Additionally, the demands for carboxymethyl cellulose is likely to increase in the personal care sector owing to its rising usage in it. In coming times, the mining sector and mechanical cleansers are foreseen to provide interesting offers for the players in CMC. Increasing contribution via paint and adhesive sector is estimated to fuel the demand regarding the carboxymethyl cellulose in the forthcoming years.
Global Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global carboxymethyl cellulose market is projected to grow at a healthy growth rate with the increasing demand for gluten-free and low-fat frozen desserts. Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) helps in reducing fat content from food; it is also used extensively as a stabilizer, rheology controller, thickener, and water binder. Moreover, increasing use of CMC due to its superior performance and low cost in food and beverages industry is likely to boost the market growth in coming years.
Increasing risks of finding the alternative for CMC is being expected to be a major hindrance in the global market of carboxymethyl cellulose in the coming few years. Some varieties of cellulose ethers in the market that have lower price, have the properties that are same as CMC and is replaceable in a various applications. Possible carboxymethyl cellulose options include: other hydrocolloids: xanthum, pectin, guar gum, carrageenan and microcrystalline cellulose, ethyl cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, etc.
