Rosin resin, in particular, is derived from pine chemicals that are extracted from pine trees using the pine tapping process. The use of bio-based materials over synthetic or petrochemical materials offers various advantages. For instance, bio-based materials are eco-friendly and degradable. Further, due to the stable supply of bio-based sources, price fluctuations are low when compared to petrochemical-based materials. Rosin resins exhibit adjustable glass transition temperatures, low volume shrinkage, as well as improve elastic modulus, Young's modulus, shape-memory, flame retardancy, and corrosion protection features are present in comparison with petroleum-based compounds. Furthermore, significant growth in adhesives & sealants as well as the cosmetics industry is anticipated to positively impact the expansion of the global rosin resins market size.
Rosin Resins Market Trends
Favorable Properties of Rosin to Drive its Application in Rubber, Ink, and Paper Industries: Rosin resin is an essential base material for the manufacturing of rubber. It is used as a softening agent in the production of rubber, so as to make rubber soft for kneading. Rosin resin can improve the physical properties of rubber, such as elasticity, surface finish, and cohesion. Demand for rubber has been increasing at a significant rate across various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and aerospace. This is expected to support the growth of the global rosin resins market during the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.
In the paper industry, rosin resin is used as a sizing agent for paper sizing, and can prevent paper from absorbing too much water and avoid hair slip while printing. In printing inks, rosin resin is primarily used as a color carrier and to increase adhesion to paper. The growth of the paper and printing ink industry is expected to lay a foundation for the significant growth of the rosin resins market over the coming years.
