While chemicals were first derived from petroleum feedstock in 1872, the possibility of extracting chemicals from biomass was not explored until the last decade of the 19th century. Carbon black was the first non-renewable chemical made from petroleum; and Union Carbide, the wholly owned subsidiary, of Dow Chemical Company was one of the pioneers in this industry. Ethanol was first used as transportation fuel in 1908, when Henry Ford designed the Model T car to operate on a mixture of alcohol and gasoline.

Government support, development of new technologies and widely available feedstock are major drivers for the renewable chemicals market while the high set-up cost is a major drawback. New markets such as India and China provide new opportunities for renewable chemicals.
