Sustainable Growth Opportunities in the Pine-Derived Chemicals Industry

Pine-derived chemicals are extracted from pine trees and find applications in several sectors such as adhesives, paints and coatings, flavors and fragrances, cleaning and detergent products, and more. In terms of value, the global pine-derived chemicals market size is expected to be worth USD 5.5 billion in 2022 and USD 6.8 billion by 2027, with a CAGR of 4.5%. Pine-derived chemicals is a major commercial product of pine trees. Pine-derived chemicals are used in the manufacturing of paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, surfactants, and printing inks. Additionally, it finds its application in cosmetics, vitamin intermediates, pine oil disinfectants & insect repellents, fragrances & perfumes, and food & drink flavors.

How Bio-friendly Products Driving the Pine-Derived Chemicals Industry

The exponential rise in demand for these products can be attributed to consumers’ growing inclination towards environmentally friendly products. These substances function as a means of reducing carbon emissions by using natural and renewable resources as raw materials to create necessities and basic goods. The industry gets its raw materials from the forestry sector and uses living trees, pine stumps, and logs to make the chemicals generated from pine. One well-known example of pine chemistry with a wide range of uses is crude tall oil (CTO). According to a presentation by the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the rise in demand for chemicals generated from pine over other chemical alternatives will cause the global availability of CTO to reach 2.26 million tonnes annually by 2030.
