Cellulose Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Cellulose Bulk Chemical and Fertilizer USA 4185 USD/MT
Cellulose Bulk Chemical and Fertilizer China 5154 USD/MT

The cellulose market in the USA faced challenges due to a decline in construction industry demand, high labor costs, rising material prices, and a seasonal winter lull. This led to a slight price decline. Despite stable supplies and product availability, market sentiment remained negative. However, the mid-quarter saw a positive shift due to automotive demand and Christmas restocking activities, resulting in cellulose prices reaching 4185 USD/MT in December.

On the other hand, the market in China remained stable with moderate demand and consistent supplies throughout Q4 2023. However, a narrowed demand-supply gap and subdued overseas sales led to significant price fluctuations. Prices increased by a minor margin in November, then declined in December and January. This negative trend, reaching 5154 USD/MT in December, was driven by weak international sales and a narrow demand-supply gap.

Product Description

Cellulose, a polysaccharide found in plant cell walls, is a crucial organic compound with remarkable properties such as strength, rigidity, and insolubility in water. It forms the primary component of plant cell walls, providing structural support and enabling plants to stand upright and withstand environmental stresses.

Cellulose also serves as a dietary fiber for humans, promoting digestive health by adding bulk to stool and facilitating its passage through the digestive tract. Its low-calorie content makes cellulose-rich foods beneficial for weight management and overall health.

Cellulose's unique properties make it an essential product in the paper and textiles sector, as well as in various industries like pharmaceuticals, food, and cosmetics. Its derivatives, such as cellulose acetate and carboxymethyl cellulose, are used in various industries for their film-forming, thickening, and stabilizing properties.
