Under types of furfural, we have included products such as Furan-2-carbaldehyde, 5-Methylfurfural, 5-Chloro-2-furaldehyde and others (Hydroxymethylfurfural, N-O-furfural oxime ethers, 5-Chloro-2-furaldehyde and 5-Phenyl-2-furaldehyde). Other types of furfurals are outside the scope of the report. In terms of application segments, furfuryl alcohol, solvents, chemical intermediates, pharmaceutical agents and others (fragrance ingredients and flavoring intermediates) are considered. Other applications are outside the scope of the report.
In terms of end-use industries where furfural is actually consumed, the report looks only at furfural used in the chemicals (including metal foundries) sector, the pharmaceuticals industry, the food and beverage sector, foundries (except metal foundries) and others (cosmetics, household products and perfume industry). There are industries where furfural is produced as an intermediate, but these industries aren’t considered as end-use industries. Also outside the scope of the report is the non-commercial consumption of furfural by academic institutes and academic research facilities.
The current exchange rate has been used to estimate the market’s present value. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenues.
