 Global Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) Market is anticipated to reach USD 1.86 billion by 2025. Carboxymethyl cellulose is also known as “Sodium Carboxymethyl cellulose” or “CMC”. It is an anionic water-soluble polymer produced from naturally occurring cellulose by the process of “Etherification”. Hydroxyl groups could be substituted with carboxymethyl cellulose chain. The Carboxymethyl Cellulose structural formula is R=H (CH2CO2H).

The carboxymethyl cellulose is odorless, chemically stable, tasteless substance, and physiologically inert. It is non-toxic in nature, and hypoallergenic with high viscosity. The caustic soda, mono chloroacetic acid, and plant-derived cellulose are the raw materials mainly used for manufacturing carboxymethyl cellulose.

The factors that propel the growth of the Carboxymethyl Cellulose industry include growing demand of low-fat food. Moreover, increasing production of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, the rising exploration activities and oil drilling. On the other hand, there are factors that may hamper the growth of the market including the accessibility of eco-friendly substitutes of carboxymethyl cellulose, and strict government regulations.
