The influx of stringent environmental regulations and sustainability initiatives are also playing a crucial role in accelerating the adoption of biobased degreasers. The rising prioritization of environmental responsibilities amongst consumers and businesses will further influence the market growth.


Biobased Degreaser Market Growth Drivers & Restraints

The growing government intervention through R&D funds to support advancement and commercialization of biobased degreasers may have favourable impact on the industry growth. However, the higher costs and the increasing focus of price-sensitive consumers and businesses on opting cheaper conventional alternatives may slow down the product adoption rate. The higher costs straining the profitability of manufacturers, potentially leading to reduced investments in marketing, R&D for hampered innovation and product improvement will also limit the industry expansion to some extent.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the supply chains affecting the production and distribution of biobased degreasers. Economic uncertainties led some industries to prioritize cost-cutting measures, further impacting their willingness to invest in more sustainable cleaning solutions. However, the increased focus on hygiene and disinfection measures surged the demand for cleaning products, including biobased degreasers. Industries such as healthcare, food processing, and manufacturing placed interest in eco-friendly degreasers to ensure worker safety and compliance with environmental regulations, adding to the market growth.

Biobased Degreaser Market Trends

The ongoing advancements in chemical engineering and biotechnology will enhance the market outlook. The increasing adoption of chemical engineering methods have made way for optimized extraction procedures, increasing yields and lowering costs. Additionally, the demand for genetically altering organisms to create specialized enzymes and bio-based solvents for degreasing applications will support the product development. Furthermore, the rising introduction of cutting-edge R&D technologies will positively influence the market expansion.  For instance, in January 2023, the Readycare group introduced Readycare Signature, its sustainable bio-based brand to offer cleaning products made using renewable or sustainable plant-based resources in Malaysia.
