The global cellulosic thickeners market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period from 2021-2028. The major drivers for this growth include the increasing demand for natural food ingredients, growing demand in the pharmaceutical application, and growing preference among consumers for organic products.
Cellulosic thickeners are a class of thickening agents that use cellulose as the primary ingredient. Cellulose is not only obtained from natural resources like wood or cotton but also by recycling waste paper products such as newsprint and office paper, which provides an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based synthetic chemical compositions used in many other types of industrial processes. When added to liquids, cellulosic thickeners form gels that have the ability to hold large amounts of water so they can be useful for creating sauces without needing lots of fat or dairy (think something similar in consistency to tomato sauce).
On the basis of types, the market is segmented into sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, methylcellulose, hydroxyethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, and others.
Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is a type of thickener and an emulsifier. It can be used in sauces, to prevent them from separating or becoming too watery when cooked for long periods of time. This particular ingredient has been popularized by the increasing awareness around food allergies--sodium carboxymethylcellulose helps keep sauce as it should be without adding any other potentially allergenic ingredients such as dairy products like cheese. This makes this product especially useful for people with lactose intolerance or milk allergy issues who want to enjoy their favorite dishes. In addition, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose also provides flavor-enhancing properties that make foods more appealing than they would otherwise taste if served on.
Methylcellulose is a type of cellulosic thickener that can be used to suspend solids and liquids in different food products. It has been one of the most popular ingredients for cooking sauces, soups, and other dishes.
Hydroxyethylcellulose is a water-soluble cellulosic polymer that has laxative properties. It dissolves in acidic solutions and can be used to make ice cream, frozen desserts, salad dressings, whipped toppings as well as other dairy products. Hydroxyethylcellulose can also be found in cosmetics with the purpose of preventing oils from separating or turning rancid during storage.
Microcrystalline cellulose is a form of a man-made chemical compound, often found in the food industry as an additive. It has anti-caking properties and can be used to make flour or breading for fried foods.
On the basis of application, the market is segmented into cosmetic & personal care, toiletries & household products, paints & coatings, paper and paperboard, the food & beverage industry, pharmaceuticals, and others.
Cellulosic thickeners are used in cosmetic and personal care industries to improve the stability of formulations as well as provide viscosity to products. Cellulosic thickeners are widely used in the toiletries and household sector. This is because cellulose has a wide pH tolerance range, which allows it to be stable in acidic or alkaline products like shampoo and dishwashing detergents respectively. It also has good water solubility making it useful for use in personal care products such as shampoos and conditioners.
Cellulosic thickeners are used in paints and coatings for imparting viscosity to the formulation. Cellulosic thickeners are used in paper and paperboard as it is cheaper to produce than synthetic polymers like acrylics. Cellulosic thickeners are used in food and beverages owing to their taste, texture, and flavor properties. Cellulosic thickeners are used in pharmaceuticals as they provide a stable environment for active ingredients.
On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounts for the largest share of the global cellulosic thickeners market owing to its high consumption of paints and coatings as well as toiletries & household products.
The factors driving the growth of this market are increasing demand for natural ingredients and synthetic cellulose, rising number of patent applications in developing countries. The ability of these products to act as an emulsifier has made them popular among manufacturers of paints & coatings, toiletries & household products, cosmetics & personal care, etc., which have led to their wide use across various industries such as food and beverages or pharmaceuticals. However, thickening properties depend on pH level and temperature which can be problematic in some cases; hence leading companies should keep R&D efforts up so that they can keep in tune with the latest developments.
