Furfural Market Overview:

Global Furfural Market is estimated to reach $1,739 million by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 11% from 2016 to 2024. Furfural is an organic compound derived from a variety of agricultural byproducts such as oat, corncobs, rice husk, wheat bran, and saw dust. Furfural is a colorless oil that quickly dissolves in various organic solvents and is slightly soluble in water. Its unique property is that it dissolve aromatics and other unsaturated olefins, which makes it suitable for refining lubricating oils. It is mainly used to produce adhesives, foundry resins, and wetting agents due to its low viscosity & high reactivity, and excellent mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties.

Increasing demand for green chemical, growing environmental awareness to renewable substitutes in order to replace fossil resources, and increasing production in underdeveloped countries are the major factors to drive the growth of global furfural market.
