Market Research and Market Trends of Culinary Oils Market
- Key players in the market are expanding their polyurethane production capacities such as BASF and COIM so as to maintain supply for the growing demand for Culinary Oils and polyurethane material in general.
- 4, 4-methylenebis 2-chloroaniline, also known as MOCA, is one the widely used curatives in the processing of Culinary Oils. Due to actions taken by the REACH regulatory body in the EU, MOCA has been put under a strict ban due to its toxic nature and its link to cancer. This has led to the slow phase out of MOCA and innovative solutions for alternative curing agents.
- Another increasing trend that is seen in the market is the increase in production of polyurethane from bio-based raw material rather than crude oil based chemicals due to the volatility of crude oil price. This reduces the dependency from crude oil prices thus providing renewable and alternative sources for the production of polyurethane while at the same time reducing the impact on pollution as well.
