The future of the bio-based chemicals industry will depend on a variety of factors, but crucially, it must diversify away from first generation feedstock. As this happens, a primary consideration for any alternative feedstock will be its availability, as well as how this supply compares to potential demand.

"While there is considerable research available on individual chemicals feedstock, very little has been conducted on comparing each against one another," observes Performance Materials Industry Principal Brian Balmer.

In this briefing, Frost & Sullivan analysts will provide a rare direct comparison of the supply and demand scenario for some of the most important potential feedstock and their alternatives, which will benefit companies interested in either supplying or using feedstock for bio-based chemicals.
