Lignin is a complex polymer of aromatic alcohols which is derived from wood and is an integral part of secondary cell walls of trees in the form of timber and lumber. Lignin is extensively used as a precursor in the manufacture of aromatics and macromolecules. Lignin-containing aromatics and macromolecules which are used in a wide range of end-uses including dust control, animal feed, concrete admixtures, dispersants, binders, and adhesives.

The global lignin market is estimated to grow from $XX million in 2018 to $957 million by 2027 at a CAGR of 2.19% between 2019 and 2027. Also, the global lignin market is estimated to grow from XX kilotons in 2018 to 1742 kilotons by 2027, at a CAGR of 3.23% between 2019 and 2027. The base year considered for the study is 2018 and the estimated period is between 2019 and 2027. Key factors that are responsible for the market advancement are:

  • Usage of lignin as a dust collector
  • Usage of lignin as an additive in concrete

However, the market is primarily driven by usage of lignin as an additive in concrete. Lignin is highly soluble which makes it easier to combine with any other ingredient. A new bioethanol method was devised to reduce carbon dioxide emissions during the production of concrete.

An increasing trend towards utilizing sustainable materials is expected to play an important role in formulating new methods of reducing carbon footprints. Lignin is being increasingly utilized as an additive in concrete as it functions as an effective water reducer and controls the rheological properties of the base material.

In terms of application segment, aromatics lead the market in terms of revenue ($ Million) with around XX% market share in 2018 & macromolecules leads the market in terms of volume (kilotons) with around XX% market share in 2018. Lignin is majorly used as an intermediate to manufacture macromolecules, which are further processed to form biofuels, bitumen, bio-refinery catalysts, activated carbon and carbon fibers. Rising demand for lightweight materials in automotive and aerospace industries have increased the importance of carbon fibers. Also, regulatory inclination towards reducing greenhouse emissions and increasing awareness to earn carbon benefits has compelled polymer manufacturers to increase expenditure on the development of naturally derived raw materials. As a result, lignin is expected to be utilized as an intermediate for the production of vanillin, phenol, BTX, and phenolic resins.

Global lignin market is also facing some challenges with the gap between R&D and consumer products & low consumer awareness. Lignin is a complex polymer of aromatic alcohols derived from wood. Lignin is typically composed of carbon, hydrogen, ash, and oxygen. The unique molecular structure of the compound allows it to be easily absorbed any solvent. Over XX billion tons of lignin is present in the biosphere of which approximately X.X% is used for commercial applications, and the rest is burned as a low-value fuel.

The report on global lignin market includes segmentation on the basis of product and application.

Product is sub-segmented into:

  • Ligno-Sulphonates
  • Kraft Lignin
  • Organosolv Lignin
  • Other Lignin Products

Application is sub-segmented into:

  • Macromolecules
  • Aromatics

Geographically, the global lignin market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

The regional paradigm of global lignin market is dominated by European region by capturing the largest market share in terms of revenue ($ million) with XX% in 2018. Also, the global lignin market is dominated by European region by capturing the largest market share in terms of volume (kilotons) with XX% in 2018. European Commission passed a directive under the name, Renewable Energy Directive (RED), mandating 20% of EU energy production from biomass by 2020. This policy is expected to augment the production of biofuels, biopolymers and other bio-based chemicals. Chemical manufacturers including BASF, DSM and Purac, have increased spending on the development of eco-friendly raw materials. As a result, the lignin market in Europe is expected to foresee growth as intermediate for numerous chemical compounds such as BTX and phenolic resins.

On the flip side, the Asia Pacific region is expected to surge with the fastest growth rate during the forecasted period. Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of XX% during the forecast period and is anticipated to reach $XX million by revenue ($ Million) in 2027. Also, Asia Pacific Region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of XX% during the forecast period and is anticipated to reach XX kilotons by volume (Kilotons) in 2027. The increasing trend towards the development of products through bio-based sources is expected to drive lignin demand over the forecast period. In addition, the presence of a robust pulp and paper manufacturing industry in the region is anticipated to augment lignin production. Rising adoption of manufacturers to install state-of-the-art equipment to enhance lignin yield is expected to propel lignin production over the next nine years.

The market has a number of players, and some of the key players involved in global lignin market are:

  • Ingevity Corporation
  • Domtar Corporation
  • Borregaard Lignotech
  • Aditya Birla Group (Domsjö Fabriker AB)
  • Stora Enso OYJ
  • Others

Market share analysis along with company profiles of the prominent market players are discussed in detail. Most of the companies are looking for strategies such as merger & acquisition, partnership, contracts, agreements, new product launch, in order to gain a competitive edge over other companies.

In February 2019, Ingevity Corporation had completed the acquisition of the Capa™ caprolactone division of Perstorp Holding AB for a cash purchase price of €578.9 million ($652.5 million). The acquisition is expected to be accretive to Ingevity’s earnings and margins in the first year. Also, July 2018, Domtar Corporation announced that it had acquired a majority interest in Prisma Renewable Composites, LLC, a company focused on developing advanced materials from lignin and other natural resources.
