According to the report, one driver in the market is growth in biodiesel production. Biodiesel production is increasing worldwide and is expected to be worth more than $40 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of more than 3.5% during 2016-2021.

The US, Germany, Brazil, Indonesia, and Argentina are the largest producers of biodiesel. One of the main by-products of biodiesel production is glycerol, also known as glycerin.

It is estimated that for every 100 pounds of biodiesel produced, approximately 10 pounds of crude glycerol are also generated. Glycerin is one of the major feedstocks used for the production of bio-based propylene glycol along with soy and corn.Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is seasonality in availability and prices of bio-based propylene glycol.

The major feedstocks for bio-based propylene glycol are glycerin, corn, and soy. Corn and soy are agricultural products and their supply is very irregular during the year.

There are peak and dull seasons of production, and this will, in turn, affect the procurement and production costs and eventually the prices of bio-based propylene glycol. During the peak season, product costs will be low.

In turn, the prices of bio-based propylene glycol will also fall and its supply will increase. However, during the dull season, the prices of bio-based propylene glycol will be high and supply will reduce.
