Lignin is one of the important classes of complex organic polymers. Lignin is primarily found in plant cell walls, especially in wood and bark. It is the second most abundant renewable carbon source on the earth. Lignin is the only one that is not composed of carbohydrate (sugar) monomers. Lignin helps to extract the liquid throughout the plant; therefore lignin is very essential in growth of the tree. It is insoluble in water and alcohol but soluble in weak alkaline solutions. It also captures atmospheric carbon and stores it in the tissues of woody vegetation. It also helps to increase the soil moisture retention. Lignin is used in various applications areas such as, building & construction, agrochemicals, paints & coatings, etc.

The functional properties of lignin such as dispersant, binders and emulsifying agents are major factors leading to high demand for lignin in various application markets. On the basis of product segment, lignin is subdivided into lignosulfonates, kraft lignin and others (including organosolve, etc). Lignosulfonates was dominated the global lignin market with large share in revenue generation. Demand of sulfur-free lignin is continuously increasing in the construction industry due to its high absorbency rate and zeta potential to cement particles. In cement manufacturing, lignosulfonates are used on a large amount, as it helps reducing the viscosity of slurry by decreasing the amount of water used in the production of cement. Huge demand from construction is expected to further boost the demand for lignin in years to come. Kraft lignin has different chemical properties than lignosulfonates. Therefore, it is used in the manufacture of dyes and insecticides. Kraft lignin was the second largest product segment which accounted for over 7% share of the total lignin market in 2014.

Lignin Market

Key application of lignin includes the use of this lignin in concrete additive, animal feed, dye stuff, and other applications like cosmetics, absorbents etc. Concrete additives accounted for more than 45.0% shares of the global lignin market in 2014. Growing livestock farming activities in developing as well as the developed economies, animal feed is expected to play major role in the growth of lignin market. Increasing demand for lignin from the paints and coatings industry for dye stuff is another factor contributing to strong demand for lignin globally. Growing market of cosmetics and absorbents are also expected to contribute to the growth of global lignin market during the forecast period.

Global lignin market was dominated by the North America region followed by Europe. The lignin market in Europe region is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the years to come. The Europe region is followed by the Asia Pacific respectively and Latin America respectively. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for lignin during the forecast period.

Global lignin market is highly competitive, with the presence of well-established global market participants. Domsjö Fabriker AB, Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd., Changzhou Shanfeng Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., MeadWestvaco Corporation, UPM-Kymmene Corporation, Borregaard LignoTech, Tembec, Inc., and Domtar Corporation are some of the key vendors in the market.
