LONDON, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lignosulfonates are the most commercial source of lignin that are available at a low cost. These are anionic polymers that are typically soluble in water and obtained as a byproduct during the sulfite process of paper pulping. Low cost and eco-friendly nature of lignosulfonates have increased popularity of lignosulfonates in numerous applications. Lignosulfonates are commercially available in various product forms such as calcium lignosulfonate, sodium lignosulfonate, and magnesium lignosulfonate. These are employed in applications such as oil well additives, concrete admixture, animal feed binder, dust control, and others (tiles & bricks, etc.). Growth in construction and animal feed industries is likely to drive demand for lignosulfonates during the forecast period. However, availability of various application-specific substitutes is projected to hinder growth of the market in the next eight years. In spite of this, high demand for lignosulfonates in oil well additives from countries in the Middle East is anticipated offer immense opportunities to lignosulfonate manufacturers during the forecast period.
