Lignin, an organic aromatic substance which bind cells, fibers and vessels of wood and lignified elements of plant, it is a highly phenolic polymer that help plant give their physical arrangement. Next to cellulose, lignin is the most generic renewable source available on earth.

Lignin is a natural antioxidant which trap free radicals and absorbs UV radiations. This property of lignin is bringing interest of sunscreen manufacturers to use lignin coating on TIO2 chemical in sunscreen.

When wood is processed into paper pulp, lignin is produced as a waste product. As a natural renewable product obtained in a very affordable price, lignin is widely succeeding admiration over the past few years, earning high potential market in variety of applications including bio- refineries, dispersants and carbon fibers. Carrying natural oxidant property, lignin is widely used in cosmetic and topical formulation.

Based on its purity lignin are of different types ranging from low purity lignin, lignosulfonate, kraft lignin, organosolv to high grade lignin respectively. As the purity of lignin increases volume of production decreases and accordingly lignin applications.

Market Drivers

The availability of raw materials influenced market growth

Rising raw material availability and ease of production are broadening the market's scope of growth. In other words, lignin can be extracted utilizing a variety of processes such as sulfite pulping, kraft pulping, organosolv pulping, soda pulping, and hydrolysis techniques, all of which have a direct impact on market growth. Furthermore, the growth and expansion of the agriculture industry has a direct impact on the market growth rate.

Some of the primary reasons driving the growth of this market are the increased demand for concrete additives in building activities and the increasing use of lignin as an animal feed ingredient.

Raising Awareness to Influence Market Demand and Supply

Increased knowledge of lignin's wide range of applications is driving growing global demand and supply. Low purity lignin can also be recovered from wastes generated in various industries, such as pulp and paper and bio refineries, resulting in a healthy market growth rate.

Lignin Waste Market Restraint

Lack of understanding about the benefits and applications of lignin among industrial and commercial end-users may stymie the growth of the lignin market. Lignin has a wide range of applications in industries ranging from chemicals to food and beverages. However, a dearth of study on the potential applications of this substance may limit its demand in the next years. However, the progressive increase in infrastructure expenditure and increasing animal feed demand will generate chances for lignin suppliers, mitigating these disadvantages.

Lignin is employed in a variety of industries, ranging from chemicals to food and beverages. However, a lack of research into the potential applications for this material may limit demand in the coming years. Despite these challenges, a consistent growth in infrastructure spending and a high demand for animal feed will provide opportunities for lignin providers worldwide.
