For the recovered paper it was found out to be 17, 092 metric tons in 2015, and 17,231 in 2017, which is an increase of 199 metric tons or 1.16%., which totals up to 26,589 metric tons in 2015 and 26,864 in 2017. Consequently, the production of paper and paperboards for different purposes such as newsprint was recorder to be 26,228 metric tons in 2015 and increased to 26,515 in 2017. This shows that the as the demand for pulp and paperboard is rising with the production also being increased to meet the demands for different applications such as print media, newspapers among others. This, in turn, resulted in an increase in the demand for tall oil rosins for use as printing inks and is bolstering the market growth.

The demand for tall oil fatty acids is increasing further owing to the fact that it is a vegetarian-friendly product and is also an affordable compound that is used in place of tallow fatty acids for the production of soaps and lubricants.

In the context of soaps and lubricants production, the product used to carry out this process is tallow fatty acids, which are considered as one of the substitutes for tall oil fatty acids. However, as the tall oil fatty acids are a more cost-effective and vegetarian-friendly solution, they are increasingly used in place of tallow fatty acids. This factor is also leading to a rise in the demand for tall oil rosins and causing a surge in the market growth over the forecast period.

  • Foreverest Resources Ltd. is one of the companies that is involved in the manufacture and provision of different types of chemicals for catering to different types of applications in various end-user industries also offers Tall Oil rosin under its product portfolio. The product it provides is called the “Tall Oil Rosin X Grade”. This product has been synthesized by carrying out the vacuum distillation process on crude tall oil and appears a mixture of abietic, ihydroabietic, palustric, and neoabietic resin acids among others. This product is available in a galvanized iron drum packaging, which weighs about 225kg. It can be used in a variety of applications such as a supplement at alkyd resins for producing hard and shiny lacquer paint coatings, for the production of rubber goods, for soldering the process in electronics industries among some others.
  • Forchem Oyj, which is considered as one of the leading companies dealing with the provision of different types of tall oil derivatives and products such as distilled tall oil, tall oil fatty acids also provide tall oil rosins. There are two types of tall oil rosins available and are called the “TOR FOR85” and “TOR FOR90”. The first product is a type an un-distilled tall oil rosin product, that contains the right content of abietic type rosin aids and is increasingly suitable for different applications such as printing ink binders, rubber production, adhesive resins among others. The latter product, however, contains high amounts of abietic type rosin acid and is also referred to as unmodified tall oil rosin, it is used for purposes such as printing ink binders and adhesive resins.

The North American region is estimated to hold a notable share over the forecast period owing to the well develop chemical industry and the rising usage in adhesive applications. On the other hand, the Asia Pacific region is poised to show modest growth due to rising usage of tall oil in perfumes and owing to the flouring paper and pulp industry.

The North American region is estimated to hold a significant share over the forecast period owing to the fact that the chemical industry is well established in the counties such as the US and there is an increasing amount of investment being made in order accelerate the development of the manufacturing industry and the product quality. This is leading to the use of tall oil rosins in adhesives as binding agents to make their effect more profound and improve their tack, which is referred to as the sticking power of the adhesive.

The Asia Pacific region, on the other hand, is poised to show modest growth over the forecast period owing to the flourishing cosmetics and beauty products industry in countries such as China, as the tall oil rosins are increasingly being used to manufacture soaps and perfumes. Moreover, its use as coatings for consumer ethnics is also facilitating the increase in the region’s market share as the consumer electronics industry of China is booming. Another factor that is contributing to the growth of the region is the increasing production of pulp and paper in countries such as Japan.
