Cellulose Acetate Propionate Market: Introduction

  • Cellulose acetate propionate is a free-flowing powder with low-odor. It is especially used in printing inks and clear overprint varnishes, and nail lacquer topcoats due of its wide solubility in ink solvents and compatibility with other resins used in printing inks.
  • Cellulose acetate propionate exhibits excellent anti-blocking properties. Its grease resistance is superior to that of many other film formers. Cellulose acetate propionate helps reduce surface defects such as pinholes and craters; and typically improves wetting, block resistance, adhesion, and solvent release, thus enabling faster print and coat speeds when used in inks and coatings.

Key Drivers of Global Cellulose Acetate Propionate Market

  • The global cellulose acetate propionate market is driven by the increase in application of cellulose acetate propionate in various products such as printing inks and coating products. The chemical compound is used to clear overprint varnishes. It is also used as a film coating material.
  • Cellulose acetate propionate is primarily employed as a pharmaceutical excipient due to its solubility that is dependent on the pH of aqueous media. Cellulose acetate propionate-based enteric coatings are resistant to acidic gastric fluids, but are easily soluble in mildly basic medium of the intestine.
  • Enactment of supportive regulatory framework by various regulatory bodies, such as the FDA and the EPA, is driving the global cellulose acetate propionate market
