We are seeing a fundamental shift in the global bio-based chemicals market, as brands take action to steer their supply chains away from a traditional petro-chemical base, and those who have already made the change enjoy the benefits both in public perception and commercial performance.
This ‘pull demand’, in addition to favourable government regulation supporting the market, makes it an incredibly exciting time for the industry as it begins to achieve its true potential. Properties of bio-based materials are increasing in performance and beginning to outstrip those of petro-chemical alternatives, and in addition, more efficient manufacturing processes are starting to bring the costs down.
However, for the bio-based economy to achieve the success that we all believe it can, a new cohesive approach is required to unite the industry and make it more efficient and commercially focused. Chemical producers, technical experts and consumer facing brands need to stop working in silos, and instead pursue regular communication and engagement as they work towards the same goals.
We at Bio-Based World News are proud to showcase the entire industry value chain on the pages of our news website and quarterly magazine. And once a year our global community comes together in one place – at World Bio Markets.
Since acquiring the event in 2017 and merging it with our existing event, Bio-Based Live, we have been dissecting the industry and the platform to enable us to create something which truly serves and connects each player in the life cycle of bio-based & sustainable products.
Our rebooted agenda features thought provoking keynotes from both inside and outside the industry, lively onstage discussions between C-level executives, interactive roundtables, results orientated workshops as well as carefully crafted sessions; with case studies on some of the most innovative and successful verticals, extensive detail on technical processes and the path to commercialisation, and a comprehensive analysis of what the consumer is looking for and how bio-based can provide answers.
Our re-energised exhibition will feature Bio-Stars – showcasing the most exciting start-ups in our industry, Brand Land – displaying the products of our attending brands and offering the opportunity for a more personal conversation with the people behind them, as well as enough meeting rooms to accommodate well over 500 of your crucial meetings, and of course exhibits from the leading bio-based companies from all over the world.
If that isn’t enough, World Bio Markets will also host the next edition of the Bio-Based World News Awards, a site visit organised by Port of Amsterdam, 10 hours of networking and two drinks receptions!
We focus solely on this one industry and strive to serve it as best as possible. If you have any suggestions or feedback or want to get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with one of the team. You can find us below.
