The cellulose ether & derivatives market is projected to be worth USD 6.30 Billion, by 2020, registering a CAGR of 7.2% between 2015 and 2020. In this study, 2013 has been considered as the historical year and 2014 as the base year for estimating the market size of cellulose ether & derivatives. The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of cellulose ether & derivatives market across different segments such as product type, application, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is forecasted between 2015 and 2020.

In the secondary research process, different sources have been referred to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers, and certified publications, articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information for this report. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the market size of cellulose ether & derivatives by product type, application, and regions, in terms of value. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. With the data triangulation procedure and validation of data through primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in this study.

Cellulose ether & derivatives is a combination of different raw materials (cotton and wood pulp, additive) and manufacturing process. These raw materials available in the market are supplied by major companies such as the S.A. Enterprises (India), Thermo Mechanical Pulp (U.S.), and Refiner Mechanical Pulp (India) to the cellulose ether & derivatives manufacturers, such as Samsung Fine Chemicals (Korea), AkzoNobel Performance Additives (The Netherlands), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), SE Tylose (Germany), and CP Kelco (U.S.).

This report defines and segments the cellulose ethers market with an analysis and forecast of volumes of each of the applications that is pharmaceutical, personal care, construction, food & beverages, surface coatings & paints applications, for each type of cellulose ether individually. The growth of the personal care industry drives the higher demand for cellulose ethers which has a tremendous potential to do business from low cost regions, for instance, Asia-Pacific.

This study answers several questions for the stakeholders, primarily, which market segments to focus on in the next two to five years for prioritizing the efforts and investments. These stakeholders include cellulose ether & derivatives manufacturers such as the Samsung Fine Chemicals (Korea), AkzoNobel Performance Additives (The Netherlands), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), SE Tylose (Germany), CP Kelco. (U.S.), J. Rettenmaier & Söhne GmbH + Co.KG (JRS) (Germany), Dai-Ichi Kogyo Seiyaku Co., Ltd. (Japan), and Daicel Fine Chem Ltd. (Japan) .
