High Purity Lignin Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 45 million by 2030, as per a new market research published by Global Market Insights Inc.
Growing consumption of meat will act as a key driver for the use of high purity lignin. The addition of lignocellulose in poultry diets can deliver potential benefits for bird health. In China, poultry meat consumption was recorded at over 20,000 tons in 2021 and will further increase given the evolution of consumer preferences. This changing dietary preference to fulfill protein requirements will lead to a rise in demand for animal feed, in turn increasing the consumption of high purity lignin.
Rising need for biofuel production of to drive kraft lignin industry trends
High purity lignin market from kraft lignin segment is expected to cross USD 22 million by 2030. This is credited to the increasing usage in the production of biofuels, cement additives, BTX, carbon fibers, phenolic resins, and other products. Emergence of more efficient methods of lignin degradation process will expand the use of the compound in biofuel applications. The need and awareness regarding biofuels is increasing due to benefits such as more positive economic impacts and improved fuel efficiency.
