Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- n its latest study focused on the natural polymers market in the United States, Transparency Market Research estimates that in 2012, the demand for natural polymers was US$4.95 billion, and will grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2012 to 2018, by which year it will stand at US$7.12 billion. The report is titled "Natural Polymers - U.S. Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2018."
An extensive analysis of all of these segments reveals that in U.S. natural polymers market, medical applications trumped all others, with a 25.6% share of the total revenue generated as of 2012. Also, the most extensively consumed type of natural polymer in the U.S. natural polymers market was cellulose ether; it constituted 36.5% of all recorded consumption volumes as of 2012.
The demand for pharmaceuticals is increasing, and as a result, this application area will also witness higher growth. This growth in pharma applications will have a cascading effect wherein the demand for fermentation products and starch will also spike. Cellulose ethers-derived from the photosynthesis of wood pulp, cotton and certain other plant types-are used in a variety of markets like medical, food and beverages, and oilfield operations. Some of the most commonly used types of cellulose ethers include: Methyl Cellulose (MC), Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC), and Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC). According to the estimates of this market study, by 2018, the demand for starch and fermentation products will likely rise to 479.3 kilotons, exhibiting a CAGR of 12% between 2012 and 2018.
