Lignin products are derived from complex, non-toxic and biodegradable polymers, which are found naturally in the cell walls of dry-land plants. They exhibit excellent binding properties as they contain lignosulfonate that reduces sugar and sugar sulfonate. At present, they are utilized in wallboard, leather and water treatment, lead-acid batteries, oil recovery, industrial cleaners, and oil well drilling muds. They also find usage as adhesives, resins, binders, dispersants, emulsifiers, wetting agents, agglomerates, and chelating agents in various end use industries across the globe.
Lignins can replace fossil-based raw materials in a wide range of products, such as plastics and chemicals. This, in confluence with a shift in consumer preferences towards the alternative sources of energy and chemicals due to the increasing prices and exhaustion of fossil fuel sources, represents one of the key factors bolstering the growth of the market. In addition to this, governing agencies of numerous countries are encouraging the adoption of energy-efficient measures in the pulp and paper industry to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This, in turn, is catalyzing the demand for refined lignin products to replace fossil-based phenols in resins for plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), laminated veneer lumber (LVL), paper lamination, and insulation material. Apart from this, lignin products are employed in the agriculture sector for making pesticides, fertilizer bricks, and animal feed pellets and additives. Furthermore, they find extensive usage in the healthcare industry as pharmaceutical excipients for tablet manufacturing. Besides this, the growing popularity of lignin-based carbon fibers as reinforcement composites in the aerospace industry is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities to market players operating around the world.
