U.S. furfural market size, by process, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Furfural is broadly used as a solvent or intermediate in several end-use industries, including foundry, agriculture, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, refineries, chemicals, automotive, and construction. The growing construction sector is projected to supplement the product demand in several refractory materials including ceramics, bricks, and fiberglass composites over the forecast period. In addition, the rising demand for sustainable products due to the depletion of fossil fuel resources is estimated to drive the demand. 

At present, furfural production is characterized by outdated manufacturing technologies, high steam usage, and high acid consumption, which lead to considerably low product yield or output. As a result, many companies are focusing on the development of new processes to decrease the overall energy consumption and increase the product yield during the purification step. Manufacturers are inclined toward using a combination of the most effective biomass to chemical techniques occasioning a significant decline in operational costs.
