The major types of lignosulphonates (lignosulfonates) in commercial use are sodium lignosulfonate, calcium lignosulfonate and magnesium lignosulfonate. These types depend upon the extraction process of complex polymer. Factors driving this market are high volume availability with low cost, wide-ranging commercial applications, global pulp and paper industry growth, etc. In next few years, Europe is expected to increase in consumption of lignosulfonate owing to demand from construction, oil drilling and mining. In Asia Pacific, China is estimated to become the second-largest consumer of lignosulfonates. Since 2001, the US has become net importer from net exporter creating opportunities for offshore suppliers.

Lignosulphonate is majorly segmented in sodium lignosulfonate, calcium lignosulfonate and magnesium lignosulfonate owing to its commercialization. Sodium lignosulfonate is the major product type of this complex polymer that has a large market. In addition, other types of lignosulfonate are not commercial such as ammonium, aluminum and chromium. A major driver for the future will be finding new, proprietary applications for lignosulfonate.

The major applications of lignosulphonates (lignosulfonates) are concrete additives, animal feed, dyestuff, cosmetics, absorbents, gypsum board, brick manufacturing, dust control, adhesives, vanillin, organic solvent, deflocculating clays, suppressing non-toxic dust, plasticizers in concretes, plasterboard, oil drilling mud, carbon black, coal gasification, dispersants, binders, tanning leather, emulsions, pelletizing/granulation, micronutrients, and many more. The use of lignosulfonates as a precursor for the production of chemicals had limited scope. The conversion of lignosulfonates to vanillin is the most successful process of this kind. This report covers applications such as concrete additive, animal feed, dyestuff, dust control and other applications.

Lignosulfonate is used in many processes and products such as cement additive where it binds cement particles and delays the absorption of water, leading to hardening and the additive influences the structure of the hardened cement. It is vastly for dust laying on roads and industries. Lignosulfonate is used as a filler and binder in ceramic tiles, resins to fiberboards, casting sand and in fodder pellets. It is used as a dispersant in products like fodder, dyes and industrial cleaners.

Lignosulfonates: In the sulfite pulping process, the lignins are sulphonated so they become water soluble and thus can be separated from the insoluble cellulose. The soluble lignins are called lignosulfonates.
Other Related Terms And Report:
Lignin: It is a lignocellulosic biomass component found in large quantities in the world. It is fibrous complex chemical polymer of mono-lignols. They originate naturally in plant tissues as binding the cells, fibres and vessels and are the byproduct from cellulosic conversion process. In addition, this complex polymer helps in the photosynthesis process for plants.
Kraft Lignin: Kraft lignins or sulphate lignins are present in a by-product stream of the Kraft pulping process known as black liquor. The commercial kraft lignins are generally sold in the sulphonated form or as lignin amines.
Organosolv Lignin: Organosolv lignins are lignins produced from a number of different organic solvent-based systems. Two of the most common organosolv processes are ethanol/water pulping (Alcell) and pulping with acetic acid.
