Cellulose is the richest organic compound in the world mostly produced by plants. It is the most structural component in herbal cells and tissues. Cellulose is a natural long chain polymer that plays an important role in human food cycle indirectly. This polymer has multipurpose uses in many industries such as veterinary foods, wood and paper, fibers and clothes, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries as excipient. Cellulose has semi-synthetic derivatives that are extensively used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Cellulose ethers and cellulose esters are two main groups of cellulose derivatives with different physicochemical and mechanical properties.
The global cellulose derivatives market is segmented on the basis of derivative type, derivative grades, end-use application, and region.

These types of derivatives are generally used in shampoos, tooth pastes, and liquid soaps to produce their representative reliability with respect to thickness. “Methyl cellulose derivatives” sector is expected to be the fastest growing one among different product types of cellulose ether. “Methyl cellulose derivative” sector accounts for the largest market share of cellulose derivatives market. Asia Pacific is the largest user of methyl cellulose and derivatives.
Carboxymethyl cellulose finds major use in industrial, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and personal care sectors in the cellulose derivative market. “Carboxymethyl cellulose” sector is expected to grow gradually during the forecast period with maximum market share by 2025. This is due to the surface-active properties of cellulose ether that allows it to act as a thickener and stabilizer in aqueous solutions, making it a beneficial additive in a wide variety of commercial products and industries.
