Published Date: February 8, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Lignin Market size is set to exceed USD 6 billion by 2022; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Rising demand from applications such as construction industry, animal feed, binding and adhesives products is anticipated to drive the lignin market growth. Shift in trends towards agricultural use of lignin along with government approval for manufacturing pesticides, insecticides, heavy metal sequestrate and emulsifier will boost lignin market demand. It is widely used in manufacturing products like vanillin, phenol, BTX and dispersants are likely to augment industry growth.
Lignin being organic in nature and available at reasonable price find extensive applications as bio additive in animal feed industry. Also, growth in global meat processing industry will further escalate lignin market size. Low purity lignin consumption was estimated at 10.5 million tons in 2015 and is expected to surpass over 15 million tons in 2022. Growth in demand for cheap burning fuel coupled with stringent regulations to promote renewable energy consumption should positively impact consumption.
Global lignosulphonates market is expected to grow at over 5% CAGR by 2022. Growth in construction industry especially in the developing nations like India and China will fuel the lignin market demand.
Lignosulphonates, a derivate of lignin is a byproduct of pulp and paper industry. It is widely utilized in construction material manufacturing like cement, plasterboard and concrete. This can be attributed to its property to improve the working life and quality of products used in infrastructure.
Carbon fiber, one of the downstream potential of lignin market finds wide range of applications in automobile industry. It is relatively costly as compared to other composites which acts as a growth restraint. R&D is being carried to find economical ways of carbon fiber synthesis from lignin.
