Lignin grows widely as demand for Animal feed Increases

Increasing demand for carbon fibers and polyurethane foams from automotive and other manufacturing industries is expected to propel the market growth. High demand for polyurethane foams from end-user industries such as electronic, furniture, automotive, and the packaging is accelerating the market growth of lignin. Growing demand for this polymer from the pulp & paper industry is again expected to bolster the market growth of the lignin. 


Lignin is a biopolymer that has several important functions in plants. It adds strength to cellular composites, controls fluid flow, and protects plants from microorganisms. Besides these functions, lignin has several other properties, including being an antioxidant, UV absorber, and even a flame retardant. It also stores energy and is insoluble in most solvents, so it's not useful in plastics or paper. Lignin's chemical structure dictates all of its properties. Due to its large number of aromatic OH groups, it cannot separate easily from crystalline cellulose. Because of its high-aromatic content, lignin isolation requires extensive molecular alteration.


Market Restraints


  • The use of lignin in animal feed is regarded as a obstacle to nutrient digestibility in animals. Moreover, it hampers the digestion activity by acting as an obstruction to enzymes. This factor is expected to hinder the market growth of the lignin.

  • Lack of awareness regarding the benefits and use of the product coupled with the minimal regulatory initiatives by the government is expected to hamper the market growth of lignin.

It has many industrial uses as a binder for particleboard and similar laminated or composite wood products, as a soil conditioner, as a filler or an active ingredient of phenolic resins, and as an adhesive for linoleum. Moreover, it is the presence of lignin in paper pulp that reduces paper permanence and contributes to the yellowing of paper over time. It is a plant component with important implications for various agricultural disciplines. It confers rigidity to cell walls, and thus, is associated with tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses and the mechanical stability of plants. Lignin can also be transformed into agrochemicals such as pesticide, fertilizers, soil improver, and plant growth regulator.


Thus, there is an increasing demand for lignin across various end-use industries.
