2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) refers to an organic chemical compound produced from the two classes of carboxylic acids, bound to a central furan channel. It is a stable compound with physical properties, such as high melting points and insolubility in most common solvents. A white powdery solid under acidic conditions, FDCA is soluble in water under alkaline conditions. It is used as a terephthalate substitute in producing polyesters and various other petrochemicals to produce plastics, such as PET. It is also used as an intermediate for producing polyethylene furanoate (PEF) polymers.
The global market is majorly driven by the increasing usage of petrochemicals in numerous applications. In line with this, the augmenting demand for bio-based PET is significantly contributing to the market. Furthermore, the rising utilization of FDCA as an alternative for bio-based adipic acid is positively influencing the market. Apart from this, stringent regulations related to the usage of phthalate-based plasticizers are creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread demand for packaging materials is further catalyzing the market growth. Besides this, the escalating demand for the compound from the beverages industry to produce carbonated soft drinks is propelling the market across the globe. Additionally, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted for leveraging the bio-based properties of FDCA are offering lucrative growth opportunities to key market players on the global level. Other factors, including the growing consumer awareness regarding green products, rapid industrialization, and the rising demand for sustainable packaging, are also providing a boost to the market worldwide.
