DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - February 24, 2016) - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Pine-Derived Chemicals Market -- Global Trends & Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The pine-derived chemicals market is expected to reach $4.8 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of around 4.7 % from 2015 to 2020. With the rapid increase in pollution and exploitation of fossil fuels, the pressure on the ecosystem has compelled the need to find other alternatives to replace fossil fuels by renewable raw materials.

Pine chemicals are obtained from living trees, dead pine stumps & logs, and as by-products of sulfate (or Kraft) pulping.
