Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market Value & Growth Rate:

The Global Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market size is predicted to reach US$ 692.7 million by 2026, registering with a CAGR of 10.7% during 2021-2026. 

Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market Scenario:

Epoxidized soybean oil is a low-cost vegetable oil that is available in industrial quantities. The oxidation of soybean oil with either acetic or formic acid with hydrogen peroxide results in epoxidized soybean oil. Because of its biodegradability, ESO is recommended over phthalate plasticizers. Primarily, because of the increasing availability and development of innovative technologies for renewable resources, the market for Epoxidized soybean oil is expected to rise. Epoxy Soy Bean Oil is a colorless, viscous liquid that dissolves in organic solvents like benzene, cyclohexane, and acetone ethyl acetate. It is a plasticizer used in polyvinyl chloride polymers because it is heat and light-stable. It also extends the product's shelf life and has no odor. In addition, it works as a scavenger for hydrochloric acid that is released during the heat treatment of PVC. 

Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market Drivers:

The market for epoxidized soybean oil (ESBO) is growing due to the widespread use of organic stabilizers in the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) stabilization process.

After polyethylene and polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride is the third most widely used commodity plastic. It's commonly utilized in the building industry for sewage, drainage, and water pipelines, among other things. PVC's low heat stability, on the other hand, has limited its application in end-use industries. When PVC degrades at high temperatures, it releases hydrochloric acid (HCl), which promotes the breakdown of the material. PVC stabilization can be accomplished in various ways, the most common of which are organic and inorganic metal stabilizers. Metal soaps and lead salts are the most common inorganic stabilizers. On the other hand, inorganic stabilizers have been hampered by stringent lead regulations, associated environmental concerns, and high costs. As a result, to satisfy regulatory compliance, PVC companies worldwide are focused on using non-toxic and ecologically friendly stabilizers.

Because of its non-toxic and ecologically benign character, epoxidized soybean oil (ESBO) is an organic stabilizer gaining momentum in the PVC stabilization process. The desire for cleaner and safer lubricants has been fueled by strict rules in the vehicle sector to improve fuel economy. As a result, in the vehicle sector, mineral oil-based lubricant additives are widely employed. The hazardous nature of mineral oil-based lubricants, on the other hand, has imposed tight limits on their usage in various applications. Moreover, mineral oil-based lubricants have presented a hazard to the ecology and groundwater sources. As a result, chemical companies worldwide are focused on developing biocompatible lubricants to comply with government regulations which further propels the global epoxidized soybean oil market. Epoxidized soybean oil is a bio-based lubricant with low volatility, good lubricity, a high viscosity index, easy miscibility, and optimal solvency for lubricant additives. As a result, epoxidized soybean oil is projected to outperform mineral oil as a lubricant. The market for epoxidized soybean oil is expected to grow as a result of these characteristics. As a result, bio-based oils are becoming more popular as chemical feedstocks. In end-use industries like cosmetics & personal care, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and automotive & transportation, these are being employed as alternatives to petroleum-based chemicals and intermediates.

Furthermore, initiatives to reduce carbon footprints through rigorous government rules on hazardous gas emissions, the capital-intensive nature of petroleum-based chemicals, and changing crude oil prices are all driving up demand for bio-based oils as a chemical feedstock. As a result, these features further boosted the global epoxidized soybean oil market during the forecast period.

Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market Restraints:

The massive utilization of ESBO in the food and beverage industry is hazardous to one's health.ESBO is utilized in gaskets for commercial lids, laminate in drink cartons, and plastic coatings in the food and beverage business. Metal lid gaskets of glass jars used to store baby foods also contain ESBO. These gaskets come into touch with food products during sterilization and storage, potentially contaminating ESBO and resulting in harmful health effects.The highest acceptable migration level for ESBO in food, according to the Scientific Committee for Food (SCF), is 60 mg/kg. As a result, producers must ensure that ESBO ingestion volume remains substantially below the prescribed range, hampers the global epoxidized soybean oil market.

Recent Developments in the Global Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market

By Application:

  • UV cure applications

  • Plasticizers

  • Fuel additives

  • Others 

Plasticizers are the dominant application for Epoxidized Soybean Oil. Plasticizers are colorless, odorless compounds, primarily phthalate esters, increasing polymers' elasticity, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Plasticizers account for more than 90% of the plasticizers used in the manufacturing of PVC, often known as vinyl. Paints, rubber products, adhesives and sealants, printing inks, and other products contain plasticizers. PVC will be rigid without plasticizers and can only be utilized in limited applications such as wastewater pipelines. PVC's usage of plasticizers, on the other hand, expands its range of applications. Hexyl phthalate, dioctyl phthalate, and dibutyl phthalate are the most regularly used phthalates. However, due to its effects on skin and other health issues, tight limitations on the use of phthalates by authorities such as the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) have reduced its use in numerous applications. As a result, plasticizer manufacturers have chosen to use renewable and safer materials. ESBO is the most recommended bio-based plasticizer versus petrochemical-based plasticizer since it is environmentally beneficial. As a result, ESBO sees a lot of potential in the PVC stabilizing process.
