Global Sodium Lignosulfonate Market: Overview
Lignosulfonates are abundantly available wood chemicals. These are commonly obtained as a by-product during the sulfite processing of wood pulp. Sodium lignosulfonate is a highly commercialized lignosulfonate. It has applications in construction, ceramics, animal feed industry, mineral powder, chemical industry, textile industry, metallurgical industry, petroleum industry, fire-retardant materials, etc.
Sodium lignosulfonate has applications as concrete admixture, animal feed binder, oil well additives, agriculture chemicals, dust suppressants, lead batteries, and gypsum plasterboards among others. The major application of sodium lignosulfonate is observed in concrete admixture, animal feed binder, and oil well additives. Concrete admixture are water-reducing chemicals which employs sodium lignosulfonate, sometimes blended with other chemicals. Sodium lignosulfonate is primarily used as animal feed binder (pellet binder) in the animal feed industry.

Global Sodium Lignosulfonate Market: Market Segmentation
The study provides a comprehensive view of the sodium lignosulfonate market by dividing it into type, application, and geography segments. Sodium lignosulfonate is available in two forms (type segments): dry and liquid. The applications are segmented into animal feed binder, concrete admixture, oil well additives, agriculture chemicals, dust suppressants, lead batteries, gypsum plasterboards, and others. These segments have been analyzed based on historic, present, and future trends.
Major application of sodium lignosulfonate is in the concrete industry. However, sodium lignosulfonate face steep competition from a number of substitutes in concrete admixture market such as sulfonated naphthalene formaldehyde, sulfonated melamine formaldehyde, and polycarboxylic ether. Besides the concrete admixtures segment, sodium lignosulfonate face steep competition in other application segments such as animal feed binders and oil well additives. Thus, application-specific substitutes are expected to act as a key restraint to the sodium lignosulfonate market during the forecast period.
Regional segmentation includes the current and forecast consumption of sodium lignosulfonate in North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). Market segmentation includes demand for consumption in all the regions individually.
