Worldwide Cellulose Acetate Industry to 2026 - Featuring Solvay, Celanese and Daicel Among Others

·5-min read

Dublin, Sept. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Cellulose Acetate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global cellulose acetate market reached a value of US$ 4.02 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to exhibit stable growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Cellulose acetate is a chemical product produced by the reaction of cellulose with acetic acid and acetic anhydride in the presence of a catalyst (sulphuric acid). Cellulose acetate is biodegradable and is used as a replacement of plastics in various industries. The product is primarily used in the production of cigarette filter tow, as it helps in removing tar and nicotine while maintaining favorable taste to the smoker.

Rising number of smokers, particularly in emerging markets such as China and India represents a key factor driving the market. Some of the other major drivers include its rising demand in textiles and apparels, growing usage of cellulose acetate in home furnishing products and its rising application as a biodegradable plastic in various other industries. The industry, however, faces some challenges as well. This includes its declining demand in photographic films and in its major end-application i.e. cigarette filters as a result of the rising awareness on the negative health impacts of smoking.
