Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA) Market Overview


Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA) Market stood at over USD 25066.3 million in 2019 and is expected to register a CAGR of over 6.12% by the end of 2030. Tall oil fatty acid is formed under a specific temperature with the reaction of esters and carboxylic acids. In general, the tall oil fatty acid is known as a crude tall oil product that is a major substitute for fatty acid plant oil. Basically, TOFA consists of three components like resin acid, fatty acids, and unsaponifiable matters. In the oil and gas industry, the TOFA acts as a viscosity modifier, lubricant, and corrosion inhibitor. Further, the TOFA has a low carbon footprint, which makes it act as a substitute for vegetable oil.
