The United States cellulose acetate market is currently witnessing steady growth. Cellulose acetate refers to a polymer manufactured from the naturally occurring cellulose found in the plant cell walls. It is made up of repeating glucose units that have the formula C6H7O2(OH)3. For manufacturing cellulose acetate, natural cellulose is reacted with acetic acid and acetic anhydride, which are then ground to form a fine powder. Cellulose acetate is biodegradable and a green alternative for plastics used across the globe. It can be processed by dissolving in a solvent and spinning or casting and can also be processed by standard plastics processing techniques in compounded form. It is extensively used in the production of various products such as cigarette filters, films that are used in photographs, sheets, fashion accessories, pen barrels, spectacle frames, and combs.
The United States cellulose acetate market is primarily driven by a rise in the number of smokers. Cellulose acetate is utilized to produce cigarette filter tow as it helps remove tar and nicotine and maintains a favorable taste for the smoker. In the textile and apparel industry, cellulose acetate is used due to its softness, heat-resistance and comfort. It is also used in home furnishing products and as biodegradable plastic in a wide range of industries, which, in turn, is propelling the market growth. Moreover, the US government has banned single-use plastics to reduce pollution. This has led to an increasing inclination toward bioplastics, resulting in high demand for cellulose acetate. On account of these factors, the market is expected to continue its moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
