Lignin Market to Gain Traction, as Bio-Based Materials Gather Impetus

Lignin is a wood component that is proving to be a promising renewable resource. Lignin is extensively used as a bio-based precursor to vanillin, high value aromatic compounds (BTX), phenols and carbon fiber. Increasing lignin demand, as an organic additive is expected to drive the global market over the forecast period. Amongst lignin products, Lignosulphonates are expected to account for around three fourth of global lignin demand. Lignosulphonates are widely used as starting materials in the synthesis of vanillin-a flavoring agent for food, ice cream, and bakery goods.

This method has overthrown the natural vanillin essence which is extracted from vanilla beans .Furthermore, the augmented demand for Lignosulphonates in concrete admixtures is another important factor, which is driving the global lignin market. Another major application of Lignosulphonates is found in oil & gas industry, where it is used to control mud viscosity in deep oil well drilling. In addition, it is also used in the preparation of smooth clay slips for ceramics. The aforementioned factors are likely to increase the demand for Lignosulphonates lignin over the forecast period. Amongst other lignin products, Kraft lignin has high consumption as a foam in fire extinguishers and in printing inks for high speed rotary presses. Kraft lignin is also used for making high grade activated charcoal. Owing to such ingenious applications of lignin in a wide range of industries, demand for lignin is set to heighten over the forecast period.

Europe Reigns Supreme, North America Closing In

From the regional perspective, Europe accounts for over one-third of market share in global lignin market. This region has been identified for its strict regulations regarding emission of greenhouse gases and has provided potential market opportunities for manufacturing of bio-based polymers. Growing demand for light-weight automotive materials and bio-based materials in countries like Germany, France, and Netherlands is positively impacting the growth in the regional lignin market.

Europe is followed by North America, which is also experiencing a similar trend of using bio-based raw materials for product manufacturing. Thus, this region is anticipated to have sustained demand for lignin in the long term forecast. Furthermore, East Asia is one of the lucrative markets for lignin, which is likely to play a key role in driving the global lignin market. China is at the forefront of demand with robust production of activated carbon, binders, preservatives, and polyols in the region, accounting for bulk demand for lignin.

Vertical Integration Remains Key to Success

Global lignin market is consolidated and is led by a leading player Borregaard LignoTech. The company nearly accounts for close to half of the world’s lignin production. Other prominent players with established market presence in global lignin market include Domsjo Fabriker, Domtar Corporation, Ingevity Corporation, Rayonier Advanced Materials, Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd., The Dallas Group Of America Inc. and Wuhan East China Chemical Co., Ltd. Key players are trying to reinforce their position in the market by providing cost-effective solutions. Recent years witnessed a shift of stakeholders towards vertical integration, which helps to maintain a continuous raw materials supply. Increasing value chain integration from lignin manufacturers has been posing entry barriers to new entrants.   

Besides, manufacturers have also been active in strategic collaborations and acquisitions.

  • For instance, in June 2018, Borregaard and Rayonier started a joint-venture company Lignotech Florida. Company will initially operate at a production capacity of 100 thousand per annum.
  • In November 2017, Meridian Waste Solutions, Inc acquired Advanced Lignin Biocomposites LLC that owns and develops lignin recovery, production and application technology. 

The aforementioned strategies adopted by manufacturers aim to serve the ever-rising demand for specialized grades of lignin to be used as bio-based raw materials for the production of binders, BTX products and many more.
