Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market Insights
The carboxymethyl cellulose market will have a moderate growth rate of around 4.5% from 2020 to 2026. Being a derivative of cellulose, and also popularly known as cellulose gum, is a scentless, artificially steady, tasteless, and physiologically dormant or inert material. It is innocuous to the climate, non-poisonous in nature, and hypoallergenic, and hence is considered safe for human use and therefore has wide application in various industries. CMC is prepared using plant-based cellulose, mono chloroacetic acid, and caustic soda which then offers to be a perfect fit as a binder, stabilizer, thickening agent, and dispersant in various verticals such as paper making industry, food industry, agriculture, drug and drug discovery sector and so on. The major factors driving the adoption of this chemical in the market are rapidly increasing the oil & gas industry and sudden growth in the pharmaceutical industry in terms of both volume and value of specialty drugs, the rising consumption of processed and packaged food in the major Asian and South American countries. Furthermore, the Paper industry is another critical application area of the CMC business in the U.S. Vigorous per capita utilization of paper combined with rising exercises in regards to paper reusing will impel the CMC market in the forecast period.
Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market: By Application
Based on the industrial vertical or potential end-users or applications of CMC, the market can be largely segmented into the pharmaceutical industry, food & beverage industry, cosmetic industry, paints & coatings, agriculture, oil & gas companies, detergent industry, paper & board industry, and other applications. The food and beverage industry will still be the largest share in the entire CMC industry owing to the rapidly increasing consumption of processed, packaged, and bakery food products in major markets across the world.
Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market: By Region
CMC market revenue will have its major share coming from North America and the European region. The reason being, the use of water-soluble CMC is a highly consumed product such as bakery food items, frozen foods, alcohol, etc. The majority of the consumption share is contributed from North America and the European region which will help them maintain their high market position from 2020 to 2026. Moreover, it plays a vital role in the water-retention capacity of the bakery food products and also increases their shelf lives leading to efficient food travel management. The multifunctional part of CMC is the key factor that is probably going to support its market development in the food and refreshment applications. However, the market will grow the fastest for the Asia Pacific region owing to the rapidly growing Pharma industry, personal care industry, and agricultural sector in the South East Asian countries, high revenue generation from the cosmetic industry from countries like South Korea, Japan, and Australia, India, and China and low manufacturing cost of CMC plants.
