Lignosulfonates Market: Dynamics

Lignosulfonate is a brown amorphous powder. It has no odor and is not hygroscopic. It forms colloidal solutions or dispersions in water, but is insoluble in organic solvents. Lignosulfonates are biopolymers that are salts of lignosulfonic acid formed during the sulfite method of pulp production. Lignosulfonates differ in composition, as the wood differs. The extent of lignin degradation varies, as a different number of sulfonic groups may have been added. Lignosulfonates are used in animal feed binders, concrete additives, oil well additives, and dust control industries. The animal feed binders segment includes lignosulfonates, which are commonly used in commodities such as coal briquettes, ceramics, mineral dust briquetting, and production of plywood or particleboards.

The global animal feed binders sector is expected to expand considerably during the forecast period. Thus, the rise in the production of animal feed binders, concrete additives, and dust control is projected to boost the demand for lignosulfonates during the forecast period.

Manufacturers are focusing on the animal feed binders industry, as the share held by this segment is likely to increase during the forecast period.
