An expeditious increase in air travel is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global car rental market, points out a TMR analyst. In the last decade, surging air travel for both business and leisure has led to an increasing demand for reliable and high-quality car rental services for comfort and safety reasons. Thus, top players in the car rental market are striving to leverage this trend by offering services across all major airports worldwide.

At present, Asia Pacific is witnessing a high growth in the tourism industry. Post the global economic slump of 2007-2008, global car rental companies are expanding their operations in China and India to serve both international and domestic tourists.

The increasing number of Internet users that carry out online travel bookings is also boosting the growth of the car rental market. This is because the process is reliable, easy and can be customized as per the need. Online booking is convenient for both customers and car rental providers as it saves times and is cost-effective as well.

Concerned About Environmental Degradation Hamper Market Growth

Strict regulations for curbing emissions and volatility in crude oil prices are hampering the growth of the global car rental market. The high utilization of non-renewable energy sources for power generation releases large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. To counter this, environmental regulations are in place in several countries for lowering emissions from vehicles and industries. In this regard, the International Energy Agency have laid out mandates for generating green energy in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and control environmental pollution. Consequently, top companies such as Enterprise Rent-A-Car are adopting green car rentals.

The global car rental market is expected to reach a valuation of US$79.46 bn by 2019. On the basis of car type, executive cars and multi-utility vehicles are anticipated to display a faster growth rate than other segments due to rapid globalization. The airport transport segment by category is expected to be valued at US$34.48 bn by 2019. The dominance of this segment is mainly due to the increasing number of air travelers for both business and leisure reasons.

Global Bio Vanillin Market: Trends and Opportunities Global scenario 2024; Increasing Requirement for Convenience among Consumers.

Global Bio Vanillin Market: Overview
Vanillin is the primary component of the vanilla bean extract and is used as a flavoring agent in pharmaceuticals, foods, and beverages. Synthetic vanillin is used more often than natural vanilla extract and bio vanillin has been developed as a healthier and safer alternative to synthetic vanillin.
Vanillin can be of three different types, depending on the way it is manufactured: guaiacol-derived vanillin, natural vanilla extract from vanilla beans, and lignin-based vanillin. Vanillin produced from lignin is marketed as a premium product and is therefore priced higher. Even though only a fraction of the total lignin obtained is used for the manufacturing of vanillin, lignin is actually an abundant natural resource and can also be obtained from sources such as wood, leaves, straw, cereals, stems, fruits, and vegetables. Guaiacol-derived vanillin is an established commercial market owing to the lower price of the product despite no product differentiation. This makes it difficult for bio vanillin to compete with existing companies that already have a strong marketing structure in place.
The report studies the various segments and subsegments within the bio vanillin market and carefully examines the various micro and macro factors that drive and hamper their growth. With the help of tools such as the Porter’s Five Forces Analysis and SWOT analysis, the report provides readers with a 360-degree outlook on the overall market and where it is headed in the coming years.
Global Bio Vanillin Market: Key Trends and Opportunities
The global market for bio vanillin is primarily driven by the surge in the demand for biotechnologically derived fragrances and flavors from end-use industries such as cosmetics, food and beverages, and pharmaceuticals. The market is also boosted by the stable price trends of bio vanillin and strong industry penetration. The fact that bio vanillin has been accepted as natural by the EU and the U.S. food legislations is key to the growth of the global bio vanillin market. The product also satisfies the various regulatory requirements of Health Canada-a department of the Government of Canada that deals with national public health. The market for bio vanillin is projected to benefit from the product being marketed as part of the premium product segment within the beverages, foods, and perfumes industries.
The food and beverages industry makes for the largest consumer of bio vanillin, accounting for over half the market. The fragrances sector is also likely to exhibit steady growth in the coming years, based on the findings of the report.
Global Bio Vanillin Market: Region-wise Outlook

Asia Pacific is the leading market for bio vanillin in terms of demand, with China emerging as the dominant country in terms of production. This region is also projected to exhibit strong growth during the rest of the forecast period mainly due to the increasing demand for bio vanillin from the pharmaceuticals and food and beverages industries in countries such as India, Indonesia, China, and Malaysia. Bio vanillin also provides a massive opportunity for growth in the Asia Pacific region since countries such as India and China have been witnessing a growth in per capita disposable income and population expansion.

Europe is also a major market for bio vanillin and is expected to witness moderate growth in the coming years. Bio vanillin has the potential to emerge as a green product in Europe as well as North America because consumers in these regions have become more health conscious and averse to petrochemical-derived products. This increasing reliance on natural and bio-derived products is anticipated to boost the bio vanillin market in North America and Europe.
