Methyl cellulose is a hydrophilic chemical molecule derived from cellulose that belongs to the hydrocolloid family. It has a variety of properties, including zero toxicity, non-allergic, and non-irritating properties. They're long-chain substituted cellulose that's made synthetically by treating cellulose with caustic solution and methyl chloride and heating it. They have special qualities that allow them to be employed in a variety of applications, including paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, construction materials, cosmetics and personal care, and more. Lubricants, textile agent, and other applications are some of the others. To give hair shampoos, dental pastes, and liquid soaps their typical thick viscosity, methyl cellulose is occasionally added. methyl cellulose is an important emulsifier that prevents the separation of two mixed liquids. To avoid paint sagging, methyl cellulose is also employed as a rheological modifier. Methyl cellulose is widely used in construction materials as a performance addition. It is used to dry mortar mixtures to improve workability, open and adjustment time, water retention, viscosity, adherence to surfaces, and other qualities.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The COVID-19 epidemic has had a negative impact on global growth estimates for a variety of industries and sectors. The Methyl Cellulose market is no exception.
  • To break the COVID-19 transmission chain, several nations were forced to impose restrictions. All industrial and production facilities that were not absolutely necessary were shut down. Methyl Cellulose production has been reduced as a result of these factors.
  • The market was negatively affected by COVID-19. Due to temporary halts in construction activity caused by government-imposed lockdowns in various countries, demand for Methyl Cellulose which is used in construction materials has declined.

Top Impacting Factors

The increasing relevance of grooming among adults and teenagers is likely to drive market expansion. In the coming years, new product innovation and the rising popularity of various forms of celebrity cosmetics are expected to increase demand for methyl cellulose. Furthermore, increased demand for personal care goods such as shampoo, lotion, and cream, as well as increased use of methyl cellulose in the production of cosmetics and personal care products, are expected to drive market expansion. On the plus side, massive investment in the building and construction sector in both developed and developing countries is expected to boost market growth. In the paper and textile industries, it is also employed as a sizing agent or binder. As a result, the global textile industry's growing growth is predicted to provide profitable potential possibilities for the Global methyl cellulose market. The demand for methyl cellulose is expected to increase in growing Asia Pacific countries such as India, China, Vietnam, and Bangladesh as the industrial and residential construction sectors grow. Furthermore, improving development strategies to meet the demand for methyl cellulose in rising applications, as well as increased raw material availability, greater purchasing power, a more stringent regulatory framework, and lower labor costs, are all essential factors for regional market growth.
