Wide Applications of Gum Rosin to Support the Growth of the Global Market for Colophony

The global colophony industry is expected to show healthy growth in the forecast period of 2021-2026 due to the rising demand for gum rosin as an adhesive. Colophony’s most common form is known as gum rosin, which accounts for about half of the world’s production of colophony, while over a quarter is produced as tall oil rosin. It is also widely used due to its sticky properties in the production of printing inks, rubber, chewing gum, coatings, and other products. Due to its applications in a large number of industries, there are several factors driving the growth of gum rosin, especially, the rising demand for natural substitutes for adhesive bases in these industries.

 

Increasing Demand for Natural Adhesives in Europe to Boost the Demand for Colophony

While the Asia Pacific is the leading producer and importer of colophony and its products, the spread of environmental awareness, especially in Europe, is leading to a surge in demand for biodegradable products. Due to colophony’s properties as a natural adhesive, it is being used as a substitute for synthetic materials in several industries, including adhesives, printing inks, coatings, and others. This is expected to be a key factor in the growth of the global colophony industry during the forecast period.

The market can be broadly categorised on the basis of grade into:

  • X (Pale Yellow)
  • WW (Slight Yellow)
  • WG (Yellow)
  • N (Deep Yellow)
  • M (Yellow Brown)
  • K (Yellow Red)

The global colophony industry can also be broken down based on form as:

  • Crystals/Chunks
  • Lumps

Colophony finds its applications in the following industries:

  • Adhesives
  • Printing Inks
  • Food Processing
  • Rubber

Increasing Demand for End-Use Products to Drive the Growth of the Global Market for Colophony

The growth in the adhesives, printing inks, and coatings industries has led to a healthy growth in the market size for colophony. Both tall oil and gum rosin are used in rubber production, and the developing rubber industry in the Asia Pacific is a major factor driving the growth of the colophony industry during the forecast period.

Colophony is used in the pharmaceutical industry for making coatings and films for tablets, as well as for the formulation of microcapsules and nanoparticles. The recent surge in the pharmaceutical industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to increase the demand for colophony in the future. However, the rising prices for colophony in comparison with other pine resin-based substitutes may affect the growth of the industry adversely.
