Cellulose Acetate Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Product (Cellulose Acetate Flakes, Cellulose Acetate Tow), Type (Fiber, Plastic), Application (Extrusion & Molding, Fabrics) and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Cellulose Acetate Market is accounted for $3.70 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $5.91 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Cellulose acetate is a natural type of plastic composed of natural cellulose, resulting from acetylation of cellulose from two sources such as cotton linters or wood pulp. Cellulose acetate is a high-performance thermoplastic used for numerous applications due to its distinctive blend of properties such as high dielectric constant, good chemical resistance, high impact and mechanical strength, and similarity with human skin.
Increasing demand in growing textiles and apparels industry
The changing trends in the fashion industry are preferably one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the global cellulose acetate market. Cellulose acetate is considered to be suitable for textile application as it is comfortable and absorbent as well as can be easily dyed in many different colors. Therefore, increase in demand in the clothing sector due to changes in preferences of the consumers in order to keep themselves trendy and upgraded to the ongoing fashion changes has created a surge in demand and is responsible for the robust growth of the textiles and apparel industry.
Increased awareness of the health problems
Increased awareness of the health problems associated with smoking should be a major obstacle to the growth of the cellulose acetate market. Moreover, the government regulations that ban smoking in public along with the presence of alternatives like electronic cigarettes in is predicted to impede the growth potential in the worldwide market.
Increased industrialization is supposed to create immense growth potential for industry players in the global cellulose acetate market. This is due to the fact that increased industrialization will increase market demand for the product for various applications, which will push manufacturers to produce products in large quantities, thereby creating opportunities. The increasing adoption of advanced cellulose acetate to reduce vulnerability to toxic products during smoking is a factor that should create a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the global cellulose acetate market during the projection period.
Strict government rules
Strict government rules and regulations regarding the health risks associated with smoking are some of the factors that may restrict demand for cellulose acetate and slow growth in the global cellulose acetate market during the assessment period.
The plastic segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The plastic segment is growing at the highest CAGR in the market due to the growth in the product requirements, the growth in developing economies, and the technological developments in different applications. The increasing demand for natural plastics is expected to drive the industry growth in the coming years owing to its characteristics, including strong durability, glistened shine, lustrous texture, and high transparency.
The fiber segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The fiber segment is expected to be the largest share in the market. Acetate is considered to be a very valuable manufactured fiber that is low in cost and has good draping qualities. The fiber-based cellulose type is majorly used in the production of general consumer articles including lining, felts, clothing, upholstery, carpets, umbrellas, and cigarette filters. The staple acetate fibers are also used as partial substitutes for wool in the manufacture of fine fabrics and various kinds of knitwear.
Region with highest share:
The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest share in the market. The situation of manufacturing centers of significant market leaders is the leading cause of Asia’s dominance over the cellulose acetate market. The regional advantages offered by this region such as cheap labor and ease of resource availability are the primary reason for the interest of the key market participants to invest in this region.
Region with highest CAGR:
Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period due to the high economic growth and rapid industrialization. Additionally, lower labor cost is one of the prime factors driving the growth in Asian region. This makes the companies have higher profits as the production costs are minimized.
Key players in the market:
Some of the key players profiled in the Cellulose Acetate Market include Kemira, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, Rayonier Advanced Materials Inc., Sappi Limited, Sichuan Push Acetati Co.,Ltd, Solvay, Arkema SA, BASF SE, Borregaard ASA, Celanese Corporation, China National Tobacco Corporation, Daicel Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, Ecolab, and Acordis Cellulostic Fibers.
In November 2020: Sappi which is the leading company in dissolving pulp has announced a partnership with Birla Cellulose which is a leading manufacturer of the textile value chain. The partnership is aimed at providing a forest-to-garment traceability solution for the brand owners. This partnership will strengthen the company’s sustainability credentials in the textile industry.
