The global ethyl levulinate market is expected to reach USD 11.8 million by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The global industry is in its nascent stage and is characterized by few industry participants. Presence of very few manufacturers gives a competitive edge over new entrants. Industry participants as well as governments have been extensively investing in R&D to develop novel applications as well as cheaper raw materials. Potential applications such as bio-diesel additive are expected to positively impact the market.
Prolonged exposure to ethyl levulinate may cause dizziness, eye irritation, lung damage, coma and behavioral changes. Such toxic effects are presumed to expose ethyl levulinate industry to several regulations, thus constricting market growth and development. Several R&D initiatives are being taken by government to come up with cheaper raw material for ethyl levulinate production. This is projected to create ample opportunities for this industry over the forecast period.
