Market Insight, Drivers, Restraints, Opportunity & Trends of the Market:


Furfural is an organic, renewable, nonpetroleum-based, colorless liquid chemical compound with the formula C4H3OCHO and is famous for its thermosetting properties, corrosion resistance and physical resistance. It has an aldehyde group attached to the furan and it is usually derived from lignocellulosic biomasses or non-food and non-oil or non-coal based things. Agricultural by-products and agricultural residues like sugarcane bagasse, corn cobs, rice husk, cotton husk, almond husk, oat husk etc. are widely used as source for furfural production. Though furfural is colorless when it is made, the sold product has a brown tinge to it as it gets darkened once exposed to air. These products are usually used as pesticides or insecticides in agriculture, solvent to refine lubricating oils, fuels and polymers in the production of synthetic rubbers.

Market Drivers

The expanding agricultural and fuel refining sectors are the main drivers behind the rapid growth of furfural market. The use of furfural as pesticides, fungicides and specially nematicides is contributing a lot to the rising growth of the said market. Its increasing use in various sectors such as painting and coating, automotive, industrial and pharmaceutical sectors are also playing a big role to drive this growth rate upward.

Beside this, growing population, rising demand for more foods and purified petroleum and fuels and rising per capita income are also some of the key players behind the rapid growth of the Furfural Market.

Aside from these, different government subsidies to the farmers is increasing the production of sugarcane and other crops and thus increasing the production of agricultural residues and increase in foreign investments in the said sector are also adding fuel to this increasing market growth.

The regular introduction of different and brand-new types of end product from furfurals with better qualities and more beneficial properties and in different price range to satisfy the varying tastes and consumption abilities of the customers is also attracting new consumers and thus helping the growth rate of Furfural Market to rise high.

Market Restraints

The Furfural Market has a huge potential. Though it is expanding very fast day by day, many things are preventing it from using its full potential. Some of these restraints are–

? Unpredictable production and fluctuating prices of raw materials.

? High import cost and high tariff as raw materials are not produced everywhere.

? High cost of R&D activities.

? High cost of the premium quality end products.

? Overconsumption causes respiratory, liver and nervous system problems and inflammation for the high presence of toxicity in furfurals.

? Emission of harmful chemicals and pollutants during production process.

? Availability of better and less toxic substitutes.

? Unavailability of these products in many regions.

? Inability of Furfural to penetrate the markets in the developed countries.


The Furfural Market growth is mainly based on the consumption of these products in various sectors as intermediate or raw materials. Due to the increase in spandex segments of textile industries, the furfural products as a raw material in rubber industries has a very high demand.


During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest share of Furfural Market. The demand for these products in the Asia Pacific region specially in China, India, Japan, Thailand etc. is driven by its growing need in the expanding agricultural, oil refining, pharmaceutical and textile sectors of these countries. Rising population, high per capita income and rapid urbanization are also driving this market growth. It is also believed that on the basis of source, the corncob segment will have the largest share for its high hemicellulose content, demand and efficiency and convenience. Though the Quaker Batch Process is the oldest, it is expected that by production process Chinese Batch Process will see a very high growth rate in future for its low cost and better technology but for large scale production, Rosenlew Continuous Process is preferred for its simplicity and usage of large quantity of steam.
