Special Asia Biobased Report

Biobased products are on the rise throughout Asia

There’s only one complete region for biobased where abundant feedstock, lack of oil & gas production, rising energy demand and supportive government policy come together – and that is Asia.

Biobased – from fuels to nutraceuticals, Asia has it all going – and in many cases, well out of first gear and the foot firmly on the accelerator. What’s driving it? Well, for sure the long-standing nexus for chemical companies in Asia, the dramatic growth of markets, and the relative scarcity of oil & gas for many countries.

But without a doubt, biobased products are on the rise throughout Asia. Here’s our special report as of the end of 2012.

Macro-Trends

1. Faster energy demand growth than any other region.

2. Less likely to have large fossil energy discoveries – those that are, will be focused on a handful of countries, not well-aligned with industrial growth.

3. Less affected than other regions by large discoveries of natural gas in North America, unless a pipeline is constructed.

4. Increasingly focused on triple bottom line including social, economic and environmental measures.
