Crude Tall Oil Derivatives Market size is growing at a CAGR of 4.45% during the forecast period from 2020-2025. With rise in consumption of tall oil, due to the use as a resin in many different industries such as mining, paper & pulps, paint & coatings, synthetic rubber, is likely aid the demand for crude tall oil. Growing public interest towards sustainable and environment-friendly products will further enhance the overall market demand for fuel additives during the forecast period.
- Europe dominates the crude oil derivative market owing to increasing demand from applications paper, paints with others.
- Works as one the most important by-products in the paper making process.
- Increasing Research & Development for alternative of fuels towards tall oil had increased public interest towards Crude Tall oil Derivative Market.
- Tall oils are too risking while using in the industries also, workers need to avoid all contact with skin & eyes and do not allow potential leaks to be discharged into an acid-containing sewer.
By Fraction – Segment Analysis
Tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) fraction segment has dominated the crude tall oil derivatives market and is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to the growing demand from mining chemicals, lubricants, and soaps and detergents applications. It is also known as “liquid rosin” or tallol, is a low cost, viscous yellow-black odorous liquid chemical compound that is a product of crude tall oil vacuum distillation. It is a member of the product family Oleic Acid. Tall oil fatty acids are sold in markets that use them in raw form and as precursors to synthesize an array of products. TOFA derivatives include dimers, alkyds, PVC stabilizers, synthetic lubricant polyamides, and a variety of oilfield chemicals.
By Application – Segment Analysis
Chemical industry holds the largest market share in the End use industries of Crude Tall oil derivative market, as industries such as plastics, materials, and synthetics; drugs; soap, cleaners, toilet goods paints & allied products, agricultural chemicals are wide range of chemical industry which uses Tall oil as a resin during their process of making the product. Crude Tall Oil from the pulp industry was viewed as low-value substance and burned as an alternative to heavy fuel oil, but over the last decade, it has emerged as a promising raw material for the production of commercially relevant synthetic fuels (biodiesel and diesel via hydrodeoxygenation), lubricants, solvents, and many other high-value materials.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America dominated the crude tall oil derivative market with a share of more than x%, followed by Europe. United states in the North America is the largest user of tall oil, as they are looking it as an alternative for fuel. Currently, there are several biorefineries and industries upgrading and marketing tall oil and tall oil-derived chemicals. Typically, various fractions of crude tall oil are separated by distillation over wide pressure ranges, and they are marketed as wood-based chemicals for use in downstream applications.
Drivers – Crude Oil Derivative Market
- Increasing Demand for Low cost products
The demand for crude tall oil is increasing due to growing demand for low-cost and environment-friendly crude oil to be used in various value-added products. Fluctuating prices of fuels and limited resources are diverting chemical companies’ attention towards crude tall oil, which is eco-friendly and is produced as a by-product during the pulping process in the paper and pulp industry. Most Kraft pulping mills sell their waste streams to chemical companies, which further process this waste into value-added products. The growth of the global crude tall oil market depends on the growth of the global wood pulping sector.
- Stringent Government regulations
Stringent government regulations towards using sustainable products will likely aid the public demand for tall oil products, as they are eco- friendly in nature due to which, the market demand for Crude tall oil derivative will also grow. The demand for crude tall oil is increasing due to growing demand for low-cost and environment-friendly crude oil to be used in various value-added products. Crude tall oil can be further refined using separation process to segregate it further into TOFA (tall oil fatty acid), tall oil rosin and distilled tall oil. Crude tall oil finds many usages in chemical and fuel industries due to its cost-effectiveness.
Challenges – Crude Oil Derivatives Market
- Avoiding contacts during production
Tall oils are too risking while using in the industries, workers need to avoid all contact of tall oils with skin & eyes and do not allow potential leaks to be discharged into an acid-containing sewer during refining. Otherwise leakage of Tall oils to the sewers during refining will be a threat. The primary health hazards posed by tall oil are due to skin/eye contact with the liquid and inhalation of the mist or vapor. On heating, this product may generate fumes that irritate the eye and may cause respiratory irritation with throat discomfort, coughing, or difficulty breathing.
- Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Crude tall oil derivates market. In 2019, the market of Crude tall oil derivates has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Major players in the Crude tall oil derivates Market are Kraton Corporation, Forchem Oyj, UPM Biofuels, Dérivés Résiniques et Terpéniques SA (DRT), and SunPine AB, among others.
