SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global Pine-Derived Chemicals Market was valued at 3951.53 million USD in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. This chemical is naturally derived from pine trees and has found an enormous application in the development of soaps & detergents, printing inks, plasticizers, fragrance chemicals, adhesives, resins, and surface coatings, among the others in the conventional market, these are also famous in healthcare, construction and adhesive manufacturing industry, etc. The pine chemicals derived as a by-product of sulfate pulping process include rosin, turpentine, tall oil, resin, etc., or from gums, Kraft pulp, and stumps. Major chemicals like turpentine, tall oil fatty acids (TOFA) and resin acids.
The market of pine-derived chemicals is predominantly driven by its extensive use in construction, printing and publishing, cleaning products, paper, and a variety of other industrial activity. It is used in the synthesis of antitumoral Taxol which is used in the preparation of flavor mixtures like strawberry, Rosmarinus, dill, raspberry, and spearmint. Furthermore, the market's growing application in the production of plasticizers, pharmaceuticals, solvents, repellents, insecticides, antimicrobial and antiviral compounds, perfumery, and toiletries has widened its functional scope.
Owing to the capital-intensive nature of the market, direct manufacturing employment is modest, which includes repairing operators, plant operators, supervisors, trade & craft workers, and other related occupations. Opportunities for the abovementioned group of people are also restrained by the increasing automation in manufacturing processes. Automation has significantly driven the throughput and has been regarded as a key contributor to improved productivity. However, due to the gradual shift towards technology-centric operations, the industry employs chemists, scientists, chemical engineers, technicians, sales & management staff, IT professionals, and other technical support personnel.
Based on product type, the pine-derived chemicals market has been segmented into gum turpentine (GT), tall oil fatty acid (TOFA), gum rosin (GR), tall oil rosin (TOR), and others. Based on application type, the market segmentation includes printing inks, adhesives & sealants, surfactants, paints & coatings, and others. Paint & coating is the most notable industry as pine chemicals are widely used as curing additives and alkyd paints. Adhesives and sealants signify yet another key end-use application as pine chemicals are being extensively used in construction adhesive tackifiers tape, non-wovens, bookbinding, electronics, and can-end sealants. These have also found application in the production of chemical additives, including fuel, lubricants, metalworking, and other additives; PVC stabilizers and plasticizers; fragrances and flavors; food additives; seed coatings; cosmetic additives; and other specialties. Pine chemical called ethoxylates is used as a surfactant in detergent.
