The extensive consumption of fossil fuels result in increasing carbon dioxide emissions. As a result of this, there is need to harness the potential of bio-based products. Therefore, the use of bio-based chemicals is expected to grow during the forecast period. The chemicals derived from soybean are a reliable alternative to traditional petroleum and crude derived chemicals and ensure sustainability and reduced carbon footprints. Traditionally, soy chemicals have been used in a variety of applications across a diverse set of industries. The most common soybean derivatives are soy-milk and soy-oil. Soy-milk and soybeans are widely used in food industries owing to their high nutrient content. Soy-oil is used as a vegetable oil as well as to derive the chemicals such as polyols, isoflavones and waxes among the others. The chemicals derived from soy-oil have wide applications such as in production of biodiesel, bio-degradable plastics, soaps etc. These Soy-based chemicals find application across diverse industries including cosmetics, paper, food & beverages, plastic &polymer etc.
