August 09, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Lignin Products Market Report by Product (Organosolv Lignin, Kraft Lignin, Lignosulphonates, and Others), Source (Cellulosic Ethanol, Kraft Pulping, Sulphite Pulping), Application (Concrete Additive, Animal Feed, Vanillin, Dispersant, Resins, Activated Carbon, Carbon Fibers, Plastics/Polymers, Phenol and Derivatives, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global lignin products market reached a value of US$ 1,051 Million in 2023. Lignin is an organic substance that is present in plant cells to provide rigidity and shape while protecting them from the microbial fermentation of the cell wall. It is resistant to acid hydrolysis, soluble in hot alkaline and bisulfite, and readily condensed with thiols or phenols. It can be obtained from different sources, such as crops, trees, plants, and lignocellulosic parts, with the help of physical, biochemical or chemical treatments. Usually composed of petroleum-based substances and having different compositions and chemical structures with diverse properties, it is widely used in the production of numerous eco-friendly products, including agglomerates, binders and emulsifiers, and wetting and chelating agents.

Global Lignin Products Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing environmental concerns among the masses. In line with this, the growing initiatives undertaken by the governments of several countries to encourage the adoption of energy-efficient measures in order to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are providing an impetus to the uptake of lignin products. Along with this, the widespread utilization of lignin products as a preferred alternative to fossil-based materials in the manufacturing of chemicals and plastics is creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the augmenting demand for eco-friendly variants of fertilizers and pesticides across the agriculture sector is providing a boost to the demand for lignin products across the globe. Apart from this, the rising application in the production of macromolecules that are used in the development of biofuels, bitumen and bio-refinery catalysts is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Other factors, including rapid industrialization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,386.9 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.16% during 2024-2032.
