Future Market Insights
Cellulose formed by the chemical modification of the polymers are the cellulose ethers. The cellulose ethers include carboxymethyl cellulose, methyl cellulose, and derivatives, hydroxyethyl cellulose and derivatives, hydroxypropyl cellulose and ethyl cellulose. Cellulose and its derivatives are used in wide industrial applications such as food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals. Ethyl methyl cellulose is a thickener and an emulsifier. It is a cellulose derivative with the ethyl and methyl group attached by ether linkages. It is prepared by treating cellulose with the dimethyl sulfate and ethyl chloride. It is obtained directly from fibrous plant material and is partially etherified with ethyl and methyl groups. Ethyl methyl cellulose is an odorless and tasteless powder, which is slightly hygroscopic in nature. It possesses the European number E465.
Global Ethyl methyl cellulose: Market Dynamics
Ethyl methyl cellulose is prominently driven by the food industry. The market is anticipated to perform well shortly owing to sheer versatility of applications as an emulsifier, stabilizer and foaming agent in food and beverages industry. Expanding food industry globally, demand for food additives, increasing demand for the packaged food, and constant innovation in the food processes are the primary factors driving the growth of global ethyl methyl cellulose market. Moreover, wide use in the food industry especially in jelly products, dairy products, and beverage are some of the major factors fueling the growth of ethyl methyl cellulose market over the forecast period. However, factors affecting the growth of the market are ethyl methyl cellulose which when consumed in large concentration may have health issues such as constipation, diarrhea and bloating. It is restricted to use ethyl methyl cellulose containing products for those who suffer from disease related to the gastrointestinal tract. It is not allowed in the baby food. Availability of better and natural substitutes can also limit the growth of ethyl methyl cellulose market in the forecast period. All the above factors limit the market growth regarding market value share and revenue generation.
