Tall oil fatty acid, also known as TOFA, is derived from crude tall oil through fractional distillation. Crude tall oil is obtained as a by-product of the paper and pulp industry. TOFA is employed in various end-use industries such as paints & coatings, soaps & detergents, lubricants, fuel additive, metal working fluids, and adhesives.
The TOFA market is highly region-oriented; North America and Europe account for the largest share of demand as well as production of TOFA. North America and Europe are the major producers as well as consumers of TOFA. Together, these regions constitute more than 75.0% share of the global market. Availability of high quality raw materials and high production capacity of the pulp and paper industry are the primary factors for the dominance of these two regions. Furthermore, the region depends on imports for most vegetable oil fatty acids, and the domestic production capability of TOFA lowers the dependence on imports of natural fatty acid. Additionally, most vegetable fatty acids are considerably higher in prices compared to tall oil fatty acid, as they have food applications, which lead to higher demand for tall oil fatty acid. Japan accounts for the bulk of demand for TOFA, distantly followed by China and India, in Asia Pacific.
The TOFA market is driven by rising demand for oleic acid in oilfield applications. TOFA is rich in oleic acid, which has high demand in oil field chemicals, lubricants, and metal working fluids. Demand for tall oil fatty acid is high in Europe. The region also has high production capacity. Sweden and Finland account for the major share in terms of demand and production of TOFA and its intermediate products. Other countries in Europe with high production capacities are Austria, France, and Russia. Demand for TOFA is moderate in Asia Pacific, wherein Japan holds the highest demand. However, most tall oil fatty acid produced in the region is manufactured from crude tall oil imported from North America and Europe.
