Gum Rosin Market Trends




  • Rising demand from a variety of end-use applications is driving the market growth.




The rising demand for various end-use applications is driving the market CAGR for gum rosin. With rising need from various end-use purposes, most gum rosin is now processed using chemicals instead of naturally produced. It is mostly made up of abietic & pimaric acids, with trace quantities of neutral chemicals. Because of its intrinsic acidity and other chemical qualities, it may be transformed into a wide range of downstream derivatives utilized for various purposes. Among the derivatives are sodium chloride, ester compounds, anhydride of maleic adducts, and polymerized rosins. The bulk of their uses is in manufacturing glues, paper sizing substances, printing ink, solders & fluxes, different surface finishes, insulation substances for electronic devices, synthetic rubber-based chewing gums, detergents and soaps, and other items.


Additionally, the producer has the opportunity to grow in the expanding region. Individual investors acquire or lease property in nations such as Argentina and Brazil to produce tightly spaced plantation trees. Trained laborers, known as "tappers," are either engaged or employed by "tapping companies" to gather oleoresin. This agricultural idea describes and organizes ways of managing forests and tapping. Tappers work for firms that manage pine plantations, employ advanced technology, and are adequately compensated. PCI's utilization of innovative scientific pine genetics and chemical boosters has enhanced oleoresin manufacturing in pine trees. Previously, one worker could tap roughly 1,500-2,000 trees each year using normal PCI procedures; now, through R&D, the total has climbed to 7,000-10,000 trees yearly.


COVID-19 has influenced the worldwide sales of gum rosins. Retailers, distributors, and e-commerce merchants have entered into long-term contracts with the supplier to guarantee that the finished product is available at various places when needed. While some disruption to supply chains is inevitable, there is cause to be optimistic if prior experiences are considered. The hazards associated with lean manufacturing; affordable supply chains were visually portrayed in COVID-19. By SIAM, sales of passenger cars in India fell 51% in March 2020 to 143,014 units. In addition, industrial vehicle sales decreased 88% to 13,027 units, while sales of two-wheeled vehicles dropped 40% to 866,849 units. It also emphasized the significance of strengthening supply-chain resilience skills. The market will likely pick up speed after the epidemic has been contained.


For instance, based on the Rubber Board, synthetic rubber output in India climbed by 15.0% to 380,772 tons in 2018-19, up from 331,221 tons in 2017-18. In contrast, synthetic rubber usage climbed 8.3% yearly to 686,325 tons in 2018-19 from 633,975 tons in 2017-18. As a result, a rapid increase in synthetic rubber manufacturing is propelling the worldwide gum rosin market. Thus, it is anticipated that demand for Gum Rosin will increase throughout the projection timeframe due to the rising demand from various end-use applications. Thus, driving the Gum Rosin market revenue.
