What are Key Challenges for Global Tall Oil Fatty Acid Market?

  • Asia Pacific accounts for more than 60% of the global population with rapidly increasing demand from various end user industries. Asia Pacific offer large opportunities for the TOFA market. However, the region accounts for a small share of the global TOFA market. North America and Europe account for majority of demand for TOFA.
  • Abundance of alternative natural fatty acids, mainly palm oil fatty acid, in Asia Pacific is the primary reason for the low demand for TOFA in the region. Few companies such as Harima Chemicals Group and some other small-scale manufacturers based in China manufacture TOFA. Asia Pacific imports TOFA significantly from North America and Europe. This reduces cost efficiency of end-product manufacturers, compared to locally produced palm oil fatty acids.  

Lucrative Opportunities for Players in Global Tall Oil Fatty Acid Market

  • Demand for renewable fuel is increasing at a rapid pace across the world. Demand for renewable fuel is projected to surpass 35,000 kilo tons by 2020. The market is estimated to experience the highest growth in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Latin America in the long term.
  • According to the latest EU directive, the member countries of the EU are mandated to source 10% of the transport fuel (bioethanol and biodiesel) from renewable resources. The mandated 10% biofuel is bifurcated into two components; namely bio-fuel from crops and bio-fuel from other sources.
  • Currently, TOFA accounts for minimal percentage of the biofuel market; however, increase in demand for biofuel provides an excellent opportunity for TOFA manufacturers.
  • North America produces and exports biofuel, while demand for biofuel in Europe is largely met by imports. Commercialization of biodiesel from TOFA feedstock could potentially reduce European imports of biodiesel.

North America & Europe to Dominate Global Tall Oil Fatty Acid Market

  • North America and Europe are projected to hold a major share of the global market in the next few years. The strong growth of these two regions can be attributed to the high and easy availability of raw materials. The rising contribution from the U.S. is considered as another major factor that is likely to enhance the growth of the market in the near future.
  • In addition to this, a significant rise in the production capacity of paper and pulp market is likely to support the market growth. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is estimated to register a promising growth in the near future, thanks to the rising demand for tall oil fatty acid from India, China, and Japan.
  • Europe is the second largest producer and consumer of TOFA and is one of the fastest growing regions in terms of demand for TOFA and other tall oil products. Majority of TOFA produced in this region is obtained from Finland and Sweden. Demand of TOFA from these two countries is also the highest in the region.
