Rosin Resin Market

Global Market Study on Rosin Resins: Rising Demand for Bio-based Products for Various End-use Applications to Ascend Market Growth

Rosin Resin Market is segmented by source type Gum Resin, Wood Resin, Tall Oil Resin, also by product type that is Rosin Esters, Hydrogenated Rosin Resins, Dimerized Rosin Resins used in Road Marking, Rubbers, Coatings and Inks, Adhesives, Paper Sizing.


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.

Increasing Adoption in Pharmaceutical Industry: With technological innovations in the pharmaceutical industry, product developments such as the formulation of microcapsules and nano-particles enables implementation of rosin resin in this industry.

Rosin resins also have terpene profile and high THC value, making them extremely medicinal potent. Moreover, rosin resins show excellent film forming and coating properties. Hence, they are also used for tablet film and enteric coating purposes, resulting in consumer inclination toward the adoption of rosin resins.

In addition, rosin resin is soluble in alcohol and gasoline, and thus, is used as an ingredient in paints and coatings. The paints & coatings industry has been witnessing steady growth, due to the growing demand from construction and automotive industries, subsequently fueling the growth of the rosin resins market space.

Manufacturers’ Focus: Economic Range Products: Manufacturers in the global rosin resins market are continuously developing new production technologies to improve yield, minimize environmental footprint, radically reduce energy use, and improve product quality. Additionally, high efficiency analytical techniques such as mass spectrometry and gas chromatography have helped enhance the purity and quality of pine chemical products.

The global rosin resins market is a competitive market space, where end users demand economic products for their end products. In order to meet this demand, manufacturers are developing high quality and affordable products. This factor is also responsible for product innovation, which increases the demand for and sale of rosin resins.
