Among applications, the plasticizers segment is expected to lead the levulinic acid market during the forecast period
Based on application, the plasticizers segment accounted for a major share of the levulinic acid market in 2015. Plasticizers are organic esters that are used to provide more flexibility to plastics, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC is used in several applications due to its low cost, durability, and versatility. Levulinic acid-derived ketal esters can be a potential replacement of phthalate-based plasticizers, which make majority of the world's plasticizer market. With increasing demand for renewable, phthalate-free plasticizers, particularly used in children toys, as well as for products that are used by humans, the demand for levulinic acid is expected to grow during the forecast period.
