Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Lignin, also referred as monolignols, is a class of complex polymer and are widely used across industries such as construction, oil drilling, pulp & paper, and agriculture. They are a key ingredient used in the concrete admixtures in order to enhance the shelf-life of the structure. They are also used in the production of carbon fibers and polyurethane foams.

The global Lignin market was accounted for US$ 872.2 Mn in terms of value and by the end of 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.7% during the forecast period.

Drivers:

Strong demand for the product from the animal feed industry as a natural additive is expected to foster the market growth of lignin. Lignin plays an important role in the overall development of animal diet and provides high fiber content to the animal which helps in the fight against infections. Increasing use of the product in insecticides and pesticides since it helps to prevent microbial attacks and also control the growing weeds is further fostering the market growth.

Increasing demand for carbon fibers and polyurethane foams from automotive and other manufacturing industries is expected to propel the market growth. High demand for polyurethane foams from end-user industries such as electronic, furniture, automotive, and the packaging is accelerating the market growth of lignin. Growing demand for this polymer from the pulp & paper industry is again expected to bolster the market growth of the lignin.

North America region dominated the global Lignin market in 2019, accounting for 34.2% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively

Market Restraints

The use of lignin in animal feed is regarded as a obstacle to nutrient digestibility in animals. Moreover, it hampers the digestion activity by acting as an obstruction to enzymes. This factor is expected to hinder the market growth of the lignin.

Lack of awareness regarding the benefits and use of the product coupled with the minimal regulatory initiatives by the government is expected to hamper the market growth of lignin.

Market Opportunities

The growing demand for lightweight products from the aerospace industry is driving demand for carbon fiber. This is attributed to the growing need for high performance and fuel-efficient aircraft. Increasing investment in the aircraft industry coupled with the growing adoption of durable and advanced materials for aircraft components is expected to serve major growth opportunities to the market. This is expected to foster the market growth of the lignin.

Increasing use of naturally derived raw materials for the production of polymers is expected to bring new market opportunities. Lignin is used in the manufacturing of phenolic resins, BTX, vanillin, and phenol. Moreover, the expansion of the chemical industry coupled with the rising awareness regarding greenhouse gas emissions is further propelling the market growth of the lignin.

Lignin  | Coherent Market Insights

Global lignin market was valued at US$ 872.2 Mn lignin market in 2019 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 1,096.3 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 2.7% between 2020 and 2027.

Market Trends/Key Takeaways

Increasing investment by key manufacture for developing bio-based carbon products is a growing trend in the market. For instance, in July 2019, Stora Enso has invested Euro 10 million to build a pilot facility for developing bio-based carbon materials based on lignin. Wood-based carbon can be used as a crucial component in batteries typically used in consumer electronics, the automotive industry, and large-scale energy storage systems.

Continuous product innovation by the key manufacturer is one of the major trends in the market. For instance, in April 2018, Stora Enso has launched 'Lineo' bio-based lignin as a renewable replacement for oil-based glue. The newly launched product can be used in a range of applications where fossil-based materials are currently used - for example in resins for plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), laminated veneer lumber (LVL), paper lamination and insulation material.
