Carboxymethyl cellulose (also referred as CMC and Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose) can be described as an anionic water-soluble polymer produced from naturally occurring cellulose by etherification, substituting the hydroxyl groups with carboxymethyl groups on the cellulose chain. Carboxymethyl cellulose is used as binder, thickening agent, suspension agent, and bulking agent in variety of application.

In 2017, the global market for carboxymethyl cellulose was 583,782 tons, which is expected to increase by 4.47% from 2018 to 2024. In 2017, the global market value of carboxymethyl cellulose was 1599.2 million US dollars, and it is expected to reach 2254.28 million US dollars in 2024. In general, the market demand for carboxymethyl cellulose is stable. Owing to development in emerging fields such as food and pharmaceutical, the CMC market will be in stable growth in the future.

The market size of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is large, however the concentration of CMC is not quite high. From regional perspective, CMC's production is mainly distributed in Asia and Europe. The supply of carboxymethylcellulose in North America and elsewhere is heavily dependent on these regions for import. Leading companies worldwide include CP Kelco, Ashland, Akzo Nobel, Daicel, Ugur Seluloz Kimya AS, DKS, Dow Chemical,etc. CP Kelco is the world's largest supplier of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in 2017, with a production of 87,691 tons, accounting for 15.02% of global production.

The global Carboxymethyl Cellulose market was 1780 million US$ in 2018 and is expected to 2320 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% between 2019 and 2025.
