Market Overview:

The global organosol lignin market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for lignin from various applications such as animal feeds, concrete additives, dye stuffs, and others. In addition, the growing awareness about the benefits of using organosol lignin is also contributing to the growth of this market.

Global Organosol Lignin Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Organosol Lignin is a type of lignin that has been modified through the addition of organic molecules. This type of lignin can be used as a binder in various products, such as adhesives and sealants.

Ethanol/Water Pulping (Alcell Process):

Ethanol/Water Pulping (Alcell Process) is a method of producing bio-pulps with high yield and low energy consumption. The process involves the use of both ethanol and water as reactants in the presence of alcaline conditions to produce lignin.

Pulping With Acetic Acid (CIMV Process):

Pulping with acetic acid (CIMV process) is a novel technology for the extraction of lignin from wood chips and other organic waste. The CIMV process has been developed by researchers at North Carolina State University, U.S., in collaboration with scientists from South Korea's Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH).

The CIMV process involves three main steps: Collection, Isolation, and Maximization.

Application Insights:

Organosol lignin is used as an additive in the manufacturing of various products such as animal feed, concrete additives, and dye stuffs. The demand for organosol lignin from the animal feed industry was valued at USD 585.5 thousand in 2017 and is expected to ascend at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to its ability to promote weight gains in livestock animals and reduce their susceptibility towards diseases caused by pathogens such as Escherichia coli O157:H7 & Salmonella spp., which are commonly known as ¢â‚¬Å“pathogenic bacteria¢â‚¬.

The use of organosol lignin from wood processing industries has been declining over recent years due largely to increasing preference for synthetic or petroleum-based products that are cheaper compared with natural ones.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global organosol lignin market in terms of volume share in 2016. North America is a major producer and consumer of wood-based chemicals, which has resulted in high demand for organosol lignins over the past few years. The region is expected to witness growth owing to increasing consumption of bio-based feedstock for manufacturing various products such as paper, textiles, packaging material and others.

Asia Pacific was estimated as the second largest regional segment by revenue with a share of 23.4% in 2016 owing to growing product demand from China on account of rapid industrialization coupled with government support towards environmental protection activities has resulted into high growth potential for this industry over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the paper and pulp industry for organosol lignin as a substitute for traditional phenolic resin binders is expected to be a key growth driver for the market over the forecast period.
  • Rising demand from the construction industry for adhesives, sealants, and coatings is also anticipated to fuel market growth in the near future.
  • Growing use of organosol lignin in composites and insulation materials is another key factor that is expected to propel market expansion during the forecast period.
  • Stringent environmental regulations pertaining to VOC emissions are likely to create opportunities for organosol lignin manufacturers in North America and Europe over the next few years.
