Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market anticipated to
grow at a significant CAGR in the upcoming period
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.
