According to a report by Grand View Research, Inc., the worldwide lignin market is predicted to attain USD 913.1 million by 2025. Lignin is a natural polymer found in the cell walls of plants and is the chief constituent of wood. It can be extensively used as an adhesive, binder, and concrete admixture.
Lignin can be widely used as for dust control and has emerged as the best possible substitute for calcium chloride. Rising concerns over air pollution and health risks have increased the need for dust control in residential, industrial, agricultural, and commercial sectors and this can propel the market over the forecast period (2014 to 2025). In addition, increasing application of carbon fibers in automotive and construction industries due to their low weight is projected to boost market growth. Growing use of the product in animal feed is also expected to have a positive impact on the market. Rapid development of oil and gas industries across the world is also expected to fuel the market in the near future.
In November 2017, Enerkem Inc., one of the leading biofuel producers, received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to trade cellulosic ethanol produced at their facility located at Edmonton, AB, Canada. In September 2017, the company announced the commercial production of cellulosic ethanol using non-recyclable and non-compostable mixed municipal solid waste.

On the down side, strict guidelines limiting the manufacturing of polymers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is likely to restrain the market. Additionally, string entrules regarding deforestation around the world may hamper market growth.
The worldwide lignin market can be fragmented on the basis of product and application. Based on product, the market can be classified into ligno-sulphonates, kraft lignin, organosolv lignin, and others. Ligno-sulphonatesappearedas the largest product segment in 2015 and accounted about more than 88% of the global share. As per application, the market can be categorized into macromolecules and aromatics. Macromolecules estimated for over 69% of the total market volume in 2015.
Geographically, the market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central and South America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2015, Europe acquired the largest market share and estimated for 40% of the total volume. The market in this region is likely to witness steady growth as an intermediate for many chemical compounds including phenolic resins and BTX. Additionally, REACH guidelines for curbing transportation of synthetically extracted chemicals and increasing demand for dust controllers for reducing air pollution during construction is anticipated to have a positive impact on the market. In 2015, Germany captured the largest individual market share of more than15% inthe Europe market.
