Moreover, around 51% of gluten-free food consumers are adopting it for other reasons. In addition to these, a factor that significantly contributes to the market expansion is the rising demand for detergent. Carboxymethyl cellulose can suspend solid particles in the detergent solution. This is especially useful in laundry detergents, where it helps to keep dirt and other particles suspended, preventing them from redepositing on the garments during the washing process.

Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market: Key Takeaways

  • Market in Asia Pacific to propel highest growth
  • The food & beverage segment to garner the highest growth
  • Market in North America to grow at a highest rate

Increasing Production of Oil and Gas across the Globe to Boost Market Growth

Global crude oil output climbed by around 5% in 2022, much above growth in 2021 which was nearly 1.6%. Carboxymethyl cellulose is a fluid loss control compound that produces a thin, impervious filter cake in the wellbore walls, decreasing fluid loss during drilling. In 2021, the global production of packaging paper and paperboard reached around 264 million metric tons.

Carboxymethyl cellulose is used to improve the characteristics of paper as a coating or surface treatment in the packaging industry. These packagings are then applied in various sectors such as healthcare packaging. Lately, usage of products such as facewashes, moisturizers, exfoliators, and scrubs has increased, around 40% of facial skincare customers across the world use these products more often.  CMC is frequently used to improve the consistency and texture of moisturizers, creams, lotions, and gels.

Growing Food and Beverage Industry to Propel the Growth in the North America Region

The North America carboxymethyl cellulose market is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2035. The increasing demand for processed and convenience foods, along with the need for effective food preservation and texture enhancement, has propelled the use of CMC in the food and beverage sector. The North American food and beverage industry is estimated to grow at a rate of approximately 4.5% by the year 2025. CMC’s ability to improve viscosity, stabilize emulsions, and provide moisture retention has led to its widespread adoption in various industrial applications. In pharmaceuticals, carboxymethyl cellulose is extensively used as a binder in tablet formulations and as a thickener in liquid dosage forms. The continuous research and development efforts to enhance the properties of carboxymethyl cellulose, such as its rheological behavior and solubility, have paved the way for its utilization in novel applications. These advancements contribute to the overall expansion of the North American carboxymethyl cellulose market.

Carboxymethyl Cellulose, Segmentation by Application

  • Detergent
  • Food & Beverage
  • Paper & Pulp
  • Cosmetic
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Paint & Coating
  • Oil Field Drilling Fluid

Amongst these segments, the food & beverage segment is anticipated to hold the largest share over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed growing consumption of packaged food, ready-to-cook meals, and instant noodles. The average American consumes 31% more packaged food than fresh food. Carboxymethyl cellulose is commonly used in food items as a thickening and stabilizer. It aids in the creation of a constant texture and the prevention of ingredient separation in sauces, gravies, and dressings. As consumers prioritize health and wellness, the demand for functional and nutraceutical foods has surged. CMC’s role as a thickening agent and its compatibility with various nutritional ingredients make it suitable for use in these specialized food products. The convenience food sector is experiencing rapid growth due to changing lifestyles and increasing urbanization. CMC’s role in maintaining the quality of convenience foods, such as frozen meals, sauces, and soups, by preventing texture degradation during freezing and reheating processes, contributes to the expansion of this segment.

Carboxymethyl Cellulose, Segmentation by Grade

  • Technical Grade
  • Industrial Grade
  • High Purity Grade

Amongst these segments, the high-purity segment in carboxymethyl cellulose market is anticipated to hold a significant share over the forecast period. The pharmaceutical industry demands exceptionally pure ingredients to ensure the safety and efficacy of drug formulations. High-purity CMC’s compliance with strict quality standards makes it a sought-after choice for pharmaceutical applications such as tablet binding and controlled-release formulations. In the North American pharmaceutical industry, CMC’s application as a binder is expected to reach a value of USD 670 million by 2025, showcasing its integral role in drug manufacturing.

The personal care and cosmetics industry relies on high-purity CMC to achieve precise formulations that deliver consistent results. Its use as a thickening agent and stabilizer in skincare, hair care, and cosmetic products highlights the importance of maintaining purity for optimal product performance. As the food industry focuses on maintaining the integrity of food products, high-purity CMC emerges as a crucial ingredient to meet stringent food safety regulations. Its role in stabilizing and improving the texture of foods necessitates its use in applications requiring the highest levels of purity.
