Segment Analysis

The global tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) market has been segmented by product type into linoleic acid, oleic acid, and others.

The linoleic acid segment accounted for over 40% share of the global market and is expected to follow the same trend during the forecast period. In 2017, the oleic acid segment accounted for US$ 430 million due to its increasing application in oilfield chemicals and oleochemicals. The others segment includes palmitic acids, stearic acids, and maleic acid, which hold less than one-fourth of the global market share.

Tall oil fatty acid is regarded as an anti-corrosion, low-odor substance, which is hard and has faster dry time that makes it suitable for use in clear coat varnish and high gloss alkyd paints. The anti-corrosion property of TOFA is expected to boost the growth of the market. The coating segment is expected to register a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Tall oil fatty acid is an intermediate chemical that is widely used in oilfields and lubricants as a fuel additive. The reaction of carboxyl groups helps to form soaps, epoxies, lubricants, detergents, and coatings. Hence, the lubricants segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
