Tannin Market Outlook - 2021-2030

The global tannin market size was valued at $2.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $4.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Tannin is a complex chemical substance derived from phenolic acids (also known as tannic acid). Tannins are classified as phenolic compounds, which are found in many species of plants. Commercial tannins are pale yellow to light brown amorphous substances in the form of powder, flakes, or a spongy mass. They are used chiefly in tanning leather, dyeing fabric, and making ink, and in various medical applications.

Global Tannin Market, By Region

Europe accounted for a major share in tannin market in 2020. European countries have been extensively manufacturing wines from ages, as drinks have been a regular part of the traditional meals across the region. Moreover, innovation in terms of flavor, color, and packaging customizations has led to increased sales of wines. Therefore, owing to high demand, considerable land areas were converted into vineyards, especially in the countries of Spain, Italy, France, and Turkey, as their local wines gained popularity across the globe. Manufacturers, thus, procure grapes in bulk from these vineyards to produce wine at lower prices. Tannins are widely used in wineries across Europe to protect wine from oxidation during barrel aging. Rapid development of the wine industry across the region is likely to drive the demand for tannins, thereby augmenting the growth of tannin market across the region.

COVID-19 impact analysis

  • According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), owing to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the global economy shrunk by 3.0% in 2020. Many countries are under stringent lockdown, which have forced several sectors to shut down their operations. This has halted manufacturing activities and reduced the demand and production of tannin.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the overall leather industry, including the footwear, apparel, and accessories. Retailers faced severe losses during the first two quarters of 2020. According to a report by the World Footwear, the sales of footwear declined by close to 32.0% in the U.S. at the end of the first two quarters of 2020. Low demand for footwear, in general, is subsequently expected to decrease the sales of leather shoes.  Many manufacturers in the market have historically relied on China for finished products as well as raw materials used in the manufacturing of various leather goods. The pandemic has, however, disrupted the supply chain, causing severe losses in terms of product shipment and on-time delivery. Due to this, the demand for tannin from leather manufacturers and tanners has declined significantly in 2020, and is likely to be to affected in 2021. However, the demand for tannin from leather industry is anticipated to recover in the first half of 2022, as various leather goods manufacturing players are about to restart their manufacturing activities.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global wine distribution channel due to the extensive closure of and restrictions on hotels and restaurants across the world. The sudden outbreak of pandemic has affected around 77.0% of hotels, with turnover falling by 60.0% across the sector, while restaurants witnessed decline by 91.0% by the end of 2020 across the globe. Owing to decline in sales of wine across the globe, the production of wine has reduced, which, in turn, affected the consumption of tannin from wineries, thereby negatively impacting the growth of the market. 
  • Tannin is widely used in production of wood adhesive. Attributed to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the construction of various residential, commercial, and industrial projects has been halted amid lockdown. As a result, the demand for wood adhesives to be used in glue laminated beams, windows, and doors has been declined. In addition, amid lockdown, various wood adhesive manufacturing plants have shut down their production activities, which resulted in decline in demand for tannin.

Analyst Review

According to the analyst, the global tannin market is anticipated to witness growth during the forecast period, driven by surge in demand from leather tannery, wine, paints & coatings, and adhesive manufacturing industries. Tannins are insoluble proteins and do not decompose. Owing to this property, they are utilized for the manufacturing of leather. In leather tanning processes, the skins of animals are treated. The demand for leather is increasing, owing to its varied applications in furniture, automotive seats, and clothing. In addition, rise in disposable income of people and surge in demand for leather products are expected to fuel the growth of the industry. Tannins have high anti-oxidation properties, which are required for the production of wines. It provides color stabilization in wines and gives it the desired structure. These extracts help the wines to age better, ferment properly, and gain a distinct aroma. Increase in alcohol production and its simultaneous consumption are factors anticipated to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in demand for manufacturing of wooden products has propelled the sale of wood adhesives. They are utilized in the manufacturing of wood adhesives. Non-hydrolysable tannins are preferred for this purpose. Wood adhesives are utilized for various applications, including furniture, construction, and musical instruments. Tannin is extensively utilized in the manufacturing of anti-corrosive primers, which withstand harsh weather conditions. Primers manufactured with tannins as additives help to smoothen rusted steel surfaces. These factors combined are expected to positively drive the growth of the industry.

However, carcinogenic effects of tannin are expected to hamper the growth of the tannin market during the forecast period. Conversely, rise in number of start-ups offering innovative products and technologies is expected to provide growth opportunities for the tannin market during the forecast period.
