Global Crude Tall Oil Derivative Market - Segmented by Derivative, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The crude tall oil derivative market is estimated to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). North America is expected to account for the major share of the market. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a strong growth in the production during the forecast period, owing to an increase in the applications as an emulsifier and an increase in the industries, including soap and rubber.
Growing Usage of Resin Additives
Tall oil is extensively used in resin additives, such as the applications including alkyds, PVC stabilizers, epoxy additives, polyamides. The increasing application of resin additives in various industries, such as plastics, packaging, automotive, furniture, construction & building, and others, is driving the demand for tall oil to produce additives. The increasing production in the end-user industry, owing to the rising demand for electric vehicles and SUV’s in automotive industry resulting in an added demand for tires, boom in construction activities, rising demand for packaging with an emerging trend of online food orders, e-commerce, and e-retail business, the global demand for additives has been increasing, which in turn, is driving the demand for crude tall oil from the resin additive industry.
Tall Oil Fatty Acid serves as a Major Derivative
Crude tall oil is extensively used to produce tall oil fatty acids. Besides tall oil fatty acids (TOFA), crude tall oil is fractionated in refineries into tall oil heads, distilled tall oil fatty acids (DTO), tall oil rosin (TOR), and tall oil pitch (TOP). TOFA is used in its raw form and as precursors to manufacture an array of products. The TOFA derivatives include PVC stabilizers, dimers, alkyds, synthetic lubricant polyamides, and varied oilfield chemicals. Hence, the increasing demand for such crude tall oil derivatives is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
North America to Dominate the Market
North America is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, followed by Europe. North America majorly produces tall oil fatty acids and rosins. In the region, the United States is expected to dominate the market in terms of production. In Europe, Sweden and Finland are the major producers of tall oil derivatives and are expected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period. Moreover, with the increasing awareness, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness an increase in the production and demand of crude tall oil derivatives in the coming years.
