The global bio-based chemicals have advanced today with dozens of chemicals being produced from an array of bio-feedstocks, at cost competitive to petroleum. Companies who have proven their processes are now scaling up to commercial production capacities. As these companies ramp up output, their bio-based chemical "intermediates" are now offering a wide variety of new opportunities for downstream producers.

Despite being a price-sensitive region, the Asia Pacific remains an attractive hub for bio-based production with indigenous biomass feedstock and access to markets. Production capacity for bio-based materials and chemicals in ASEAN, in particular Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, has almost doubled from 2006 to 2013 and similar growth has been observed in Japan, Korea and rest of Asia, where production capacity is also expected to be doubled from 2011.

The bioplastics industry is set for a growth phase with increasing regulatory control against conventional plastic use and as price parity narrows. New capacities are coming onstream, with projections by Lucintel that bioplastics demand will reach $7.02 billion by 2018. New production capacity in Asia alone will be larger than the rest of the world’s cumulated production. Inventive feedstock sources are explored to secure sustainable feedstock supply support this growth. The formation of the Bioplastics Feedstock Alliance (BFA) is a testament to the commitment by leading consumer goods firms and brand owners in their support of sustainable bioplastics.
