Global Cellulosic Polymers Market – Introduction

  • Cellulosic polymers act as thickeners, stabilizers, and viscosity modifiers in several end-use industries including oilfield chemicals, pharmaceutical, food, personal care products, construction, adhesives, paper, and textile
  • The food & beverages industry witnesses high demand for cellulosic polymers, particularly cellulose ethers. Cellulose ethers thicken and stabilize foods and increase the fiber content in foods by replacing fat. Prevalence of intricate obesity issues among people across the globe is expected to be a key matter of concern in the near future, wherein cellulosic polymers are likely to be a suitable option as a fat-replacer.
  • Film-forming properties of cellulosic polymers reduce the surface porosity of paper and produce a tougher printing surface. Cellulosic polymers act as additives, sizing agents, co-binders, and rheology modifiers in paper processing. The pulp & paper industry is anticipated to witness significant demand for cellulosic polymers for use in several applications including specialty papermaking, toweling, and coated and uncoated paperboards.
  • Selection criteria for cellulosic polymers include price-performance trade-offs, availability, and ease of product reformulation

Global Cellulosic Polymers Market, by Product

  • Based on product, the global cellulosic polymers market can be classified into cellulose esters, cellulose ethers, and regenerated cellulose. Cellulose esters include cellulose acetate (CA), cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), and cellulose acetate propionate (CAP).
  • Cellulose ethers include hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), and hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC), ethyl cellulose (EC), and methylcellulose (MC). As of 2018, CMC was the key cellulose ether consumed globally and the trend is estimated to continue throughout the forecast period.
  • Regenerated cellulose include fibers such as Viscose, Modal, Lyocell, and Cupro and hydrated cellulose foils. Lyocell is a material made from wood cellulose or pulp. Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fiber produced by treating cotton cellulose with cuprammonium salts. Regenerated cellulose witnesses substantial demand in apparel, lining, active wear, and home textile applications.
  • Viscose staple fiber (VSF) is a biodegradable manmade fiber with properties similar to cotton. The processing of VSF imparts unique characteristics, such as low moisture retention and high strength, to it. VSF is projected to witness increasing demand for use in the production of textiles and apparels in the next few years. It is also anticipated to witness significant demand in home textile, apparel, and non-woven applications in the near future.

Global Cellulosic Polymers Market, by End-use Industry

  • Based on end-use industry, the global cellulosic polymers market can be divided into food & beverages, personal care, pulp & paper, oil & gas, textile, construction, and others (detergents & laundry, paints & adhesives, etc.)
  • Rise in the consumption of dairy products, baked goods, and frozen foods, amidst the trend of escalating demand for gluten-free desserts, is expected to present immense growth potential to the cellulosic polymers market in the food & beverages segment from 2019 to 2027
  • Cellulosic polymers are extensively employed as film formers, additives, and modifying resins in the construction industry. The personal care industry is projected to witness notable demand for cellulosic polymers for use as stabilizing and suspending agents in skin and hair care products and as dental impression materials in the next few years. Cellulosic polymers play an important role as stabilizers for tablet coatings in the pharmaceutical industry.
