Tall Oil Prices December 2023

Product
Category Region Price
Tall Oil Agricultural Feedstock USA 985 USD/Ton
Tall Oil Agricultural Feedstock China 995 USD/Ton


The price of tall oil in the United States for Q4 2023 reached 985 USD/Ton in December. The price trajectory in the region showed increases in January and February, driven by increasing buying activity in sectors such as nutraceutical and healthcare. Additionally, disruptions at two crucial shipping chokepoints, namely the Suez Canal and the Panama Canal, resulted in increased costs for U.S. retailers, subsequently leading to higher prices for consumers.

China’s tall oil prices reached 995 USD/Ton. The prices experienced a decline in Q1 2024 due to weak consumer sentiments. Despite improved economic activity in China following an extended holiday period, concerns regarding inadequate domestic demand persisted throughout the month, overshadowing this positive momentum. Besides, the decline in oil prices played a crucial role in curbing business expenses within the market, including diminished transportation costs. These savings were passed on to consumers in the form of lower prices for tall oil.

Tall Oil Price Trend

Tall Oil Market Analysis

The global tall oil market size reached 2.23 Million Tonnes in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 3.34 Million Tonnes, at a projected CAGR of 4.60% during 2023-2032.

  • The increasing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly bioproducts represents a major growth inducing factor for tall oil market. Tall oil is derived from the by-products of wood pulp during paper manufacturing and is used as an sustainable alternative in various industries including biofuels, adhesives, and rubber. It is also used in producing green chemicals that reduce reliance on petroleum-based products. Hence, the expanding green chemicals market which reached US$ 12.0 Billion in 2023 and is anticipated by IMARC GROUP to reach US$ 25.5 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 8.5% during 2024-2032 is escalating the demand for tall oil.  Moreover, tall oil components like fatty acids and rosin are increasingly used in eco-friendly paints, coatings, and printing inks, reflecting a broader shift toward sustainability in chemical manufacturing.
  • The market is also propelled by the growing inclination toward renewable energy as tall oil is widely used as a feedstock for biodiesel. Tall oil is widely preferred for biofuel production due to its renewable nature and consistent supply, unlike other volatile agricultural commodities. Hence, the expansion of the biofuel industry, particularly in Europe and North America supported by favorable regulations, is a significant driver for the tall oil market. According to the UNITED STATES ENERGY INFORMATION ADMINISTRATION, the total production volume of biodiesel production in the United States was 1.5 Billion gallons and consumption was 1.7 Billion gallons by 2022. Besides, the United States had 17 operating renewable diesel production facilities in 12 states with a combined production capacity of about 3 billion gallons per year.
  • Government policies and regulations that promote the use of renewable resources are other crucial drivers for the tall oil industry. There has been implementation of incentives such as tax benefits, subsidies, and grants for using bio-based materials which has enhanced the economic feasibility of tall oil-based products. Moreover, regulations aimed at reducing carbon footprints and improving sustainability credentials in manufacturing processes have escalated the demand for tall oil over more polluting alternatives. For instance, in Canada, On April 1, 2024, as published in the FORBES mAGAZINE, the federal carbon tax increased from $65 per tonne to $80 per tonne, costing drivers an extra 3.3 cents per liter at the pump. The carbon tax is scheduled to increase another $15 each year until it reaches $170 a tonne in 2030. This carbon tax, which is applied to fossil fuel purchases, is intended to encourage Canadians to reduce their consumption of polluting fuels and switch to sustainable alternatives such as biodiesel which in turn will affect the demand for tall oil.

Product Description

Tall oil is a valuable by-product of the kraft process in wood pulp manufacturing, primarily obtained from coniferous trees. It is primarily obtained from the resinous byproduct called black liquor, which is a mixture of lignin, hemicellulose, and other organic compounds generated during the pulping of wood in the papermaking process. The tall oil content in black liquor varies depending on factors such as the type of wood used and the pulping process employed. After the pulping process, the black liquor undergoes a series of extraction and separation steps to recover the tall oil. Tall oil is a viscous, odorous liquid that contains resin acids, fatty acids, sterols, and other compounds. Besides, it has various applications after refining, such as coatings, sizing for paper, paint, varnish, linoleum, drying oils, emulsions, lubricants, and soaps.
