Future market Insights

The global coronavirus outbreak has created a number of challenges, facing players in terms of sourcing raw materials for production of pine-derived chemicals. A heavy crackdown on transport traffic and international trade disruptions are restraining the pine-derived chemicals market amid COVID019 pandemic. The market has been projected to surpass a US$ 7.7 Bn value pool in the forecast period between 2020 and 2030 by a new FMI report. The demand for pine-derived chemicals is sliding owing to the current pandemic, which has resulted in producers seeking alternative sourcing partners to keep operations running.

Among products available in the market, the demand for tall oil rosin (TOR) is considerably high. It is also projected  to expand at a rapid pace over the forecast tenure. TORs are unmodified to provide a financially competent and adaptable starting stage for a few end-use applications and specific customer procedures.

Rosin acid present in tall oil is used in the polymerization and compounding of rubber, for imparting water resistance to paper, as well as in adhesives and in inks. It is the key ingredient of rosin, which musicians use to strengthen the grip of bows used for string instruments. Due to diverse applications of the tall oil rosin segment, its demand is driving the market.

Pine-derived chemicals find usage in various industries such as printing inks, adhesives and sealants, rubber, paint and coatings and others. The rising application across these industries will pave the way for the growth of the market
