Cellulose gum (carboxymethylcellulose) is a natural polymer that is derived from cellulose. It is one among the organic compounds available globally. The development in the emerging third-world countries is also driving the modified cellulose gum market. As a thickening agent, it is used in various food items such as dairy and bread. Apart from the food industry, modified cellulose gum is used for medical products as well as some other familiar products. Odorless, high viscosity, harmless, hypoallergenic, non-toxicity, and chemical stability are some of the key properties of modified cellulose gum.
An adequate number of food products such as beer, ice cream, jam, jelly, ice cake, dairy products, and drinks use cellulose gum. Cellulose is a low-fat product, and as additive, it gives thickness to food, improves food texture, and if used with water, it binds food very well. It prevents sugar crystallization in ice cream and works as a form stabilizer in beer. Unlike other stabilizers, it does not cause adverse effects on health. These positive aspects boost the modified cellulose gum market. Cellulose gum is used in food products, especially in beverages, as it improves taste, strengthens in high temperatures, and offers stable performance. Also, it works as thermal gelatin, a function that is possible without any change in texture or flavor of the beverage. The application of carboxymethyl cellulose in the floating system can further increase its market.
Cellulose gum is a natural polymer derived from cellulose. It is also known by its chemical name, carboxymethylcellulose sodium. One of the most organic compounds available globally, cellulose is derived from the outer walls of green plant cells. By chemical modification, derivatives from cellulose, such as modified cellulose gum, find varying applications in the food industry, pharmaceutical products and many other familiar products. Cellulose gums and modified cellulose gums are known for their properties of film forming, emulsion stabilizing, viscosity building and binding along with freeze-thaw stabilizing. In elevated temperatures, their gel formation property makes them unique compounds to add in food and bakery products. Food processors and manufacturers use modified cellulose gums to thicken sauces and gravies, gums, stabilize the gas bubbles formed in whipped creams and toppings. Cellulose gum and its derivative modified cellulose gums are used as surfactants, bulking agents and binding agents in prepared foods.
Modified Cellulose Gum (Natural Polymer) Value share in U.S. market
Reasons for Covering this Title:
Modified cellulose gum is composed of internally-linked cross-linked cellulose gum (chemical name carboxymethylcellulose sodium). It is basically an off-white, free-flowing and an odorless powder. Modified cellulose gum is also known as Hydrocolloid or HPC and finds an array of applications across the food and bakery industry. Modified cellulose gum is commonly used as a dispersant and disintegrate in dietary supplements and sweeteners. It is an excellent dissolution, offers fast disintegration and can extend the shelf life of food products. Since other natural exudate markets have been outgrowing the cellulose gum market, manufacturers have the opportunity to explore and expand product applications to modified cellulose gum. Product innovations in the industrial sector and the unique properties of modified cellulose gum can be used to boost the growth of the modified cellulose gum market. Attributing to its gelatinous properties, modified cellulose gum has huge market potential as a thickening agent, thermal gelatin and as a stabilizer in the food industry.

Modified Cellulose Gum Market Opportunities for Market Participants
The demand for modified cellulose gum for application as a thickening agent and stabilizer in manufacturing sauces and savory products is relatively high, and it poses no harm if consumed, unlike other stabilizers. Modified cellulose gum permits dispersion of oil into water and stabilizes beverages to avoid precipitation; subsequently, it is widely used in the food and beverage industry. Also, modified cellulose gum acts a thermal gelatin without changing the flavor or texture of the original beverage. These advantages are an added factor for key players in the global food and beverage industry to adopt and explore applications in various other food products. In addition, this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
