the production of products such as bio-based plastics, crayons, scented candles, paints, cleansing agents, and coatings. The intensifying scarcity of natural resources such as wood across the globe is also leading to the increased usage of soybean derivatives in the production of bio-composites.
However, the market’s potential growth prospects are expected to be hindered to a certain extent owing to the easy availability of substitutes such as bagasse and wood pulp, especially in industrial applications such as the production of biogas and bio-plastic. Nevertheless, increased attempts by companies to improve the efficiency of soybean derivatives is expected to alleviate the threat of substitutes to market’s growth.
