    Market Insights

    Lignosulfonates Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period.  The market is driven by robust growth in the construction sector. Lignosulfonates are primarily used as water-reducing chemicals, and they provide the required cement workability even at high temperatures. The major regions prone to severe problems associated with elevated temperatures, which reduce cement workability, are Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Plasticizers are typically made from lignosulfonates, whereas superplasticizers are made from modified lignosulfonates. Infrastructure development and population growth in BRIC countries are likely to drive the lignosulfonates market in both the residential and non-residential sectors. Furthermore, the low cost of the product makes it more suitable for use in these countries, where the demand for water-reducing chemicals is extremely high. In the animal feed industry, lignosulfonate is primarily used as animal feed binder (pellet binder). It provides calcium and sodium, which act as inorganic electrolytes that are beneficial to animal health. Furthermore, it balances the beneficial bacteria in the animal body and promotes feed efficiency, increasing body animal weight by up to 10%. When calcium lignosulfonate is added to the feed, the cecal pH drops significantly. This is ultimately beneficial to the health of the animal's gastrointestinal tract. The above-mentioned factors are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
