The global carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) market was estimated at $1,151.7 Million in 2014 and is projected to register a CAGR of 4.2% between 2015 and 2020.

Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl group in its chain.  CMC is physiologically inert, chemically stable, odorless and tasteless substance which safe for health and environment. The other properties of CMC include high viscosity, non-toxic nature, and hypoallergenic. Major raw materials used in manufacture of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) include plant derived cellulose, caustic soda, and monochloroacetic acid. CMC is widely used as thickener, stabilizer, binder and dispersant in variety of applications such as food and beverages, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, detergents, oil and gas, paper processing and others.

The growth of processed food industry, increasing pharmaceutical and cosmetics production, and the growing oil drilling activities are the major factors driving the growth of CMC market. The increasing disposable income in emerging economies such as China, India, Mexico, Africa and South America has led to increasing consumption of processed food. CMC is widely used as binder, thickener, bulking agent, and suspension agent in several food and beverages applications. The segment accounted for a share of 31.0% of the global CMC market, in terms of volume consumed in 2014. The major factor restraining the CMC market growth is the emergence of substitutes in various applications. Guar gum can substitute in CMC in majority of the applications. The organic/green label associated with guar gum is an added advantage for the product to replace CMC in several applications.

The global carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) market is estimated at $1.15 Billion in 2014 to $1.46 Billion by 2020, with a CAGR of 4.2% from 2015 to 2020. Asia-Pacific dominates the market in terms of consumption of carboxymethyl cellulose. The region accounts for approximately 38.6% share in global CMC market in terms of volume in 2014. The high consumption is mainly due the huge demand from key end-user industries such as food & beverages and pharmaceutical & cosmetics manufacturing in key countries such as China, Japan and India.

Asia-Pacific is the manufacturing hub of carboxymethyl cellulose. The region accounted for over 50.0% of the global CMC production in 2014. China and Japan are the largest CMC manufacturing countries in the region. China has large number of local manufacturers who supply CMC at relatively lower costs and hence, pose a threat to global players in the export market. Europe is the second largest region for manufacture of CMC in 2014. Finland, Turkey, Netherlands, and Italy are the major CMC manufacturing countries in the region. Countries of North America and Rest of the World largely rely on Asia and Europe for imports of CMC to meet their internal demand.

Carboxymethyl cellulose market based on the applications can be categorized into food & beverages, pharmaceutical & cosmetics, oil & gas, paper, detergents, and others (mining, textiles processing, ceramics, paints, construction, and adhesives). Food & beverages is the largest application segment in terms of volume consumed in 2014. It accounted for approximately 31.0% of the global CMC market, in terms of volume consumed in 2014. The growing processed food industry is driving the demand for CMC.

The carboxymethyl cellulose market is highly fragmented market with the presence of large number of global and regional market players. The key market players are focused on expansion and new product launches. The major players in the CMC market include, Akzo Nobel N.V., CP Kelco U.S., Inc., (A Subsidiary Of J.M. Huber Corporation Company), Ugur Seluloz Kimya A.S, Quνmica Amtex S.A. De C.V, The Dow Chemical Company, DKS Co. Ltd., Nippon Paper Industries Co. Ltd, Daicel Corporation, Ashland Inc., and Lamberti S.P.A among others.
