Transparency Market Research Report Added "Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market" to its database.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/14/2015 -- Carboxymethyl cellulose is an additive for improving product and processing characteristics in various fields, including pharmaceuticals and food. Carboxymethyl cellulose is often used as its sodium salt, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is used as a viscosity modifier or thickener, and to stabilize emulsions in various products including consumer goods. Carboxymethyl cellulose is known for its excellent water retaining capacity. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose forms films that are resistant to oils, greases, and organic solvents. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is synthesized by the reaction of chloroacetic acid with cellulose.

The polar carboxyl groups render the cellulose soluble and chemically reactive. Carboxymethyl cellulose is also a constituent of many non-food products, such as toothpaste, personal lubricants, laxatives, diet pills, waterbased paints, detergents and various paper products. Carboxymethyl cellulose is used primarily because it is nontoxic, has high viscosity and is not allergic to humans as the major source fiber is either softwood pulp or cotton linter. Cellulose ethers, such as sodium carboxymethyl cellulose are long-chain polymers. Their solution characteristics depend on the average chain length or degree of polymerization as well as the degree of substitution. Carboxymethyl cellulose is primarily used in pharmaceutical, food, ceramics, textiles, coatings, cosmetics and consumer industry.
The growth in end user industries is expected to increase the consumption of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. The increase in consumption of consumer products in emerging economies of Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to boost demand for sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. However, environmental regulations and availability of substitutes could hamper the growth of this market.
