Global Refined Cotton Market: Market Driver and Restraint
The refined cotton is a main material for producing cellulose ethers (for example, CMC, HEC, HPMC, MC), nitrated cellulose (nitro-cotton) and cellulose acetate, and is widely applied in the fields of coating, petroleum exploitation, building materials, textile, food, daily commodities, medicine, papermaking, electronics, aerospace, plastics, and is known as “special industrial monosodium glutamate”.
China is the largest producer of refined cotton, the production status of the country impacts the whole industry directly. Due to the stricter environmental policy in China, production of refined cotton decreases. Besides, the refined cotton produced can't meet the quality demand of the downstream industries. Those issues have resulted in bad effects on the industry.
Global Refined Cotton Market: Key Takeaways
· Supply of refined cotton will shrink further, backed with decreasing demand and supply
· In terms of form, refined cotton can be divided into the industrial grade and food grade. Industrial grade owns more than 805 share
· One of the major challenges for the Refined Cotton market is the environmental issues. The industry will produce large amount of the waste water with pollutant, manufacturers are puzzled by the wastes and have to cost much to those pollutants.
Global Refined Cotton Market: Forecast by Nature
Although the industry is shrinking, rigid demand of refined cotton still exists. Refined cotton is a main material for producing cellulose ethers (for example, CMC, HEC, HPMC, MC), nitrated cellulose (nitro-cotton) and cellulose acetate and so on. Refined cotton will not be easily replaced and has a certain market potential in the short term.
Global Refined Cotton Market: Forecast by Application
Refined cotton has many applications including cellulose ethers, cellulose acetate and nitrocellulose etc. Cellulose ethers are the largest consumption field. In 2017, refined cotton consume amount in cellulose ethers industry was 336.5 kilo ton. Cellulose acetate is the second largest consumption field with consumption amount of 225.6 kilo ton in 2017.
