Market players are responding to these new opportunities by expanding their global presence and product lines. tall oil fatty acid (TOFA), tall oil rosin (TOR), gum rosin, sterols, and pitch are types of pine chemicals. Gum turpentine and rosin are acquired by distilling crude gum, known as oleoresin, which is collected from live pine trees.

China is the largest producer and exporter of gum rosin in the world. Pine chemicals are widely used due to their role in reducing the carbon footprint and in avoiding exploitation of fossil fuels. Products that use pine chemicals include printing inks, adhesives, paints, coatings, paper making additives, chewing gum, food additives to reduce cholesterol, soap fragrances, perfumes, food flavours, vitamin intermediates, drilling fluids, mining chemicals, surfactants, and other consumer goods.

The pine-derived chemicals market is highly fragmented with the key market players driving the growth using strategies such as agreements, expansions, acquisitions, and new product launches. The market is competitive with the leading players involved in the research & development of new pine chemical products and their applications. Manufacturers have patented their technologies for the manufacturing of pine chemicals. Any new entrant has to compete with well-established players such as Eastman Chemicals (U.S.), Archer Daniels Midland Company (U.S.), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), Harima Chemicals Group (Japan), and Arakawa Chemical Industries, Ltd. (Japan) to penetrate and gain a considerable share in the market, which is one of the key entry barriers.
