Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market Trends

  • Rising demand for PVC products is driving the market growth


The rising demand for PVC products is driving the Market CAGR for epoxidized soybean oil. PVC blends derive their flexibility, hardness, heat, and light resistance from a major component known as epoxidized soybean oil. Its use as a plasticizer and stabilizer for different PVC products such as pipes, cables, flooring materials, and packaging has been necessitated by increasing urbanization, infrastructure projects, and consumer demand. Moreover, more epoxidized soybean oils are used in PVCs because of strict regulations against conventional plasticizers and the need for eco-friendly substitutes. The world’s fast-growing market for ESO can be stabilized by the continuous increase in demand for these items globally, thus keeping them thriving all over the world.


Various industries have identified that there’s a shift in customer needs towards products made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials. This change has been driven by growing awareness of the environment, concerns about the future of our planet vis-à-vis its ability to support life, and other factors such as the realization of how industrial activities impact it. In particular, individuals are looking for items that are produced using methods that do not harm ecosystems while also having little negative effects towards them being gotten from renewable sources. In addition to this, governments around the world, through their regulatory bodies, have also pushed for the adoption of green materials in order to reduce carbon emissions, promote a circular economy, and minimize waste generation. Conservation enforcement agencies in all countries where they exist, including those at regional and local levels, are now implementing environmental protection laws more strictly than ever before across every industry.


Phthalates have the effect of disturbing hormones and being poisonous to health, which has made people ask for other plasticization substances that are safe. There are a lot of objects that use phthalates as plasticizers, but it is feared that they can be released into the environment where they get stored in the human body, hence causing possible future health problems. As a result, more and more manufacturers are now opting for alternative plasticizers such as Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESO), which comes from renewable sources and is known for its safety and environmental friendliness. Epoxides of soybean oil are not harmful, can break down naturally, and comply with regulations.


Take the World Health Organization (WHO) as an example: chemicals in food packaging are the cause of about 10% of global cases of foodborne disease. Many people in the food industry today prefer Epoxidized Soybean Oil (Epoxide Soybean oil) because it does not contain toxic substances and has been approved for use with food. Using it as a plasticizer in materials for packing preserves while at the same time minimizing chemical pollution hazards posed by them to humans ensures that public health care standards are maintained. Consequently, this has led to higher Epoxide Soybean oil demands in catering establishments dealing with meals and drinks, thereby increasing income levels and improving control measures, as well as conformity to safety requirements and regulations on edibles. Thus, driving the Epoxidized Soybean Oil Market revenue.
