Methyl cellulose ether & derivatives product type to have the largest market share in the cellulose ether & derivatives market during the forecast period

Cellulose ether & derivatives is the major product types of cellulose ether & derivatives. Methyl cellulose (or methylcellulose) is a chemical compound that is derived from cellulose. It is a hydrophilic white powder in pure form. It dissolves in cold (but not in hot) water, forming a clear, viscous solution or gel. Methyl cellulose is not digestible, not toxic, and not an allergen, making it suitable for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. It helps in controlling several crucial properties of a formulation, such as a rheology, dispersion, water demand, and water retention. It has many practical benefits, including high consistency and workability with low stickiness, high standing strength, and high yield. The methyl cellulose & derivatives market consists of methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, and hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose. The methyl cellulose & derivatives segment has a major share in the global cellulose ethers & derivatives market, owing to its wide acceptability in end-use industries such as construction, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, personal care, etc.

The construction application of methyl cellulose & derivatives segment is expected to account for the largest share in the cellulose ether & derivatives market during the forecast period, in terms of value

Construction is the major application for the methyl cellulose & derivatives product type in the celliulose ether & derivatives market. Cellulose ethers are the premium choice of the construction industry due to the increasing consciousness regarding green chemicals. On other hand, with the advancement of living standards in society and the enhanced awareness of the living environment, health, and safety, naturally derived cellulose ethers have become the first choice to replace the conventional chemicals in the industry. Cellulose ether & derivatives have many functions, which includes their use as a thickener, binder, film former, redispersible powder, air entrainer, hydrophobic agent, preservative, retarder/accelerator, rheology/viscosity in various applications of the construction industry.
