Press Release

Global Colophony Market to Grow at a Heathy Rate During 2024-2032, Driven by the Asia Pacific Rubber Industry Growth

Global Colophony Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Colophony Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the global market for colophony is being aided by the global gum rosin market, which attained a value of USD 1.98 billion in 2023. The gum rosin market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2024 and 2032 to reach USD 2.67 billion by 2032.

The steady increase in the Asia Pacific rubber industry is expected to drive the growth of the global colophony industry. Colophony is majorly of two types—gum rosin and tall oil rosin. Both of these find applications in the rubber industry. Their bio-degradable property makes them of increasing relevance as environmental awareness becomes more commonplace globally. Tall oil rosin is also used as a vegetarian-friendly substitute for animal fat in the production of soaps and lubricants.


Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE: EMN) is one of the leading producers of colophony globally. In late 2020, Eastman discussed the benefits of using rosin additives to improve the performance of truck bus radial tyres at the International Elastomer Conference in Cleveland. This is expected to increase the penetration of colophony products in the automotive sector, which can significantly boost the growth of the global colophony industry in the coming years. In May 2021, Kraton Corporation (NYSE: KRA), another leading producer of colophony, launched its new REvolution product line of bio-based, low-colour rosin ester formulations. This is expected to lead to the growth of the rosin ester product line during the forecast period of 2024-2032.
